Bella Astillah came under fire for wearing a Malaysian Airlines (MAS) stewardess uniform during a birthday celebration back in September. In order to clear the air on the issue, the local celeb came up with a lengthy post on her Instagram page.
According to Bella, she didn’t know about the history and ethics related to the uniform. However, she clarified that the people from MAS approached her and explained to her about the outfit. She also issued a public apology over the recent controversy.
“I decided to don the MAS Uniform simply because it’s always been my dream since childhood to become a flight attendant for the airline (The party was themed ‘Dream Job’). They came to meet me and explained in detail about the special features of the uniform. Alhamdulillah, I gained a lot of knowledge from there,” Bella wrote on the caption.
“I apologise for using the uniform without any prior knowledge on this and also the ethical history about the uniform. This serves as a reminder to the public to be more careful so that this uniform is not misused. Thanks a lot MAS for your time and willingness to meet me,” the “Tenang” singer added.
