A netizen’s probable attempts to gain a little street cred backfired after he posted a video of himself scolding a Starhub employee who visited his home to conduct a check on home internet services.
In the video, the man can be heard using profane language against the Starhub employee in what appears to be an unprovoked attack.
The man filming the 41 second video, Facebook user Desmond Koh, first asks the Starhub employee “So you go around knocking people’s door lah?” when the staff introduced himself.
When the staff confirms this, Koh can be heard saying “I don’t appreciate that.”
Taking a hint, the employee says “no problem” and moves to leave when Koh says, “F!@$ off, okay?”
The staff mumbled “sure” and hurried away.
Koh proudly published the video on social media, but soon removed it after he was widely condemned online.
Netizens excoriated Koh, that he could have just told the employee to leave if he was not interested instead of being needlessly rude to the young man who was probably just trying to do his job and make ends meet.
