Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) does not play when it comes to their plants. Recently, DBKL called out a local Instagram influencer for damaging shrubbery during an unauthorised photoshoot in the city centre.
According to Malay Mail, popular fashion entrepreneur @Leeyanarahman.co aka Nur Liyana Abdul Rahman posted a clip on her IG which showed one of her models lying down on a shrub near the River of Life (RoL) project.
In the video, you can hear a loud “snap” from the branches when the model laid down. Instead of being concerned, the whole crew then burst into laughter before they quickly pulled her back up on her feet. Wow, such rebels…
The caption wrote, “Are women aces in all areas or are they only good at taking photos? Women are willing to do anything to get beautiful photos, right?”
Beautiful photos? Where? ‘Cause the results looks pretty mediocre to me. Take a look:
The irresponsible act quickly drew the attention of DBKL and the RoL team who reposted Nur Liyana’s video to their social media pages.
“It doesn’t matter who you are or what your intention was, you committed an offence here. Firstly, you destroyed property belonging to the Kuala Lumpur mayor under the vandalism by-laws (WPKL) and secondly, you carried out filming without permission of the mayor.
The reason those flowers and shrubs were planted is for decoration and beautification, not to be destroyed by you,” DBKL wrote on Facebook. Oof! They were pissed, alright.
With that being said, DBKL is planning on taking further action against Nur Liyana and her crew. RoL also told the IG influencer to “be ready” to be compounded for damaging the greenery.
It’s been four days since the DBKL post and there has been no apology or even an acknowledgement from @Leeyanarahman.co. Somebody gave them the ‘play stupid handbook’ kot…
While it is unclear when exactly the photos and videos were taken, some social media users also questioned if it was legal to conduct a photoshoot during the ongoing conditional movement control order (CMCO).
