A group of Malaysian influencers recently came under fire for breaking the Movement Control Order (MCO) standard operating procedures (SOPs).
As you may know, social gatherings are still not allowed at this time. Recently, several Instagrammers not only reportedly got together for a birthday party, some of them apparently had the audacity to even flaunt their celebration online.
According to Sin Chew Daily, Yi Fei (宜霏) uploaded an Instagram post to her 491k followers. She captioned the birthday post “One step closer” with the hashtag, #OneMoreHourToGo. The publication also added that some of her famous friends in attendance were Qiu Wen, Yumi Wong, Moon aka Yue’er, and Han Xiiao Aii.
In a now deleted group snapshot, the girls were seen gathering at a venue overlooking the KLCC Twin Towers and Kuala Lumpur. There were at least a dozen of them, all of whom were not practising social distancing or wearing face masks. Not only had these influencers violated the SOPs but netizens pointed that the venue in question was guilty for allowing this occasion to take place as well.
Just a few weeks prior, one of the attendees – Stella Chen (乐晴) who has 757k followers on IG – tested positive for Covid-19. She even posted a 12-minute video on YouTube on how she got infected and her road to recovery. Since word got out, Stella has turned off the comments section. Both Yi Fei and Stella have also limited the comments on their respective Instagram accounts.
Yesterday, Stella even posted what seems to be a reflection on recent events. “Those mistakes you’ve made along your way are lessons, not failures. You were meant to get back up and find a way that resonates with you. There is no expiration date to reinventing yourself. It’s okay, you’re only human,” her caption reads.
When asked about the breach of MCO SOPs, Dang Wangi district police Mohd Zainah told the Chinese daily that he hasn’t received any police report regarding the matter yet.
