Najib: It was intense, but all good now
KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak yesterday said Wednesday night’s National Transformation 2050 (TN50) dialogue got intense.
“Discussions got a little too intense yesterday (Wednesday)! A lively discussion, but it’s all good now,” he tweeted yesterday.
Najib assured that all would be heard in the TN50 dialogue sessions being carried out.
On Wednesday night, film producer Datuk David Teo was slapped by comedian Sulaiman Yassin during a TN50 dialogue session involving participants from the entertainment industry.
The incident happened when Teo appeared to question the manner in which Datuk Rosyam Nor handled the session, and claimed that Rosyam had not given everyone an equal chance to voice their views.
The programme, aired live on Facebook, saw Rosyam chide Teo, who was deemed as being disrespectful towards Najib.
Rosyam then gave way to Teo to air his thoughts, and he began to recite a poem.
However, before Teo could finish, Sulaiman made his way to the podium and slapped Teo.
The video of the incident has since gone viral.
