On 9th April (Saturday), Lee Zii Jia (李梓嘉) held a Meet & Greet session with his fans as the brand ambassador for OPPO. In case you didn’t know, the event was held at the My OPPO Space in The Gardens Mall.
During the event, fans in attendance had the opportunity to pose questions to the popular sports personality. Not only that, a few lucky fans were also able to meet him up close and personal! That being said, it was this particular female fan’s interaction with Zii Jia that ended up becoming the talk of the town on social media.

Through a video posted on Twitter, Zii Jia was seen offering a fist bump to the hijab-clad lady, to which she politely declined. The Kedah-born shuttler’s reaction to this was also nothing short of remarkable! In response, he then placed both of his hands on his chest, seemingly heartbroken after finding out that he was rejected by the girl. He then got up from his seat to interact with his other fans instead.
The female fan’s “rejection” in the video was met with plenty of positive reactions from netizens. Most of them praised the girl for keeping her boundaries with Zii Jia. “Wow, much respect for that girl. If I were in her shoes, I would’ve forgotten that Zii Jia and I are not related,” one fan commented. In addition, there were also some who applauded the 24-year-old badminton athlete for being respectful of the Muslimah’s religion.
Luckily things didn’t get too awkward there ;p
