Sex bloggers turn up late at MCMC investigation

(The Star) – Sex bloggers Alvin Tan and Vivian Lee turned up at the Malaysia Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) office at Sultan Abdul Samad building this morning.

The couple commonly known as ‘Alvivi’ were supposed to report at the MCMC office for investigations at 10 am but arrived only at 10.45 am.

The couple did not give any comments to the press when they entered the office and were whisked away to the investigations room by the officials.

Last Thursday, the duo uploaded a picture depicting them eating bak kut teh and describing it as fragrant, delicious and appetising.

It was captioned as a “buka puasa” greeting. The picture also had a ‘halal’ logo on it.

This caused an uproar among Malaysians of all races for their insensitivity and they received a warning from MCMC.

They removed their posting after the furore and uploaded a new picture with them eating ketupat, rendang and curry puffs.

However the Facebook page has been removed entirely.

They also issued an apology yesterday in a 1:22 minute video on YouTube in which they apologised for the insensitive posting, claiming it was done in humour.

Meanwhile in parliament Deputy Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Jalani Johari said the couple would be investigated by the relevant enforcement agencies under current laws over their posting. 

He added the laws in question covered those under the Commission’s jurisdiction and that of the Penal Code and Sedition Act.
However, he said that discretion to press charges against the couple was at the hands of the Attorney-General Chambers based on consideration of the evidence.
