Police Investigating 23-YO Man Who Threatened LGBTQ Community on Instagram


There’s a saying that goes, “If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”

Apparently, not only the self-proclaimed “Singapore’s most annoying Tik Toker”, 23-year-old Ambuj Pandey, not get the memo, he only gone and done the exact opposite of it.

23-YO Man Who Threatened LGBTQ Community on Instagram

In the now-viral IGTV video he was in, Ambuj can be seen threatening violence against the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community in general.

But he’s actually targeting one person specifically.

Ambuj is seen saying that he would “send my guys to riot at Pink Dot and make sure- I’ll make it into a gang clash next year.”

In fact, Ambuj wanted to be the reason the LGBTQ community “no longer exist in Singapore”. He even “challenge the whole LGBT to a fight.”

Ambuj can also be seen showing off his knife, trying to show that he’ll make good on his threats.

The other person in the Instagram live seems to be taking the hate in stride while trying to make light of the situation as seen in their response.

Ambuj wasn’t alone in ranting against LGBTQ people either.

The number of racist comments posted by multiple other netizens as shown in the later part of the video was pretty bad too.

That being said, the offending Tik Tok video seems to have since been removed, though whether by the user or by the platform, that’s anyone’s guess.

Pink Dot Responded to Video; The Police is Investigating the Threats

Pink Dot, responded to inquiries from TODAY, saying that they are gravely concerned by the threats.

“The LGBTQ community here continue to face discrimination in their daily lives, and we take great pains to ensure that the event (the Pink Dot rally in Hong Lim Park) is a safe environment for all participants,” the group said.

Note that the Pink Dot rally usually takes place in the middle of the year (between May and July), but due to COVID-19, the rally will also be held online this year.

The group added that it trusts the authorities to respond to the matter with “utmost seriousness” and to assure the LGBTQ community that those who hurl hate speech at the community will be taken to task for their actions.

The police confirmed that a report regarding the issue has been lodged and that they already have a person of interest in custody to aid in their investigations.
