Sex bloggers apologise, calling offensive greeting their "stupidest stunt"

PETALING JAYA - Sex bloggers Alvin Tan and Vivian Lee have issued an apology over their offensive Selamat Berbuka Puasa 'greeting', calling it their "stupidest stunt".

In a 1:22 minute video uploaded on their youtube channel SexcussionsAlvivi, the couple apologised for the insensitive posting, saying it was done in humour.

"We are recording this video to ask for forgiveness for offending Muslims in this holy month of Ramadan," said Tan in the video.

"We sincerely regret offending religious beliefs and sensitivites in multi-cultural Malaysia," he added, speaking in Malay.

He said that they had no intent to insult or ridicule the Muslim faith, nor incite racial conflict.

He ended the video by saying "selamat Aidilfitri dan maaf zahir batin (happy Aidilfitri and apologies for all discretions)".

Though present, Lee did not speak during the video.

In a 9.10pm post on their twitter @AlviviSwingers, the couple tweeted "I think this "halal pork for Ramadhan" stunt was the stupidest one we ever pulled. Even I had to admit it. We, were, wrong."

On Thursday, the duo uploaded a picture earlier this week depicting them eating bak kut teh and describing it as 'wangi, enak, menyelerakan' (fragrant, delicious, appetising).

The picture also had a 'halal' logo in the corner.

They were panned online for their insensitivity and receiving a warning from the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission.

They removed their offensive posting shortly after, replacing it with a picture of them eating ketupat, rendang and curry puffs.

However, their Facebook page had since been removed entirely.

According to their twitter, Facebook administrators had done so due to "strong negative feedback".
