Ivan Lim wasn’t the only PAP new face who has been fielding allegations online.
However, unlike Ivan Lim, who withdrew after saying he’ll stay the course, Shawn Huang has been rebutting the allegations online.
Well, there’s now been an update on his food-throwing incident.
Woman Who Accused PAP Shawn Huang of ‘Throwing Food’ Allegedly Said She Might Have ‘Overreacted’
According to a Straits Times report published today, the woman who had accused PAP candidate, Shawn Huang, of “throwing food back at officers” have taken back her allegations.
Identifying as Lin Leo on Facebook, she said that her “assessment may have been overly harsh and she might have overreacted”.
Previously, Huang said he was able to deduce who the person was based on her post, and had tried to contact her but she had removed her post before he could do so.
Why She Removed Her Previous Post
In a long Facebook post, Leo said that that the message she was trying to put across wasn’t very clear and some people might take it the wrong way.
After posting and thinking about it for some time, she realised that it may not show his full character as many who came across Huang had positive experiences with him.
She wants to make it clear that she isn’t denying the fact that many who had come across Huang have positive experiences with him and added that it could be her negative experience with him that caused her to think that he has a bad character.
She went on to clarify that she is not a person with a “hidden agenda”.
Leo urges netizens not to simply comment about political candidates if they have not met or interacted with them before.
To end off the post, she hopes that Huang will understand and “press on if committed to serve and lead”.
You can read her full post below:
On 28 June, Lin Leo took to Facebook to express her shock at Shawn Huang’s candidacy on 28 June.
She related a negative experience about Huang throwing rations back at her officers during an NDP rehearsal back in 2018 where he was a parade commander.
Huang responded to the allegation a few hours later in a Facebook post of his own.
According to Huang, the incident happened at an NDP Parade rehearsal in 2018. Huang was parade commander.
After the afternoon rehearsal, Huang discovered that no lunch had been catered for his group. So, he asked the warrant officer, reportedly the netizen, for a leftover packet of food since leftover rations would be disposed of in 30 minutes anyway.
But the warrant officer allegedly refused to issue Huang a set of rations. So, Huang went elsewhere to ask for a packet of food and managed to find one.
When he returned, he saw a packet of food on his table and passed it back “politely”.
In Huang’s eyes, this was simply a misunderstanding.
