Atta Halilintar Made Headlines with His New Zealand Shooting Post
Who doesn’t know Atta Halilintar, the man whose Youtube channel has risen to become the #1 highest subscribers in ASEAN?
Many people know his history even back to his 10 other siblings. His Youtube is full of interviews with many high profile artists, even the President Jokowi himself. Yet this time Atta made some headlines due to his post regarding the tragic and inhumane shooting of two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand with 49 casualties and many injured.
Many damned the action as one of the most cruel action someone can do. However Atta, on his Instagram post, has said many things that people consider as unnecessary, even ‘not a smart act’ for someone as influential as him. The picture in the post showed Atta holding a gun, with focus mainly on the gun. Instead of getting the public’s support from his post, he got harsh comments instead for his insensitivity.
Atta had since deleted the post as his response to the outrage. Have you seen it? What do you think about his comment?
