The recent online vitriol some Singaporeans have spewed on a man from a local junior college who was seen on an Instagram post kissing his male partner was worrying, said Singapore’s Inter-University LGBT Network. In a press release on Sunday, the network denounced comments inciting violence that were made towards the couple and urged authorities to investigate netizens who had advocated acts of violence towards them. In particular, the network highlighted a comment made by user UptheToon on the HardwareZone forum thread Eat Drink Man Woman, asking for the couple to be placed in gas chambers.
