Her Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts were earlier inaccessible.

Chia, who was performing at a comedy club in New York, first joked about Malaysia being a developing country that was far behind Singapore, 40 years after the island nation was 'dumped' by Malaysia in 1965.

She then made crude references to the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 tragedy in a joke about Malaysia seeking to re-establish ties with Singapore.
