This Malaysian Went To Singapore To Catch The Screening Of 'Thor: Love And Thunder'
Tired of waiting for the airing of Thor: Love and Thunder, one Malaysian guy decided to watch it in Singapore instead
Before Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC) announced that Thor: Love and Thunder is officially banned from screening in Malaysia, Chan Phei Yong took matters into his own hands by booking a flight to Singapore to watch the movie.
Chan posted a photo of him with the ticket at Suntec City's Golden Village cinema with the caption, "Heard you can't watch it in Malaysia, oops!"
His post has garnered over 32,000 reactions and 1,500 shares since he posted it on 19 July. The official GSC Facebook account even responded to his post in good humour.
“Is it correct for you to do this?” GSC said in jest, with the comment receiving over 5,300 reactions.

Due to Malaysia's sensitivity with religion, this may be the major reason why Thor: Love and Thunder is banned in the country. It is also one of many theories that have been discussed by netizens.
The man was ahead of his time, as it was recently announced that Thor: Love And Thunder will never be screened in Malaysia:
