The public caning case of two Muslim women who attempted to commit same-sex relations has caused quite an uproar on the internet, garnering attention from both local and international bodies.
In fact, just yesterday (Sept 3), Dirk Blocker, actor of comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine, posted on his Twitter page urging people to boycott Malaysian products as a protest against the public lesbian caning, as reported by Malay Mail.
“Boycott Malaysian products until the government there stops torturing people for living their lives,” he said in his tweet below.

His post has gotten mixed reactions from the public. Some lauded his statement, while others told him to stop poking his nose into Malaysian matters.
Blocker plays the character of Hitchcock in the award-winning sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine, along with other famous actors like Andy Samberg, Stephanie Beatriz and Terry Crews.
Yesterday (Sept 3), two Muslim women, aged 22 and 32, were charged under the Syariah law for attempting same-sex relations. They were caned six times in front of the panel judges and approximately 100 people at the Syariah High Court in Terengganu, and fined RM3,300.
