Although it is unclear exactly when the dispute occurred, netizens responding to the video have opined that it looks like the fight happened on a Sunday since some of the witnesses that can be seen in the video look like fellow migrant workers and foreign domestic helpers.

Some others added that Paya Lebar resembles another country altogether on Sundays, alluding to the fact that many foreign workers congregate in the area on their off days.

While some netizens are speculating that the fight was over a woman, others have urged these netizens to avoid making such assumptions since no concrete details about the incident has emerged so far:
