MCA's Nicole Wong apologises to Siti Zailah for 'hasty' criticism

PETALING JAYA: MCA Youth chief Nicole Wong (pic) issued an apology to Deputy Women and Family Development Minister Siti Zailah Mohd Yusoff for her earlier criticism of the latter’s video on social media.

She had previously criticised Siti Zailah over the deputy minister’s suggestions on easing tensions within the family during the movement control order (MCO).

Wong said in a statement on her Facebook on Saturday (April 11) that she had earlier read an article on a news portal, in which Siti Zailah’s video was slammed for allegedly sending out the wrong message on how women should handle domestic abuse.

Upon viewing the original video, she found that Siti Zailah had actually offered holistic advice in managing household conflict.

She added that she had been too hasty in her judgment and that her mistake was hers alone and does not reflect the stand of her party.
