A video of an apparently drunk Indian man verbally abusing a group of Filipino women has been making the rounds online.

The man, who claims to be living at a nearby block of flats, seems upset at the noise the women were allegedly making. The video begins with the man already scolding the women, and does not show the cause (if any) of his diatribe.

The women sat quietly and went about their activities as the man continued to make vulgar references about them. He also threatened to slap them if they did not stop making noise.

It is unacceptable that the man, whether he was drunk or not, should cast such vulgar and racial slurs on the Filipino women.

Under Section 509 of Singapore’s Penal Code, it is an offence to use words or gestures to insult the modesty of a woman.

The law states: “Whoever, intending to insult the modesty of any woman, utters any word, makes any sound or gesture, or exhibits any object, intending that such word or sound shall be heard, or that such gesture or object shall be seen by such woman, or intrudes upon the privacy of such woman, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to one year, or with fine, or with both.”

It is unclear if any police reports have been made against the man.

Here is the video, with the insulting parts censored.
