“I am a high-class person. You are lowly filth! I am your master!” Man screams at commuter who snatched his seat


A video of two commuters arguing over a seat on an MRT train has been circulating on social media. The video, which was posted on Facebook by Philip Meow Eng Toon, was reportedly shot on a train travelling on the East West Line. It is unclear, however, exactly when the incident occurred.

In the video, an infuriated commuter in a white shirt can be seen screaming at a man in a blue shirt. The man in white hurls vicious insults at the man in blue and continues to do so, despite the efforts of another commuter in glasses who tries to calm him down.

It appears that the issue was over a seat that the man in blue allegedly snatched from the man in white. The man in blue, however, pointed out that there are other free seats in the MRT compartment but this did not appease the man in white.

The video begins with the man in white screaming at the man in blue: “I am a high-class person. You are lowly filth!…I am your master!”

To this, the man in blue sharply replies: “I give birth to you! You are a bastard!”

Angry, the man in white continues shouting and says, throughout the video: “You are a dog…You dare to touch me? You are just a lowly dog!…I won’t let you off.”

At one point, the man in white takes out his mobile phone and appears to film his opponent. Soon after, an SMRT employee can be seen stepping in, trying to diffuse the situation.

Still incensed, the man in white calls the other man “lowly trash” and “country dog,” before telling the SMRT employee that the other man had threatened him with a weapon.

The man in white momentarily leaves with the SMRT employee before returning and resuming the argument. As the pair begin accusing one another of physical assault, the commuter in glasses steps in and says, “Enough is enough. Don’t say anything else,” before the video abruptly ends.

  1. The man in white is a Sinkie. The man in blue appears to be an Ah Tiong.
    In Singapore, there is tension between the PRCs and local Chinese. Go visit Peoples Park Complex. It is now peopled by PRCs who are cocky and acts like Singapore is a city in a China province. Lots of them are working there and it is suspected that not a small number do so without work permits. Where are the lazy fellas from the MOM and other relevant government bodies?

    • Old man’s legacy, blame it all on him that he set up the country with, elitism and eugenics, also a ploy to create his dynasty and the right of familee to rule over others.
      You are dafts while I am natural aristocrats.

  2. I recognise the guy in white. He goes to community centres and the public libraries and make a nuisance of himself.

    One time, he talked loudly to a library user who felt so uncomfortable with him, but were too polite to tell him “I want to read the newspaper, can you stop talking to me?”

    In the end, someone complained to the library staff who went over to tell him to “Please be quiet while inside the library”. This happened at the library in NEX. I was there.

    Another incident happened at Ang Mo Kio Community Centre…also talking to strangers who were just too polite to tell him to shut up.

    Confirmed. He’s a mentcal case. Btw, he dressed very well all the time, like some high class Shenton Way senior manager, but he’s mental…

  3. Wonder what the PAP elites are doing while these two fools fight it out? Counting their loot from the recent budget?

    Dafts wake up, why subject yourselves in the punching ring that the greedy MIW set you up with? They are already laughing away with your money!

  4. This…. Called class???
    Met with this incident, some few hours ago…
    Train reaching destination…
    Wheeled forward to aligh
    A family of 4 came up beside. Of 4, 2 elders and 2 youngsters. 2 pairs of couples.
    Gave way to elders, I thought. I executed it.
    Young lady helped elder man off the train. Good.
    Elder man helped out. Walked on his own. Zig zag a little…here and there…
    I mindfully wheeled out. 2 castors nearly wedged. Gave it a little more power to wheel it all out. Stop millimeters behind elder man’s heel.
    Lectured by young man on platform. Lectured again, immediately after I left the card reader.
    Opportunistic huh?
    Wanted to be famous… huh?
    There weren’t shy of cctvs everywhere…
    Gave you some right level kindness. Never expected any level for return. You’re all over to bark. Again to bark and ready to bite…
    That’s it.
    You guys should have given me the priority.
    Young man, paused. I wheeled away.
    Even, I have given you guys the priority. Have you guys given me the space?
    Graciousness works better with giving and taking at the same time.
    Only with giving alone, aren’t many of us asked for too much?

  5. What does it take for Singaporeans to give up their seats on public transportation? They are either glued to their phones or pretending to be asleep. Have these people no shame? I am a 69 year old tourist and in the past 3 weeks while using public transport, only twice have I been offered a seat; once by a Caucasian lady and another time by a Malay lady. Thank you ladies, well brought up
