What happened to the Hwa Chong woman viral video?
In the video, a woman wearing a pink dress and holding a red handbag can be seen holding a mobile phone, seemingly recording a video where she would ask other passengers questions.
The video, which can be seen below, was labeled racist by the uploader.
The incident happened on the East-West train line. She spoke to the other passengers in a condescending manner, saying she would never “never mix around with you guys because we’re so different”.
She also declared proudly that she was from “Hwa Chong JC” and asking other passengers about their educational attainment.
She asked the commuters seated in front of her, “You guys want to tell me where, which JC, you’re from?”
Without waiting for a response, she continued to make judgments and statements such as “Now, he was from NUS, I was from Calgary, in Alberta, Canada, in case you don’t know. Alright.”
Afterwards, she cut herself off from her tirade, and asked, “Hi, erm, may I know your race?”
One of the people in the vicinity appeared to have answered her, and the woman said disdainfully, “Malay is it? Okay, no wonder.”
She then continued to make racially-charged statements and spoke about unknown people as well as some of the passengers on the train as if she knew them and their histories. She then allegedly counted the number of Malays that were visible on the train with her, and made statements that accused people around her of harassment.
Police investigations have been launched in connection to the video.
