Since we’re all cooped up at home with nothing much to do besides work, many have been struggling on how to be productive. For local influencer Bryan Wee, he decided to dress up in a yellow suggestive dress and parade around with a white cloth.
The YouTuber who has 623k subscribers on YouTube and almost 345k followers on his Facebook account thought it would be fun to portray his own version of #BenderaPutih.
The new #BenderaPutih movement was initiated by the public to encourage to those in desperate need of basic necessities to subtly signal their cry for help. Due to loss of jobs and income, people are no longer solely relying on the government for aid and stepping up to help one another. Thus, the #RakyatJagaRakyat and #KitaJagaKita slogans.
With that in mind, Bryan’s posts have certainly rub people the wrong way. Instead of using his platform for something useful, the “influencer” thought it was cute to make use of the #BenderaPutih trend for the sake of his popularity. Despite being sounded online, Bryan maintains that this is his method of raising awareness.
To rub salt to the wound, the 23-year-old Malaysian is seen thanking 99 Speedmart for apparently gifting him with a bunch of free food items.
