“One of your staffs has made comments about Singaporeans Edz Ello has made disparaging comments. I am worried for Singaporean patients under his care.

He may do harm due to his hated for them. I would strongly urge you to sack him for making inappropriate comments online. I hope you have HR policies that deal with such thing. Although he is not speaking as an Tan Tock Seng Hospital employee, he is working in a healthcare industry that have many sick Singaporeans. There are many cases when people in the healthcare industries betrayed the trust the patients had on them by doing something nasty to him. His online behavior profiles him as one such person…”

The hospital’s fanpage administrator reply to the commenters was a standard, “We do expect our staff to be respectful and professional at all times. Thanks for bringing this to our attention and rest assure we will look into this.”

This is not the first social media incident involving Singaporeans and Filipinos.

Just last year, Singaporeans took offense to the proposed celebration of the Philippines Independence at Ngee Ann City and was ultimately cancelled due to the police’s advise.

Also, a blog was created after the incident to “teach” how to discriminate Filipinos But the blog was subsequently taken down by and the Philippine embassy expressed concern over the incident.

Update: Tan Tock Seng hospital has updated on its fanpage that the concerned staff is one of its nurse and he has reported that his facebook account was being hacked.

“Dear all, the staff concerned is one of our nurses. He has reported to the police that his Facebook account has been hacked. We are cooperating with the police on the investigation. Thank you for the alerts and concern.”
