Some people can be so insensitive; in this case, one of the major newspaper in Malaysia, Berita Harian.


This caricature was published on today’s edition of Berita Minggu , sparks outrage among readers. Subsequently the editor posted an apology announcement on Berita Harian Online Facebook fan page.

Berita Harian Apology post

The March 11 earthquake and tsunami left citizens of Japan traumatized, it is very stupid to make fun of their misfortune, we will experience the same thing if we are to be hit with the same disaster. Thank God we are (still) safe.

Another thing, if you were to tweet #prayforjapan in Twitter, make sure you REALLY do it, don’t be a celebrity.






Is the editor is not doing the job properly?, or intentionally publish it to gain publicity?

    Oh goodness. I just found out about this. Thanks for sharing.

    I don't know what had got into them. Terribly insensitive.

    Saw this on Twitter and over Facebook. Perhaps the editor didn't realize his/her act but he/she admitted his/her mistake, so I guess we should leave him/her alone – eventhough there are still some parties who are not satisfied with this.

    We should learn to be more sensitive towards other's feelings. Perkara remeh-temeh boleh sensitif, perkara besar mcm ni tidak sensitif pula… Huhu…

    Some of them love to sensationalize small matters.
