A Chinese Malaysian studying in Taiwan is in trouble after posting a video of a “racially provocative rap of the Malaysian national anthem” on Youtube. Malays in Malaysia have criticised the rap, saying that it has abused the anthem and is disrespectful. In the 6-minute rap video, the 24-year old who goes by the moniker, “Namewee” included content on the discrimination faced by the Chinese in Malaysia.
The video has drawn flak from many, who feel that it could further widen the chasm between the races in Malaysia, and “Namewee” could face a stiff penalty if he’s convicted of violating the Sedition Act.
