Rosmah Japan hit by Twitter Tsunami

Rosmah Japan hit by Twitter tsunami

KUALA LUMPUR: Self-styled First Lady Rosmah Mansor has come under fire from the Twitter community after a video of her commenting on the disaster in Japan began making its rounds on the Internet.

In the video aired over Astro Awani, Rosmah had allegedly said that the tragedy was a result of carelessness in implementing environmentally-friendly planning and development in the country.

Nazri said the title was an old practice in international politics, adding:

“In the United Kingdom, Queen Elizabeth is not referred to as First Lady because she is the Queen.

“The First Lady is a salutation to the wife to the Chief Executive, the Prime Minister.

“The same is practised in Japan,” he told Datuk Johari Abdul (PKR – Sungai Petani) who asked if the term “First Lady” referred to Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor or the Raja Pemaisuri Agong.

She was also quoted as stating that the catastrophe should serve as a lesson for Japan and other countries, saying the disaster was a result of rapid development and climate change.
