Farah Ann Faces Sexist Comments From Malaysians For Her Tokyo Olympics Leotard

Even after getting called out by Datuk Lee Chong Wei for dissing our badminton mixed doubles players, Malaysians are still not done giving their 2 cents about the Olympic athletes who are representing our country in the games. This time, people decided to attack Malaysian gymnast, Farah Ann Abdul Hadi for wearing leotards that are deemed too “revealing”.

These nasty comments were brought to light when popular news anchor, Tehmina Kaoosji screenshotted the comments from a Facebook post of Team Malaysia, Astro Arena, and VOICE. She wrote, “The moral policing of female bodies is a festering disease, what more that of professional athletes. Just another example of how an utter lack of CSE in our schools ENSURES we have adults sexualising an athletic uniform. Siapa yang buat malu, eh? SMH.”

The Facebook post had nothing to do with Farah Ann’s outfit, rather it was focusing on her achievements, while Malaysians decided to ridicule her outfit. A Malaysian Facebook User, Razman Bahari left a comment, “Even Allah does not allow you to succeed because gymnastics is not an appropriate sport for Muslims.”, while another user wrote “I wonder how she felt dressed like that? I feel embarrassed just by looking.”

Little did you know, Farah Ann actually designed her tiger-inspired leotard with crystals shaped like a tiger on the right side of the outfit with the Malaysian team’s colours. Let us stop moral policing our athletes’ attires and focus on fully supporting them!
