Chieng’s statement, which described Singaporeans as being overly confident and opinionated despite having little global exposure, has been met with both criticism and support. Some Reddit users expressed disappointment in the comedian’s remarks, while others acknowledged the validity of his opinion.

Some critics questioned Chieng’s motives for his harsh comments, pointing out that he has a history in Singapore. They expressed surprise that someone who had studied and had family connections in the country would hold such a strong vitriol towards it.

On the other hand, supporters of Chieng argue that his background in Singapore has given him the right to his own perspective of the country. His experience as a student and having family there, according to some netizens, has given him a unique viewpoint on the culture and society.
