A 22-YEAR-OLD man is under investigation for making racially insensitive remarks on Facebook while posing as a woman with the fictitious name of Heather Chua.
The comments targeting Malays last week caused an outcry among netizens.
Yet to be named, he is assisting police with investigations.
The “Heather Chua” moniker gained notoriety online from early last year after numerous posts denigrating, among other groups, the poor and the lower-income.
“She” also hit out at Institute of Technical Education graduates, public housing residents and national servicemen.
Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, meanwhile, has praised the police for establishing the true identity of Heather Chua. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
