In just a few short days, a previously unknown student from International Medical University of Malaysia (IMU) has become “one of the top internet villains” in Malaysia.
Following his sexist comments after the death of Malaysian celebrity Emily Kong (江倩龄), the private university is now carrying out a disciplinary hearing to investigate the student in question.
“Today, the IMU management team convened an urgent meeting to review the matter. The comments made were highly insensitive. The IMU disciplinary board will commence immediate investigations which will result in a hearing,” IMU said in a statement yesterday.
IMU further stressed that they do not condone such behaviour, by highlighting that it is instituted in 2012/2013 a social media policy that students have to obey. “All IMU students are also expected to adhere to the IMU Student Code of Conduct as stated in the student’s handbook. Our sincere condolences to Emily Kong’s family for their loss.”
In addition, Gerakan Youth has also lodge a report against the now-infamous IMU student for insulting Chinese men and their private parts. “It is such an inappropriate thing to say. I hope the authorities would investigate the matter and take stern action against those responsible,” Gerakan deputy youth chief Pang Whye Nam told Malay Mail.
In the screenshot provided by Harapan News via Says, the controversial individual continued to land himself in hot water by saying that Chinese guys have small penises and added that he had plans to “push Chinese out of the country… Only the prostitute(s) remain here”. The comments have since been deleted.
According to Pang, the young man (who had allegedly enrolled in IMU for 9 years already) is known to be problematic.
