Posted: 09:13PM

Fahmi Fadzil, a social activist has been forced to say sorry for a tweet falsely claiming that his pregnant friend was ill treated by her magazine employers. Although Fadzil withdrew his accusation shortly after he made the claim, he promptly received a legal letter from the magazine company's lawyers. Despite escaping a hefty fine, Fadzil has been ordered to apologize on Twitter 100 times over a period of three days, which is until June 4. This settlement was reached in an out-of-court agreement with the claimant. Given that Fadzil has 5,066 followers to date, this number is expected to increase exponentially as his case continues to be broadcasted across the web. Fadzil's apology must contain the following: I’ve DEFAMED Blu Inc Media & Female Magazine. My tweets on their HR Policies are untrue. I retract those words & hereby apologize.
