Malaysian actor Erry Putra recently found himself trending on Twitter yesterday (Friday, 25th March). Apparently, this came after a netizen uploaded a screenshot taken from one of his posts on Instagram.
The 44-year-old uploaded a photo of him filming on set with his female co-star. However, it was the caption that drew the ire of many netizens. Erry wrote, “Rogol (rape) time,” along with a series of zany face and sweat droplets emojis (supposedly intending as a joke).
The posting was met with backlash from the public. Most of them expressed their disgust over Erry’s lewd joke posted on his public account. Others also accused the “Si Capik” actor of copying Zul Ariffin’s controversial promotional strategy. For those in the dark, the hunky actor came under massive fire after he posted a snippet of his steamy scene with another actress on his IG.
“Rape is not a word that you can easily use at will. Some of the victims find it hard to live with the trauma of it. I know it’s just acting, but not all things can be made a joke. At least be mindful and be more sensitive with your word,” one commentator wrote. Another chimed in, “Disgusting! Rape isn’t a joke lah stupid! It’s never funny!! He is just as stupid as Fauzi Nawawi.”
So far, Erry (full name Muhammad Razlan Hamzah Ahmad) has yet to comment on the controversy. He has since made his Instagram private, seemingly to avoid backlash from the public.
