Tunku Mahkota Johor, Tunku Ismail Idris ibni Sultan Ibrahim, took to his social media to issue his direct response to a netizen who questioned the humanitarian attitude of the people of Johor when other states were being affected by the recent flooding.
As reported by Murai, a Twitter user named @xmierul_ had called upon the Johor Prince to lead by example. This came after an online page, Harimau Selatan X, came up with a post, apparently mocking the flood disaster that occurred in Selangor recently.
“Pardon me your highness, is this how Johorians behave when fellow citizens in another state are affected by a disaster?” the netizen questioned. Refusing to stay silent after receiving the comment from the Twitterverse member, TMJ immediately responded to the netizen’s tweet on his official social media.
“Greetings. First of all, why would you entertain this crazy page? Secondly, the Official JDT page did come out with a statement (about the current matter), but nobody tagged me. Thirdly, the attitude of the people of Johor is more or less similar to mine, we’re always here to lend our hands. My family and I offer our help every day. But no one notices that. How fascinating,” he replied. The netizen has since removed the tweet at the time of writing (Monday, 20th December).
In his long post on IG Story (as per the web’s report), the Johor Darul Ta’zim football club (JDT) also pointed out that the public has been throwing unnecessary hate towards his sports team. He stated, “There’s no need to come up with a page like this, even people like you have long started to hate JDT. How long has this page been created? And how long has JDT been formed?”
“Just because of this one lunatic page, you want to bring down the whole JDT club? Why can’t you just ignore and not entertain the posts shared by that crazy social media account? The answer might be because anything that brings damage to JDT must be highlighted,” the 37-year-old added in his post.
At the end of his statement, TMJ also revealed that he’s aware of these internet trolls. To quote the Crown Prince, “We have nothing to do with these people stirring drama (on the page). Please go and find another point (to discuss).”
Moral of the story: You don’t want to mess with TMJ and also his football team, cause you know the Johor Prince isn’t going to take foolish remarks lightly.
