KUALA LUMPUR, April 29 — Entertainment personality Wak Doyok has made a public apology to the Johor Prince Tunku Idris after he was caught for ordering a custom ring with the Johor royal crest.
The Tunku Temenggong Johor had uploaded a screenshot of the custom ring on his Instagram along with a caption asking for an explanation from Wak Doyok over the ring, stating that it was against the law.
Wak Doyok whose real name is Mohd Azwan Md Nor, later posted a blank grey image on his Instagram along with a public apology to Tunku Idris as his caption.
“I’ve truly realised that my mistakes were from my own inadequacy to know the royal protocol.”
“I am truly sorry for accidentally crossing the line and I promise not to repeat the same mistakes again,” he said in his post.
Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh. Saya dengan rendah diri merafak Sembah Takzim dan Mohon Ampun kemajlis Duli Yang Maha Mulia Sultan Johor, Duli Yang Maha Mulia Permaisuri Johor dan Duli Yang Amat Mulia Tunku Mahkota Johor serta Yang Amat Mulia Yang Amat Mulia Kerabat Diraja Johor di atas kecuaian dan kelalaian saya. Salam Kemaafan saya panjatkan juga kepada Bangsa Johor yang saya muliakan. Sesungguhnya saya sedar kesilapan saya berpunca dari ketidak arifan saya dalam mengenali batas protokol Diraja. Saya amat menyesali keterlanjuran yang tidak disengajakan ini dan berjanji tidak akan mengulanginya lagi. Saya memohon doa kehadrat Allah SWT agar dilanjutkan usia zaman Duli Yang Maha Mulia Sultan Johor serta Usrah Diraja. @tunku_idris 🙏🏻 Daulat Tuanku 🙏🏻 Wassalaam
Tunku Idris later replied to the post with a simple thumbs up emoji.
