The legal case of former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak has been an arduous one. After years of trials and investigations, the High Court finally upheld their verdict against him last week. The 69-year-old is the first former Prime Minister to be arrested, convicted and sentenced to jail. There were rumours going around about him receiving special treatment but those have been denied by officials.
It’s quite expected and nothing out of the ordinary for his family to express their worries about his health and safety while he carries out his sentence. The former politician’s daughter, Nooryana has been very vocal about the whole thing. She recently posted on her IG story expressing her concerns for her father but it wasn’t very well received by netizens. Here’s why:
It’s not surprising for a daughter to miss her father. Regardless of the public’s opinion on Najib, he is still a father to his children. His daughter, Nooryana or simply Yana, believes her father is innocent and has been voicing out her thoughts during the whole case thinking that justice was not served. After a week has passed since his sentence, Yana posted an IG story worrying about her father.
One would think it’s normal for someone to be worried about their father’s well-being but this wasn’t necessarily the case. In the IG post, Yana shared that she had a hard time shopping for groceries as she feels guilty for being able to freely buy her usual items while her father is in jail. She also revealed that she couldn’t go to Starbucks cause she’s reminded of how her father would always order the Caramel Machiatto.
“Those who knew [my father] knows that he is a big FOODIE. As a daughter, I truly miss buying food and feeding him. I pray to experience this once again,” she said in the post. Her IG story was then shared and went viral on Twitter. Instead of receiving sympathy from netizens, Yana was slammed for her seemingly heartfelt post. Some felt weirded out at how she addressed her father as “bossku”.
For your information, Starbucks’s caramel macchiato cost RM16.96 for a grande and RM18.55 for a venti. Yana has yet to respond to the backlash on her IG story.
