Teenagers love to play pranks on their family and friends. It’s nothing out of the ordinary. Some pranks are completely harmless like switching someone’s pens with identical empty ones or dropping a bucket of water on a friend when they arrive at your doorstep.
But some pranksters can go overboard with their pranks which could result in them going viral and potentially getting a lot of people in trouble. This school had to quickly give out a statement when one student’s prank resurfaced on social media.
As reported by Sinar Daily, an old fake letter has been circulating on social media recently that looked like it was prepared by SMK Seksyen 4 Bandar Kinrara and the Ministry of Education. The fake notice says that all Form 5 male students have to go through a mandatory penis inspection on specific dates at the designated venues.
According to the notice, students who failed to attend will not receive their SPM results the following year. If you look at the dates on the letter, the prank took place in 2019 but it apparently resurfaced on social media recently. At the time of this incident, there were no official updates made by the school. However, a source from the Ministry of Education reported that the school did lodge a report.
After the post resurfaced and went viral, the school officially clarified that the letter was a prank done by one of their students and no such thing has ever been conducted at their school. “The student was suspended. Action had been taken against him,” said the administrative senior assistant Muhammad Asri Heman.
For your information, this actually wasn’t the first time a prank like this was pulled. The penis inspection prank goes all the way back to 2014 but has only happened in American schools. The prank by the SMK Seksyen 4 Bandar Kinrara student was probably the first in Malaysia. Let this be a lesson to not take pranks too far.
