In this current age of technology, everything is at your fingertips. It’s hard to imagine anyone without at least one social media account such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or TikTok.
That being said, the cyber world can also be risky, whereby many have fallen victim to those who misuse these social media apps. Take what happened to this Twitter user known as Raja Syaza for example.
The female netizen recently uploaded a screenshot of a DM she received from a man who harassed her on Facebook. As seen in the screenshot, the sender had reached out to Syaza to enquire: “You’re so pretty. Is it true you’re married? Where are you from?” Raja Syaza replied sarcastically, “My husband asked, ‘How does a married person look like?”
Instead of apologising for his action, the man decided to “lecture” Syaza. After receiving her response, he replied, “A married person should (close all social media accounts), stay indoors, cover themselves when going out. (I’m an) old school, otherwise men will get confused. My apologies for asking. Send my regards to your husband.”
Now that Syaza’s tweet has gone viral, the comments have been flooded with netizens putting the man on blast. One user, Fina (@AfrinaAfrisley), commented, “Is he living in the 80s or 90s? Come on now bruh, it’s 2022. Can’t women (be) themselves even after getting married? I hope my future husband won’t have a narrow mindset like this guy.”
Another social media user known as Anis (@KA1JONG1N) told Syaza that her post had also made its way on Facebook. However, much to her surprise, she found that most of the comments left by FB users were supporting the man. “They made a lot of assumptions. The reactions on FB are far more different as compared to on Twitter,” Syaza remarked.
In commenting more about this, Syaza stated that she doesn’t really care about the responses shared by netizens on Facebook. Instead, she pointed out that she was amused by the differing opinions left by the commentators on the two social media platforms.
Update (Wednesday, 23rd March, 3pm):
The identity of the man who allegedly harassed Syaza has finally been revealed! The guy, named Azeem Hanis, appeared to issue his response to Syaza’s claims posted on her Twitter. He explained, “BTW, I’m still single. That’s why I asked her if she’s really married. She looks like a ‘typical single lady’. Unfortunately, she’s only pretty outside (and ugly on the inside).”
Azeem also claimed that he had already apologised to Syaza. He then said, “I didn’t know her IG and her Twitter. I only knew her FB. She didn’t post any photos with her husband (online), that’s why I asked. When I popped the question, she didn’t reply. She then responded with another question, so I answered,” adding that he didn’t expect to go viral after Syaza uploaded the photo of their text messages on her Twitter.
