Driver runs afoul of the internet after getting caught almost running over family of chickens at Jalan Pemimpin
A Hyundai driver has run afoul of the internet after he was filmed driving his car into a flock of chickens at Jalan Pemimpin.
The answer to the perpetual question of why did the chickens cross the road remains untold, but the more pressing query should be this: was the man even aware of his transgression in the first place?
While things aren’t so clear-cut from the footage, that hasn’t stopped netizens from picking up their digital pitchforks and calling for the driver to be identified.
The post that got them all riled up was shared by Wun Chiang on the Complaint Singapore Facebook group yesterday (March 12), which has since garnered hundreds of reposts and hundreds more furious comments.
The 8-second footage depicts the driver — who just exited the underground carpark of the Mapex industrial building — barrelling his car into the midst of a family of chickens, consisting of a rooster, a hen, and their nine chicks. An older gentleman in a green shirt who witnessed the whole thing shouted at the driver, who seemed ignorant of what happened.
Fortunately, there was no ayam penyet to be served. The entire family managed to escape getting crushed underneath the wheels of the Hyundai sedan, with the flock slowly regrouping, albeit a little dazed.
Folks have been condemning the driver in the comments section of the post, with some extra aggressive ones going as far as tracking the car’s plate number. Someone even found out that the car owner's road tax has expired.
Wun Chiang was surprised at the reaction he got from his post and tried to calm people down.
“This post went more viral than I expected,” he wrote. “Please have mercy on the driver. Maybe [he was] in a hurry.”
