Currently, former Miss International Malaysia finalist Abby Lee isn’t anyone’s favourite. It’s easy to see why. Abby upset a lot of people with her racist and insulting remarks about Malaysia! Unfortunately, there’s still a lot she has to answer for.
Malaysians are currently raking her over the coals. This time, they focused on her prideful demeanor during the swimsuit section of the pageant. Additionally, many are upset with her treatment towards her parents. Their ‘biggest mistake’ in her eyes? Supporting Datuk Lee Chong Wei during a badminton match.
Abby is no one’s favourite right now, and no one is shy about it. Least of all the person who sparked the whole issue; her cousin. Apparently, she’s been dealing with Abby since their younger years and the final straw was watching her cousin qualify as a finalist for Miss International Malaysia. While blood is thicker than water, there’s only so much a person can take. And her cousin finally decided to let the cat out of the bag.
Since then, netizens have been on a murder spree. Several have been going through her cousin’s archived evidence and what they’ve found isn’t pretty. It wasn’t a secret that Abby thinks herself better than most people, including the previous Miss International Malaysia champion. So, it’s not a surprise to know how much she looked down on her fellow competitors.
Her pride was best captured in the screenshot showing her egotistical thoughts on the swimwear section of the pageant. Taken from her Instagram Story, Abby wrote: “Just (by) looking at the posture, I (should have) won. But I didn’t. Whatever, a bad life is simply like that.”
Netizens weren’t impressed, claiming she didn’t look half as good as she thought she did. “Where did you win?” one comment asked. Others took great pleasure in comparing her to Hong Kong actress Ayi who participated in Miss Asia 2021. Abby’s self confidence reminded them of Ayi and they happily dubbed her as the “Malaysian version of Ayi”.
Additionally, Abby insisted she was “perfect” and “talented”. In another screenshot. she supposedly claimed her modelling photos were “unedited photos, with everything PERFECT”. She went on to claim she had a perfect face and body, lacking fat and pimples. “I’m from a very small countryside (area) with nothing, but my mum has raised me (with talents),” she wrote. “It’s nothing special to be talented if you’re from big cities, but it’s truly inspiring if you’re talented from a small, deserted place.”
Abby’s blatant arrogance was one thing. But what really shocked netizens was how she treated her parents. Abby’s cousin helpfully spilled how Abby had reacted during the infamous match between Datuk Lee Chong Wei and China’s shuttler Lin Dan several years ago. Abby’s family had, of course, been very supportive of Datuk Lee. But every time he scored, Abby would fling a pillow or the remote control at her father.
Her cousin claimed that Abby had always been rude to family members. She recalled how Abby had been angry with her mother for reminding her to drink water, only too collapse a few days later because of a heart failure. Abby also consistently complained about her parents, disregarding their care for her.
Her cousin added that she hadn’t escaped the harsh treatment either. Abby would often take her things, including her toothbrush, or act condescending when they were together. She also shared that Abby was extremely spoilt and babied by her family, even getting someone else to finish her homework for her.
Netizens already weren’t pleased with Abby’s attitude towards Malaysia. To know that she hadn’t spared her own family from her bad attitude was another strike for her. Many had scathing words for the former finalist. However, she seems to be keeping her head down since the nuclear fallout.
Perhaps the incident might be a catalyst to change her. Otherwise, it will be very difficult for Miss Abby to live in Malaysia after this. She’s certainly famous right now, but for all the wrong reasons.
