A few days ago, Tunku Mahkota Johor (TMJ) surprised the people of who were shopping at Aeon Tebrau (April 11) by offering to pay their groceries each RM3,000. Everyone in Malaysia was taken by surprised by this move as TMJ spent a total of RM1 Million on people’s groceries on that day.
The news went viral and everyone was praising TMJ for his actions. Some netizens are not pleased as they said that the money he spent could be used for the people who are really in need for help.
On the very next day, another news on social media took by a storm saying that TMJ once again is going to pay for people’s groceries and this time it is going to be in Econsave Pontian Hypermarket and the AEON Big Kluang supermarket.
About 1,000 shoppers came to the two supermarkets and were left disappointed only to know once they are there that the news they read was fake.
According to The Star, the Econsave Pontian hypermarket was jammed packed in the morning because they were fooled by a Facebook post that they read saying that TMJ is going to pay for their groceries again.
Many of these shoppers started pilling goods into their trolleys. They also ”reserved” their place by placing their trolleys in front of the cashier while waiting for the arrival of TMJ.
After a few hours, they realized that TMJ is not coming and the shoppers abandoned their trolleys at various places in the hypermarket itself.
According to the fake news that was circulating on social media, it says that each person would be entitled to receive RM200 from TMJ to spend.
