Teo’s post earned the wrath of netizens, who criticised him for being insensitive at a time when the nation is in mourning.
Some also said he had much work to do, to live up to the high standards set by Mr Lee.
To his credit, Teo, who is Minister of State for Trade and Industry, did respond to his critics.
Others though defended Teo, saying that everyone has their own way of honouring Mr Lee.
Teo’s original Facebook post read:
“Did a workout.

5 sets of 9 chin ups, 1 min of skipping(double unders preferred)20 air squats and 15 crunches

Thank you, Mr Lee, for inspiring us!
