Nair Siblings Given Conditional | Dennis Chew's "brownface" Ad | Bite-Size - At Up-Tube.com

Nair siblings given conditional Dennis Chew's "brownface" ad | Bite-Size 2 days ago   02:10

In Singapore, YouTuber Preeti Nair and her brother Subhas were given a 24-month conditional warning by the police for a rap video which was laced with profanity and targeted at Chinese Singaporeans. The online video criticised an E-Pay ad, which depicted Mediacorp personality Dennis Chew portraying members of different races in Singapore. Separately, the Infocomm Media Development Authority said that while the ad did not breach the Internet Code of Practice, it was done in poor taste and had offended minority communities.

Dennis Chew's "brownface" ad | Bite-Size Nair siblings given conditional 2 days ago   03:13

An advertisement with Chinese actor and DJ Dennis Chew portraying characters such as a woman in a tudung and a man with visibly darker skin has come under fire for being racially insensitive.

ST correspondent Yeo Sam Jo points out that this is not the first time Mediacorp has messed up depictions of race - think actor Shane Pow doing blackface in the Toggle series I Want To Be A Star (小咖大作战) and veteran actress Lin Meijiao donning a tudung for Channel 8 drama Say Cheese (西瓜甜不甜).
