Fashion critic Zaihani Mohd Zain stirred controversy in a Facebook post she made yesterday, 17 April, stating that people over 60kg should avoid attending fashion shows as their "thighs spilling over onto the chairs" make it "awkward and uncomfortable" for others
Known as Kak Zai in the local fashion scene, she has since been called out for her "body shaming" statement by designers and models from the fashion industry
Netizens also took to social media to defend the right of the plus-sized community to attend fashion shows
Several people, including comedian Harith Iskander, brought Zaihani's age into the discussion, joking that it may be inappropriate for someone over the age of 60 to attend fashion shows as well.
Zaihani has made headlines for her controversial thoughts on weight before. In a 2016 interview for Tatler magazine, the style critic advised readers, "Watch your weight. People may say size doesn't matter but who are we kidding? It does!"
