Govt to ban non-Malay models?

Advertisers ordered to drop models with non-Malay faces

The Malaysian modelling and advertising industries are in shock after the government announced it was reviving a ban on the multiracial Asian faces that dominate billboards and magazines.

Information Minister Zainuddin Maidin said yesterday that models with so-called “pan-Asian” features were not representative of Malaysian demographics.

“Using pan-Asian faces means downgrading local faces,” he said. “We have to give priority to models with local looks.”

What is a Malaysian face or local looks? What about mixed Malaysian with a Pan asian face? Malays alone don’t represent Malaysia, so stop discriminating others. It is people like this that will try anything to disunite the people, how stupid can one be?

Today, the pretty models fights back: Malaysian models defend the mixed look
