Outrage over ‘poor’ jibes

Comment on this story

A British wealth manager in Singapore is facing death threats, government criticism and public anger after his social media posts about the “stench” of mixing with “poor people” on public transport and being reunited with his Porsche went viral.

Anton Casey has been forced to hire a public relations firm in a bid to fend off the growing outrage over his Facebook posts.

“Ahhhhhhhhh reunited with my baby,” said the caption of a photo he posted on Sunday, in which his son sits inside his sports car. In another photo his son sits inside the intra-city train with the caption “Daddy, where is your car & who are all these poor people?” – Reuters
