Following the viral hashtag #doneclaim that has been around for a while now, netizens have been satirically claiming that certain things from Malaysia belong to Indonesia

Last week, Korean DJ Soda received various comments from netizens trolling her photo claiming that the kebaya she wore and the twin towers in the background originated from Indonesia.

The trend is believed to have started when a group of "Indonesian extremists" claimed that some things in Southeast Asia had its roots in Indonesia. 

Malaysians and Indonesians then started the hashtag #doneclaim as a joke to help "claim" things for them before they do it.

Since then, netizens from both countries have been playing along in the banter
