VIDEO: PRC woman scolds Singaporean elderly aunties on bus over priority seat

Posted by temasektimes on July 25, 2012

A middle-aged PRC woman was filmed scolding two Singaporean elderly aunties on a SBS Transit bus over a priority seat:

The PRC woman was overheard shouting at her top of her voice about the ‘nasty people’ of Singapore and the bus captain eventually had to stop the bus and mediate.

Two years ago, a PRC family of five ‘hijacked’ SBS bus number 138 for five hours over the bus captain’s refusal to allow them to bring up a wheelchair, forcing other passengers to leave the bus.

The Singapore police dared not arrest them for causing a public nuisance and even ‘escorted’ them down the bus after SBS agreed to pay for a cab to fetch them home.

Watch the shocking video below:
