SINGAPORE - A Facebook post put up by a man who refers to himself as a gangster is gaining traction on social media because of his act of kindness. 

In the post put up yesterday (Feb 11), the Facebook user who goes by the name of Kai Sheng Si said that he had assisted a visually impaired man at a train station get to his desired destination. 

Mr Kai, who had parked his car at Bugis with the intention of taking a train to Orchard, said that he had spotted the blind man walking around the station - seemingly lost and helpless - for about four minutes. 

During that time, Mr Kai claimed that many other commuters had walked away, instead of rendering help to the man.

He also said that none of the MRT staff were there to help.

So seeing that the man was in need of help, Mr Kai and his friends decided to guide him. Beyond that, they took the train and travelled with him to Tanjong Pagar MRT, which was where the blind man was headed to.

Mr Kai suggested that he is often looked down upon as a "low life gangster" because of his tattoos, and in his post, he expressed disappointment at those who didn't bother to help. 

"We look bad. But we are still better than you," he ranted. 

"(T)o those who look down on us. This is for u," he added. 

The post has generated 23k likes since and has been shared over 6,800 times, with many commending him for his good deed.
