Netizen @pavitrapillai broke Twitter when she called out rampant white worshipping by Malaysians, and garnered more than 4k retweets and 3.8k likes.
By white worshipping, she means putting white people on a pedestal and wanting to please them (just like how our people were forced to do so during colonial Malaya to survive).
She is specifically angry about how some members of the public give preferential treatment to white people and then treat fellow Malaysians like

“In Malaysia, however, white foreigners are often treated better than the locals themselves.”
“That is the narrative of my tweet.”
The purpose of the tweet is not so much to drive the angmohs out of Malaysia, but rather to urge Malaysians to be kind to EVERYBODY.
Know any Malaysians who are white worshippers and need to wake the hell up?
