A Minah Salleh TikToker has been facing the wrath of keyboard warriors from Malaysia after she uploaded a video of her reacting to an exotic fruit popular in the South East Asian countries – The mangosteen!
The user, known as Michelle Brown (@missbedhead), revealed in the clip, “I just discovered my favourite fruit this weekend”, just before sharing with the viewers step by step on how to eat the fruit using her very own way.
In the short snippet, the girl even excitedly named the fruit “Sweet Garlic Fruit” due to the pulp looking similar to a garlic, much to the dismay of many netizens. Not only that, many also took offence at the way she opened the fruit. In this case, Brown used a knife to cut the mangosteen open, instead of using her bare palms like how typical Malaysians always do!
Brown later declared that she has taken a liking to the fruit, and proceeded to ask netizens who saw this video to also try it. In fact, she even had time to ask if there are any netizens who know what the name of the fruit is. As the time of writing (Friday, 20th August), the clip garnered over 700k views on TikTok.
The comments section were flooded with tons of comments from many Malaysians, who were clearly triggered after watching the video. Some of them informed Brown that the “sweet garlic fruit” that she tried is actually called mangosteen. Others also advised her to do some research about the fruit first prior to coming up with content on her social media.
