Teenage boy goes viral for confronting angry smoker at Malaysian mamak restaurant
An incident at a mamak restaurant in Malaysia recently went viral after a video of a man yelling at another customer was shared on Twitter.
The man was allegedly told not to smoke at the restaurant, but instead of complying, he confronted the customer – the teenage boy – who asked him to stop smoking.

In the video, the man can be seen angrily pointing his fingers and asking the teen if he was an officer, and then continuing to verbally attack him when he was told he was being rude.
“Are you an officer? This mamak didn’t even dare to stop me.”
“I just asked you to stop smoking here, but why are you being so loud? You’re the one acting rude,” the teenage boy said calmly while sitting down.
“What’s so rude? You don’t try to overdo it!” the smoker replied.
However, the person who filmed the scene, presumable a friend of the boy, pointed out that there was a no-smoking sign on the table where the man was smoking, and praised his friend for standing up to him.
“Aiya, the world we live in ah,” he said in the video.
The incident highlights the importance of holding people accountable for their actions, regardless of their age or status.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health responded to the viral video, saying they have taken note and appreciate the concern.
The video has since garnered over 7,500 retweets and 5.7 million views, with many Malaysians commending the boy for calling out the smoker and remaining calm.
