‘Well done… Bravo…Long live Hitler’: Malaysian MP’s bizarre congratulatory tweet to Germany after World Cup victory

A Malaysian MP has been slammed for tweeting ‘Long live Hitler’ after Germany’s victory last night against Brazil.

Kinabatangan MP Datuk Bung Mokhtar Radin posted on the microblogging site via the Twitter handle @MyKinabatangan: “WELL DONE..BRAVO…LONG LIVE HITLER.”

The tweet in the early hours of this morning went viral and internet users have condemned Bung for his reference to the Nazi dictator and demanded he issue an apology.

But in his subsequent tweets to his 21,000 followers, Bung, a self-professed fan of the team, seemed unrepentant.

He re-tweeted the abuse he received – when one user asked how he manged to get elected he replied “coz I’m better than u,” while he told another user to “get lost.”

“I don’t know what’s wrong with people sometimes. Hitler is part of history and the German team fought like how he did,” said Bung…
