Xiaxue went on to suggest people to “get rid” of themselves.
“If you truly cared about the Earth, there is only one thing to do. Get rid of yourself because guess who is producing CO2 and destroying Mother Earth,” she said.
This isn’t the first time Xiaxue has sparked controversy online. In October 2018, she received threats for dressing up as Malaysia’s former first lady Rosmah Mansor for Halloween.
