Singaporeans are up in arms over a video posted online showing a reckless cyclist weaving in and out of traffic.

However, online reaction to the cyclist was not caused by his dangerous riding or taunting of the driver who video recorded the incident.

The negativity was surrounding him being Caucasian.

Ben Di Ren, a local, said: “I think he just made it worse by being himself.”

“But honestly, if it was a girl with nice racks, I guess it’s fine.”
