Local filmmaker and actor Nam Ron sent fans into a frenzy after he shared a couple photos of himself posing shirtless earlier this week, in an attempt to gain more followers on his Instagram and Twitter.
While the award-winning actor-director seemed serious in his effort, it appears that Nam Ron was actually addressing the recent hot topic of a streaming-based TV station and a local producer requiring talents to have more than one million followers on their social media accounts.
“I accepted the challenge from a TV station and some local producers who wanted at least a million followers on social media. Road to one million followers,” Namron wrote on his post. “Full frontal image will be posted if the target is reached before 2022.”
After sharing the risqué photos online, the 52-year-old revealed on his Twitter that he was sexually harassed by an individual claiming to have a liking towards much older men. Nam Ron (real name Shahili Abdan) shared, “Just received a sexual harassment DM from this one account owner, with his profile description stating, ‘I like old men aged 40++'”
“I assume, this has something to do with the half-nude photos that I posted earlier. Hopefully, I will be able to endure this and will never get tempted,” the “Saka Nan Sepi” star added in his tweet. Not only that, Nam Ron also revealed that the account was filled with several photos of men (including Malays) showing their penis!
That being said, Nam Ron tweeted that he won’t be revealing the account to the public. He stated, “Please don’t ask me to share the link (of the account). I cannot!”
