So who's telanjang now, Chef Wan?

As the search and rescue operations for the missing MH370 aircraft enters its 14th day today where it is now focused in the southern Indian Ocean, southwest of Perth, this bit of stupidity really pisses the Spanker off:

Local celebrity Datuk Chef Wan early today ridiculed the discovery of two objects by Australia which could be related to missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 on his Instagram account @chefwan58.

In his post, Chef Wan posed with an object which he claimed was part of the missing MH370 aircraft which disappeared on March 8.

Then in an apparent attempt at a joke, Chef Wan said the object was actually part of a toilet door from a house on the beach in Morib.

His distasteful (pun intended) post  has since been deleted after receiving 701 comments and much criticism from his Instagram followers.

Chef Wan's distasteful "joke" comes at a time when tensions are running high among family members of the 239 passengers and crew on the missing plane.

Compare this with Flight Steward Mohd Hazrin Mohamed Hasnan, who was on board MH370 and who happily took a picture with Chef Wan on an earlier flight to Dubai. Hazrin later posted his picture with a joke about nasi lemak: "@chefwan58 jom makan nasi lemak.. heheheh.. anyways its being a pleasure serving u onboard flight to dxb. Such a humble person."

Those who follow local news will know the media ruckus Chef Wan kicked up after being served Nasi Lemak without anchovies and fried peanuts, calling it "Nasi Lemak Telanjang" (Naked Nasi Lemak).

Upon being informed of Mohd Hazrin posting the picture with him and his current missing status, Chef Wan posted on 8th March "I discovered that he was on board the MAS flight to Beijing. Over the years he has attended to me on several flight abroad and we spoke and laughed about many things. A very sad and tragic news indeed".
Now Chef Wan is highly regarded among his peers locally and around the world. He is also a Tourism Ambassador and a Malaysian Culinary Ambassador. 

Yet 2 weeks later he does an about turn and insults Hazrin, his family and indeed all Malaysians with a tasteless and insensitive stunt like that.

So who's telanjang now, Chef?

That's what happens when someone is so full of himself. Attention seeker too on account of his "telanjang" outburst.

I promise never to follow any of his programmes again if he does not nake a public apology for this stupid act of his.
