Standup Comedian Kumar Responds To Jocelyn Chia's Jokes & Asks Her To Seek Mental Help
Singaporean standup comedian Kumar recently apologised to Malaysians in response to Jocelyn Chia's controversial comedy routine
Kumar, a popular comedian, actor, and TV host, released a video on his social accounts which have garnered over one million plays since it was posted two days ago.
"I would like to sincerely apologise on behalf of Jocelyn Chia's standup comedy show. I really don't think people should use standup comedy as a tool to vent out your anger and hatred. Please learn from this," he said in the video.
"For Malaysia, we need you for fun, food, and leisure, and for some of us — work," he goes on to say, adding a note to Chia, who was born in the US but grew up in Singapore
"Jocelyn Chia, if you're watching this, I really think you [should] seek help because you really have some issues. Thank you," he ends the video.
"Malaysia and Singapore are brothers and sisters, any animosity created is not good for us," he emphasised in the caption.
Chia recently came under fire for a comedy routine she performed in New York, which poked fun at the MH370 tragedy
