Why Amy Cheong saga is more similar to Sun Xu Saga?

I was quite surprised to read that Amy Cheong is not a Singaporean at all. She was born in Malaysia, raised in Australian (she is an Australian citizen) and works in Singapore as a high-flying Assistant Director in NTUC's membership division.
Hence this whole saga is really not about a Singaporean making offensive comments about the minority races here. I would compare this Amy Cheong saga as more similar to Sun Xu (a China national) saga. Sun Xu, a foreigner made offensive remarks about Singaporeans in general while Amy made offensive remarks about a particular race.
