"Who goes to Insta to bitch? Instagram is for pretty pics. Cipet betul Nazir nih." - Jasmeen, on FB, yesterday
|Perhaps Badlisyah Abdul Ghani should ask Nazir to do the needful ...|
Last July, CIMB Group chairman Nazir Razak was quick - some people felt, too quick - to apologise via Instagram on behalf of the bank and posted this photo of grinning CIMB bosses to shame Badlisyah, who was at the time one of his own CEOs, for committing a social media gaffe. "We will conduct an internal inquiry," Nazir declared. As a mater of honour, Badlisyah decided to quit rather than appear before the inquiry.
Over the weekend, Nazir had a gaffe to all his own [Nazir Razak removes Instagram post on inaccurate heading, The Star 15/1]. I don't expect Nazir to sack himself from CIMB or get the bank to start a domestic inquiry to probe his own booboo, but I was expecting, at least, a small apology in the name of professional courtesy from him to Arul Kanda, the 1MDB boss, for his posting.
Nazir can blame the Malaysian Insider for misreporting Arul and misleading him (the portal had to carry two corrections to the same heading because the first correction turned out to be misleading also!) but who is supposed to be the industry expert here: the Malaysian Insider reporter or Nazir Razak?
The average Malaysian pun not as gullible anymore when it comes to some portals ...
