    The Pole Licker on the MTR


    A Hong Kong-based hedge fund manager has claimed a viral video showing him licking his fingers and wiping them onto a train’s handrail was an attempt at parody meant to educate his friends about the ease of spreading fake news amid the coronavirus pandemic.


    Instead, the experiment misfired badly, attracting the full wrath of social media on Wednesday, as online users condemned him for irresponsible behaviour. The video was shared tens of thousands of times on Facebook and forwarded via private WhatsApp groups.

    Very poor judgement.

    Isn't this some sort of criminal offence ? If so he should be charged forthwith

    “I’m terrified. It’s been spread all over,” the 43-year-old Hong Kong resident said of the video. “I manage other people’s money. How embarrassing is this?”
    Should have thought about it before pressing the "Send" button

    We do all have the right to do silly things (regardless of your age) -- to have fun -- but a hedge fund manager behaving like a 12 years old schoolboy who's screwed up his homework, at times like this should be a criminal offence.

    He's successfully given his company a bad image. Well done, Sir.

    I wouldn't be surprised if that's his career gone down the drain.

    At least he has enough toilet paper to wipe up the mess...
