31 March 2015 / 1 year 6 months ago

Blogger Grace Tan of workingwithgrace.wordpress.com has sent waves through the blogosphere when she announced that she has served court papers to Wendy Cheng, also known as Xiaxue.

In a blogpost entitled #SayNoToBullying, she wrote that Xiaxue made defamatory, libellous and abusive comments about her.

She wrote:

"Because I am still reeling from the shock of reading the malicious words used, I shall, at present, not reproduce them here.

"The stress, embarrassment, fear and anxiety from being cyber-bullied has had adverse effects on my health.

"The good that has come out of it is I am now more empathetic towards victims of cyber-bullying. I have long read about them online and in the papers, but now I know exactly how they feel." 

Grace Tan hopes her actions will make the Internet a friendlier place for Singaporeans.

Said the blogger on her Facebook page:

"I am suing Cheng Yan Yan Wendy, aka Xiaxue, after defamatory, libellous and abusive comments were made about me.

"My wish is for a better blogosphere, a calmer cyberspace, a safer Singapore. I am doing this for our children, our students, my fellow bloggers, and the public in general."

S-pop, xiaxue
