Neelofa can’t seem to catch a break from all the backlash which stemmed from her wedding ceremony that was held in early March.
This time netizens have engaged in an intensified debate on Twitter in regards to the RM60k compound issued to Neelofa and her fam recently.
In this case, a lot of them have been arguing about the total number of guests who were present at the event. One Twitter user using the moniker @FujiyamaOden argued, “Why have only 20 people been compounded? What about the other attendees? Did they lie when registering their names? Hmmm, or did they disguise themselves as tablecloths at that time?”
Another Twitterverse member @senjaUNFILTERED chipped in by commenting, “(There were) 200 people in total who attended her wedding. So if we follow the old MCO rates, Neelofa is supposed to pay RM2,000,000 to cover for her guests who broke the SOPs.” She tweeted in response to local graphic artist Fahmi Reza’s post on social media, who invited his followers to “learn how to count”.
In related news, a family member of the burger hawker who was recently slapped with a whopping RM50K compound has reacted to the hijab entrepreneur’s previous IG Story post about wanting to provide financial aid to his family. According to the man’s wife, Norlaili Shaasii, both of them will not be accepting any more donations.
“There are many people who offered help, but for now we won’t be accepting any more donations. The MoH said that there might be a reduction or exception, so it’s better for us to wait first. If we can’t afford to pay the fine, we believe it’s not wrong for us to accept the offer. If it’s only RM1,000, we will settle the bill – God willing,” the 36-year-old spoke to mStar.
Apart from Neelofa, it was reported that other well-known figures, namely Caprice and PU Azman, have also reached out to the couple to aid in paying the hefty compound.
