Hearts were broken as Germany crushed Brazil 7-1 in the World Cup semi-finals on Tuesday. Parliament member Bung Moktar was happy about the Germans winning and decided to tweet about it.

Not surprisingly, Bung received flak from everyone worldwide for his insensitive praise of Hitler. However, he doesn’t seem to think that it’s a big deal.

“I don’t know what’s wrong with people sometimes. Hitler is part of history and the German team fought like how he did, he told The Star Online.

On Twitter, he is refusing to back down too.

While Bung himself doesn’t seem to feel any remorse for the tweet, Lim Guan Eng, Penang’s chief minister, pointed out that Germany would have jailed Bung for violating anti-Nazi laws.

Our Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has also finally spoken regarding the issue via Twitter and urges Bung to swallow his unacceptable remark.

How embarrassing!
