Just the other day, student activist Ain Husniza posted a short video documenting her third day at her new school.

The 15-second video showed a visibly happy Ain flashing peace signs at various locations in Cempaka Cheras with upbeat music reflecting the overall positive mood.

Her supportive father Saiful Nizam also posted on his social media to say Ain is happy at her new school, along with the video.

However, it seems not everyone is happy with this move.

‘Negative’ comments sparked by media

Twitter user @omarfaayiz recently posted a screenshot made by a local infotainment website of a Facebook post they made on 10 November.

The caption appears to have taken a subtle dig at Ain for moving from an SMK school to a private one that costs “tens of thousands” in fees while the headline of the article the post links to reads: “Accusing the teacher of joking about rape, ‘happy’ teenager moves to a private school.”

Omar then commented:

How to make Malaysia progress when we have headlines that attract negative comments instead of positive ones.

His tweet from yesterday (11 November) has since received close to 6,000 retweets with over 7,000 likes.

Netizens react                              

Some comments to Omar’s tweets were in agreement with one netizen saying the comments on Facebook stressed her out.

Others said it was expected from a tabloid.

This netizen however thought it was all part of a ploy for easy marketing.
