Sharing hot takes on the internet is not always rainbows and butterflies, as one local artiste found out after her opinions on the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community were not well-received, to say the least. Local artiste Joanna Theng, 22, has received a wave of backlash after linking the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) pride movement and its six-colour rainbow flag to Satan in an Instagram video on July 22. The 14-minute video was the final instalment in a three-part series by City Revival (CR), which describes itself as a “inter-generational” and “inter-denominational” Christian community. As part of the series, Theng and another member of the community, Jaime Wong, delved into the Book of Revelations, the final book in the Bible, and discussed its relevance in today’s world. While the first two episodes largely flew under the radar, Wednesday’s episode attracted controversy for its portrayal of the LGBT community.
