I have the American accent, far from the British but if someone started speaking like that all the time, I'd sock them.

i guess it depends on where you are..
like me, i grew up in the Philippines but i've been in the US for years so i kinda adapted their accent and stuff..

but if i'm in the Philippines and i heard someone faking an english accent i'll be like "what the hell?what's up with you? "

It's never happened to me before, but look where I live? I would like to witness something like that though. I wonder, why fake the accent?

They want to feel like a white.
Of course you won't see such thing,you live in the US and people around you and you yourself have an english accent[considering you are raise in the US since birth].
But go asia and you will probaly see it.

I'm glad that I'm Chinese but spoke English ever since I was little I had weird English at first too when I first spoke it in Preschool though. Practically my whole family that are aunts, uncles, grandma's, etc. has a funny accent when it comes to English. I don't think they do it intentionally though...Their just trying to speak English. I do get a bit "annoyed" at their failed attempts to speak English though, not annoyed enough to tell them they suck though. By "English" accent do you mean like Canadians, totally flat voice or like England people do? Like in Harry Potter?

I don't like it as well, but you can't help it sometimes.
As for me, I was born and raised in the US, so I can totally tell what's "fake" and what's not.

You're Singaporean, you speak with an accent anyway.
