Possibilities And Pitfalls Of Social Media
The controversial post features a photo of a Malaysian model, YouTuber, and social media influencer, Siew Pui Yi.
A portrait of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob was photoshopped onto the picture.
At the bottom of the photoshopped picture is the phrase “Keluarga Malaysia is Forever”, in reference to the concept coined by Ismail Sabri in 2021.
The photo also contains remarks which are unjust and disrespectful to Ismail Sabri.
Netizens were not amused and slammed Nam Ron for the distasteful posting.
It is not immediately clear why the artist chose to photoshop the two individuals together.
Siew, more popularly known as Ms Puiyi, is widely known for sharing dazzling photos and videos of herself on social media.
She is the founder of cosmetic brand MsPuiYiCosmetics.
Ms Puiyi made waves when she was announced as Penthouse’s January Pet of the Month.
