After the incident, he stated:
‘was just trying to punch an Asian face’.
Furthermore, he illustrated it could be because of the ongoing pandemic of COVID-19, as its root is from the Chinese wet market. The YouTuber posted a chain of the Instagram story showing his bruised chin and scarred lips.
Ng further explained:
‘‘I was just walking home from lunch today and this random guy just came out and punched me in the face. I’m guessing probably Covid racism-related? Which is really, really shitty. Good thing he wasn’t a great fighter because it could’ve been a lot worse, I could be in the hospital.’
He explained the incident saying the man was on the bike when he shouted “You know what you did?”. The comedian then explained this can be an alleged racist attack as he doesn’t know this guy.
Moreover, he mentioned that guy also probably did not know him either. He also stated he could not feel safe in his own home environment. He has already reported the incident to the police and they took his details.
