Singapore — A woman has said online that controversial blogger has filed an Expedited Protection Order and a Stop Publication Order against her.

The woman has sought legal help and reports that she is being represented pro bono by the firm of noted lawyer .

Xiaxue, who is 36 and also known as Wendy Cheng, has been making waves online for many years and has quite a following. She has had a resurgence of sorts this year.

In July, she wrote an Instagram story about Workers’ Party politician Raeesah Khan that said: “Oops guess it wasn’t a good idea to stir up racist sentiments was it? I’m not a fan of the lack of freedom of speech we have in Sg, but I love it that whether you post woke or anti-woke comments, the gov’t is gonna come after you all the same…. stop fielding radical feminists/leftist as candidates ffs we don’t need their poison infecting our politics.”

Two police reports were filed against Ms Khan for comments she made online in 2018 and this year concerning race and religion. She has since apologised publicly more than once and was given a stern warning by the police on Sept 17.

On the same day, the police said they would not be taking action against Xiaxue.

Some people who were unhappy with Xiaxue’s IG story about Ms Khan called for a boycott of the blogger. This led to the hashtag #PunishXiaxue to trend and there were calls for companies to drop her as an endorser. A number of them did.

Xiaxue, however, may not be done with the matter quite yet. On Thursday (Sept 24), a woman going by Black Lives Matter @elouease on Twitter announced that the blogger had taken against her.

She wrote:

While the details surrounding the Xiaxue has taken against @elouease have been scant, the latter described herself as “a 21-year old student with no prior legal experience” and wrote that the experience has not been a “pleasant” one.

She then found out that the blogger had filed another order against her, after which she engaged the legal firm of Mr Thuraisingam to represent her. It is acting for her pro bono.

@elouease added more details about her experience

She added that it has been “a wild ride” and thanked those who have supported her.

 

@elouease wrote that she could not write much about the context of the legal proceedings as they are still ongoing.

However, one clue as to why @elouease ended up in Xiaxue’s crosshairs is that she had  tweeted on July 10: “all brands and labels that have dropped xiaxue. now in collage form”. This was picked up and published by the Malay Mail and the Malaysia edition of Yahoo! news.

The tweet is no longer available. /TISG
