I’m 100 times sorry

Forget the old chalkboard or pen and paper. New punishments are moving towards social media. In Malaysia, Fahmi Fadzil tweeted in January that a pregnant friend of his was treated badly by her employers at Female Magazine, owned by Blu Inc Media. Being a progressive girly mag the magazine’s lawyers threatened with legal action. Because Fahmi can’t afford newspaper ads, it was demanded he is to tweet the apology 100 times for three days. His tweet: “I’ve DEFAMED Blu Inc Media & Female Magazine. My tweets on their HR Policies are untrue. I retract those words & hereby apologise”. Always be careful what you write online. Over the past year, Malaysian authorities have arrested or charged several people who made statements on Facebook that allegedly insulted the country’s royalty or stirred religious tensions. If there is anything you want to publicize, just let us know.
