#Malaysian Artistes Association lodges police report over Mediacorp’s Najib skit
KUALA LUMPUR (BERNAMA) – The Malaysian Artistes Association (Seniman) on Friday (April 7) lodged a police report over a recent Mediacorp comedy segment in which the participants poked fun at Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak.
The association’s president, Zed Zaidi, lodged the report at the Dang Wangi District Police headquarters in the Malaysian capital.
Speaking to reporters later, Zed Zaidi said Seniman viewed the incident seriously and hoped that the authority would act sternly to ensure that such an incident would not recur.
He said even though the television station and the show’s celebrity host Najip Ali, who was one of the participants in the segment, had apologised, the four other guests and the host of the programme had yet to do so.
“Seniman will take this issue to the higher authority to ban those involved from entering Malaysia.
“If possible, we will try to reduce inflow of foreign artistes to Malaysia, so that more opportunities will be given to local artistes,” he said.

Rani Kulup lodges report against Najip
KUALA LUMPUR: Singapore’s funny man Najip Ali may have apologised for his remarks on Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak but this means nothing to local activist Abdul Rani Kulup.
“Making jokes out of current issues is rude and we cannot accept Najip’s apology,” said Rani Kulup, president of Martabat Jalinan Muhibbah Malaysia.

Comedian who poked fun at PM no longer a judge on Astro show
PETALING JAYA: Merely hours after issuing an apology for his offensive comments against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, Singaporean comedian Najip Ali is now reportedly taken off the Maharaja Lawak Mega (MLM) series.
Najip was to have been on the judges’ table for the show, which will be aired this Friday over Astro Warna.
Earlier, Wisma Putra said the Malaysian Government viewed the offensive comments and insinuations against Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak seriously and hoped that they would not be repeated.
And, Mediacorp’s chief customer officer Debra Soon, in a joint statement with Najip, admitted that the episode, which aired last Wednesday, did make references to Najib that were in “poor taste and offensive”.
“Channel 5 and the production team behind OK Chope! wish to sincerely apologise to Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak for a segment on last week’s episode.
“We have thus pulled it from repeat telecast with immediate effect,” said Soon.
Pelawak “Biadap” Singapura Takut Menegur Pemimpin Sendiri Tapi Jadikan PM Malaysia,DS Najib Razak Sebagai Bahan Lawak
Perkara itu bermula apabila satu soalan dikemukakan di layar skrin yang memerlukan pelawak-pelawak di rancangan itu menjawab ‘tempat kosong’.
Soalan itu ialah;
“Najib slams _____ for threatening Malaysia’s progress”.
Terjemahan : Najib membidas ____ kerana mengacam kemajuan negara.
Pelawak-pelawak itu kemudiannya menjawab dengan pelbagai jawapan yang seterusnya berbentuk sindiran bagi memerli Perdana Menteri Malaysia, Najib Razak.
“The truth is, Najib slams himself for threatening Malays’s progress”, jawab Rishi Budhrani yang seterusnya membuatkan pelawak-pelawak dan penonton yang berada di rancangan itu tertawa.
Terjemahan : Najib bidas dirinya sendiri kerana mengacam kemajuan negara.
“The most dangerous thing, Beauty And The Beast for threatening Malaysia’s progress”, jawab pelawak Sam See pula.
Terjemahan : Najib bidas filem Beauty And The Beast kerana mengacam pembangunan negara.
Sindiran itu mungkin berpunca dari tindakan Malaysia yang baru-baru ini mengharamkan beberapa babak pro LGBT dalam Beauty And The Beast.
Namun selepas berlagak wira di media-media berita, Malaysia akhirnya menarik semula pengharaman beberapa babak itu dan kandungan penuh filem disiarkan di pawagam-pawagam seluruh Malaysia. Namun label filem tersebut bertukar daripada tontonan umum kepada 18 tahun ke atas kerana mengandungi beberapa babak-babak yang tidak sesuai untuk tontonan kanak-kanak.
Penarikan semula pengharaman beberapa babak filem itu dibuat selepas 9 juri memutuskan untuk tidak mengharamkan gay momen dalam filem itu manakala 8 yang lain bersetuju ianya patut diharamkan.

“Najib slams the bomoh’s head with his own coconut for threatening Malaysia’s progress”, kata Rishi Budhrani pula.
Terjemahan : Najib ketuk kepala bomoh dengan kelapanya kerana mengacam perkembangan negara”.
“Once again the Saudis giving him a money what a surprise”, sindir Sam See sebagai respon kepada kenyataan Vernetta yang memberikan jawapan kepada soalan kuiz itu.
Rancangan penuh Ok Chope itu boleh diikuti disini. Ia disiarkan pada 29 March lepas dan kini penyokong-penyokong Najib mendesak agar satu tindakan keras diambil terhadap pelawak-pelawak Singapura yang disifatkan mereka sebagai biadap dan kurang ajar kerana menyindir Najib Razak dalam program tv itu.
