A teenage girl in Singapore is having the last laugh after going viral on social media.

The 17-year-old teenager, known as Zoe, was criticised by netizens on TikTok for considering Charles & Keith (C&K) a luxury brand.

The bag was priced at S$80 (RM262).

Zoe was upset with the criticism because the bag was a gift from her father.

The video uploaded on 8 January caught the attention of C&K headquarters.

Their spokesperson confirmed that Zoe and her father had been invited to lunch with the brand’s founder.
