Goh Beng Choo started this petition to Public

The term "Chinese helicopter" uses punning to tease Chinese-educated people in Singapore. It is highly disrespectful and if it stays in the dictionary, it will give the impression that it is an acceptable term. It is actually insensitive and highly derogatory and will hurt millions of elderly Chinese-educated citizens. It will pollute the language learning of young generations of Singaporeans.
