An International Medical University of Malaysia (IMU) MBBS student is in the eye of the storm for his sexist and insensitive comments following the death of artist Emily Kong, in an accident last Saturday (9 March).

The 29-year-old who was involved in a traffic collision as her car crashed into a tree in Kuchai Lama, drew condolences from members of the public on The Star Online‘s Facebook post.

However, not everyone shared the same feelings for the death of Emily Kong, as the student from IMU decided to share his opinion on how Emily could have avoided the tragedy in the first place.

We’ll let you judge the comment for yourself.

He wrote,

“Condolences. I hope all the girls learn a good lesson now. Never leave the pub without a guy. Man and woman work together.”

Aww… Chivalry lives on after all. But wait! It didn’t end there.

“We offer you a safe drive home and you give us makeout or sex. I mean girls like sex too right?”

“This is what happens when women think they can do everything on their own and be independent. Every woman needs a man.”

Despite having deleted the comment, people kept receipts, and they’re being forwarded to his university.

One netizen wrote, “Future doctor from IMU, JPA scholarship holder. Sex crave comment on a demised local celebrity. I have been told junior doctors are crap, but he is way out of the crap league.”

A petition was then started, alleging him to be a threat to society who should be prevented from pursuing his studies.

IMU Vice-Chancellor Prof. Peter Pook Chuen Keat took to Facebook to respond to the issue.

He writes, “I wrote to the student and requested that he should 1) delete/withdraw his online comments and 2) apologise. I understand that he has cooperated with item (1).”

“Personally, as all IMUians know, we must practise our respective healthcare role with professionalism, ethics AND with empathy. There will be further discussion on this particular case at our university. I am sincerely sorry and sad for the student’s insensitive remarks which has caused so much pain to the family, friends and general public.”

The IMU Student Managed a Non-Apology

He released an ‘apology’, but read at your own risk:

“I apologise to women in general and whomever else who feels offended for whatever reason.”

But that was not the end of it as he began to give his reasoning behind his post.

He wrote, To clarify, anybody who has or is in an open relationship would understand that this is a normal happening. We go out at night with a special person for drinking, and we drop them home safely. We send them home. We protect them.”

“And if they invite us to their place we go and be with them. We kiss, we bond, and we have sex. Our role is to protect them. In return, they give us a good surprise.”

“I forgive those who made this viral despite me removing the comments. I forgive all the hate shown towards me or my acquaintance. I forgive all the vulgar messages I received. And because I forgive, I have not been affected by this at all.”

“Your hatred has not got to me. I also forgive those instigating by misrepresenting the comments to get more likes. This is a social media disease.”

“Let me be the bigger man here and not stoop to profanity or low level of language.”

Let’s be mindful and evaluate what we want to say before incidences like this keep repeating itself, shall we?
