Prominent blogger mrbrown or Lee Kin Mun shared a photo following Hsien Loong’s National Day Rally, calling out the freshmen at Nanyang Technological .

NTU is currently investigating inappropriate student behaviour at one of its freshman orientation camps.

A video that was shared on Instagram featured students making obscene gestures, such as pointing towards their crotch and gyrating their hips. Students can be seen pumping and gyrating their hips and pointing to their pelvic areas while repeatedly saying the word “kukubird,” which is a reference to the male sexual organ.

mrbrown shared the following statement made by PM Lee: “We want every Singaporean son and daughter to have the opportunity to receive a good education and start well in life, regardless of family circumstances”.

He then juxtaposed a screengrab of PM Lee with an image of the freshmen at NTU.

Universities’ orientation games also drew flak back in 2016, due to complaints that camp cheers and games were being unnecessarily sexualised. At the time, some freshmen at the National University of Singapore (NUS) were pressured into participating in games at various orientation camps. During these activities, one female student was asked whose bodily fluids she would like to drink, while another watched her peers re-enact an incestuous rape scene.
