ISS, Employer of the Alleged Racist MRT Bully, Bombarded with Hate Mail

If you haven’t heard by now, there was a conflict between a foreign national and YouTuber who identifies himself as Christopher Raymond Hall and a Taiwanese man on the MRT. The story broke out when Christopher posted this video on YouTube.

2015-11-12 Racist MRT Incident
According to Christopher, the bully was following him and his girlfriend on a MRT train ride from Da’an Station to Shilin Station. In a 14-minute YouTube video, he tells of how he and his girlfriend were targeted by the Taiwanese man, who verbally abused the pair over their relationship.




The identity of the Taiwanese man has not been identified. However, sharp netizens spotted the logo on the Taiwanese man’s uniform and have bombarded the company’s Facebook page. The Taiwanese man works for the ISS, a facility services companies with more than 510,000 employees and activities in more than 75 countries.

Almost all comments on the ISS’s company Facebook are from netizens who are angered by the harassment. Many urge the company to immediately fire the Taiwanese man.

Some even demand a public announcement or press release from the company while others suggests everyone to calm down and not handle this situation emotionally.

ISS has yet to make a comment on the incident.

    Not sure why this is ISS’ fault and they need to issue an apology for this arsehat.

    What kind of slanted propaganda e-zine are you morons? Why are you only posting the ridiculous public whining for protecting a manipulative foreigner and nothing about how incredibly idiotic the notion anyone’s employer has the right to command their employee for anything outside of the job description?

    What kind of self-loathing right-wing fuckturds are you?

    As the incident was recorded and the guy was wearing ISS work uniform identifying himself as an ISS employee it certainly falls to the company to discipline him for bringing the company into such disrepute. Secondly, as a foreign owned company operating in Taiwan, I would not want this guy working for me if he is harboring such racist, bigoted views… seems like a time bomb waiting to go off…

    I think it’s not ISS’s fault so whether they say something or not is entirely up to them. I hope they tell the bully how far off the page he was what was he thinking… but then I also hope they won’t fire him. He has enough to think about now and he’s just the tip of the iceberg. It is wonderful that so many Taiwanese came forward in support of Christopher Hall but many here still think like the bully. Let things cool down and allow for some time for the events to sink in.

    As he was wearing the company’s uniform and so representing the company, he needs to be punished by the company. Whether that be unpaid leave while he takes classes of some kind to help with his racism, or whatever they decide to do. I do not think all people should be getting involved in this matter. It is an internal affair with the company and their employee.

    The bigger scandal actual was (for me) how long the police took to react – dragging their feet until the footage of MRT security footage was routinely deleted – 7+ days.

    On one hand, employees should be free to get in trouble outside of their working hours and generally it’s not their employer’s business what they do. On the other hand, he was wearing a shirt that identified his employer, and the employer’s reputation has obviously suffered for it.
    The best outcome would be for someone to change Mr. Liao’s mind about foreigners. If he could become a spokesperson for open-mindedness and warm-hearted acceptance of people who aren’t Taiwanese, that would be the real victory.
    And, let’s also note that he expressed horrible misogyny. This is an opportunity for Taiwanese to consider their attitudes toward women as well as foreigners.

    Few month ago 3 ISS employees molested an underage boy in another country, ISS you gotta give more training specially emotional/psychological thingy. People who live in such a hard live have different mentality… they work around people with higher jobs who probably treated them bad, must have a lot of hatred inside them.

    well, police never handles anything in a timely manner… throw something to the police in the United States, unless someone died during the incident.. the efficiency is not quite up to standard..
    welcome to capitalism… even police have quotas to make… so they generally use their time on easier cases (high quota count)… therefore, they are not efficient on most of the cases they handle. This is the by product of Capitalism~ ALL HAIL CAPITALISM!!!

    To all you fascists that seeks retribution from employer to censor free speech. Here’s some critical thinking for all subservient slave minds.

    40 hour work week x 4 is 160 hours of work per month. Sake of argument say $3500 per month salary which becomes $21.875 per hour pay rate.

    So say 16 waking hours per day, 448 hours per month. So if expectation is conduct must reflect “policy of a private company, always” there’s 288 hours which employee is not compensated for. Or another simpler way of looking at it is $7.8 per hour to behave as mandated by employer.

    Quick glance at Taiwan Bureau of Labor Statistic, average Taiwan pay is equivalent to USD $1520 per month. For $3.35 per hour expectation is employees must obey “policy” set forthe by private company.
