Singapore woman throws Filipina’s phone after being bumped into on crowded MRT


A video of an altercation between two women on a crowded MRT has been trending.

In the video, it appears that a Filipina bumped into a Malay-speaking woman who seems to be a Singaporean. The Malay speaker then threw the Filipina’s phone down in a rage. One of the women can be heard calling the other a “disgrace.”

In the argument that ensued, the Filipina blew up at the Malay speaking woman, screaming “What my phone do to you?!” When the other woman responded in Malay, the Filipina claimed to be a Singaporean and fellow commuters can be heard booing and asking the woman, “Singaporean? Very proud ah?”

Tensions on public transport has been high due to frequent train service breakdowns and delays in recent months. Frustrated commuters have flooded social media with their grievances, with one group starting an online petition pushing Guinness World Records to honour SMRT for Highest Number of Train Delays that went viral.

Responding to widespread complaints, SMRT Trains CEO Lee Ling Wee said in a statement this past week that the organisation has “no choice” but to conduct checks on the new signalling system on the NSEWL during peak hours, even though it may lead to train faults:

“If we were to restrict the performance checks to only weekends, or engineering hours (i.e. 1.30AM – 4.30AM), it would take Singapore years to implement the new signalling system on the NSEWL
“This is why we have no choice but to conduct checks throughout the day, including weekday peak hours, when trains are running at high frequencies with heavy commuter loads.”


  1. Good tat teach these rude ppl a lesson to make them behave properly on public transport. They are always the ones talking loudly, pushing ppl and eating on buses/ trains.

    • Who made them feel like Kings and Queens? Who gave power to the Group behind these? Who to blame? Majority of Singaporeans have themselves to blame.

  2. This Malay criminal still got many supporter ? ..
    – right or wrong become what ? And no one come forward to protect the weak ? …

    – good job we Singaporean ! … have we lost the lovely feel !!!!

  3. Regardless of races if you bumped into other accidentally, just said “I’m Sorry” apologized sincerely save lots of unhappiness to others and yourself. Be polite to others & be Humble will live a happier life.

  4. Cannot change wrong actions to right. Throwing someone’s phone is wrong. Please. We are out of the stone age and expect to behave as civilize first world country. It is a disgrace actions.

  5. Do not have hatred for foreigners working here. Who repair our roads? Who maintain our green garden City? Who clear our garage? Who daily keep our walkways and lifts clean? Who build our flyovers in such a harsh and dangerous work place, who build our schools, universities and home? To blame is the gov who provide quota free in certain categories of job for many FT. They can be some Directors, Managers, Engineers who play politics and like to employ their own kind. Certain categories of foreigners came here to work really very hard for very little. Sometimes companies take advantage of their situations. Those categories we cannot make it without them. They are contruction workers, garbage collectors, gardeners, cleaners, house maker, one long list… Very human being deserve some happiness once in awhile. Do you?

  6. Xenophobia at its worse… Same thing will happen to a Singaporean who is residing overseas. Sad to see how a country I love has turned into such a “barbaric” society…

  7. Why is this article cast in a way to support the one who did wrong? Something is seriously wrong with our country if nationality or race trumps what is right and wrong.

    But then again, some publishers have no choice but to publish positions that support their paymaster’s wishes.

  8. Pinoy throw malay woman phone or malay woman throw pinoy phone? So confused reading the article and hearing the vid. Sounds like malay woman accidentally bump into pinoy, pinoy not happy and throw malay woman hp down.

  9. So next time if a Singaporean ( or their loved one ) bumped into someone while on overseas holiday and got bitten or killed … will those support this Malay speaking … cry shit ?

  10. stupid headline. donno hiw to differenciate which one malay shouting first about her phone being thrown then further exclaiming in malay till the end. pure dissident news la this stomp, “independent” news that i thought should had been sued by the one media ruling here in singapore. i thought need lic to post news? you under sph meh? please report proper news and dont be a tabloid lor.

  11. My comment is to the train breakdown system. It was mentioned that they have no choice but to do the signal testing during peak hours on weekends that have been causing us to be late for work and kena scolded by bosses, late for school, exams, interviews etc. If they don’t do this, it would take years or decade for them to complete the upgrading. However, what have they do during the past decade? Why are they doing the upgrading only now? And charge their delays to our account? Why are we letting them do this to us?

  12. Wonder how the reporter tell that the girl is a Filipina. Filipinos looks like Malay Thai Indonesian and some from Myanmar. She wasnt even speaking Tagalog or any dialect from the Philippines.
