#NUS hauls up China scholar over 'dog' comment

#NUS hauls up China scholar over 'dog' comment

The Chinese undergraduate called the “uncles” he encountered in Singapore “annoying”, griping that they often stared at him and “complained endlessly” when he accidentally brushed past them. He then added in his Weibo post: “There are more dogs than people in Singapore”. The remarks of Mr Sun Xu, 25, who comes from China and is a Ministry of Education scholar, went viral on the Internet. Disgruntled netizens called him “ungrateful” and “unappreciative”, with some even saying that he should be expelled from the country. His university, the National University of Singapore, told The New Paper that it does not condone Mr Sun’s “disrespectful comments”, and have met and counselled him. Read the full story in The New Paper on Wednesday (Feb 22).
