Over the past few days, a video of a restaurant customer scolding a smoker who was also eating at the place went viral on social media.
In a video shared by a Facebook user known as Nelson James Bond 007, the man in his 50s can be heard rebuking a smoker who lit a cigarette butt inside the building.
However, the way he reprimanded the man was very inappropriate and seemed to want to invite smokers who were involved in a fight when using harsh words and alluding to sensitive things.
“Don’t you know you can’t smoke (cigarettes) in stores? Do you have people in China? Huh?! China let you? P***** k you’re Chinese, l**** you look- look. What are you smoking?! Are you stupid?!” said the middle-aged man.
“What power do you have (to make comments)?!” replied the smoker.
“I’m Malaysian. Fuck you! P******k! If you want to be slapped, you have face!” he answered.
“I’m also Malaysian. If you dare, report to the police now!” said the smoker.
Meanwhile, the Facebook user who shared the video also expressed his guilt towards the Indian man who linked racial issues when scolding smokers.
Nelson said he was not satisfied because the man seemed to be bullying Chinese people.
“I was drinking coffee and saw this guy bullying the Chinese and yelling ‘P*** China go back to China.’ Are the Chinese so easily intimidated?
“You can be angry at people for smoking, but don’t be angry at Chinese people who come back to China to incite. I have to stand up and help this man (a smoker) not to be bullied like this.
“Smoking is wrong but it has nothing to do with Chinese people. Why do you scold Chinese people and slap your face when you scold people?” he wrote.
Entering the comments column, most netizens expressed their disappointment with the restaurant management which only allowed smokers to smoke inside the area even though the ban had been announced a long time ago.
Netizens also criticized the actions of smokers who did not respect the ban as well as customers who were in the same location and urged the Malaysian Ministry of Health (KKM) to take firm action against smokers involved.
