Netizens felt uneasy after watching a 15-second TikTok video showing a female school student doing a catwalk in front of a group of students before blowing a flying kiss towards the crowd. A male student in the crowd pretended to receive the kiss and faint.

The video was allegedly taken four years ago and recently resurfaced again. The flirtatious catwalk and flying kiss act allegedly occurred during a motivational talk in a school led by an influencer named Amir Lala.

Based on his TikTok videos, Amir is often invited to schools in Johor to give motivational talks.

However, netizens found that the activities he planned for the students were inappropriate because they usually involved students learning pickup lines. The students would then recite these lines to their teachers and peers.

A father voices his disappointment

The videos also prompted a parent to condemn Amir’s actions through a public letter dated 16 December 2023.

Azrul Adnan, the father of one of the students in the videos, voiced his disappointment with Amir and Akademi Ikon Muda Malaysia (Aikom) because they used his child and other children for content and marketing.

He also said the pickup lines taught to students should be stopped since it wasn’t beneficial. To build a student’s confidence, he suggested teaching the students public speaking and debating skills, including reciting poetry and other literature works.

Azrul hoped that moving forward, the schools would pick motivational speakers with a proven track record and a true success story to motivate students.

Due to the backlash, the Chairman of the Johor Education, Information, and Communication Committee, Norlizah Noh, has asked the Johor State Education Department (JPN) to monitor motivational talks held in schools.

Aikom clarified in a statement that Amir is not their consultant but only part of their media team. They have issued apology letters to the schools involved and the parents. Aikom has also lodged a police report and an investigation is underway.
