What I did:
 I read up on the Anton Casey case do understand it and to find out what happened.

What I learned:
 I learned that he had to leave Singapore for Perth with his wife and son due to his actions. He had shared a picture of his son with the caption, “Daddy where is your car & who are all these poor people?” as well as a second image of his son in a silver Porsche with the line, “Normal service can resume, once I have washed the stench of public transport off me.” In a separate public post, he had also taken a picture of a taxi driver, calling him a “retard” for wearing gloves and covering himself with towels in 37-degrees-Celsius weather. His actions had led to many people who have seen them to feel that he was being disrespectful to the Singapore community. CrossInvest is a family business built up in Singapore therefore it was said that what he had said and posted go against their core corporate and family values that are based on trust, mutual understanding and are respectful of diversity.
