Singapore gets protester-- in New York
Some commuters have sent in emails and pictures of the man to Stomp, the popular Singapore citizen journalism website.
They say that he has been doing it for some weeks now. One of them, identified only as Edwin, said that the man had apparently lost his job in Singapore, is unhappy, and had decided to try and paint a bad impression of Singapore to tourists at the famous Times Square.
Another reader of Stomp - JJLim - said he saw the man while on holiday in New York City. He said: “My wife and I were on holiday in New York when we saw this strange guy near Times Square, New York. Holding a self-written cardboard, he displayed unfounded accusations at our Prime Minister and our nation.”
The story on Stomp attracted the ire of readers who have expressed their displeasure on the website.
Readers have commented on Stomp that the man is a “clown” and a “loser”.
