The Petronas Twin Towers Were Allegedly Airbrushed Away In This BN Poster
The poster was tailored for Transformasi Nasional 2050, which is one of the points in Barisan Nasional's manifesto.
On 7 April, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak presented Barisan Nasional's manifesto at Axiata Arena following the dissolution of Parliament on the same day
One point in particular, stood out from the rest for some netizens
Some netizens took it to Twitter to express their disappointment in the poster
Local non-profit organisation Lawyers for Liberty wrote in a tweet that airbrushing away Petronas Twin Towers in the poster just because it was built in the era of former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad was "childish and petty".
One netizen also wrote that this move showed how much Mahathir "haunts" Najib and the ruling coalition.
Another netizen mocked the poster for "moving" the Petronas Twin Towers to the Upside Down, a 2012 movie that portrayed a twin world that sits just above the existing one.
However, others defended the poster, calling for netizens to interpret the poster better
One netizen wrote that Petronas Twin Towers were airbrushed away because it showed that Barisan Nasional could bring success without the iconic towers.
Another netizen also praised the team behind BN’s manifesto for doing a good job because criticisms are aimed at the aesthetics of the poster instead of its contents.
One netizen also said the team behind the poster was smart for intentionally putting a flaw in the poster in order to get the public’s attention.
