Singapore ― Amid the ongoing workplace harassment allegations against Night Owl Cinematics (NOC) co-founder Sylvia Chan, the company has released a four-page statement explaining the situation.
An Instagram page @sgcickenrice began sharing allegations against Ms Chan last week, with screenshots and audio clips of the 33-year-old Singaporean YouTuber hurling expletives on her employees.
Based on the posts, Ms Chan reportedly called one of their talents named Samantha “f*cking dumb” and planned an “exit strategy” for her.
On Monday (Oct 11), NOC uploaded a statement on Instagram, consisting of four pages explaining that the company believes the accusations were made to harm the company’s reputation.
It added that the “cherry-picked” clips and screenshots posted online between “private individuals” will be investigated by authorities.
“We will continue to welcome any constructive feedback to create a better atmosphere for all of us. However, we will not stand for the spirit and soul of our company to be defeated by traversed and malicious attacks by faceless individuals,” said NOC.
Instagram page @sgcickenrice uploaded a photo on Monday highlighting it has received a lawyer’s letter.
“Utterly disappointed with the response,” commented Instagram user fluffyfloxxy, the statement receiving over 3,080 likes.
“The accusation: Sylvia mistreated NOC members. This statement: There has been a deliberate attack on NOC family,” said another netizen garnering over 2,380 likes.
“I used to have mad respect for Sylvia who worked hard with Ryan and all their staff to bring NOC to where it is today, after reading this msg, however, I lost my respect for Sylvia, nothing more to say,” said a netizen.
Meanwhile, Instagram user rainial.co wondered why there was no mention of Ms Chan in the statement.
“Aren’t the allegations against Sylvia and not NOC? I understand if the company suffered from this, but why’s there no mention from Sylvia if she’s the one with the allegations?”
NOC’s four-page statement are as follows:
