Luna Maya Through Twitter

Twitter is an incredibly useful social networking tool, particularly when one feels the need to apologise to all one's fans for any sort of indiscretion, perceived or real, that they have committed. Luna Maya is no different. She has used Twitter previously to rant and rail against infotainment journalists, and then to later apologise to them, sort of.

However, the latest apology of sorts is related to the start of Ramadan, the Islamic Holy Month where one fasts from sunrise to sunset. However, although not a Twitterer or Tweeter or Twit, what was tweeted seems to be a bit of a stretch in being construed as an apology for having a mobile phone camera sex video of her plastered all over the internet. What was tweeted was nothing more than hopefully the month is a blessed one for all. The apologise was made much earlier, and on TV.

I have always wondered whether she needed to apologise at all. What she does in her own time is her own business. Now, if she films those activities, the images are stolen, and then released to the public, she has been a victim of a crime. She has nothing to apologise for!

Hopefully, this Ramadan brings her some peace and relief from the judgments of others. There is an old saying that goes something like this:

"People who live in glass houses should not throw stones".

Or, alternatively:

"Let those who are innocent cast the first stone".

It really is time to get over the Peterporn non-scandal and get onto more pressing and important matters. Indonesia depends on it!
