We all know emotions can get the better of us, and sometimes lead us to portray erratic behaviour. Netizens believe this was the case for a woman seen pulling out the Jalan Sultan Ismail signboard out of the ground with her bare hands.
The clip was shared via TikTok, and even made some local headlines. The woman, clad in black, is also seen stomping on the signboard once it’s removed from the ground.

While the reasoning behind the matter has not been confirmed, netizens assumed that the woman had acted out in a fit of rage or drunken stupor. At the time of writing, the same video has been shared on Facebook and has garnered over 100,000 views.
Inevitably, some users managed to find the humour in it, joking that the woman may have been hurt or dumped by a certain ‘Ismail’ and had damaged the signboard as a way to diss her ex. One netizen also remarked that she “must’ve been stressed that it’s taking so long to decide on a PM.”
However, others noted that such behaviour was unacceptable as road signs are installed using taxpayers’ money and ought to be respected as such.
There has been no official statement from authorities regarding the incident so far.
