MCMC hauls up sex blogger couple

By Kimberly Yeo

The sex blogger couple who created an uproar with their controversial Facebook posting have been called up to be present at the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) tomorrow to give their statement.

MCMC chairman Datuk Mohamed Sharil Tarmizi said the couple, Tan Jye Tee (Alvin), 25, and Vivian Lee, 24, are to assist MCMC in the investigations of the post.

Their post was attacked by remarks and complaints from netizens for its insensitivity towards religious issues that prompted the Facebook administrator to close down their page.

Sharil urged Facebook users to lodge a report through the ‘onboard tab’ to the administration on any posting that is insensitive or which may create trouble and not to share posts that might disrupt the multiracial harmony of the country.

"You may shut us down now but we will be back and be stronger and better than ever. Enjoy your Ramadan for now," the couple posted on their Alvin and Vivian twitter account last night.

Last Thursday, the couple posted a picture with the greeting "Selamat Berbuka Puasa" (happy breaking fast) while eating "bak kut teh" (herbal pork soup). The halal logo was also displayed on the picture. - June 14, 2013
