The passenger, known only as Chen, said the driver was being disrespectful by putting up the sign, according to Singapore’s Lianhe Wanbao.

“The taxi service is disappointing! So the taxi driver can reject ferrying a passenger if he passes wind in the taxi?” she said.

The driver’s taxi company said he had put up the sign without the knowledge of the company and was later asked to take it down.
