Someone claimed that the bus trip was delayed because the driver behaved indecently in the bus.
Someone recently accused a bus driver of indecent behaviour and delaying the trip from Larkin to Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS).
In the video, the driver could be seen crouched over the driver’s seat while a second driver drove.
Without much context, the person who posted the video claimed something was going on between both drivers.
Fortunately, a passenger who was travelling on the same bus with her husband debunked the rumour.
Twitter user Anis (@aniajey) said she sat directly behind the driver’s seat with her husband and saw everything that happened.
She confirmed that the trip was delayed due to terrible traffic conditions and the bus was travelling between TBS to Larkin and back again to TBS non-stop.
She said the driver was fixing something near the radio box behind the driver’s seat.
Anis also said there were two drivers aboard the bus: a man and a woman. The male driver was guiding a female bus driver and helping her familiarise herself with the roads leading to Johor.
At the time of writing, netizens said the social media accounts of the person who started the rumour have been deleted or made private.
Betul. Driver ada 2 orang. Sorang lelaki. Sorang perempuan.— J E Y (@anisjey) November 15, 2023
Sebab waktu tu bas macam berat sikit nak jalan. Abg tu kata “awak boleh guna gear 5 juga baru rasa smooth sikit” lepastu abg tu tukarkan. Abg tu dia guide akak tu sb dia tak familiar dgn jln JB. Dan gear tu jenis keras. Mmg boleh dengar kuat each time dyeorg nak tukar gear.— J E Y (@anisjey) November 15, 2023
Netizens thanked Anis for speaking up
Netizens thanked Anis for clarifying the story and for stopping the slander against the bus driver.
Some of them admitted that they believed the video right away while others said they were glad they held their opinions to themselves first.
Hopefully, this turn of events reminds us all not to jump to conclusions.

Sebab tu mula mula tengok video tu aku tak comment apa apa. Mesti ada backstory dia. Tengok bahagian replies, laju je orang nak comment/condemn. Harap yang tukang viral and tukang sebar kena balasan setimpal. Bagi yang laju nak comment tu, harap kena batang hidung sendiri one day— imr. (@ranfulbo) November 14, 2023
Keep reminding myself untuk jangan cepat jump into conclusions. Dengan tuhan boleh lagi mintak ampun. Sesama manusia ni. Konsep sama macam berhutang. Awak kene cari dia walaupun di hari perhitungan— Saem.eth (@SafwanSuhaime) November 14, 2023
