Stupidity knows no bounds, especially when it comes to social media.

One example is a group of teens who were recently nabbed by the police for vandalising a public property for the sake of getting likes on TikTok.

According to Kluang police chief ACP Low Hang Seng, the eight teenagers are aged between 16 and 19, with three of them still schooling.

"Police on Tuesday came across a viral 55-second video uploaded on Facebook, showing a group of teenagers on motorcycles pouring detergent into a decorative public pool outside a shopping mall in Kluang.

"The incident is believed to have happened last Sunday at 5.30am, and police managed to track down the suspects based on the CCTV footage of the incident," he told Malay tabloid daily Harian Metro.

None of the boys tested positive for drugs, and all of them are being probed for vandalizing public property.

Low sternly warned against performing vandalisme or damaging public property, as it could land the doer under trouble.

It is worth noting that the management of the shopping centre in question, Kluang Parade, had earlier taken to social media to urge the suspects to turn themselves in before the law catches up on them.
