Not the first, but hopefully the last time this will happen in KLCC.

A pair of alleged anti-maskers were spotted leisurely strolling through KLCC Park without masks on, according to Twitter user Dieba Ojay.
So Karen je xyah pakai mask ke? Wow! Im so angry bcoz i am local and follow the rules but this mofo can simply walk without mask? This is too much! Mmg area klcc ni tmpt sarang Karen suka2 x pakai mask ke? Mana undang2? Wajar kah aku marah? @Khairykj??? pic.twitter.com/isFy22lMWt— Amma Llama (@AdibahOj) November 17, 2021
In an angry Tweet, she blasted the pair of ‘Karens’ for not following the SOPs.
What happened to the law? Isn’t it right for me to be angry?@AdibahOj on Twitter
Dieba had snapped the picture during her lunch break around 12.30pm and noted to TRP that there were no enforcement officers to be seen at that time.
She revealed that she was particularly angry at the double-standards shown by KLCC enforcement officers.
Aku marah sbb haritu masa aku strolling dgn anak aku p tgk fountain kt klcc park. Weekdays xde org kosong so aku bukak mask nk selfie ambik gmba dgn anak aku.. Then mai polis tiup wisel dia cakap aku sini xleh bukak mask. Nk ambik gmba pon kene pakai mask! Habes Karen td tu xpe?— Amma Llama (@AdibahOj) November 17, 2021
Recounting her own recent experience, Dieba also told TRP of how KLCC authorities were quick to reprimand her for taking off her mask to take a selfie with her child at the popular visitor’s spot last month, even for a short while.
However, these anti-masker ‘minah sallehs‘ could walk around freely without being stopped.
So I feel mad as the rules did not apply to foreigners.Dieba Ojay to TRP
Just a few weeks ago, a Caucasian ‘Karen’ also went viral for trying to force her way into a luxury store in KLCC. She was later revealed to be a staunch anti-masker, and has also tried to force her way into Bangsar Shopping Center before being slapped with a RM3,000 fine.
Fines are only slap on the wrist for these expats, thats why they willing to flaunt and disrespect our law.Dieba Ojay to TRP
Locals are super mad
Naturally, local Malaysians were shocked at the double standards, especially since it seems like these ang moh anti-masker ‘Karens’ continuously breach SOP without remorse.
Many netizens, including Dieba Ojay herself, continuously tried to catch the attention of Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin, the Health Ministry (KKM) and the police (PDRM) by tagging them on the post, hoping that authorities would do something about the anti-maskers.
Ini kalau KL tengah PRN, semua wakil rakyat turun padang pantau Karen and Kevin berkeliaran😌. Betul tak? @Khairykj— Raqib Aiman (@raqibaiman99) November 17, 2021
im so angry like i wanna go to jalan2 area klcc park and maki semua karen yang tak nak pakai mask. dan i akan bawak pepper spray just in case— شافعي 🧣 (@pipijelah) November 17, 2021
I hope our Gov can be more firm/strict towards foreigners who did not follow our rules. It is unfair for us the local as we did follow what KKM tell us to do. We even wear mask whenever we go. We need to make sure these foreigners respect our rules and please take action seriously on this matter.Dieba Ojay to TRP
