Aisar Khaled received a massive amount of backlash for using Siti Sarah Raisuddin’s unfortunate death as content to gain clout on his YouTube channel.
The 21-year-old uploaded a video titled, “Aisar Khaled Melawat Kubur Arwah Siti Sarah Raisuddin” yesterday. According to Harian Metro, it gained 90,000 views 4 hours after it was uploaded, it addition to 10,000 dislikes.
In the video, the influencer recorded himself driving to Siti Sarah’s graveyard in Gombak. Besides using the death of the late singer as a content for clout, Aisar also conveniently did a giveaway in that video. “I know we all wanna stay relevant but how about having a PERSONALITY instead of relying on that face?” Twitter user Ceddy commented.
The influencer has since gone private on Instagram and tweeted an apology saying, “Assalamualaikum everyone, I’ve deleted the video. I apologise to Siti Sarah’s family for not thinking properly before uploading the video. Won’t repeat it again. I’m so sorry. I’ll learn from my mistake.”
There’s no question that Aisar crossed the line with his insensitive episode. Malaysia doesn’t need a Logan Paul, thank you very much.
Update (Wednesday, 11th August):
Shuib has finally issued his response in addressing Aisar’s recent controversy. According to the celebrity entrepreneur, he was actually reluctant to give any comments about that. Instead, Shuib emphasised that everyone should be sensitive towards others.
“I don’t want to comment further on that. We have to be highly sensitive about this matter. We still don’t know how big God will test us in the future,” he told the press. “Yes, I’m mad. But still, we have to be sensitive. We have no idea what the future holds for us. So it’s better to love each other and focus on the good things.”
Meanwhile, Sharnaaz also appeared to chime in on the recent issue with a “deep” message specifically directed at the online celeb. The actor wrote, “@Aisar_Khaledd maybe this world hasn’t been fair to you yet. If that day comes, don’t ask what your fault is. Save the footage on YouTube for your reference, because it may contribute to the karma in front of you. Till then. enjoy your life, buddy.”
