Hong Kong’s very own Kim Jong-un impersonator was ushered out of an event marking the passing of Singapore’s founding leader Lee Kuan Yew on Sunday. “Kim” took to the stage as hundreds of Singaporeans gathered at Central Plaza to watch a live-stream of Lee’s funeral.

In an effort to subvert the outpouring of positive coverage surrounding Lee’s passing, the Kim lookalike declared the former prime minister the “world’s greatest dictator” amid angry heckles.
Statement from “Kim Jong Un”
I, Kim Jong Un, as the leader of the most oppressive dictatorship in the world, would like to extend my sorrow at Lee Kuan Yew’s passing, as he is someone whom I admire as being the greatest and most successful dictator in the world.
As he was the sole architect of the nation of Singapore, all Singaporeans should thank him daily for all the good things in their lives such as: not having to put up with chewing gum infested streets, put up with gay anal sex and most importantly the rising of the sun each day in Singapore.
Which of course as every Singaporean will know, without the Lee family and the People’s Action Party, would simply be impossible.
Lee Kwan Yew has taught me that to crush one’s political enemies you don’t have to shoot them or feed them to the dogs like I do, it is more effective and respected if you can just control the courts and sue them until they are bankrupt and throw them in jail through defamation.
I as the leader of North Korea have nothing but respect for the Lee family and recognise that the Lee family as the rightful owners of Singapore and her subjects.
Long live Singapore and one party rule!
Meanwhile, in Singapore, a less light-hearted act of dissent was reported to police as a 17-year-old questioned Lee Kuan Yew’s legacy on YouTube. His eight-minute long video has since been made ‘private’, but is mirrored below.
