A popular Malaysian tutor who uses TikTok to teach mathematics to his students, known as Sir Uzairi, has resigned after telling his students to call him “daddy”.

Uzairi Mohd Taib was employed with an online tuition agency, MC Plus.

In the video, he said: “Daddy and abah are different. I am your ‘daddy’, but your ‘abah ‘is the father who has been with you since you were born,” he said in the video.

For the uninitiated, the term “daddy” is used by younger girls to address older men that they might have a sexual interest or sexual relations.

Divided opinions

The video received a lot of backlash from netizens as they believed it could be considered as sexual grooming.

Some argued that there is no way to differentiate sexual and non-sexual terms.

Others referred to it as “creepy and disgusting”.

However, some of Uzairi’s students came forward in support of him.

They said that people are able to differentiate sexual and non-sexual contexts.

Uzairi supporters blamed those reading the term in a sexualised manner to have a “dirty mind.”

Uzairi apologised

Following the incident, on Dec. 9, Uzairi took to his personal Twitter account to apologise for the remark that he made.

The online tuition agency said that an investigation is currently underway and that their team takes the issue seriously.

The agency added that they will be taking appropriate action very soon.

“Rest assured, we always put the well-being of our students 1st,” they said.
