M'sians Are Applauding A Beer Promoter For Remaining Calm When Harassed For Doing Her Job
The woman was handing out beer samples at a hypermarket in Ampang.
In a video that has gone viral, a female promoter was shown being verbally harassed for handing out beer samples at a hypermarket in Ampang
In the 46-second video, the man accused the promoter of handing out beer samples to anyone who passes her booth, to which she quickly clarified that she only approached non-Muslims
The man was also heard questioning her about her race and why she was allowed to promote beer at the hypermarket.
Things escalated when she chided him for harassing her. He repeatedly insisted that she speak to him in Malay ("Ini bumi Melayu, cakap Melayu") and showed her the middle finger when she refused to budge.
The promoter had questioned if he was a "racist", which he denied vehemently.
She then said in Mandarin, "So if I speak Mandarin, am I not Malaysian?" earning her a middle finger accompanied by an eloquent "F*** you".
The man who originally posted the video appears to have deleted it as well as his profile from Facebook, but not quick enough for it to escape netizens' notice
A number of netizens managed to screenshot the man's posts before they were deleted.
The man's actions also seem to have backfired on him, as Malaysians came to the promoter's defence and criticised him for verbally abusing her instead
It was also pointed out that the promoter's booth was rightfully situated in the designated non-halal section of the hypermarket
As for the promoter herself, some applauded the woman for keeping her calm and remaining professional when handling the tense situation
