Twitter Post Accidentally Makes Awkward Innuendo To Celebrate Singapore's SEA Games Win

This article originally appeared on Vulcan Post.

Singapore has been clinching gold after gold at this year’s 2015 SEA Games, and the local sports desks have been lapping it up excitedly. But whoever’s in charge of ST Sports Desk may need to read up on their urban dictionary, because this one seemingly innocent tweet may have taken Singapore’s victory a little too far.

While the tweet was referring to the large haul of gold medals that Team Singapore has been bringing home — to the point where it might seem like it’s raining gold — the term “golden shower” actually hints at something much worse. According to Urban Dictionary, the definition of a “golden shower” is:

The act of urinating on another person, usually for sexual gratification, or as a way of humiliation.

This innuendo didn’t go unnoticed by Singaporeans following the sports news on ST Sports Desk’s Twitter account, with many followers making jokes of their own.

The tweet is still up, but while the account manager has replied to other tweets in the thread, the pee jokes have been left untouched so far. Perhaps ST Sports Desk should keep an eye on the whiz behind the tweet, to keep similar oopsies from leaking out.
