Malaysian actress Datin Paduka Eina Azman has been dominating the headlines and gossip portals over the past few days.
Apparently, the commotion started after she was called out for allegedly cutting the queue to receive the Covid-19 vaccine at a hospital located in Ipoh, Perak.
Eina (full name Ainur Syakina Azman) shared a photo on her Instagram earlier on Wednesday (26th May), taken with her husband Datuk Paduka Kaiser Gurmeet Harden, after the duo got vaccinated at the hospital. She has since removed the post, after many people began questioning how the 26-year-old managed to skip ahead of the elderly and the frontliners.
In response to that, Hospital Raja Permaisuri Bainun (HRPB) Ipoh director Dr Abdul Malek Osman issued a statement to shed some light on the matter. According to him, the couple were eligible to receive the jab based on the referral of a specialist doctor who had treated the couple for their health problems and co-morbidity issues.
Dr Abdul Malek further clarified that there is no such issue of jumping the queue in giving Covid-19 vaccine injection. The couple were included in the list of vaccine recipients on the advice of a specialist doctor as both the “5 Jingga” actress and her spouse are supposedly in the high risk group.
After receiving tons of hateful comments from social media commentators out there, Eina took to her Instagram last night (Thursday, 27th May) to apologise over the controversy. In this case, the local starlet stated that she and her husband had no intention to offend anybody over the IG post.
“As a matter of fact, the authorities have also released an official statement on this issue. I have a health problem, but it is too personal to share with the public and it’s only for my family’s knowledge,” Eina wrote on the post. “Therefore, I deleted the Instagram post to prevent this issue from getting more complicated.”

Actually setakat kecam si pesakit kronik Eina Azman & suami hodoh dia tu, takde terkesan sangat lah kat diorang. Dia limit komen dan sambung berjoget kat tiktok.
But kita boleh pressure brand yang kerja dengan dia. Apparently, Maggi dan Hershey's?
