Are you a fan of the English band, Maroon 5?
Or maybe, you’re a soccer fan (who’s a glory hound) and has supported Man United for decades?
Whichever you are, here’s one thing you need to know.
Singaporeans are now signing petitions to ban both Maroon 5 and Man United from coming to Singapore.
On 9 Mar 2019, a user by the name of Tay Koh Song (teh kosong, please) started a petition to ban Maroon 5 from coming back to Singapore to perform.
And the reason?
The youths of Singapore might get undesired ideas after hearing them perform.
Especially one of their songs, Sugar.
The petition starter is afraid that youths will consume more sugar after listening to lyrics like “sugar, yes please”.
So far, 622 Singaporeans have signed the petition.
On the same day, user Anonymous Anon started up a petition to ban Manchester United from coming to Singapore.

They were supposed to come to Singapore in July this year for the International Champions Cup (ICC).
Apparently, the club’s logo of a red devil with an open mouth isn’t something acceptable in Singapore.
The petition read
Obviously, with an intent to spread their influence in Asia with Singapore as a platform, this group called The Red Devils from Manchester is not welcomed. We shudder to imagine the kind of negativity they bring with them.
Surprisingly, there were 288 signatures in 12 hours.
Probably a Troll?
If you’ve read through the article, you’ll be wondering: what the hell?!
And we agree.
But if you were to step back and take a look at other incidents, these two petitions could be a troll.
After all, the petition against Maroon 5 for sugar-related crimes was started by a person name Tay Koh Song, or in English, tea without sugar.
- Note: but if that is really your name, I’m sorry for making fun of it. And I bet you must’ve had a great childhood.
- Note 2: You should apply for the Health Promotion Board & become their mascot.
Comes Just After Swedish Black Metal Band Successfully Stopped From Playing
And three days before the petitions were placed online on 6 Mar 2019, a petition was placed online asking to ban Swedish black metal band, Watain, from Singapore.
They arrived in Singapore on 7 Mar, all ready to perform, only to be told that their show was cancelled.
Yes. On the day itself.
Home Affairs and Law Minister K. Shanmugam said that the last-minute decision was not influenced by the petition on change.org.
Instead, they conducted a further security analysis and deduced that it’ll be against public order interest if they allow the concert to carry on.

The Coca-Cola Plus Coffee has arrived in Singapore, and let’s just say that the taste is very subjective: one of us thinks it’s like coffee candy, one of us thinks it’s like carbonated dark chocolate milk and one of us think it’s like Vanilla Coke. However, none of us thinks that it’s worth a second try, simply because we’ll all rather have Coke and coffee separately.
