Pinoy claims his Facebook account was 'hacked'

MANILA, Philippines - A Filipino nurse is reportedly under police investigation in Singapore for posting "inflammatory" statements on Facebook against Singaporeans.

Asia One Singapore reported the nurse, who works for Tan Tock Seng Hospital, has been placed on administrative duties pending a police investigation.

In a Facebook post that went viral, the Filipino nurse allegedly called Singaporeans "loosers" (sic) in their own country.

"Now the Singaporeans are loosers in their own country, we take their jobs, their women, their future, and soon evict all SG loosers out of their own country hahaha. The best part, I will be praying that disastors strike Singapore and more Singaporeans die than I will celebrate," a screengrab of the controversial Facebook post read.

The Filipino, who was not identified, claimed that his Facebook account was hacked.

However, Asia One reported that the Filipino had previously made derogatory comments about Singapore on Facebook.

On its Facebook page, the hospital said it was cooperating with the police on the matter.

"The Hospital and the nurse are cooperating fully with the police on this matter. The nurse is currently put on administrative duties, pending police investigations. We thank everyone for their concern and ask for patience for the investigation to take its due course," Tan Tock Seng Hospital said.


The Philippine embassy in Singapore reminded Filipinos to be responsible when posting on social media.

"Be responsible when posting anything online that might be deemed as offensive or hurtful to others. Use your good judgement at all times," the embassy said on Facebook.
