Famous Singaporean social media influence Xiaxue (real name Wendy Cheng Yan Yan) has been receiving numerous threats, insults, rude remarks and a whole tons of backlash from several Malaysian netizens who didn’t seem to find her Halloween makeup amusing at all.
Yesterday, the famous online personality shared a 2-second clip of her Halloween look on both Twitter and IG story. The video gone viral on social media, being reported by many local media outlets, thus causing rage among Malaysians especially supporters of former PM Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.
In the video, Xiaxue dressed herself as Rosmah in prison attire, and some Malaysians find her joke as insensitive and disrespectful to the former prime minister’s wife. The 34-year-old beauty blogger shared the backlash she received on her IG story, and she’s very unapologetic for it.
But Xiaxue did mention that she regrets posting the 2-second video on social media because she fear that people would not be interested to watch her makeup tutorial video when it comes out. She also added that she’s a bit fearing for her life after receiving so many threats.
“Luckily I’m flying off right now to erm, Barbados…and won’t be back in Singapore again till 3 months later,” she shared on her IG story. “It’s a Halloween look lah chill. People become all kind of famous people for Halloween and I’m an amateur. That’s why the face do until so lumpy, okay.”
Do y’all think netizens are taking this too seriously? Or has Xiaxue gone too far?
