London, April 28 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A singer has been arrested for racial abuse after singing the song “Kung Fu Fighting.” 34-year-old Simon Ledger was performing with his band at a bar when a Chinese man made a gesture to him.

Ledger was later arrested by the police for singing the song. He told newspapers in Britain that the performance at the Driftwood Beach Bar was not the first for his band. According to him, the band has performed several times without any complaint for anybody.

In the recent incident, Ledger explained that during the performance, a man of a Chinese descent who was walking at the bar with his mother took a picture of the group with his mobile phone.

The police have since released Ledger on bail saying he will be called in again for questioning.

Ledger is shocked at the extent of trouble he currently finds himself. He told The Sun that, “I thought it was a joke but they were serious. They seemed pretty amazed but said the law is the law and it was their duty. It’s political correctness gone potty.”

The police say investigation into the matter is ongoing.
