BLOODIED AND SCARY MANNEQUIN REMOVED AFTER ONLINE CRITICISMS

Dear A.S.S. Editor

A mannequin that had been left hanging on a tree at *Scape in Orchard Road as part of Halloween celebrations have been taken down after it drew criticism online that it was highly inappropriate.

The mannequin is a life-sized human figure dressed in bloodied white robe and hanging from a tree. It was put up on Sept 18, but was removed on Wednesday (Sept 27) morning.

Among criticisms it received was that the mannequin was disturbing and in a very bad taste, whie it might also be traumatising for children. It was also accuse of trivializing the issue of suicide among young people.
