Woman cries foul after 'lewd bahulu' selfies go viral

MIRI - A businesswoman has lodged a police report claiming embarrassment over the unauthorised online circulation of selfies she had meant to share only with her friends on Facebook.

Faridah Ulis, 45, fondly referred to as Mamadot, lodged the report at the Miri central police station at 11.41am yesterday and at the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission branch here in the afternoon.

One of the selfies showed her with a penis-shaped ‘bahulu’ cake she claimed she found on sale at a shop before the Chinese New Year.

“My main intention in lodging the report with the police and MCMC is to find the culprits who shared my selfies without approval,” she told Bernama here today.

She said she shared the selfies with her friends on Facebook and not with those outside of her friends’ circle in the social network.

Faridah said the selfies were uploaded onto her Facebook account a few days before Chinese New year and after finding out that it had been posted to other groups on Facebook without her knowledge she deleted them immediately.

“I had no bad intention when sharing the selfies with friends as it was just to inform my friends about the bahulu. It was unique, and I even bought some for my friends,” she said.

She said the selfies were shared and it was even wrongly stated that the bahulu was being sold in Langkawi for RM4 per packet.

“My husband is also upset over the negative comments made by Netizens criticising my action for taking selfies with that bahulu,” she said.

Meanwhile, Bernama made a check and found that the shop which sold that bahulu had stopped taking orders for it after the negative reaction from Netizens and the public. -- Bernama
