As Malaysians, we are proud of our artists and celebrities who have achieved success. Unfortunately, regardless of their earnest accomplishments, there will always be bitter netizens who want the last word rather than wishing the best for others.
Actor Remy Ishak has sparked mixed reactions among fans due to a series of photographs. Because of this, his appearance has been dubbed ‘sexy’. One of his photographs, taken while wearing Dior’s Men Fall 2021 Collection, shows the “Jangan Menangis Cinta” actor in shorts that expose his thighs, or “aurat.”
Fans took their opinion to the set of photographs posted on Remy’s Instagram profile. “Why do you have to show your ‘aurat’?”, one netizen wrote. One of them also added a comment in a sarcastic manner, “The flood is terrible is it not”. Apart from distasteful comments, some fans also showed support towards the 40-year-old with comments comparing him to American actor and musician Johnny Depp.
He is not the first male celebrity to be bashed for showing a bit of skin or ‘aurat’. Aedy Ashraf also received backlash for going shirtless and showing his belly button in pictures posted on his Instagram page.
So far, Remy hasn’t responded to any of the comments he received on his post. His silence is giving, as it might be better for the comments to just die down rather than stirring up the netizens more and satisfying them.
