Teenage blogger Amos Yee, has grabbed international media attention again when he was featured in the US-based political talk show, The Rubin Report. The video-blogger who has about 40,000 subscribers on his Youtube channel Brain and Butter, is facing charges for posting anti-religious content on his Youtube and for failing to show up to Court.
In talking to Rubin, Amos styled himself as atheist who specialises in refuting religion by using its own teachings (via the Bible or the Quran). Amos further discussed the recent charges and claimed that he has been targeted by the government because he is a “political threat”.
The teenager also talked about his prior charges for which he was sentenced to 55 days in prison after mocking Singapore’s first Prime Minister , and suggested that the Singapore authorities were using religion to prosecute him because they “don’t want to take me down for mocking politicians because foreigners wouldn’t like it.”
