JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com — Aktris Luna Maya berulah. Lewat situs jejaring Twitter yang ditulis Selasa (15/12/2009), kekasih Ariel “Peterpan” itu melontarkan komentar pedas kepada infotainment.
“Infotemnt derajatnya lebh HINA dr pd PELACUR, PEMBUNUH!!!! may ur soul burn in hell!!…” begitu tulis pemilik akun @lunmay itu.
Tak ayal, komentar Luna menyulut tanggapan keras. Bambangelf, salah satu follower Luna di Twitter-nya, langsung menanggapinya. “Bahasa lu makin norak, bodoh ga terpelajar dan ga mikir panjang…,” tulis Bambangelf menanggapi komentar Luna.
Tak terima dengan komentar tersebut, Luna langsung “menyerang” dengan kata-kata garang. “RT@bambangelf: apa urusan lu ama bahasa gw!!!? Kenal aja gak gw ama lo. knp lo ribet ngurusin gw??….”
Membaca reaksi Luna, Bambang yang bekerja di salah satu media televisi swasta itu malah menertawakan Luna. “hahahahaha… lu makin kelihatan t**l “
Bambang yang dihubungi Kompas.com melalui telepon genggamnya, Rabu (16/12/2009), membenarkan hal itu. Ia hanya menyesalkan ucapan Luna yang terkesan kasar di public domain. Sebagai public figure, Luna seharusnya bisa menjaga citra dirinya. “Dia lupa kalau dia itu dibesarkan oleh media,” katanya.
Tak mau ucapannya jadi blunder, Luna sepertinya memilih aman. Ia langsung menghapus akun Lunmay di situs jejaring sosial itu, menyusul mulai ramainya reaksi atas ucapannya itu. Saat ini jumlah follower Luna Maya mencapai 123.719.
Hingga saat ini, belum diperoleh keterangan dari Luna mengenai komentar yang ditulis di akun Twitter miliknya itu. (EH)
Alesannya krn ini ternyata:
Indonesian Celebrity Luna Maya Shuts Twitter Account After Infotainment Prostitute Slur
An Indonesian celebrity has been threatened with legal action by a journalist’s association and has closed her Twitter account following backlash against a heated message where she labeled infotainment television program crews as being “lower than prostitutes.”
Luna Maya, a television presenter, model and actress, apologized to her Twitter followers before closing her account, under the username lunmay, permanently after the outburst.
In a message posted on Tuesday night, she wrote: “Infotainment are LOWER than PROSTITUTES, MURDERERS!!!!! May your soul burn in hell!!!”
“I’m sorry everyone for the unimportant tweet. I thank those of you who understand (my reasons) and for those who don’t, I apologize,” Luna wrote on her Twitter account on Wednesday.
Luna was believed to have written the harsh Twitter message after being mobbed by crew members of infotainment television shows after she attended the premiere of the film “Sang Perimpi” (“The Dreamer”) at EX Plaza in Central Jakarta on Tuesday night.
Luna, who is in a relationship with singer songwriter Ariel from the band Peterpan, was watching the film with Ariel’s daughter from a previous marriage, Alleia, and his father.
When Luna left the movie theater carrying Alleia, who had fallen asleep during the film, the actress alleged that one of the infotainment crew members bumped Alleia’s head with their camera in the jostle for photographs and interviews. Luna had allegedly already asked the infotainment reporters to wait in the lobby at EX Plaza where she would give an interview.
After the incident, Luna vented her anger on her Twitter account at midnight.
Her comments sparked backlash from her followers.
“Your language is getting more and more trashy, stupid, uneducated and shallow,” replied @bambangelf.
Luna then entered a verbal sparring match with some of her agrieved followers.
“@bambangelf, why do you care about my language!!!? You don’t even know me. Why do you care??” she wrote.
The Indonesian Journalists’ Association (PWI) said they were planning legal action over Luna’s Twitter message.
“This is in the domain of PWI’s infotainment section. We are gathering evidence to prove whether it (Luna Maya’s tweet) is true. If we find a law violation, we will put the case into the hands of the law,” Hans Miller Banurea, the head of infotainment department of the PWI, told Kompas.com.
Hans said Luna’s comment could hurt many people.
“It is her right to vent her emotions but we regret her choice of words to express it. If we read Luna’s statement, it is possible many people will get hurt. For example, the prostitutes could rally against her,” he said.
“She has to be careful in choosing her words, she’s a public fugure. That kind of language shouldn’t have come from a person as beautiful as Luna. There is a saying, “your mouth is your tiger,” he said.
Luna closed her account on Wednesday morning. She had been tweeting since July 18 this year and had 123,952 followers.
