Immediately after hitting its target, hundreds of users wrote “Your fired” on the wall, directing their messages to the nation’s sixth prime minister.
Since then, the number of “likes” have continued to grow and netizens now appear to be aiming for the one million mark, hoping the swelling number of supporters on the page will attract Najib’s attention.
Some users even suggested that those who clicked “like” on the page would “unlike” Najib’s fan page on Facebook, to show the prime minister his eroding support.
“Tik tok tik tok, the number of likes increasing just like every second. We can see how much we wan him to resign. He should think about wat he done wrong to innocent public in this peaceful demonstration,” said user Iven Leh.
Most of those who clicked “like” on the page are believed to be pro-Bersih 2.0 as the page’s wall was showered with angry comments against how the administration had dealt with Saturday’s rally.
“Najib, I strongly urge you to view the official fan page of Bersih 2.0 and eat every word you’ve spoken. No physical contact? No brutality? Or your definition of brutality is a genocide, so this is too light to be called brutality?,” said user Kenny Chong.
