Woman insists on entering store in mall without wearing a mask

On Wednesday, 27th October 2021, a viral video was shared on Twitter by user @DFEfiercefun. The video has since garnered over 190,000 views, and over 6,000 retweets, at the time of writing this article.

It showed a woman brazenly standing outside a Dior outlet without a face mask, while insisting that she be allowed entry at the store so she could receive a refund for a “faulty” bag.

The video was taken at the outlet in Suria KLCC, as shared by the Twitter user, with the woman in the viral video said to resist wearing a mask even though this is mandatory when anyone is out in public in Malaysia.

She also allegedly said that “those with masks are communist”, presumably when questioned why she was not wearing a mask like other shoppers in the mall.

In a second video uploaded to Twitter, a man dressed in all-black was seen speaking with the woman, trying to make sense of what had happened as she claimed that a staff at the store had “threatened” her.

When asked how the staff had done so, she claimed that he put “his hands on her and pushed her away” when she tried to enter the store.

Later on, the staff in question insisted that he had only done it to stop her from entering the store, because face masks are required upon entry. However, she responded by saying that he couldn’t stop her as “It’s a free country”.

Twitter user @DFEfiercefun also tagged Dior and Suria KLCC Mall’s Twitter handles to praise their staff for handling the situation, while also tagging Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin and Malaysia’s Ministry of Health official Twitter accounts to notify them of the incident.

Hours after the video went viral, Khairy responded to the incident, tweeting, “When in Rome do as the Romans do. When in Malaysia, please mask up. Regardless of the rules elsewhere. @KKMPutrajaya is getting more information from KLCC.”

Malaysia has been fighting against the Covid-19 pandemic for almost two years now. So it’s understandably upsetting to see individuals disregarding SOPs that are in place to help contain the spread of the virus.

Hopefully investigations carried out by authorities will clear up any misunderstandings about SOPs among those who have yet to fully abide by them here.
