If you're an active user of Instagram, and are privy to the goings-on in the influencer world, you might have at least seen a picture of Singaporean social influencer Xiaxue made up as ex-Prime Minister's wife, Rosmah Mansor, floating about.
If you are especially privy to the goings-on in the influencer world, then you'd know that Xiaxue had dressed up as Rosmah for Halloween as it was the second most popular request by her followers. The photograph was first uploaded 4 days ago, and since then, it has garnered 28,286 Likes and an onslaught of comments that were a mix of negative and positive reactions.
According to Xiaxue, her get-up as Rosmah was on point for Halloween.
“Think about it, what’s scarier than rampant corruption in a country, right? So very, very apt for Halloween.”
Of course, in true Xiaxue fashion, the controversial influencer bit back at haters with glee on the Instagram post.
Keep your hate comments coming people!! I love any form of attention 😍 I especially appreciate the lengthy Malay comments because I can’t understand them so I imagine you guys are saying I’m so talented and pretty lol!
However, she continued her post on a more serious note, telling her haters not to make this into a conflict between Singapore and Malaysia. This is due to the fact that Najib and Rosmah supporters, having taken offence to her getup, had come out of the woodworks to bash her online.
Don’t try to make this a SG vs Malaysia thing. After 1MDB Singaporeans were all rooting for our Malaysian friends during the elections and we cheered together with them when the results came out. Their high spirits of hope and renewed faith was infectious and Singapore felt it too.
In the same post, she expressed her shock that there are Najib and Rosmah supporters to begin with, as she had been under the impression that everyone had followed the Najib and Rosmah debacle since it had begun.
I am completely flummoxed by the fact that Najib/Rosmah actually still has supporters. 😨 how is it possible?! I thought everyone hated them?! Do people not watch the news? Of billions embezzled? Of 72 suitcases of cash, branded watches and birkins etc seized from properties linked to them?
Well, whatever the case, knowing Xiaxue, it won't matter just how many hate comments she'll receive. That video might very well be here to stay.
