There are not that many celebrities out there who are willing to respond to hate comments on their social media. Mostly because these people are not worth their time and energy. But sometimes, these comments can go overboard and some people need to be put in their place.
Some celebs are not afraid to snap back at haters calling them unkind names, others will put rumours and speculations to rest and a few celebs will expose people sending them inappropriate messages. Public figure Iqbal Zulkefli recently fired back at a netizen who called him out for wearing his new gift.
For context, Malaysian singer Iqbal Zulkefli posted a video on his Instagram about a week ago where he got a surprise gift from his dear friend Datin Reena Zach. The singer was definitely surprised and left speechless when he opened a box to find a really expensive Rolex wristwatch inside that cost about RM100,000. In his caption, he describes how grateful he is to have Datin Reena in his life.
Although some of his followers commented saying that they were happy for the “Hujan” singer, there were also those who questioned the authenticity of the Rolex watch. Some netizens commented on his post asking for the receipt to prove that the watch is the real deal.
Iqbal shared a screenshot on his now expired (or deleted) Insta story of one netizen that DM-ed him, calling him stupid and that as a Muslim man he should not be wearing a watch made out of gold to which he replied, “It’s not gold you pig!” The 27-year-old posted another Insta story where he expressed his frustration over these comments.
“If I wear something fake, netizens call me out saying I can afford the original. If I wear something authentic, they’ll ask for the receipt to prove it’s authentic and if I show the receipt, they’ll say I’m showing off,” he pointed out. Seems like he can’t make everyone happy with whatever he does.
That’s just the life of a celebrity. There’s a chance you’ll even get called selfish for breathing air. There’s little to nothing these celebs can do to change everyone’s minds so best they can do is to just simply ignore or block the haters.
