TAIPEI (The China Post) — Malaysian influencer Nigel Ng, known for his persona “Uncle Roger,” was reportedly assaulted by a man on his way home from lunch on Oct. 30 in London.
With a bruised and bloodied lip, the 29-year-old influencer shared the incident in an Instagram story. “This random guy just came up and punched me in my face,” he said.
“I’m guessing it’s probably COVID-racism related, which is really really shitty. Good thing he wasn’t a great fighter.”
The comedian said he asked the attacker what his intentions were, and the attacker responded, “You know what you did.”
Uncle Roger thinks the attacker didn’t know who he was and just wanted to punch an Asian person in the face.
He explained to his fans that he reported the case to the police and joked that at least the police knew who Uncle Roger was.
When police officers arrived at his house, however, he remarked that they didn’t take off their shoes, which made the whole process even worse.
“I was like: ‘come on, I’m already a victim!’“ He said.
Recalling the incident, he said he saw his life flash before his eyes and he was worried about the damage to his newly whitened teeth.
