If the Chinese tourists had known their Grab driver were making fun of them, they wouldn’t have been so gracious in playing along with his supposedly cheery antics.
A video that has gone viral on social media recently shows a Grab driver mocking the way they speak.
Putting on a show of smiling and laughing while cursing and making fun of them in Malay, he even calls them “stupid” and says he wants to “knock them on their heads”.
He tells them to smile and wave at the camera and they do so obligingly as he records the charade.
Netizens have blasted the driver’s actions and criticised him for tarnishing the country’s image.
Grab immediately sprang into action and its communications manager Regina Robin said, “We have removed him permanently from our platform and we do not condone such behaviour.”
Guess the driver is not laughing anymore.
