Comedian who ridiculed MH370 no longer Singaporean: high commissioner

KUALA LUMPUR – Stand-up comedian Jocelyn Chia has been confirmed to be no longer Singaporean following her viral video of a contentious comedy skit that mocked the MH370 tragedy, irking Malaysian netizens.

Singaporean High Commissioner to Malaysia Vanu Gopala Menon expressed his dismay at Chia’s performance, remarking it as unhelpful to the bilateral relationship between the nation and Malaysia.

“I am appalled by the gratuitously offensive comments made by stand-up performer Jocelyn Chia,” he said in a statement.

“The Singapore government does not condone words or actions that cause harm or hurt to others, and Chia, who is no longer Singaporean, does not in any way reflect our views,” he added, apologising to Malaysians.

Vanu said both nations enjoy a multi-faceted relationship with unique historical and interpersonal ties.

As such, Chia’s “hurtful remarks” have undermined the close trust and friendship that both nations enjoy, he added.

Earlier, a video went viral on social media showing a female comedian from Singapore mocking Malaysia in a recent comedy show titled Singapore vs Malaysia held in New York, United States.

The comedian issued statements that included offensive jokes and also touched on the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
