Her apology came after a Twitter user listed several reasons why Malaysians are angry and don’t appreciate her breaking into the building, “I appreciate you making a thread about it and I apologise if I offended the feelings of Malaysians.
“That was never my intent,” adding that she did it as it is a form of art and was not interested in any type of conflict.
Just yesterday, Angela shared her “experience” in a lengthy Twitter thread of how she broke into the second-tallest building in the world, the Merdeka 118, a 118-storey tower located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
She said that she fell in love with the building instantly, “it was love at first sight” and even felt a ‘spiritual connection’ with it.
But what actually angered Malaysians is the fact that she dressed up in a hijab as a disguise and to not get caught, “How are you so comfortable coming into someone else’s country, breaking the rules, dressing in a hijab and be proud of it?” one person asked.
Angela was heavily criticized for her actions and was labeled as self-centered and irresponsible for “breaking the law” in the name of ‘art.’
What do you guys think of her apology?
