The notorious PRC man who hurled vulgarities at Singaporeans after beating up a Singaporean uncle at Chinatown last weekend is actually a student studying in Singapore.
Using the moniker of ‘Ares Lin’ on a local Chinese locum, he vented his anger online after being involved in a brawl with a group of Singaporeans over a staring incident:
In the title of the thread, Aries described Singaporeans as ‘sb’ , which stands for “Sha Bi” （傻逼) – meaning ‘stupid cunt’ in mainland Chinese slang.
He also rant at Singaporeans as if the entire nation has offended him:
“Please be reminded Singaporeans, you are all descendants of Chinese and the Chinese blood flow in you. Don’t think you have been transformed to ‘Singaporeans’ from ‘Chinese you can be arrogant. Actually you are not even worth a fart!”
When asked by fellow PRC netizens to cool down, Aries retorted:
“If all the mainland Chinese return home, you Singaporeans will have to eat porridge at home everyday.”
Ares revealed in another post on the same forum that he is a student, describing himself as having ‘good living habits’ and does not ‘unhealthy hobbies.’
Ares’ original post was deleted after his remarks made the headlines today in a local Chinese tabloid.
Though the rant brought widespread condemnation from netizens, some felt his words should not be taken too seriously as it was written in a fit of anger.
A week earlier, NUS PRC scholar Sun Xu sparked a near nationwide outrage with his now infamous remarks on there ‘being more dogs than humans in Singapore,’ prompting some to call for his MOE scholarship to be revoked.
The recent public backlash against Sun Xu and Ares Lin may be caused by bottled up unhappiness and grievances among Singaporeans, according to prominent local media analyst Chong Tien Siong (钟天祥)
In an interview with BBC News, Mr Chong said:
“The outburst by netizens may also be a reflection of long pent-up frustrations against the government’s immigration and education policies in recent years.”
It is not known if Ares Lin is studying in a local institution or private school. Judging from his residence and hobbies, he appears to be relatively well to do.
