A Kim Jong-un look alike interrupted the broadcast of Lee Kuan Yew's funeral and called Singapore's founding prime minister "the world's greatest dictator."
Hundreds of emotional Singaporeans had gathered on the 46th floor of the Central Plaza skyscraper in Hong Kong to watch the public screening of LKY’s funeral proceedings. However, the somber atmosphere soon turned into a scene of chaos after a man impersonating the North Korean dictator jumped on the stage and started yelling “long live one-party rule in Singapore.”

The protester, named Howard, was booed by the audience and later thrown out by the guards, who warned him not to return.
"Singaporeans have everything one would want in a first world city, materialistically, but not in terms of civil liberties," he told the South China Morning Post.

Known only by his first name, Howard is actually a well-known Internet celebrity who first became famous in 2013 after he claimed himself to be the world’s first “professional” Kim Jong-un impersonator.
Apart from being a musician and performance artist, Howard is also an activist. He was also spotted flashing a victory sign to student activists during pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong last year.
