Actress Zarina Zainuddin (pic) has apologised to her fellow artistes after several of them were named by her son Azal Azrai as having violated the SOP during the wedding of Neelofa and PU Riz, Harian Metro reported.
Zarina said she was sorry if her 25-year-old autistic son had offended her fellow artistes with his Instagram post.
“As a human, I also make mistakes. Sometimes, we overlook some things, ” she said.
She said that her son handled his own Instagram account.
“He likes to watch the news and knows what is happening. Sometimes, I am busy with my work and not able to monitor him, ” she said.
Zarina said while her son was autistic, he still adhered to the SOP every time he followed her for a shoot.
“In his bag, he has hand sanitiser and face masks. If he enters a shopping mall, he will scan the MySejahtera app and have his temperature checked. He also reminds me to follow the SOP, ” she said.
Azal had captured the attention of Internet users when he uploaded pictures of several artistes whom he claimed had violated the SOP at the recent wedding of Neelofa and PU Riz.
>The intention of a father to donate part of his liver to his son did not come to fruition when the two-year-old died while undergoing treatment, Kosmo! reported.
Jordan Mikhael Isqandar Roslin died at the Hospital Pulau Pinang on April 21.
His father Roslin Rahman, 35, was to donate part of his liver as they had the same blood type.
Jordan’s mother Maryanti Othman, 40, said she and her husband had their sahur meal next to his bed at about 4.30am before they slept off.
“About one hour later, a doctor woke us up and told us that his heart had stopped beating, ” she said.
Jordan, who has a twin brother, was undergoing dialysis treatment at the paediatrics intensive care unit of the hospital.
He was supposed to be transferred to the University Malaya Medical Centre in Kuala Lumpur for further treatment if his condition deteriorated.
Maryanti said both twins had flu and fever about three weeks ago.
While his brother recovered, Jordan’s condition worsened and had to be rushed to the emergency unit of the hospital on the first day of Ramadan.
