The news was announced on Wednesday by Singapore’s Immigration and Checkpoints Authority, according to Channel News Asia.

This was an upgraded sentence from Han’s previous 40-day jail term and $600 fine as she pleaded guilty for "using abusive language" on Oct. 25, reported The Straits Times.

Han, 29, stood on trial for her allegedly repeated verbal abusive behavior, including an occasion when she argued aggressively with a healthcare employee at the Singapore General Hospital and investigation officers after she was advised to wear a mask.

She even uploaded a video of her argument with them to Douyin, the Chinese version of TikTok, causing public outrage.

She admitted in court that she was drunk at the time of her offense and apologized for "causing inconvenience."

However, subsequent investigations revealed that Han was also working as a hostess instead of a clerk as she stated in her Singaporean work pass’ application.

Consequently, her work permit, which had been issued in Aug., was revoked, while she was deported to her home country. She will be banned from entering Singapore again.
