It seems that netizens weren’t too kind towards Deputy Works Minister Datuk Eddin Syazlee Shith, who was recently filmed falling asleep onstage while chairing a school graduation ceremony in Negeri Sembilan.

At just over a minute long, the Kuala Pilah MP appeared unconscious for a few moments in the video before being wakened up by people at the event.

As the viral comment nightmare continued to rage online, Eddin Syazlee’s official Twitter account commented with a short statement saying that on the day the video was taken, the deputy minister had been unwell but still insisted on attending the school event.

The same was reportedly said by Eddin Syazlee’s special officer Farahiah Zubir, who also came forward to apologize on the latter’s behalf.

Others also came to Eddin Syazlee’s aid by asking the public to walk a day in a minister’s shoes.

Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) Central Information Secretary and Federal Territories Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa’s special officer, Subash Chandrabose Arumugam Pillai, Tweeted that it’s normal for ministers to wake up at six in the morning and only go home after two at night.

His comments however attracted even more criticism as some social media commenters countered with the fact that other Malaysians are also working for longer hours at lesser pay to put food on the table.
