Social media personality Bryan Wee last made the news when he poked fun at #BenderaPutih. Although he received a lot of criticism for it, Bryan maintained it was his method of raising awareness.
Recently, the influencer popped up on people’s radars again. This time, he decided to wear a skimpy cat suit in broad daylight. Needless to say, his publicity stunt has turned heads yet again.
On 26th September, Bryan posted photos of him posing outside a local McDonalds. While the pose itself would have been enough to make anyone do a doubletake, the clothes would have made their jaws drop as well. Bryan wore a near-transparent leopard-print leotard and accessorised with a cat ear head band as well as a strawberry blonde wig. He captioned the post on Instagram with a coy, “Buy me a McD, abang,” and on Facebook, he wrote: “Who’s cat has gone missing? (It’s) location is at McD!”
Netizens were dumbfounded by his daringness. “Very brave of him,” one said while another commented, “Oh my goodness, (it) is too embarrassing.” Another one asked why his clothes had been strategically ripped. Bryan replied: “It’s part of the clothes’ original design. It seems to be for the convenience of keeping things.”
Although netizens were in an uproar themselves, the delivery guys in the background of Bryan’s photos seem used to his antics. Many of them were carrying out their normal routine while ignoring the influencer as he posed for the camera.
Today (27th September), Bryan reportedly went out in the suit again. This time, he was walking around on a road with the same outfit. “What would you do if you met me on the road?” he asked. From the pictures, it appears that Bryan’s photoshoot took place at a traffic light.
Some netizens questioned how he managed to walk around barefooted on the hot asphalt. Others joked around, asking if he was hindering traffic. One netizen even tagged the local police. “PDRM police, hurry and catch him,” they wrote. “Hello, (some) animal has been stolen from Zoo Negara,” another quipped.
Although most netizens either joined in on the joke or poked fun at the influencer, there were others who felt the behaviour was inappropriate. “Don’t shame the Chinese,” one wrote. “(I) feel ashamed for your mother who has such a child.”
Bryan’s thick skin certainly seems to have come in handy for pulling such stunts. Most people wouldn’t be caught dead in such a suggestive costume, especially not in broad daylight. But, to each their own, we suppose. Knowing Bryan, this is unlikely to be the last time we hear of him.
