Community CSI peel Brit wealth manager layer by layer after derogatory FB post

The Singapore online community is at it again. 

This time, the target is wealth manager Anton Casey, who reportedly posted to his Facebook page on Jan. 19 a photo of his one-year-old son on the train with a caption calling his fellow passengers “poor people”.

Casey later posted a photo of his Porsche in a residential estate in Bukit Merah, accompanied by an even snootier post.

As community Facebook pages and online forums began spreading the posts far and wide, The Real Singapore contacted the man who happens to be married to former Miss Singapore Universe Bernice Wong and was given this video response, drawing even more flak. 

Within 24 hours of Casey’s derogatory Facebook statuses and video, SMRT Ltd Feedback, the ‘troll website’ known for having uncovered the identities of supposedly racist online citizens ‘Clarena’ and ‘Heather Chua’, had put together a ‘dossier’ on Anton Casey.

According to the page, they now have in their possession not just info about his company of employment, but also his work email address, his boss’s email address and his passport number. 

After trying to distract netizens by changing his profile name (didn’t work, obviously), Casey deactivated both his Facebook and Twitter accounts. Bernice Wong, whose comment about lacking Singaporean men made her a controversial contestant at the pageant in 2003, has also deactivated her Facebook page.
