Digi offers to pay for damage in "Kuantan road bully" incident

PETALING JAYA: Telecommunications company Digi has offered to pay for all damage incurred by the elderly man and the enraged woman in the "Kuantan road bully incident."

 

The offer which was posted on their Facebook page has been shared 850 times and received more than 1,530 likes.


“Things might have gotten out of hand but we saw a really patient uncle who showed us the value of empathy.


“Uncle, if you're reading this, please let us know in the comments below. We'd love to pay for the repairs of your car.


“To the one who was upset, we know it was a tough situation but if you could find it in your heart to forgive, we'll fix yours too,” said the post.


The video of the incident, which occurred in Kuantan was uploaded onto Youtube and instantly went viral.

In the footage taken by a nearby motorist, the screaming assailant called the man ‘very stupid’ and hurled racist remarks at him. She also demanded that he pay RM2,000 in compensation.

She also repeatedly hammered the elderly man’s vehicle with a steering lock.

The elderly man remained calm despite the woman’s outburst and offered to pay the damages, repeating that accident was unintentional.

Netizens incensed at the unnecessarily violent tantrum and rude behaviour, exposed the woman’s identity, contact details and Facebook account, including information of the bridal company where she allegedly works in.

This further attracted a flurry of criticism and angry retaliatory remarks on the woman’s personal pages. The Facebook account has since been deactivated.
