A man who threatened to open fire on the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community and supporters is currently investigated by the police.
On his 4th June comment to an article posted on the page “We are against Pinkdot in Singapore”, Bryan Lim said, ““I am a Singaporean citizen. I am a NSman. I am a father. And I swore to protect my nation. Give me the permission to open fire. I would like to see these £@€$^*s die for their causes.””
Given that Pulse Club in Orlando, Florida just saw the deadliest mass shooting in US history over the weekend, it is not surprising that at least 3 police reports have been made against Bryan’s comments.
Incensed netizens successfully CSI-ed Bryan. Through his LinkedIn profile, it was discovered that he is an “instructional designer” and a “performance consultant” in Canon’s organisation and training development department.
In response to the police investigations, Canon said that, “We appreciate your efforts in bringing the matter of Bryan Lim’s comments to our attention. At Canon Singapore, we live by our philosophy of Kyosei – which we define as “all people, regardless of race, religion, or culture, harmoniously living and working together for the common good.” As such, we do not condone violence in any form. Thus, we take this issue seriously and are looking into this matter.”
They have not made a definitive statement on Bryan’s employment.
