PETALING JAYA: Bukit Bendera MP Zairil Khir Johari has termed the recent circulation of photos allegedly showing him and DAP's Dyana Sofya kissing each other to be "gutter politics at its lowest".

Though the photos were seemingly uploaded on what appeared to be a Facebook account with his profile picture, the 32-year-old Opposition MP did not respond as to whether the social media account was fake, or if it was the job of a rogue hacker that infiltrated his personal account.

"Would rather not dignify the issue further," added Zairil.

When contacted, Dyana said she found it "disgusting" how gutter politics are constantly used against the Opposition.

"Being a woman, I'm an easy target. I'm angry," she said.

However, Dyana did not wish to stoop to the level of their antagonists, nor indulge them with future comments.

"Not the first time doctored photos used against me. This is gutter politics and I’m sure it won't be the last time," she added.

The 27-year-old had also issued frustrated missives - purportedly referencing the incident - on her personal Twitter account @dyanasmd.

"Sigh. Not again. Prolly (sp) it's time to take real bikini photos! Okay. I was kidding," she tweeted early Sunday.

The photos had surfaced early Sunday and quickly went viral.

The two, who resembled Zairil and Dyana, are seen locking lips in both indoor and outdoor locations, including the interior of a car.   

A woman, who bears a striking resemblance to Dyana, is also shown pouting alone in one sepia-tone picture, and smooching the cheek and forehead of a man resembling the MP in others.
