SINGAPORE: The police are currently investigating an incident at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands (MBS) involving a man defecating in an open public area, as captured in a widely circulated photo.
The incident has also caught the attention of MBS, as a spokesperson from the mall has confirmed that they are conducting their own inquiry into the matter.
The viral photo, depicting the man squatting with his pants down and defecating at one of the entrances of MBS, has been circulating online since Monday (Oct 30).
This photo was originally posted on the Facebook page “Kakis’ Club.”
The man in question can be seen not only pulled down his pants but also squatted in front of a glass window, right beside an entrance to the popular shopping mall.
It remains unknown why the man chose to defecate in the open area.
Netizens: very urgent?
This shocking image has circulated widely, prompting various reactions from netizens, with some resorting to making jokes about the situation.
Some have suggested that the man may have been in “urgent” need, unable to reach a nearby toilet, or perhaps unaware of one.
One netizen raised a question about why the man couldn’t hold it until he reached a toilet, to which another individual responded that the toilets could possibly be quite a distance away.
This person even shared their own experience, mentioning that they once had to run to the toilet because of a sudden urge to urinate, and described it as a “damn 5-minute run.”
Some comments expressed sympathy for the cleaner who would have to deal with the aftermath of the man’s actions and clean up the mess left behind.
One comment mocked the idea that the man might have been attempting to “spoil MBS’s Feng Shui” to improve his own luck, suggesting that he would win big at the casino as a result of his “genius action.”
Meanwhile, another netizen suggested a different perspective, speculating whether the man could have been suffering from mental health issues. He pointed out that he didn’t believe anyone would engage in such behavior purely for the sake of amusement.
