Bahaya Facebook

British banker fired, escapes to Australia after his remarks on 'poor' Singapore on Facebook.

A Singapore-based UK banker, Anton Casey, who triggered massive public outrage over his Facebook remarks insulting Singapore residents, has been dismissed from his post and forced to flee to Australia.

His employer Crossinvest (Asia) Pte Ltd and Casey “parted ways”, the company indicated on Saturday, as quoted by AFP.

"Those comments go against our core corporate and family values that are based on trust, mutual understanding and are respectful of diversity," the company’s statement said.

Anton Casey, 39, married to a former Singapore beauty queen, has gone to Perth, Australia, in the wake of the scandal.

Casey has permanent residence in Singapore which he calls his adopted home, and claims he received death threats after posting his “poor people” comments on Facebook, referring to Singapore commuters.

One of the posts was a picture of a boy who is apparently Casey’s five-year-old son sitting inside a metro train, with a caption above his head reading: “Daddy, where is your car & who are all these poor people?”
In another post, Casey complained about “the stench of public transport” while his Porsche was in the garage.
