In a Facebook post, Minister Shanmugam responded to Preeti Nair’s video. He said, “When you use 4-letter words, vulgar language, attack another , put it out in public, we have to draw the line and say not acceptable”.

He also added that it was meant to “make minorities angry with Chinese Singaporeans”.

But it’s totally another, in fact, very wrong to rub salt and respond with such disgrace and spite. Just because it rhymes doesn’t mean it’s harmless!” -/TISG
