8TV Controversy Video of Ramadan Advertisement

Capture

This is the buzz have been circulating during the Ramadan month. They have about 3 different ads that showing a Chinese girl in Ramadan Bazaar acting inappropriately. Than after people seeing the video people start to complain and 8TV announced that to the public to act appropriately. Maybe people do not understand the purpose of the video or it is not our culture .

People feel offended of this video it is because saying to the Chinese or Non Muslim that do not know how act or behave during Ramadan or at the Bazaar. Because it is like reminding us to do so meaning they do not want to tell us directly but just giving advice.

Can say that it both offended to the Muslim and non Muslim. 8TV CEO Ahamd Izham Omar apologize  and said that the video would be remove. According to the news it is not the first time it is happening. They even have Hari Raya commercial with Christmas song that appear in TV3,NTV7 and TV9.

They even do a Fanpage for 8TV – The Racist TV Channel so far there is about 333 liked the page.

 

They have been blocked on Facebook on number of times but people keep uploading again and again. There is too much video online and they having hard time to block them all. So you all judge it is the video is offending or just a misunderstanding from the people.

這短片的確觀衆帶出“華人”的“文化”是如此不雅。試想​一些小朋友/不懂得華人的人看了過後,他們就很可能覺得​“華人”的文化就是這樣的。
其實這都不是所謂“華人”的“文化”,當然無可否認有一​些華人的確舉動如此,馬來人也有這樣的人,印度人也有,​什麽人也有,只是短片只採用華人來反映這些“文化”,仿​佛“華人”讓人“無意”地批評,如果華人同胞會對號入座​就證明自己的確有這個缺點,某層次上也應當真正反省思考​改進。
在我心目中華夏文化是衣著端正,行動優雅,説話有禮,正​好和短片中帶出“文化”相反。
