Netizens on social media were left horrified after they came across an ad featured on Shopee. As seen in the viral images, it appears that this Shopee seller has been caught selling pictures of young kids, apparently to fulfill people’s “personal pleasure”.
The matter was first brought to light by Twitter user named Nurul (@softcrocodile). She tweeted, “Found this on Shopee 👀😭. What is this? Is this even real?” Her post had since gone viral, garnering over 1.1k retweets at the time of writing (Monday, 8th August).
In the post, Nurul also uploaded a couple of screenshots allegedly taken from the Shopee account. It’s understood that the seller was selling photos of young children for a whopping price of RM6,942! In the same photo, it stated those who are “keen” can also make installment payments of up to RM385.67 every month. In the description, the seller further revealed that they also provide pornographic materials.
Following the outrageous episode, many are calling for action to be taken against the seller. Not only that, the official Twitter of Shopee Malaysia also issued their response on the matter. They wrote, “Thank you for highlighting this to us as we do take this matter seriously. The action has been taken to the above listing and do report to us if you have found a similar listing 🙏.”
