PETALING JAYA: DAP’s “Superman” Hew Kuan Yau has been slammed by netizens for a Facebook post he wrote about China’s claims to the South China Sea.
“南海是中國的！不要因為反共而反華 (The South China Sea belongs to China! Don’t oppose China just because you are anti-communist),” Hew wrote today in a terse Facebook post.
He was immediately castigated by Facebook users who disputed China’s “historical claim” to the economic rights of large swaths of the region.
“You are mad! No such thing as historical claim,” netizen Kok Shin Shan commented.
“You may hate BN but don’t disown your country’s sovereign right! I hope this is NOT DAP’s stand as far as SCS disputes are concerned.”
Netizen Alexandra Wales explained the matter for Hew’s benefit, saying that China’s claim to the South China Sea went against Malaysia’s ownership of part of the area and exclusive economic zone.
