Expressing solidarity with protests, actor Henry Golding raps former Malaysian beauty queen
"You have zero idea what black people have to go through on a day-to-day basis. For you to be talking such racist nonsense on a platform like yours needs to be called out."The majority of us will never truly be able to understand what the black community go through every single day, but one thing for sure you can do is to lend a voice.
"To teach people and educate them on opening their eyes to what's under the veil. It is hundreds of years of oppression and injustices kept in place by money and power from people such as yourself. Ignorant, selfish people," he said on his Instagram stories early Tuesday (June 2) morning.
Golding added that Malaysia, too, had gone through a lot in the past few years, pointing to the Bersih protests in the country where people had"put their lives on the line to be heard"."If you were part of that movement, then please understand where the protests came from.
"We need to keep progressing Malaysia forward, by starting with ourselves," he said.He also called James, a model who is of Chinese and Brazilian parentage, a"two bit celeb", adding that he was not going to"stand idly" as she"spouts some horrible s***".
On Monday (June 1), James posted several controversial Instastories linked to the protests in the United States, which were triggered by the killing of African-American George Floyd.She had said coloured people"chose to be born as a coloured person in America for a reason", claiming that it was for them to"learn a certain lesson".
Floyd was suffocated to death by a police officer who knelt on his neck for over eight minutes in Minneapolis on May 25.Many social media users have since condemned James' remarks.However, comedian Harith Iskander has come to James' defence, accusing her detractors of cyberbullying, although he also acknowledged that what she had done was"not cool".
"What I want to call out is the response to her post from people who should know better - responses like this who refer to her as a '******* waste of space'."This borders on cyberbullying," he said.Meanwhile, the Miss Universe Malaysia Organisation (Mumo) has distanced itself from her controversial remarks, while there is an online petition urging Mumo to strip her of her title.
Yeah Henry, tell it like it is. Not like that Harith Rosmah Loving comedian who now attempts to be rational. If u are a public figure with 167k followers, the rules don't apply like for normal people. With great powers comes great responsibilities. like either of you know what is going on. let's turn the protesters loose in Kuala Lumpur and watch them burn your city. let's watch them kill and beat citizens.
She prides herself 'WHITE' and views people with a different skin color as fated souls that should only surrender themselves to prejudices and injustices.
