One of the two has got to explain it – either The (ST) social media administrator has gone rogue, or someone has hacked the ST widget. But ST’s newsfeed which showed  ‘President Tan invites Thailand’s new king to visit Singapore to eat KFC’ in Facebook, has made some to wonder if the news was indeed published by the mainstream media.

Because of his slightly overweight figure and slicked back silver hair, some netizens have suggested that President Tan looks like the mascot of the restaurant, Colonel Sanders.
