Ng’s photo quickly went viral with over 500 reactions and nearly 800 shares on social media. Another page that re-posted the picture garnered an additional 746 reactions and almost 360 shares.

The majority of residents responding to the picture have flamed NTUC fairprice for the poster which appears to be a typographical error.
