TOO MUCH EX­PO­SURE?

Ac­tress Izara Aishah un­der fire for wearing sexy at­tire, writes SYAHIRAH MOKHTAZAR

New Straits Times - - Entertainment -

POP­U­LAR ac­tress Izara Aishah went from feel­ing ex­tra breezy to hot and fiery af­ter find­ing her­self in a heated con­tro­versy fol­low­ing a video of her in an ul­tra-sexy out­fit, which went vi­ral on so­cial me­dia re­cently.

In the four-sec­ond video, it ap­peared that the 24-year-old J Revo­lusi ac­tress was walk­ing down the red car­pet to greet some guests upon ar­riv­ing at a fash­ion event.

She was sport­ing a provoca­tive white dress, which exposed her side breast.

Izara re­ceived back­lash from her fans, which led her to post a pub­lic apol­ogy on her In­sta­gram and Twit­ter ac­counts.

She posted a photo of a long text that de­tailed the apol­ogy.

“Hi all, I want to apol­o­gise to my family, fans and to ev­ery­one that was of­fended with a video of me at­tend­ing a fash­ion event.

“The video is old and not from the re­cent awards show Anugerah Bin­tang Pop­u­lar (Berita Har­ian).”

Ac­cord­ing to Izara, the video was ini­tially spread via What­sApp group chats last Satur­day be­fore it went vi­ral on so­cial me­dia.

She wrote that the video sur­faced af­ter she and her long­time beau, Adib Khalid, who is also chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of Tunes Stu­dio, con­firmed their plans to wed some time this year.

“Though I’m ashamed and sad­dened that some­one had shared such a video of me in my mo­ment of weak­ness, I take full re­spon­si­bil­ity for my care­less­ness and seek for­give­ness from those who I have of­fended.

“I also view this as a test from God and a les­son learned.

“I have a re­spon­si­bil­ity to my fans and will set a better ex­am­ple mov­ing for­ward. Thank you all,” she wrote.

As at press time, the post­ing on her In­sta­gram gar­nered more than 12,000 likes.

She also dis­abled In­sta­gram com­ments for the post­ing.

This is the sec­ond time Izara has come un­der fire for wearing a sexy out­fit.

Last year, she was crit­i­cised for her choice of out­fit when at­tend­ing the Kuala Lumpur Fash­ion Week in Pav­il­ion where she wore a body-hug­ging dress nude-coloured, lay­ered with blue lace.

She made a pub­lic apol­ogy for that in­ci­dent, on her Face­book ac­count.

In her In­sta­gram cap­tion which ac­com­pa­nied the image of her re­cent pub­lic apol­ogy mes­sage, she said: “Prior to this, I have apol­o­gised for wearing some­thing re­veal­ing.

“Ever since then, I have not re­peated my mis­takes.

“The fash­ion event in that video happened be­fore I apol­o­gised pub­licly and since then, I have changed for the better.

“Al­ham­dulil­lah (praise be to God), Al­lah has given me the priv­i­lege to be some­one’s wife soon.

“But ever since I made my wed­ding an­nounce­ment, the old video has been spread around.

“I have for­given those re­spon­si­ble for sham­ing me.

“I re­alise my mis­takes and take full re­spon­si­bil­ity for it.

“Once again, I’d like to apol­o­gise for ev­ery­thing.”

Ac­tress Izara Aishah says she takes full re­spon­si­bil­ity over her choice of at­tire and has is­sued a pub­lic apol­ogy over the mat­ter.
