S’porean who signed anti-Adam Lambert petition apologises, misread ‘usher in 2016′ as ‘usher in 1016′

Posted on 27 November 2015

It is only appropriate to persecute gays in 1016, he said, clarifying why he signed petition in first place.


A healthy, morally upright and straight Singaporean man, who experiences varying states of tumescence occasionally against his body’s will, has publicly apologised.

This after he signed the anti-Adam Lambert petition calling on MediaCorp to remove the gay icon from its star-studded Celebrate 2016 countdown show on Dec. 31 to usher in the new year.

However, after signing the petition and sharing the link to it on Facebook, he noticed that he had misread “usher in 2016″ as “usher in 1016″, and realised the petition was not a joke about how gays must be persecuted if this was 1,000 years ago.

The Singaporean man, Koo Gu Jeow, said apologetically: “I initially thought the petition to discriminate gays was to usher in the new year 1016, as a kind of, ‘Haha, this is such a good ironic joke’ thing, now that the end of year is coming.”

“And then I read it again, I realised the petition is meant to be taken seriously, like the petition organisers really wanted to ban gays in 2016.”

“That’s when I realised the folly of my reading skills.”

At press time, the ban Adam Lambert in Singapore petition to usher in 2016 has received more than 13,000 signatures.
