Actor Azhar Sulaiman’s daughter, Kasih Iris Leona, came under massive fire this week after a video of her swimming in a white bikini went viral on TikTok. The video has in turn garnered tons of negative reactions from netizens. Many have continued to put the young celeb on blast.
After a brief moment of silence, Azhar finally addressed the recent controversy involving his child. Through a post uploaded on his TikTok, he shared some advice for Kasih. “Please be smart like me, Kasih,” he wrote on the caption.
“I want to share with you some secrets on how I’m able to sustain in the entertainment industry. First of all, you have to be smart. You need to remember that most of the people who follows us online are Malays and Muslims. So be sensitive with your content,” the “Keluarga Iskandar” actor said.
“Secondly, be smart. In my case, if I attend parties, say at Changkat, having fun at private parties and all, I don’t share it on social media. You also have to do the same,” Azhar added in the video. He then quipped, “Please don’t tell Mummy about this because she doesn’t have a TikTok account.”
Meanwhile, Leona’s management team, Xeno Entertainment & Music, also released a statement in response to the controversy. According to founder Prashan Chitty, the company refuse to interfere in the influencer’s personal affairs. “As Leona’s manager, I am less involved in her personal matters. Leona has a good personality. She always helps others and is really sincere. The video in question was posted by Leona on her private Instagram, which was intended for her close friends only,” Chitty told Gempak.
He concluded, “I’m not supporting Leona’s action, but I think it’s her personal life. The only thing we can do is just reprimand her.”
