"Who does he think he is?"
"This is probably not the first time expatriates here have insulted Singaporeans. These remarks posted online have been circulating around from an expat living here.
"As a Singaporean, I am very much concern with such increasing trend."
"I want to share this because I was disgusted by what he said in his facebook and text message which was posted on facebook."
"I saw this on my friend's facebook wall and got so disappointed."
"How can say like that?"
"Not something you should say but keep to yourself.
"I was on facebook and one of my relatives posted this. I think that it is not a right thing to say. This is a really hurtful thing to say."
Muhamad Syafiq added:
