‘Good’ friend of Lai Shimun now ‘regrets’ sabotaging her by sharing her ‘racist’ tweet

Posted by temasektimes on March 28, 2012

It was supposedly a private tweet visible only to her circle of friends, but Alice (not her real name) felt so peeved off that she re-tweeted it to teach her good friend Lai Shimun a lesson and probably one which she will never forget in her life.

The ‘racist’ post by Ms Lai went viral in cyberspace in hours, sparking a massive outcry among Singaporeans and a police report was lodged against her.

Speaking to queries from the media, Alice now has second thoughts about her actions:

“I just want to teach her a lesson…I didn’t know that this will get so big. I feel kind of guilty.”

Alice were schoolmates with Ms Lai at Catholic Junior College. She said she didn’t want to confront her directly because she knew her personally and they have many mutual friends.

Till today, Ms Lai is probably still kept in the dark on the identity of ‘Alice’ who turned her life upside down at the press of a button.

(We have received a tip-off that the real name of ‘Alice’ is ‘Celia’. If you have more information about her, please email us at temasektimes@yahoo.com)

Police report lodged against NYP student Lai Shimun for posting racist remarks on Twitter

Ms Lai is currently pursuing a diploma in Radiotherapy at Nanyang Polytechnic. Though she has removed the tweet, it has been widely circulated on social media, prompting one angry Singaporean to lodge a complaint to her polytechnic and to the police as well:

In 2008, a blogger was arrested and subsequently jailed for posting a similar racist remark on his blog:

“There he sat, unaffected by his surroundings, smelling like he didn’t showered (sic) in years and wore some really scary dirty clothes,” he wrote before proceeding to make “offensive” comments about the man’s race.

The new controversy was ignited hours barely after NUS PRC scholar Sun Xu was let off with a warning and fine for posting offensive remarks on there ‘being more dogs than humans in Singapore.’

As Ms Lai is NOT a MOE PRC scholar, she is unlikely to get away with simply a ‘counseling session’ and a fine for her online misdemeanor.
