Stinkypore? It wasn't me

Stinkypore? It wasn't me
Mr Yu claims that he was framed by his former tenant, who is taking revenge because he didin't return the rental deposit to him.

He's being slammed for making derogatory comments about Singaporeans on his Facebook page.

But he claims that he neither set up that page nor make those comments. And he thinks he knows who's responsible for it, after having had a previous run-in with that person.

So he has lodged police reports against the person impersonating him. Since last month, some Singaporeans have been upset over the offensive posts posted on the Facebook status timeline of a person called Yu Fei.

He allegedly referred to Singaporeans as "Stinkyporean" and Singapore as "Stinkypore".

The comments were allegedly made in response to an article titled "PR: Why I Don't Want To Be A S'porean" on The Real Singapore website, which was shared on Facebook.

He allegedly wrote: "I understand where you are coming from. Who the hell wants to be known as a Stinkyporean speaking a stinky Singlish accent, eats chicken rice all day and drinks from some cheap plastic bag from some s*** old hawker centre...

"Come on people, let's get real. Stinkypore is nothing but a bunch of shopping malls, fake facades, and worst of all, fake humans programmed by the government of stinkypore..."

When Madam Rubi Lin, 55, a housewife, saw the posts, she was "hopping mad".

She said: "He's so pissed off with the people, the government, why would he want to be here?"

When contacted, the 34-year-old manager, who wanted to be known only as Mr Yu, claims it was a fake Facebook account created using his name and that he found out about it only after his friend alerted him at the end of last month.

Mr Yu said he is a China-born Singaporean who was raised here and has served national service.

He told The New Paper that he made a police report about it on Oct 1.

A police spokesman confirmed that a police report was made.

The offensive remarks have since been deleted and the Facebook account removed.

Mr Yu believes that the impersonator is a former sub-tenant he had some runins with.
