Neelofa, Hans Isaac and local celebs fight fake news and cyberbullying

KUALA LUMPUR: Local celebrities have joined hands for a campaign against cyberbullying and fake news on social media.

The public service announcement campaign themed “Spread Truth Not Lies” and “I Am With You” aims to educate people on their right to protect themselves from cyberbullies or fake news.

The campaign was spearheaded by entrepreneur and celebrity Nor Neelofa Mohd Noor and actor Datuk Hans Isaac.

During the launch, Neelofa (pic) said the idea came about after talking with her family and other celebrities about cyberbullying on social media.

As a celebrity, she said she also gets bullied on a daily basis, with netizens leaving negative comments on her social media accounts.

“Some people feel it’s part of their responsibility to 'advise' people but they go about it the wrong way.

“Many don’t realise they are cyberbullies,” she said.

The campaign was launched by Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak on Tuesday (April 17).

Also present at the official launch was Star Media Group group managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Wong Chun Wai.

Other artists present included Awal Ashaari, Maya Karin, Joe Flizzow, Nora Danish, and Kavita Sidhu.
