Additional Publication Information
In June 2011, Wang Pengfei, a student from the People's Republic of China (PRC) at the EASB East Asia Institute of Management in Singapore, posted a video of himself on YouTube wearing a pair of thick glasses and putting on black lipstick. In the two and a half minute clip, he mocked the different racial groups in Singapore, resulting in an uproar from netizens in Singapore. He was eventually hauled up for questioning before the school authorities, expelled from the EASB and then sent back home to the PRC as his student visa had been cancelled.
