Malaysians were quick to disassociate themselves from the woman named Malaysia King, who was arrested in Las Vegas, US for assaulting an Uber driver.
According to CTV News, the San Francisco Police Department arrested the 24-year-old, who was caught on video with her friends harassing and assaulting an Uber driver.
On March 8th, a video recently went viral on social media, of a woman intentionally coughing and cursing an Uber driver who asked her and two of her friends to put on face masks after he picked them up.

This prompted Malaysians to quickly jump online to disown the woman to protect the country’s reputation, including Malaysian-born comedian and actor, Ronny Chieng, who is part of The Daily Show on Comedy Central.
Many other Malaysians also took to their Twitter to disapprove of the woman’s actions.
We’re glad that she’s not actually Malaysian!
