Bishan-Toa Payoh PAP MP Zainudin Nordin increased his visibility overnight after posting a Facebook status update that contains the words “gang rape”.

His status update showcases a pseudo-intellectual quote taken from American author Terry Goodkind and it is meant to illustrate something more high and mighty, but unfortunately, came off looking cryptic and inappropriate.

The lack of substantiating personal comments by the MP made it look even worse, like he endorsed gang rape, said Singaporeans who reacted viscerally to the post.

However, Singaporeans from all walks of life interviewed by New Nation said the lack of context was not the only issue that they had with the post.

One Singaporean, Tiang Lai Eh, said: “If the MP wanted to become famous, he should have recited the public announcement on MRT trains in four languages.”

“People will clap and say he very clever. No need talk about what democracy and gang rape.”
