American man tells Straits Times off on Twitter for not using American English in Singapore

TL;DR – Is it drink driving or drunk driving?

It all started with this post on Twitter by our local newspaper The Straits Times,

Which Twitter user (and American) Don Lovell replied to and tried to correct the publication that it should be “drunk driving”.

Because American.

It appears that Lovell has deleted his tweets and Twitter account.

Presumably because of the backlash that soon arrived with this reply by The Straits Times which has since been retweeted 869 times.

This response says it best.
