A group of foreigners were the talk of social media after a netizen, Benson, uploaded a video of them sharing a bag of potato chips on the MRT.

The group of about five men were all seated and eating their chips. Curiously, one netizen took a two-minute long video of the incident and shared it on social media. At no point in the video did anyone go up to them and ask them to stop eating.

The video went viral within a couple of hours, and commenters were divided into two camps – half angry that this group was munching on the train, and the other half rolling their eyes at Benson who could’ve just told the group to alight and finish their chips, or stop them from eating on the train.
