Veronica Chin (or the person behind the Facebook account, at least) strikes again. A serial commenter on various local Facebook groups such as Complaint Singapore and Singapore Taxi Driver, Chin has been triggering the internet for months on end with crude shitposts — intentionally crafted to provoke a strong, often negative reaction.

The latest post involves Chin getting everyone into a frenzy by making an unnecessary complaint about a national serviceman in uniform who just finished a meal at a McDonald’s outlet in Choa Chua Kang’s Lot One shopping mall. Chin took issue that the soldier had been enjoying some free time instead of undergoing training in camp.

“Like this how to trust out army boys to defend our country?” Chin ludicrously proclaimed on the Complaint Singapore Facebook group.

“Not only he exposed himself to the public by giving opportunity to would-be terrorists or enemies to disturb our nation, it will also create an image that our defense organization is too slack!”

Unfortunately, folks took the bait.

Folks explained why there was nothing wrong with the Singapore Armed Forces personnel having a break at McDonald’s.

This wouldn’t be the first problematic post made by Chin. The Facebook account has been behind a number of inflammatory posts that seek to sow discord on the internet. Most times, the posts target national servicemen and private hire vehicle drivers.

Sharp-eyed folks who’ve wised up to Chin’s antics point out that the Facebook profile’s URL actually contains the name “Wayne Tan”.

Someone apparently spotted Veronica Chin/Wayne Tan at the same McDonald’s outlet. Turns out, the troll might be a “middle-aged fat guy”. Which is not surprising at all.
