Controversies

Tiger Lim stirred up a controversial story about a controversial video that he has posted on his popular blog. [16] The video was about a student bullying other students in a toilet. His chat box was then flooded with comments from public, mostly with mixed feelings. Tiger has his reasons for posting the video but came at a huge risk. The boy, RJ, was expelled. However, the management said that it was not based on the video or evidence (posted by Tiger Lim) but based on his poor disciplinary record in CHMS. [17]

In February 2011, David Deterding, [18] an Associate Professor at University Brunei Darussalam questioned and raised some linguistic questions [19] after reading some entries posted on his blog. He claimed that Tiger's use of informal, non-standard English was deliberate and he wonders how natural it was.

Tiger Lim has stirred quite a number controversies in his own social media page, in November 2013 during his visit to Philippine, he took a picture of himself with number of Filipinos in the back and posted in Instagram that he'll be bringing Filipinos maid back. Hence stereotyping majority Filipinos as maid. As a result, a boycott page has been set up targeted Tiger Lim. [20] Tiger Lim also being continuously hit by public on some of his insensitive post.

Posts are typically displayed in reverse chronological order, so that the most recent post appears first, at the top of the web page. Until 2009, blogs were usually the work of a single individual, occasionally of a small group, and often covered a single subject or topic. In the 2010s, "multi-author blogs" (MABs) emerged, featuring the writing of multiple authors and sometimes professionally edited. MABs from newspapers, other media outlets, universities, think tanks, advocacy groups, and similar institutions account for an increasing quantity of blog traffic. The rise of Twitter and other "microblogging" systems helps integrate MABs and single-author blogs into the news media. Blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.
