Security guard Ridhuan Abdullah has been sacked from his job after posting a vulgar comment on Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s Facebook page.

The 30-year-old, who had identified himself as a security enforcement officer at Keith Morton on the post, was fired on Monday.

The security firm's owner, William Morton Jr, said on Thursday that Ridhuan had “breached our company's code of conduct and we cannot tolerate this."

He added that such conduct cannot be condoned, particularly from security officers who are expected to “uphold basic standards of decorum”.

Morton said the offensive comment, which has since been deleted, was brought to his attention by a friend and the decision to sack Ridhuan was his own.

On Sunday, PM Lee posted Mother's Day wishes along with an old photograph of himself, his brother and his late mother on his Facebook page. In the post, he thanked all mothers, saying: "One day is simply not enough to thank mothers for their unconditional love and untiring care."

Ridhuan is not the first – and likely not the last – to get in hot soup for his online remarks. Read on to find out which other online rants have come under fire.
