Several STOMPers have expressed anger over this insensitive comment made on Twitter by a nurse. She had called a family 'orang kaya baru' or 'newly rich' after they asked for donations to fund their baby's overseas operation, only to have her pass away this morning.
Baby Nur had been born with a rare heart condition, and her family had requested for donations for her to undergo a heart transplant overseas. She died suddenly this morning however, prompting the woman's remark about the family becoming 'orang kaya baru', a Malay term meaning 'newly rich people'.
STOMPers TwitterBoy, Zarabella, Dolly, Fiqa, Lydia, Atika, Shahaza, Xrax and Lela all sent in comments regarding her tweet.
"This girl has been trending on Twitter because of her heartless comment about the Lil Nur death.
"She says, 'congrats to her parents for being the new org kaya baru'. That means she is talking at Lil Nur's parents becoming a new wealthy couple because many people donated to them for Lil Nur's heart transplant.
"Lil Nur parents must be devastated at the news of their daughter's death and this girl can still say these kinds of things about her."
"Shame on you girl.
"For posting this on your tweet. You have no brain."
"Online, many have commented on her post about how rude she is.
"We heard about little Nur has passed away.
"The sad part is that someone would have the guts to say something like this online.
"I heard she worked as a nurse. We shall make a report to the authorities for this post."
"Little Nur passed away this morning and this lady here this is what she tweeted."
"Look at what she said about little Nur.
"She mentioned about how Nur's parents are going to be the new rich people, but come on, I'm sure Nur's parents will donate it back to charity.
"I'm just so angry that she can say 'i told you so.'
"What! Ahh I'm just so angry i don't know what else to say. I just want her to apologise!"
Atika also commented:
"Little Nur just left this world and here's a girl posting this on Twitter.
"Why is she so heartless?!
"How would she feel if this had happened to her family member?
"Come on , that strong little girl just passed away."
"This comment was tagged by a lot of people in facebook with regards to this inhuman creature.
"Her comments about the parents of Lil Nur, who passed away this morning, were embarrassing and uncivilised.
"This uncivilised woman is known to be working at SGH (Singapore General Hospital) as a nurse.
"A lot of people from facebook tried to trace her account in Twitter but it seems that her account is no longer active.
"She has brought disgrace to our Malay community. We demand that she comes forward & apologise publicly, especially to Lil Nur's parents for saying things like that about their loss.
"We really do hope this matter won't be taken lightly."
"It's very sad that Lil Nur has left us today.
"We knew Lil Nur as the strong girl who is battling hard with her heart failure.
"I would like to ask people out there to stop making the situation any worst for Nur's family.
"The money was donated out of goodwill.
"Posting things like 'their parents will now be the new rich people in Singapore' or "I told u so, she wouldn't survive' isn't helping the family come to terms with the loss.
"You have not experiences it, therefore u won't feel the hurt.
"Let us all pray for the strong little girl."
Lastly, Lela wrote:
"Hi! I am Lela.
"Nur passed away this morning and I find this twitter post very disturbing.
"Nur had a rare heart condition and needed funds to get a heart transplant. There were a lot of organizations helping out to help her to get the money to have the operation done overseas.
"I believe everyone is entitled to their own opinion but I find this post unacceptable.
"She deleted it but I managed to get hold of it before she deleted it.
"I heard this girl is working as a nurse and she should be mindful of what she says.
"Please have some RESPECT for other people."
