Recently, Johan, a femes local comedian and his actress wife Ozlynn came under fire by netizens after they posted a photo of them paying their last respects at his grandmother’s funeral.

Following the attack on his family on social media, Johan uploaded a photo that contained a heartbreaking message by his mother. According to Johan, his mother pretended to be happy even though she was sad.
Johan’s mother wanted him to tell the netizens who criticized their family that even though she had eaten pork, she is neither stupid nor smart. She is still learning about the religion.
“Islam is not a punishment-oriented religion, but Islam does have its own law,” said his mother.
Johan also said that many of his Chinese family members have Instagram account, which meant they have access to all the comments posted.
He urged the netizens who were spreading hate not to embarrass their own race by posting such disrespectful remarks. He added that his family does not prepare pork dishes during Chinese New Year because they respect the Muslim family members who were there.
