PETALING JAYA: MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai has again clarified that a Twitter account with the handle @MCAPresident is fake and does not belong to him.
His press secretary, Lim Chau Leng, said Liow through his official account @liowtionglai had already highlighted the fake account in April.
â€œThe account is a fake, which is using the name and designation of Datuk Seri Liow.
â€œThe views offered by the person who owns this fake account by no means represent or reflect the MCA presidentâ€™s views,â€ Lim said in a statement on Monday.
He was commenting on Astro Awani which had wrongly taken a tweet from the parody account and attributed it to Liow in a news report on the Low Yat Plaza incident.
â€œIt would be much appreciated if the views of this fake account are not included in Astro Awaniâ€™s news report so that it will not confuse the public.
â€œWe will also report this (account) to the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission as it is a serious offence,â€ Lim added.
Checks on the Astro Awani website showed that the comment from the fake account had been removed from the report, titled â€˜Pergaduhan Low Yat tiada kaitan dengan perkauman.’
