A video showing a Singaporean man demanding a server from China speak only English to him has sparked an outcry online.
In the video, the man was upset that the worker was speaking to him in Mandarin and started to lambast the woman in front of other customers at a food court in Singapore.
’You have to speak English, okay? You don’t ask me to speak Mandarin,’ he scolded her in the video.
Mandarin and English are two of the four official languages of Singapore - the other two being Malay and Tamil.
The clip has since gathered more than 122,000 views and was picked up by Chinese media.
He was heard criticising the woman’s language abilities, saying ’this is my country’ and told her to ’learn English’ - while speaking in both Mandarin and English.
He also told her to ’go back to your country’ and blamed the Singaporean government for bringing in foreign workers and giving ’Singaporeans trouble’.
Singapore is an island country with an area of about 280 square miles and has a population of 5.8 million people.
Ethnic Chinese account for 76 per cent of the country’s population, according to a government survey in 2014.
