Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Grace Fu was called out earlier today for being part of the anti-chope movement, the cause that hopes to educate Singaporeans and discourage them from reserving seats at food courts and hawker centres.
Fu was called out for allegedly having a plainclothes policeman ‘chope’, or reserve a parking lot for her during a community event.
What an honour to stand with Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports Ms. Grace Fu. While she holds up one…
Many netizens were also up-in-arms because they felt that the ‘chope’ culture was intrinsic to Singapore. Foreigners who commented on the movement on Facebook also added that it was actually something they admired.
Others also equated ‘choping’ seats to speaking Singlish and they added that the ‘anti-choping’ movement was actually against Singapore culture.
There were also some who laughed off the movement and said that it could hardly be considered activism.
