Put It Under Entertainment

Young local singer and reality TV star Steph Micayle recently posted a video on Youtube titled "Why I am not proud to be Singaporean" which has generated more than 800,000 views and 15,000 comments, mostly from Singaporeans. Some have been praising her for speaking her mind, while others had called her naïve and silly.

The clip has been so viral it landed her in the newspaper under the ‘Singapore News’ section. I do not understand what the big deal is. I don’t understand because
a)      What she is saying is not new
b)      She’s a reality TV star

I’m not saying she’s wrong, a lot of young people like Steph have similar views, but come on, is it really that big of a deal? A young reality TV star post a clip on Youtube publicly stating views many people have in private should not be such a big deal.

People need to calm down. A Youtube rant by a reality TV star shouldn’t be in the ‘Singapore News’ section of the newspaper; it should be under ‘Entertainment’.
