Singaporeans lambast Malaysian stylist for saying people over 60kg shouldn’t attend fashion shows

Singaporeans have joined their counterparts across the causeway in flaming a Malaysian fashion critic who sparked an uproar last week after she wrote on Facebook, “If you weigh more than 60kg, please don’t attend fashion events. Your huge thighs will take up so much room, making people sitting beside you uncomfortable.”

The critic, celebrity stylist Zaihani Mohamad Zain, earned quick criticism for her comments which drew the ire of netizens and fashion industry professionals alike. Zaihani’s comments were seen to be especially insensitive since Malaysia is said to have the highest rates of obesity in Asia, according to British medical journal The Lancet.

Responding to the callous comments, many netizens including Singaporeans shot back by poking fun at the industry veteran’s age and looks:

One netizen shared a relevant anecdote that took place in an MRT compartment and pointed out that it is one’s heart – not size, looks or age – that counts:

  1. She is insulting models who wear her designs to walk on stage. Her brain might be stuck in her f tube perhaps. She had forgotten those models are most likely over 180cm weighing above 60kg. Goondu!

  2. Women above 60 should be doing taiji exercises early in the morning at 7am just like below my block every weekday not weekends very beneficial to stay slim and fit.
