No one gets physically hurt online.

Singaporeans from all walks of life and with various levels of intellect, were relieved to learn that ‘Ah Boys to Men’ star Ridhwan Azman hits his girlfriend online.

This after they read a headline in Yahoo! News saying “‘Ah Boys to Men’ star Ridhwan Azman admits to hitting girlfriend online“.

The 19-year-old, who played Ismail Mohammed in the hit movies on Singapore’s national service, had specifically admitted to hitting his girlfriend on social media.

One Singaporean, Wah Jin Kiang, explained that violence online should not be tolerated — because it can be ignored: “It is the same as ‘Poking’ somebody via Facebook. It is a virtual poke, so no one gets hurt. Plus, you can always ignore it and don’t poke back.”
