The internet accused UMNO President and Bagan Datuk Member of Parliament (MP) Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, and his entourage of family members and supporters of being rude to others who were present at the Kuala Lumpur High Court on Monday (24 January) by allegedly cutting in line at an elevator there.

A video shared by CNA journalist Melissa Goh on social media caused quite the stir when the 35-second clip captured Ahmad Zahid’s group arriving at the KL court complex before entering a lift together.

Netizens were apparently irritated and called the group out for being selfish and ill-mannered when they entered the lift ahead of two other people who were supposedly already waiting in line at the scene.

Commenters were quick to point out that one man (the uncle in a checkered shirt) appeared to have been stopped from entering the lift and pulled away by the shoulders to make way for the group as he tried to enter the same elevator.

The video attracted criticism and conversations of “the commoners VS. the elites” began taking over the timeline.

Meanwhile, others voiced their opinions that the behaviour portrayed by so-called VIPs shouldn’t be accepted by members of the public.

Others noticed that the group may have violated some pandemic SOPs by crowding into one elevator in such a manner.

Some also saw the irony of the situation.

On Monday, Ahmad Zahid, who’s also the former Deputy Prime Minister, was ordered by the High Court to enter his defence against 47 criminal charges involving corruption (8 charges), breaches of trust (12 charges) and money laundering (27 charges) for a trial that began in 2019.
