“What right does one have to criticise plus-size people and telling them not to attend fashion shows? I dare her to walk up to an oversize person and tell it to their face that they are fat and should not attend shows.”
Datuk Tom Abang Saufi followed, sharing an Instagram post that shows how size is not a problem in the audience.
Adila Long called out Kak Zai in an Instagram story.
“I don’t understand why people still kiss your ass and think you’re a guru.”
But in a recent post on Instagram, Kak Zai apologized and clarified that she meant to take a jab at manspreading, or the act of a man spreading his legs so wide apart while seated.
“It wasn’t my intention to body shame anyone — family, friends or followers. But my Facebook status was about manspreading, which I experienced recently. During as my career as chief stylist for almost three decades, I would never have been able to carry out my duties if I was judgmental. So if I have offended any family, friends or followers, I sincerely apologise from the bottom of my heart.”
