KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysia Airlines Flight Attendants Association (MAFAA) wants a written apology from Afdlin Shauki, one of the executive producers of the comedy, Buli Balik.
The association members feel the reference to stewardesses in the movie as toilet cleaners is demeaning.
“Afdlin must make a written apology to us. Many stewardesses have expressed their unhappiness after reading the story in The Malay Mail yesterday,” said MAFAA secretary-general, Ismail Nasaruddin A.W. Maxwell, in reaction to Afdlin’s comments that no malice was intended towards stewardesses in Buli Balik.
He he he.. Aplah MAFAA ni. Orang buat joke pun susah. Tak boleh nak lawak langsung. Kalau tak silap aku dialog Sharifah Shahirah tu macam ni "Orang ni, kalau sebutnya stewardess nak mengoratlah dan tulah... saya cuci toilet juga diatas tu". Kalau tak silaplah.. aku kurang clear dia cakap. Biasalah, kalau Sharifah Shahirah bercakap..pot pet pot pet.. macam keretapi laju dapat enjin roket. He he he..
Cakap macam tu pun terasa. Dialog dalam filem pulak tu. Cerita lawak pulak. Lainlah kalau buat press statement macam MAFAA tu. Sepatutnya Persatuan Pencuci Toilet Semalaysia (PERSPENTOILS) tuntut MAFAA minta maaf kat diorang pasal memandang hina pencuci toilet.
Afdlin Shauki membebel
One quick question.
Are the cabin crew association so insecure about their own profession that they have to justify that they are at par with airline pilots? in my mind they have a great profession. They get to travel, meet many people and at the same time. I too had contemplated once in my life about becoming a steward but alas my calling in the arts was stronger and they had no steward baju that could fit my bulbous size.
So, I am wondering now... why is there such a Hoo ha about that Syarifah Shahira scene on BULI BALIK.
Tak apalah Afdlin. Kalau rasa terpaksa minta maaf, kau minta maaf je. Lain kali kau buat cerita lawak pasal stewardess kaw kaw punya.. Aku ada idea ni.. hehehe
