Singapore: Cheerleader Sex Tape

All over the Singapore blogosphere are commentaries on an unfortunate high school cheerleader, nicknamed “Tammy NYP,” whose cellphone was allegedly stolen by a jealous classmate and whose sex video recorded on that phone is now spreading across the Internet. A post by Book of Aletheia on the topic now has over 150 comments. Tinker, Tailor has a few words on the scorn heaped on the poor girl but not on her male partner. Xialanxue has been following the story, communicating with the victim, trying to persuade a blogger to remove pictures posted from the video, and reflecting on the ethics of the traditional media's reporting on a deeply embarrassing story.

    It is quite possible that the renegade blogger Xialanxue may be the driving force behind the “Tammy NYP” saga! I would suggest looking at the Capital Region People blog, as they seem to have the most balanced coverage of the entire incident.
