Police report lodged against Namewee over latest movie poster


KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The Federal Territory Perikatan Nasional Youth has lodged a police report against rapper Wee Meng Chee or Namewee over his latest film poster that allegedly touched on racial sensitivities.

The police report was made by Federal Territory PN Youth Information Unit member Mohammad Azwan Azmi at the Dang Wangi district police headquarters here at 11.07am on Thursday (Nov 19).

Azwan said the police report was made as the movie poster titled ‘Babi' contains words that allegedly insults three major races.

"This insult and provocation are seen as outrageous and are a rude and insolent act, feared to cause inter-racial tension in Malaysia," he told reporters after making the police report.

He said his party had also asked the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to block content related to the film from being accessed by Malaysians through his Facebook, YouTube or Instagram accounts.
