This tweet, as they say, brought out the crazy. "Right-wing Americans swarming around a viral Changi Airport post with spicy takes that are a mix of half-truths and some outright falsehoods divorced from reality," a Singaporean said.

SINGAPORE — Many from around the world admire Jewel Changi Airport, especially due to the Rain Vortex, the world’s tallest indoor waterfall. But surely nobody expected that a tweet about it would inspire some right-wing trolls from the US to say what they said.

On Saturday (Jan 21), after a tweet from Hayden Clarkin @the_transit_guy, posted a video of the Rain Vortex, writing, “I’m just in awe of Singapore’s airport,” a retweet from writer Patrick Casey was, “People cite Singapore as a successful multicultural society when it’s 75% Han Chinese, 15% Malay, and 7.5% Indian—far different from America. Plus its ruling class appears to be interested in ruling well rather than attacking its majority. Food for thought!”
