What are Malaysians talking about today? Apart from the usual, five hunky Thai men appear to be dominating conversations.
Unknown to many before this morning, Malaysian social media is suddenly abuzz with police reports and press statements and Facebook posts condemning the “Thai Hot Guy” event.
So who are they?
According to the event poster, they look like hunky men who wear ladies’ lingerie.
These guys are said to be famous in Thailand where they gyrate at a restaurant called Staneemeehoi in Lat Phrao, Bangkok.
A club in Kuala Lumpur decided to invite these men here for its opening and all hell broke loose the minute the promotional posters were spotted by people who were not too thrilled such an event will be taking place in the country in the month of Ramadan.
While most of the statements and social media posts by politicians focused on condeming this “immoral event”, former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s son found a rather “unique” point to raise apart from slamming the event’s Ramadan date which is March 30.
It deserves a mention that many countries around the world, including ours, employ street names to help people locate places, and it is normal for premises to be identified by their street name.
So where are you going, A asks B. B replies: Pavilion, Bukit Bintang.
Take note that the Pavilion shopping centre is located along Jalan Bukit Bintang.
Back to the story at hand. With Privacy Club located off Jalan Tun Razak, in their “Thai Hot Guys” promotional poster, the location is printed at the bottom. The club also identifies itself as “Privacy Tun Razak“, which most likely is due to its location as “Tun Razak” is not written on the door signage.
This however did not sit well with Najib’s son, Nazif Najib.
Taking to his Facebook account, he said the use of his Tokda’s name on the poster made him sad.
Short history lesson: The late Tun Abdul Razak was Malaysia’s second prime minister and is also Najib’s father, which means he is Nazif’s grandfather (Tokda).
“Additionally, using my Tokda’s name Allahyarham Tun Abdul Razak as a material or promotional article is an insult to my big family. This is very very inappropriate and I see it as an insult to Allahyarham (Tun Abdul Razak). Disappointed and sad, these are things filling my heart right now,” Nazif, whose father is now in prison for corruption and abuse of power, wrote on Facebook.
From its Instagram page, it appears Privacy opened last September and they have been printing “Privacy Tun Razak” on all of their event posters.
The use of “Tun Razak” in this case is not tied specifically to the hunky Thai event.
