SINGAPORE: A man who was thrown into the social media spotlight after being mocked online by a Miss Singapore Universe finalist for wearing a T-shirt with holes had thought of quitting his job because of the unwanted attention.

In a Facebook post, Senior Minister of State for Law and Education Indranee Rajah, who is also MP for Tanjong Pagar GRC, said Mr Koh Hee Huat is her resident.

Ms Indranee said she has been a long-time customer of the food stall where Mr Koh works.

She explained that the stall has metal fixtures that snag on the T-shirts, causing them to tear, and it is just part and parcel of Mr Koh’s work environment.

Ms Indranee said Mr Koh felt embarrassed and hurt after Miss Singapore Universe finalist Jesslyn Tan posted his photo online.

Ms Tan has since removed her post and apologised online for being insensitive.  - CNA/gn
