He was once embroiled in a controversy surrounding a rude tweet he posted.

Today, he is back again, this time earning himself a reply on Twitter from the big boss of Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM) Suhaimi Sulaiman.

All because of a Malay movie on Netflix called Mat Tudung Begins.

Ahmad Zaki Yamani posted a screenshot of the movie title and said: “Apa cerita drag kat tv ni? Buat rosak masyarakat la.”

He tagged RTM director-general Suhaimi, Communications Minister Fahmi Fadzil and Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (religious affairs) Datuk Dr Mohd Na’im Mokhtar.

What caught people’s attention was the fact that the screenshot was clearly from streaming service Netflix but Ahmad Zaki tagged the boss of RTM to air his grievance.

Suhaimi replied to him, pointing out that the movie was not showing on RTM.

He replied to Suhaimi asking who was in charge of monitoring “private television stations”.

Suhaimi briefly said: “Do your homework before your postings lose credibility.”

Who is Ahmad Zaki Yamani?

Last year, Ahmad Zaki had commented on a Malaysiakini report of PAS President Tan Sri Abdul Hadi Awang’s deteriorating health where he “prayed for Allah to take the life of Abdul Hadi” to “stop the damage he was doing on earth”.

As if that wasn’t rude enough, Ahmad Zaki added a “P/S: Take Mahathir too.”

News reports at the time identified him as a PKR man.

Following backlash, which included a reaction from Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim himself, Ahmad Zaki apologised.

“I apologise to the wives and family of Tan Sri Abdul Hadi Awang if my comment hurt their feelings,” he said.
