PETALING JAYA: Controversial Kinabatangan MP Datuk Bung Mokhtar Radin has found himself in the firing line again, this time for linking the German football team to Adolf Hitler.
After Germany humiliated Brazil 7-1in the semi-finals of the World Cup on Wednesday morning, Bung tweeted “WELL DONE..BRAVO...LONG LIVE HITLER”.
His tweet went viral and netizens condemned Bung for being “insensitive” and “brainless” among other things.
In his subsequent tweets, Bung, however, seemed unrepentant and defended himself from the derision on Twitter.
He told Twitter user @Aisehman that he didn’t know what was going on while he told @syazwanrahimy that he was making a joke.
Hitler, the leader of the Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945, was responsible for the holocaust that resulted in the death of millions of Jews.
