KUALA LUMPUR – Nor Shafila Khairusalleh, 25, who shot to fame as the woman who “shocked” many with advertisements featuring her image in Shell petrol stations admitted that she was disturbed by men “molesting” her likeness.
According to Nor Shafila in a report by mStar Online, she tries not to be bothered by “cheeky” actions by male customers — even if they kiss or hug her posters — but not when men goes overboard.
“If little things like covering the eyes, pinching the nose or hug I can still accept since it’s just a poster … but if it is towards harassment or sexual, I feel that is too far,” the petrol station supervisor was quoted saying.
“They may just be joking, but I feel ashamed because that is still myself although it is just an image,” she added, referring to the advertisements.
Several photos that have been making the rounds on social media showed men holding her image’s hands, kissing her cheek, and even grabbing her breast.
Nor Shafila also said that her husband admitted he was distressed seeing men “molest” his wife’s image, but remains an understanding partner.
She also does not plan to sue any of the “molesters”.
“But if after this there are others who purposely take photos not to just merely get viral, maybe I will think of something,” she reportedly said.
