Many restaurants and food vendors have taken their business online during this movement control order (MCO) and some of them are even personally delivering the food to their customers. We are so grateful for these ones for their dedication and sacrifice, but there are some people who think it’s funny to play stupid pranks on them.
On 25 April, a Malaysian woman was “pranked” by a customer who claimed he was “Ginnyboy from YouTube”.
She sells homemade burgers and it was her first time doing business online. She had received an order for 20 homemade burgers costing a total of RM140 and was to be delivered directly to her customer.
She was discussing with the customer on where to meet via WhatsApp and had agreed to meet near Public Bank in Kuchai Lama at 2pm.
Before meeting up, the woman asked the customer to bank in the money to her first but the customer said she didn’t know how to do online banking and asked if she could pay in cash.
The woman then drove to meet the customer with the 20 packs of homemade burgers and was told to wait front of Public Bank. The customer said she was on the way down and asked the woman for her car number plate, but as soon as the woman gave her car number plate, the customer said:
“Hi 8984 it a prank I’m ginnyboy from youtube u can eat all the Burger.”
After the incident, the woman’s sister shared the incident on Facebook and urged sellers to always charge their customers first before sending the food out for delivery.
This obviously sparked outrage as this ‘prank’ caused the small business or struggling owner to lose money. On top of that, the person said they were ‘Ginnyboy’ which could lead to some people thinking it was indeed ‘Jinnyboy’ (spelt with a J by the way) and cause him to receive potential hate.
However, Jin Lim from the real JinnyboyTV has since clarified that he is not involved in the incident.
Not me, but this is such a fked up thing to do during trying times. https://t.co/qcK7Wp4id1

Hi everyone, I'm sure some of you (or maybe quite a number of you) have been hearing about a post going around talking…
The woman then shared that her sister donated some of the burgers to an orphanage and gave the rest away.
Pranks are never a good idea and the person who did this is just a cruel human being.
