For health and safety reasons, shopping mall visitors are required to show their digital vaccination certificate prior to entering the premise.
Sadly though, there are still those who openly refuse to comply to the simple instruction. Worse, some of them even behave rudely to the staff in charge, particularly the security guards.
A customer harassing @IKEA Malaysia security guard yesterday. He didn't want to show his vaccination status and incessantly asked if the guard is fully vaccinated. And then he walked in just like that… So rude. @pedoqpop pic.twitter.com/mU2zXmWDPj

A Twitter user, known as @runwitme, recently uploaded a video featuring a male shopping mall visitor who refused to show his current vaccination status at an IKEA branch located in Klang Valley. As seen in the 14-second clip, the man, clad in a black Muay Thai T-shirt, jeans, and a cap, waltzing right up the mall entrance and even passed by the officer on duty.
“A customer harassing (an) @IKEA Malaysia security guard yesterday (Friday, 24th September). He didn’t want to show his vaccination status and incessantly asked if the guard is fully vaccinated. And then he walked in just like that. So rude,” the netizen tweeted.
It’s understood that the security guard tried to ask the male visitor to show his digital cert on his MySejahtera app, only to get questioned again by the man on whether he had been fully vaccinated. The Twitter post has since gone viral on social media, with over 8.8k retweets at the time of writing (Monday, 27th September).
Scrolling through the replies, quite a number of commentators came forth to criticise the man for his ill-mannered attitude. Apart from calling for the authorities to take stern action against him, some Twitter users also claimed that the male shopping mall visitor is an anti-vaxxer. Check out some of the comments here:
