    PRC scholar Sun Xu is facing calls for his MOE scholarship to be revoked over comments he made online. He has also been counselled by NUS and is due to face a disciplinary board for breach of the university's code of conduct.

    The 25-year-old has since apologised and taken his comments down from social networking site Weibo, calling them 'insensitive and inappropriate'. He had posted the comments originally on Feb 18.

    In an earlier article, STOMPer dermatog had came across Sun Xu's online post complaining about Singapore 'uncles' who stare and complain when you brush past them. He also said that 'there are more dogs than humans here'.

    STOMPer NoFreeLunch wrote:

    "Good job NUS, for taking a serious view on this guy's conduct. I think there is a limit to how much people should get away with.

    "This 25-year-old scholar clearly does not value his position here. He studies on taxpayers' expense, yet still has the gall to make such derogatory statements about people here.

    "I'm happy to hear that NUS has decided to haul him up for disciplinary action. I hope these findings will be made public, as I wish to know whether someone like him will continue to study here at our government's expense.

    "His flippant comment shows his prejudices against local people here. You don't expect a leopard to change its stripes so easily."

    STOMPer Ashley wrote:

    "This Sun Xu feller should really be expelled from NUS. His comments are uncalled for, and really show that he has no love for our country or its people.

    "Do you expect him to suddenly develop a sense of patriotism towards Singapore as soon as he graduates?

    "Nonsense. This guy should lose his scholarship with immediate effect, as a strong signal to foreigners that we want only those who genuinely wish to make a life here.

    "Imagine if someone like this becomes a teacher or gets into a position of power at MOE. There's no telling what he'll try to pull. Remember, it will be your sons and daughters who will be studying or working under this guy in the future."

    It is sad to have a scholar with poor attitude, knowing and living in his own nutshelf, ignoring external feelings, caring on his own imaginations and selfish thoughts, irregardless of how people may reacted thru his undesirable outspoken words which caused an outburst, disrespectful to the people of my own country.
    Even when we travel to other country, we shown due respect to the people.
    It is really very shameful for him to do that, he embarrassed his own country by doing that.

    On what basis? Is VRZone a PRC company which he paid monthly fees to, which VRzone then used to pay me?

    But no, I am not calling him a dog. I'm saying that being ungrateful is a behaviour worse than a dog's. I dislike his behaviour, but I do not hate him as a human being.

    How come no one stand forth n explain the rational of paying for them when they insulted the citizens as a whole.

    We are paying hundreds of thousands for such 'talented' people and yet we are getting this?

    Looks like all going to be down play by garmen red tape again...
