KUALA LUMPUR - "I don't think what I did was too extreme. It was done to teach him some manners."

That was the frank admission by actor/comedian Sulaiman Yassin, over him slapping film director David Teo during a National Transformation 2050 (TN50) event in front of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak at Seri Perdana, last night, reported Harian Metro.

"I don't think it was extreme as it was to teach him some 'adab' (manners) especially when in front of a leader who is also the host of the event.

"I have no regrets as David's attitude was disrespectful towards the prime minister and (Datuk) Rosyam Nor as the moderator. As a Malaysian, we should by right have manners and respect," said Sulaiman, also known as Mat Over.
