SINGAPORE – On April 19, a video of a commotion between a security guard and a woman went viral after it was posted on All Singapore Stuff’s Facebook page.
Recorded by witness Alex Lim, the video showed how the spat started at an eatery which appears to be at Bugis Street.
The video has gathered more than 6,000 shares and 1,000 comments since it was uploaded.
The video first shows the security guard (in a black shirt) yelling. At the time, the cause of the argument was unknown.
A woman seated at a nearby table looks up several times and appears to notice this commotion. Nonetheless, she seems not take it to heart and continues eating.
Unable to control his spiraling anger, the guard attempts to overturn the woman’s table while she is still eating.
This act infuriates the woman and she pickes up a stool, wanting to hurl it at the guard. Fortunately, she is stopped by a woman bystander in black.
With the chair-flinging attempt having been unsuccessful, she tries to fling a drink at the guard.
Displeased, the guard starts yelling at the woman.
Yet, he eventually apologises.
Unpacified, the woman shouts obscenities at him and grabs her bag to leave. The guard reciprocates the profanity.
Throughout the entire commotion, people in the eatery can be seen trying to mediate the situation. Eventually, police are called in to solve the problem.
Regarding this, netizens’ reactions seemed to be mostly one-sided, where many pinned the blame on the security guard.
However, there were also pockets who applauded the woman’s courage in standing up for herself.
