The unmasked white woman who made a scene at the Suria KLCC mall last week was fined RM3,000 (US$723) yesterday.

The woman, identified as Kerry Harrison, 51, was found guilty of not wearing a mask in public and not using her contact-tracing app in the mall where she was caught on camera arguing with Dior staff preventing her from entering the store. Many Malaysians reacting to the penalty today are not satisfied with the relatively small fee imposed on someone who can afford to shop at the high-end store, where bags can cost upwards of RM 6,000.

“But if Karen is able to afford Dior stuff, RM3,000 is nothing,” @SJMelisa tweeted, while another called the amount “small change.”

Muar MP Syed Saddiq accused the police of “double standards,” citing a previous news report in which a 45-year-old Malaysian was fined more than three times the amount.

“How long do we have to put up with these double standards?” he asked.

The same woman is being investigated for a separate incident in which she allegedly argued with a security guard outside the Bangsar Shopping Center mall for refusing her entry because she was, yet again, not wearing a mask.

In the viral video of her arguing with Dior staff, Harrison was heard calling Malaysia a “free country.”
