Foul mouth foreign talent caught on video
9th November 2012
* Warning: expletives & vulgar words used
The bank has dismissed a senior Singapore-based banker after a video surfaced on the Internet showing him in an expletive-laced tirade at a construction site adjacent to his home. A former colleague confirmed the banker was shown the door after Barclays executives viewed the clip.
In the clip, Desbarres is shown clad in polo shirt and sandals. He threatens workers at the site, lambasting them as “animals, Chinese [expletive] animals.”
“I’m going to go after you. I’m going to burn your [expletive] house down with your [expletive] people in it,” Desbarres is shown shouting. “I will find your [expletive] family. I can find it very easily, I am a man with resources.” He then is shown hurling a sheet of metal into a pit. Construction workers standing out of range on the opposite side of the pit filmed the outburst. ~ WSJ
