Singapore: April Fool’s Joke is trashed!




MediaCorp’s April Fool’s ‘cheating husband prank’ slammed

An elaborate tongue-in-cheek prank which saw a Malay “makcik” pretending to catch her cheating husband on a public bus has angered several netizens, who accused the actors of portraying Muslims in a bad light.

The videos of the incident, which many thought was genuine, saw a Malay auntie confronting her husband with his mistress in tow. It quickly went viral after being uploaded on YouTube on 29 and 30 March, and was viewed over 200,000 times in total.

But after the stunt, which was crafted and acted by the team behind popular Channel 5 comedy show “The Noose”, was revealed to be an April Fool’s Day joke on Mediacorp Channel 5’s Facebook page, several readers were not amused.

In Malay, Facebook user Midi Yusope said that the prank had humiliated the Malay community.

According to Maryam Nagisa, the joke had tarnished the reputation of Muslims and that the two Muslim actors involved in it had made a laughing stock out of themselves.


Now, watch the video!
