Badminton ace Lee Chong Wei has denied that a sex video which has gone viral on social media is his.
Speaking to Sin Chew Daily, the national shuttler said the person in the video does not even look like him.
“He (the person in the video) does not even look like me.
“Why is this happening? Perhaps, some people just have too much free time (to spread such clips),” he added.
Lee also revealed that numerous people had sent the 11-minute video clip to him.
“Do you want me to send (the video) to you?” he joked.
“A lot of people sent (the video) to me. There are all sorts of people out there, I am too lazy to be bothered about them,” he added.
A search for “Lee Chong Wei sex video” on the internet found numerous websites claiming to have the video on their respective sites.
The Sin Chew article came in the wake of news that the shuttler's biopic titled "Lee Chong Wei: Rise of the Legend" would be making its world premiere on March 9 at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil.
Responding to a question, Lee said he would not file a police report on the matter because it is not him in the video.
However, Lee told The Malaysian Insight that he will lodge a police report today to find out the culprit.
He did not rule out the possibility of people sabotaging his movie.
Unrestrained power in your hands
For almost 20 years, Malaysiakini has stayed true to the cause of providing the Malaysian public with the truth. We believe that with unadulterated information, the people will obtain power to make informed decisions.
Decisions which lead to a healthy, robust nation - ours!
Keep the truth alive. Support your robust, independent media. You have the unrestrained power to do so.
Who says it's not our fault?
We aren’t trained to take responsibility.
Everytime we observe an injustice - and choose to keep mum - the prevalence of injustice becomes our fault.
Astute journalism paves the way for the public to be continuously furnished with the fastidious truth. You are continuously empowered to act and to uphold the integrity of the nation.
The Rakyat owns Malaysiakini
We choose to take a risk on independent media because we believe that only through independent reporting can one be NOT beholden to the interest of businesses or organisations. This allows us to really pursue the truth - aggressively.
Independent for 20 years.
The victorious people
In the light of holding the truth to power, Malaysiakini will continue to uphold its mission of providing credible news to its discerning public. Your support for Malaysiakini is always treasured as a testament of innate nationalism. Your victory is our history.
Quietly. Effectively. Says it all. Malaysiakini.
Speaking truth to power
When we embarked on this journey 20 years ago, we knew we would face intimidation, harassment, raids, arrests and perhaps even jail terms. We got into this venture with our eyes wide open.
The main reason we have survived this long - when many others have folded - is partly because we are prudent in our finances. But while we may be tightfisted in our budgeting, we do not hold back when it comes to speaking truth to power and holding power to account. And certainly, this new administration will not stop us from continuing to do so.
