Remember the time when Yuna was spotted rocking a septum piercing previously? However, it appears that not all people were keen on the Kedah-born singer’s brand new image. Instead of remaining silent, she responded by blocking the online troll on her social media.
Recently, another hijabi singer has found herself landing in hot waters over her shocking image change. Masya Masyitah became the talk of the town on social media soon after she dropped her latest single titled “Simpanan” earlier on 19th August. In this case, many people reacted negatively to the young singer’s outfits in the song’s official music video.
As seen in the photos shared on Masya’s Instagram, she was clad in an all-black outfit and also a dangling headband over her hijab. Additionally, she was also spotted donning a nose ring. The comments section on the IG post had since been flooded with negative remarks from netizens. Most of them called her out for “disrespecting Islam” with her choice of outfits and accessories.
“You shouldn’t wear like this if you’re wearing the hijab. Respect your religion,” one commenter reprimanded Masya. Another person added, “Please don’t tarnish the image of Islam.” “As if you look well-mannered in that outfit. Just take off your tudung, you’re no different from Baby Shima,” another social media user argued.
In response to all the backlash, the “Halimunan” singer clarified, “I don’t know what to say, maybe they’re right! For the record, the nose ring was only temporary. I wanted to look like a bad girl in the video clip. I came up with that image in accordance to the requirements by the MV director. The title of the song itself is ‘Simpanan’, so they’re opting for a more groovy style.”
