WHAT DO PEOPLE THINK?

The New Paper polled 64 people yesterday.

While 59 per cent said they were not personally offended by the images or messages, the majority (81 per cent) disapproved of it being done on public property.

A 52-year-old housewife, who wanted to be known as Madam Sarah, said: "Vandalism, big or small, is on public property, which is not yours to do anything illegal with."

Nanyang Polytechnic student Larissa Soniya, 18, said public property should be protected from discriminatory statements, and vandalism is not a good platform for "sensitive issues".
