A comedian finds herself in a precarious situation after cracking a relatively mild joke about the missing Malaysia Airlines flight, Your Content has learned.
Chia’s comedic remark, made during a performance at a New York City comedy club in April, referred to the ill-fated 2014 flight that remains unaccounted for.
While the joke was not particularly offensive or insensitive to an American audience, the Malaysian government holds a strikingly different opinion.
They have taken measures to call for Chia’s arrest and extradition, aiming to subject her to potential criminal charges.
Although it may sound unbelievable, Malaysian authorities have enlisted Interpol’s assistance in locating and apprehending Chia.
They claim that her joke violated their online content laws, even though she is not a Malaysian citizen.
At first glance, their jurisdiction appears questionable.
In an interview on “TMZ Live,” Chia expressed genuine concern about the possibility of law enforcement apprehending her and forcibly taking her to Malaysia.
What used to be the standard worry for a comedian ensuring the humor of her material—is now overshadowed by the looming fear of capture, especially when performing internationally.
It is a scenario straight out of nightmares and movies.
Chia is seeking appropriate guidance to safeguard her rights and well-being.
Predictably, numerous Americans are rallying in support of her right to freedom of speech, irrespective of whether her remarks were offensive or not, according to TMZ.
