A Singaporean man was flamed online for “bullying” a Chinese Food Republic worker who apparently could not speak English. Interestingly, it was the Singaporean himself who shot the video that shows his exchange with the worker.

In the video, a Chinese woman can be seen working at a stall as the man shooting the video can be heard saying, “Don’t ask me to speak Mandarin okay? You don’t ask me to speak Mandarin. You come to Singapore to work. This is my country. I’m Singaporean. Okay, you must learn how to speak English.”

The man continues: “And here we have another problem with Government’s policies – bringing in foreign workers. In this case, this lady is from China and she cannot understand English. I’m just trying to get her to separate this-“

At this point the woman who appears frustrated begins to complain to another customer about what was going on. Undeterred the man shooting the video says, “Go back to your country okay? This is my country. I am Singaporean okay?”

He adds, “This is another case of the Government’s fault lah. Bringing in foreigners and giving us Singaporeans trouble.”

While some netizens newly responding to the video agreed that the front-line workers should learn English, others showed their support for the worker and criticised the Singaporean for “bullying” her:
