Brazil in the FIFA World cup 2014, MP Bung Moktar Radin is finally apologising.
The offensive tweet, praising Adolf Hitler (who was responsible for the death of millions of Jews) caused an international stir and made international headlines via the BBC, Time, and The Washington Post, among other news outlets. A few hours ago, Bung Moktar tweeted:
When Germany whacked Brazil, I unintentionally said something that hurt d feeling of d ppl in Germany.MY SINCEREST APPOLOGY.LONG LIVE BUNG..ADVERTISEMENT
A few minutes later, PM Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak responded to the controversy and made three posts on Twitter saying:
The comments made by Datuk Bung Moktar are unacceptable and wrong, and he will withdraw them. He does not speak for Malaysia, or for ordinary Malaysians, who understand Europe’s tragic past, and respect its modern unity. This should be a time of celebration for Germany, and we wish them all the best in the final.
Here’s the thing though. A few minutes ago, Bung Moktar tweeted:
It’s no wonder that sites like this one assume that he was being forced to apologised. Oh dear. We have no word. What do you guys think?
