JOHOR BARU: The MCA is demanding that Seputeh MP Teresa Kok apologises publicly for her controversial Onederful Malaysia video clip, which it says provokes racial sentiments and has tarnished the true meaning of the auspicious Chinese New Year celebrations.
The party's national complaints bureau chief Jason Teoh said the 11-minute video clip was not in line with Malaysia's nation building aspirations as it had elements of defamation and was inflammatory.
"She should apologise to the nation and to the Chinese community as the video paints a negative image of the country and the Chinese," he said in a press conference held here Friday.
Teoh added that, as a Chinese, he was embarrassed by the video as other races might get the wrong image of the community.
In the video clip, Kok poses as a feng shui talk show host and has "panellists" poke fun at various national issues, including the education system, rising cost of living, public safety and the foreign intrusion into Sabah in February last year.
