Netizens express fury on teenager’s FB page
BUKIT MERTAJAM: Fu r i o u s Malaysians have taken to Ng Pei Ven’s Facebook page to condemn her.
The 19-year-old, whose act of driving against traffic along the North-South Expressway on Tuesday claimed a life, has become the prime target of angry Netizens.
Soon after the incident on Tueday, Ng’s Facebook page — Cindy Ng — was spammed with all sorts of posts, with some labelling her a “murderer”.
They also commented on her photos as well as timeline, mostly telling her “to die” since she committed the alleged crime.
Checks by the New Straits Times yesterday, however, revealed that her Facebook page, which used to be filled with posts of her involvement in modelling activities and beauty pageants, had been removed.
A photograph of her sitting on a superbike and her participation in a beauty pageant last year, which had since been widely circulated, were all removed. Other earlier posts had also been deleted.
Since then, social media users have turned their attention to commenting on news links related to Ng.
A Facebook user, Karl Bazi, wrote “Murderer: Death Penalty” while another person, Abdullah Hakim, wrote: “Death penalty or jail forever.”
However, there were also those who said the teenager needed psychological help.
Reports that Ng owned a disabled person’s card also did not sit well with Netizens.
Seberang Prai Tengah district police chief Assistant Commissioner Nik Ros Azhan Nik Abdul Hamid confirmed that the woman was indeed disabled.
“She is a slow learner... it is true. Let us investigate this thoroughly.
“People should not jump to conclusions,” he said.
