MALAYSIAN actress Amelia Henderson is not one to shy away from a showdown, as seen by how she deals with off-colour comments sent to her via social media.
Kosmo! reported that a TikTok user commented on a post of hers saying: “If I were a millionaire, I would have asked for your hand in marriage.”
It led to a retort from Amelia: “Even if someone is a millionaire, there is no guarantee of an opportunity.”
Amelia, 27, subsequently shared the exchange on Twitter, with the caption: “Women are not objects for sale”.
Amelia, who appeared in the drama Kisah Cinta Kita, was in the news recently after questions were raised about her relationship with Aedy Ashraf, 28.
The actor had posted a cryptic message about how some people were only meant to be a memory in his life.
> She was his workmate, whom he addressed as “kakak” (elder sister) since she was 10 years older than him.
But “kakak” is now “sayang” (darling) as Muhammad Amirul Suhanan, 28, and Emmayuza Yusof, 38, got hitched in February.
The couple from Johor was featured in Harian Metro as an example of how age is just a number when it comes to love.
Recalling their early days while working at a hypermarket, Muhammad Amirul said he would always tease her and would feel empty if he did not see her.
The report highlighted another couple in Kelantan who wedded in February.
Muhammad Hakim Hanif Rosli, 24, got to know Haslinda Haron, 46, via WeChat in December last year.
He said he was attracted by her sense of humour. Furthermore, he said Haslinda did not mind that he was just working in a village.
“Although he is much younger, he is a very responsible and loving person,” said Haslinda, a kindergarten teacher.
Her previous marriage ended in 2018 after 22 years.
