RPK the difference between Dr Mahathir and Najib is glaring “when you compare how Najib does things. Najib has class while Mahathir is rude. That is why Mahathir is acceptable to Pakatan, whose DAP supporters are also rude.”

The Twitter users were incensed at RPK’s assertion and disgusted at his insinuation about Indian immigrants, some saying he profiled Indians as ‘rude’.

One threw the “rude” epithet right back at him. “Only a rude person make a rude statement like this,” wrote a netizen called Faizah.

Another netizen showed what he or she thought of RPK’s tweet by posting a GIF of a person defecating, with the caption, “For you, RPK…”

Other netizens called him out for pulling out the racism card yet again.

Others called RPK out, or made fun of him, due to the elitism in his tweet

One commenter challenged the blogger to come home to Malaysia and actually help the solve problems at home, since RPK is presently residing in England.

Another wondered how much he got paid for having supported Mr Najib.

The blogger’s comments seemed to have backfired, as some netizens started calling Mr Najib a “well-bred thief”
