Yuna does not welcome unsolicited advice, especially when it comes to her choice of outfit, or in this case – her choice of styling her hijab!
The local songbird recently launched her new line of scarves in collaboration with local label, Putri N. Rex. Interestingly, the duo had successfully sold more than 100 gift set boxes in just an hour during the virtual launch party for the collection held last night (Thursday, 25th March)!
However, things took an unexpected turn when one particular fan left a somewhat unpleasant comment about Yuna’s latest hijab collection prior to her IG Live session. “(This is) not a hate comment, but (I think I) cannot go with these long shawls, my neck would be exposed anyway,” one netizen wrote.
Clearly, this IG user’s remark didn’t sit well with Yuna. She replied, “Well, move on sis! We don’t discriminate any type of hijabis here, we love them all! The vibe is #embracesilaturrahim (Embrace friendship) and not #discriminatewhoeversnotlikeme (Discriminate whoever’s not like me).”
Following that, the “Gadis Semasa” songstress took to her Instagram Story to fully address her encounter with the online troll. According to her, “We love all you hijabaes no matter what hijab-level you’re at in life. If you wear them full-time or not, wear them as shawls or turbans, covering neck or not, we are all women who are always changing and growing,”
“I’m sharing what it’s like to be comfortable in your own pace. Islam, more than anything, is about having heart and respect to others. Think about that. Peace!” Yuna further added in her post.
We love your direct response, Yuna!
