Local netizens have been buzzing about the cycling accident involving YB Khairy Jamaluddin over the past few days.
The issue came to light once again after the price of the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation’s bike became a hot topic of conversation among social media users online.
This came after a parody Twitter account named The Borneo Ghost claimed that the bike is worth RM45,000. Though it cannot be ascertained whether the price of the bicycle is actually priced as the value stated, one Twitter user, however, was taken aback when she saw the post.
As seen in the screenshot above, the netizen, known as iamsapphire (@CikNils) shared that the bike that KJ was using is similar to her husband’s. She also claimed that he had never informed her about the real price of the bicycle! The wife’s tweet has since gone viral, with over 21k retweets at the time of writing (Wednesday, 30th December).
Interestingly enough, the replies section was flooded with many male netizens attempting to save the husband. Was the hubby caught red-handed in buying a bicycle worth tens of thousands of ringgit? Even The Borneo Ghost chimed in by clarifying that they had written the inaccurate price of the vehicle.
