Despite being caught naked by witnesses, the beauty company reportedly denied the allegations and threatened to sue them
Cari reported that witnesses have called out the beauty company for threatening to sue them after claiming that the photos were falsified.
"Now the police wants to talk to us because the company claimed that our photos are fake, so now they want to find out who took the photos," one local resident told Cari.

The beauty company previously announced on Facebook that a company-wide team-building camp was to take place in Bentong
