PETALING JAYA: A joke aimed at Rosmah Mansor by PKR MP Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad has backfired, with Twitter followers calling him “immature” and “low class”.
Using the famous vanity lines by the evil stepmother of Snow White, the Setiawangsa MP said he imagined the wife of the former prime minister wearing a tiara and asking the magic mirror: “Magic mirror, who’s the prettiest FLOM in the world?”
FLOM is the acronym for “First Lady of Malaysia”.
The tweet, which was posted while Rosmah was being questioned by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), was criticised by social media users, who said it was in bad taste.
“YB, focus on your work, in the past every week we could see Datuk Fauzi (former Setiawangsa MP) on the ground with the people. Now it’s hard to see our representative,” said Twitter user Omar Othman.
Azmi Quttu said Nik Nazmi’s joke was misplaced, while Bruno Boon urged him to do his MP work.
One user said, “Can you all move away from this kind of rhetoric already? There is so much work to do and a nation to build.”
Rosmah who has since been arrested, will be charged under the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism and Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act tomorrow.
