Last Sunday (30th August), the K-pop starlet uploaded a photo of herself donning head-to-toe outfits by Calvin Klein, in collaboration with the famed clothing brand.
The “Abang Long Fadil” actor left a comment that reads, “Honey, no wonder I tried finding for my boxer and couldn’t find it. You were wearing it. Please wash and give it back later, I just bought it from a bundle,” pointing at the undergarment worn by Jennie.
Although the statement was intended as a joke, a lot of netizens slammed the comedian over his insensitive remark. In this case, a lot of fans pointed out that Zizan had crossed the line and deemed his comment as a form of sexual harassment. Some even argued that the “Raja Lawak” alum was trying hard to be funny.
As a result, Zizan became a trending topic on Twitter over the weekend. Check out some of their comments here:
Can Zizan like, stop embarassing himself by commenting stupid stuff on international celebrities' accounts and I don't know, maybe focus on his declining career ??
