Over the weekend, a video posted by Twitter user @arfdy12 went viral online. It shows a group of people having a “picnic” at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) waiting area. Needless to say, many were left puzzled after seeing the video featuring the individuals.
For those who are curious, the 10-second-long clip was first uploaded on TikTok by user @naimgadget. In the clip, his family members were seen enjoying their meal in the middle of the public area. At the time of writing, the video has received over 1.1k retweets on Twitter.
“Having a picnic at KLIA. What’s your opinion on this?” the netizen questioned. Soon after, many netizens began engaging in a heated debate in regard to the matter. Many of them took to the comments section to share their take about the family’s action. In this case, some people defended them, pointing out that it’s fine for them to dine at the waiting area as long as they don’t litter and block other people’s way.
On the other hand, there were also a few netizens who expressed their distaste towards the family. “I’m not gonna judge, but they even brought along a rice cooker. Oh dear, their behaviour is so old-fashioned,” one commenter said. Others also questioned why they didn’t have their meal at the airport’s food court instead.
So far, KLIA has yet to issue a statement to address the viral video.
