The managing director of Mydin Hypermarket pardoned the people who had to loot his store in Taman Sri Muda, Shah Alam in order to survive in the flood on 23 December.
A few days after his official statement, a viral video showed a man and a woman exiting the same Mydin store with a cardboard box that showed a picture of an oven on the outside.
They were quickly made fun of by netizens online simply because the man carrying the box was wearing a Batman shirt too.
A netizen said that maybe Batman needed the oven to make brownies and make ends meet.
member nk jual brownies tu,untuk kelansungan hidup la tu📏— Ibnuluqmn (@kafrawi02) December 22, 2021
Nevertheless, the woman in the video has come forth to explain herself in a video posted to Twitter.
The woman denied that she took an oven from Mydin. She said she used the huge box to carry food such as biscuits and supplies to feed her hungry children at home.
She added that her children had not eaten for three days so there was no point bringing an oven home instead of food.
The woman also apologized for the misunderstanding she caused that day. She has made a police report to clarify matters too.
At the end of everything, there is always two sides of a story. https://t.co/y4hKc9AddI— brgsjks (@brgsjks) December 25, 2021
Some netizens reminded others to give people the benefit of doubt and let the issue rest.
Bersangka baik lah semua. Mereka ni mangsa & dlm kesusahan. Tanya dulu sebelum buat posting tu. Jgn suka mengaib orang sekadar nak tambah “Like”! Dah ada byk masa tangkap gambar & post, lebih baik pergi tolong mana yg patut. Klu rasa nmpk tak betul, terus tegur dan tanya.— CieAif (@SFDadham) December 26, 2021
tak apa lah.. dia dah beri statement mcm tu.. betul atau tidak, wallahualam.. jangan dipanjangkan isu lg.. percaya setiap perbuatan di dunia ini akan dipertanggungjawab di akhirat kelak.— Nur Arisha ⚘ (@_nurarisha_) December 26, 2021
The fact that the woman had to make a video to explain herself showed us that we shouldn’t be too quick to judge another person’s actions especially in desperate times.
