LOCAL actress Nadia Brian (pic), 30, has warned social media users that she will not hesitate to start legal proceedings against those who make jibes at her ‘’appearance, body figure and womanly assets’’, Kosmo! reported.

The actress – who stars in the drama called Aku Yang Kau Gelar Isteri – said she was shocked after seeing some of the comments directed at her.

She added that she had not imagined that social media users would resort to posting such hurtful comments.

“I wonder why they are so hasty in writing such nasty comments.

“They have to remember that there are laws in our country, ” she said.

She urged social media users to respect others and to spread positivity.

Nadia, whose real name is Nadia Najwa Mohamed Rashidi, posted a screenshot of several comments on her Instagram account on Sunday with a user questioning her body figure.
