Jocelyn Chia says looking back, she realises how the clip that was viewed outside the context of a performance in a comedy club, is risky.
While it is uncertain the exact nature of the crime committed by comedian Jocelyn Chia, the police will seek Interpol’s help to determine her identity and whereabouts.
Bernama reported Tan Sri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani as saying they would be filing an application with Interpol over the matter.
This is after a clip of Chia’s stand-up comedy performance in New York went viral in which she joked about the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370.
Meanwhile, Chia who has only reacted to the whole controversy with a few Instagram Stories’ posts last week spoke to CNN where she stood by her joke, but only in its entirety.
Checks this afternoon found that her Instagram account @chiacomedy is now missing again. It went missing last week but she said it was suspended for “impersonating a celebrity” and she has since gotten it back.
She said looking back, she realised how the clip that was viewed outside the context of a performance in a comedy club, was risky.
Chia herself had uploaded the clip on her Instagram and TikTok afterwhich it was shared far and wide on the Internet, leading to her being criticised.
She told CNN that she bears no grudge against Malaysia, saying “roasting” live audience was a common thing for comedians.
She claimed that Malaysians who had seen her performance often came up to her after to say they loved her gig. She took that to mean that they were not offended.
