Local influencer Bryan Wee is no stranger to controversies. Some netizens love him for his bold, daring acts and dressing while others find him distressing. Still, it seems Bryan may have bitten off more than he can chew this time.
Photos of the influencer in a revealing outfit aren’t uncommon. However, recently, Bryan has landed himself in hot water with netizens by taking photos of himself in a skimpy dress while outside the royal palace in Johor.
On 17th February, Bryan posted some risqué photos of himself and influencer Deacon Chai (迪肯) on his Facebook. “We are in Johor!” he announced happily. It wouldn’t have been a big deal, save for the fact that the location in their photos put them right outside the royal palace.
Backlit against the crown arch, Bryan and (influencer) Deacon showed off their curves. The former was in a yellow crop top and short pants with blue underwear, while the latter wore a near-see through white dress and blue briefs. The duo also did several poses for the camera in front of the arch. One included them raising their skirts and showing off their thighs, another showed them pretending to kiss each other. In all the pictures, their underwear could be seen ‘flashing’ the camera.
While some found it hilarious, the majority felt it was an insult to the royal family of Johor. They tagged the official Facebook pages of Johor Sultan Ibrahim Iskandar, the Johor royalty fan club and PDRM. There were several calls for their arrest.
Bryan has since deleted the post. However, police have confirmed that they have received a report regarding the issue and are investigating the matter.
Previously, Bryan has paraded himself in various skimpy outfits in Genting and McDonalds. Yet, this is the first time he may be regretting his actions. Well, hopefully he thinks twice before he acts next time!
Update (Tuesday, 22nd February 2022, 12pm):
Bryan and Deacon apologised for their actions during a press conference held yesterday (21st February). The duo explained that they had viewed it as harmless fun, but understand that it was actually a serious mistake. “We definitely had no intention of offending or bringing a bad influence to society,” they stated. The two content creators also explained they will be temporarily taking a break from social media to reflect on their actions.
