PETALING JAYA: Malaysian gold medalist Farah Ann Abdul Hadi (pic) has hit back at those who critcised her for her "revealing" attire at the South East Asia (SEA) Games in Singapore.

"Empty cans make the most noise," was her response on Twitter to those who condemned her for dressing "indecently" during her gymnastic routine on Thursday.

Some members of the public had publicly shamed her for not dressing decently during the games after a photo of Farah was uploaded on Facebook following her gold medal win for Malaysia.

Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaludin, in response, had said that only God can judge the deeds of Farah.

"Let God be the judge, not us. In gymnastics Farah wowed the judges and brought home gold.

"In her deeds only the almighty judges her, not you. Leave our athletes alone," wrote Khairy on his Twitter account on Friday.

His statement was echoed by many of his Twitter followers, with many who called on the critics to appreciate the glory she brought to the country instead.
