Lufya Omar on anti-vaccine controversy: The damage has been done!

·2-min read

2 Jun – Although she has already forgiven TV presenter Fara Hanim Razak for her previous false allegation against her, actress Lufya Omar stated that the damage has already been done.

The actress, who spoke to the media following Fara's recent apology after accusing her and Rita Rudaini of being anti-vaccine, stated, "I know she has uploaded her apology on Instagram on Sunday. All I can say is that I forgive her on the condition that she doesn't repeat her mistake towards me or other people."

Stressing that she used to think of Fara as a sister, Lufya added that it will be hard for her to have the same relationship as before because of what had happened.

"When she made that accusation, I was honestly shocked. It really plagued me and gave me a headache as people kept texting and calling me to ask about it. I hope that she will be more careful in speaking or sharing something on social media," she said.

Lufya also stressed that neither she nor Rita have ever expressed any protest against vaccination, adding that she has also registered for COVID vaccination.

The issue sparked last week, when Fara went online and tweeted, "Guess which neighbours of mine who are anti-vaccine? Two actresses whose name start with RR and LL, who keep spreading misinformation about boiling cloves to prevent COVID and saying COVID was part of the Iluminati."

The post angered Rita, who took to social media to blast the TV host, writing, "I never said I was against vaccination. If I choose to boil grass or even excrement, that's my choice... This is not the kind of neighbour anybody needed. Talking behind your back while being oh-so sweet in front of you... I'm sure you'll get more followers after this."

Fara had since posted a long apology on social media, sharing the two text messages she sent to both Lufya and Rita to express her regrets.
