In late 2016, anonymous attacks on the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2017 program surfaced online. The IMDA subsequently refused to issue ratings to M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2017’s performance-lecture Naked Ladies by Thea Fitz-James and Ming Poon’s Undressing Room, unless elements of the works be modified. The Fringe organisers pulled these shows out of the programme, to preserve the integrity of the works. More recently, ahead of 2018’s M1 Singapore Fringe Festival, the organisers drew flak for removing a film screening presented by The Glory Hoes, who claimed in a statement that it was an act of censorship. The Fringe responded with a statement explaining their reasons for withdrawing the event.
