Although we’re all obsessed with content nowadays, we should always be mindful that not everything in our lives SHOULD be documented.
Triggering video mocking OKU
A video posted by TikTok user Iswan Ishak is making its rounds on the Internet and has successfully angered a lot of people, especially Senator Ras Adiba Radzi.
The video was shot in the parking lot of a mall in KL. Iswan Ishak can be seen narrating and saying that finding parking in the mall is always hard. So his friend Ajib said that he knows of a way but it’s a little weird.
It turns out that the ‘way’ to get parking is apparently to pretend to be an OKU and to park in the OKU spot. The video has since been taken down.
Senator Ras Adiba has sounded Iswan Ishak!
Of course, many Malaysians were angered by this short video as it makes light of the plight of the OKU and it makes them seem like a tool to only get parking.
Senator Ras Adiba has spoken about this TikTok video on her Facebook page.
Ini kurang ajar namanya.
Pohon minta maaf pada komuniti OKU!
She starts off the video by saying that she is warning Iswan and Ajib for mocking the OKU and using the OKU parking.
She demands that they apologise to the OKU community in Malaysia.
“We are already living a hard life with people looking down on us and with the others always misusing our facilities.”
“Please apologise to the OKU.”
The duo listened and apologised
A few hours after Ras Adiba requested their apology, they admitted their mistakes in another TikTok video.
“I apologise for the video. I did not give enough back story to it and it was my fault.”
He said that the video was part of his content where he wanted to reenact the scenes that he saw happening in real life. He has clarified that he did not park at the OKU parking spot and he should have inserted a proper ending to that video that tells people to not act as OKU to get parking spaces.
“The OKU people have always been silenced and I wanted to speak out for them. However, I did not clearly say that and to the audience it seems like I was mocking the OKU community.”
He apologised to everyone for offending them, especially to Senator Ras Adiba. You can watch the full apology below.
Kepada rakyat malaysia dan golongan oku saya memohon maaf??..matlamat video itu tersalah erti..silap nya dari saya .terima kasih kerana menegur saya
Iswan Ishak spoke to WORLD OF BUZZ
Speaking to WORLD OF BUZZ, Iswan Ishak has said that he did not mean to trigger anyone with his video
He mentioned to us that about 10% of his followers are from the OKU community and they would always complain to him about these kinds of scenarios happening to them.
So that’s why he thought that he wanted to speak out for them by reenacting the scenes in a video.
