Her name on Wikipedia was changed continuously over the past few days, ranging from explicit slurs to references to her “love” for water jets.

This refers to when she came under fire for using a water jet to wash an already clean corridor at a flood relief center while surrounded by photographers.
Netizens criticised the act as she was not actually providing real aid to flood victims, and instead merely posed for photographs.
“This is cyberbullying”
However, when Rina Harun’s name on Wikipedia was changed to include insults, many more netizens came forward to call out such behaviour as cyberbullying.
This is literally a sexual harrasment, sex jokes. Idk yall. Yall can be better than this.— 💙 (@zahiahusna) December 27, 2021
Despite the people’s anger towards her performance as a minister, Malaysians are also putting their foot down on blatant cyberbullying of a public figure.
“This is not our style…. We are better than this. We are way above this [behaviour],” writes one netizen.
riri ni mmg useless..haram tak guna langsung. Awat depa dok asyik pilih dia aku pun tak tau bomoh siam mana dia pakai..tapi ini buka style kita. Tak payah kita merendahkan diri and go down this road menghina style cham ni. We are better then this. We are way above this.— MatazOnzU🏴 (@RazizonzU) December 28, 2021
As of the time of writing, Rina Harun’s Wikipedia page has reverted to normal.
