Just yesterday (8 Jan), Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) suspended an employee for insulting the royal institution on social media. Addressing the incident in a statement on Twitter, TNB said,

“The employee that made the sensitive comment on social media has been suspended with immediate effect while investigations are still being carried out.”

“The comment is a reflection of the employee’s personal opinions and is in no way related or in line with TNB’s principles. We apologise for this incident.”

According to Malay Mail, the employee and the owner of the social media account in question, believed to be her husband’s, posted comments insulting the monarchy and the resignation of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
