Hero represented Malaysia on Student and his obnoxious remarks mocking Singapore’s “man-made” attractions and citizens sparked backlash online.

The breaking point for most was when he went on to accuse Singapore’s iconic dishes as ‘stolen from Malaysia.

Many Singaporeans came out to decry his comments with some calling Hero an “uneducated person” and an “attention seeker looking for his 10 minutes of fame.”

In what also seems like a bid to gain brownie points with the Singaporean live stream audience, Hero lamented to Terence that it was “extremely tough” to find anything negative to say when he was doing research before appearing on the variety show.

“What can I say about your education system or the Singapore economy?” he explained.

Hero even proudly said he “grew up in Johor Bahru watching Mediacorp shows and listening to [Mandarin radio station] YES 933”.

In a separate interview with The New Paper, Hero also let on that he only realised that his scenes had been ‘specially edited’ after the episode was broadcast.

“It looked like I was very dissatisfied with Singapore, but it really was just a performance to suit the entertainment show,” said Hero.
