Neelofa and her family members continue to become the talk of the town. Things got heated recently when the celeb’s mom, Noor Kartini was called out over her snarky remark towards the Johor Sultan‘s order.
As seen in the screenshot taken from her IG Story post, Kartini allegedly wrote, “If you’re really concerned, ask the YDPA to cancel the (state of) emergency. You’re just blabbering too much!!”
It didn’t take long before the photo went viral on Twitter, which was unsurprisingly met with various reactions left by local netizens out there. Following that, the 55-year-old immediately removed the post and took to her social media once again to shed some light on the real situation.
Kartini explained, “Regarding the screenshot from my social media (IG Story) about the Constitutional Monarchy system in Malaysia which went viral, I’d like to explain that this happened due to the negligence of one of my employees who has access to my social media (Instagram).” She also revealed that she had filed a police report and will give her full cooperation on the investigation.
Additionally, she also apologised to the Johor King over the “negligence” that happened. “To KDYMM SPB YDP Agong, the Johore Palace especially His Highness, Your Majesty Johore Sultan and all members of the royal family, I would like to apologise for this incident,” Kartini said.
Not long after that, the staff in question, Zulshafiqah Zulkafli, had also issued a statement to address the matter. According to her, “I honestly want to explain the real situation that has happened. I uploaded the screenshot (about the Johor Sultan) by mistake.” Zulshafiqah then clarified that the original writing and photo shown were neither from her nor Kartini.
To our surprise, the controversy even caught the attention of Tunku Temenggong Johor Tunku Idris Iskandar‘s attention! His Highness took to his IG Story to share a screenshot of Kartini’s statement and prompted a question for his followers, “Has her (Neelofa’s) family always been like this?”
Subsequently, the 33-year-old Johor prince also took to his Instagram to share a quote from Prophet Muhammad’s cousin, Saidina Ali ibn Abi Talib. “Indeed, ‘adab’ (manners) cannot be obtained by trading, but it’s something that comes from the heart of every well-educated human-being,” Tunku Ismail shared.
He continued, “Being poor (‘faqir’) does not refer to those who are not wealthy, but it actually refers to the person who has no manners or morals”. Check out the post below:
It’s no secret that people are currently sick of the antics from Neelofa and the rest of her family members. Perhaps a social media hiatus would do them good?
