Sharifah Amani’s Hilarious Response To Comment About Body Shaming Husbands Has Malaysians In Stitches
If there are two things to note about Sharifah Amani is that she is: a) devoted to her family and b) has absolutely no time for nonsense. The 34-year-old with an impressive repertoire of being an actress, director, Malaysian storyteller, activist and all-round amazingly passionate human being has always been vocal about the issues she cares about – be it the condition of the Malaysian film industry – and sometimes finds herself rubbing people the wrong way as a result. However, this time around, she’s got Malaysians rooting for her as she responds to a rather inappropriate comment on a picture she posted on her Instagram account.
In accordance with the birthday of her younger sister, Sharifah Aleya (1/4th of the Sharifah sisters), Sharifah Amani posted a sweet picture with her sibling. The image, a simple one of her leaning on her sister, was accompanied by the beautiful caption –
You take care of us so well sampai kekadang lupa nak take care of yourself. It’s crazy to watch you grow up as the little kid that followed me everywhere, dari sanggup naik bukit on rollerblades to becoming my producer and manager. It’s was accurate to call you our Pride because that’s how you makes us feel everyday, proud.”

Happy birthday Phoenix. Thank you for allowing your loved ones to hang on you. You take care of us so well sampai kekadang lupa nak take care of yourself. It’s crazy to watch you grow up as the little kid that followed me everywhere, dari sanggup naik bukit on rollerblades to becoming my producer and manager. Gila actually adventures kita. Bila bukak balik gambar time shooting my short films ada je awak. Kejap jadi assistant, kejap jadi art department, kejap jadi focus puller, kejap jadi producer. Sebelum orang lain percaya kebolehan Ani, awak dah percaya dulu. 😭😍 Dia kumpul ilmu diam diam. Lepas tu she tells her own stories. Playwright, actor, director, producer. It’s was accurate to call you our Pride because that’s how you makes us feel everyday, proud. Only the best doas for you my love. Ani will be there for you come what may. InsyaAllah. We love you sooooo much Sha. I hope we get to make you proud too. 😘❤️🥰
However, it was one comment on the picture and subsequently, Amani’s response that got the most attention. The comment in question? An ad targeted to women who “are looking for ways to solve problems so that their husbands would love them more”.
The comment reads,
Your husband says your body is not as it used to be before marriage? Are your assets getting flabbier? Is your Miss V [vagina] even looser after giving birth? Sister, follow me and you will find ways to solve your problems so that your husband will love you more. Don’t believe me? Follow me first,”
Catching the comment on her picture, Sharifah Amani calls out the commenter but instead of lashing out at her for posting the ad, she chastises husbands who say such things to their wives.
Just throw away that kind of garbage husband. For him to comment on you who is working hard to look for money to raise your children while he sits at home and collects fat? Fling that trash of a man out. He’s only making life difficult.”
Needless to say, netizens who spotted the ‘Hawa’ director’s comments had a field day! Many of whom were supporting Amani’s stance and applauding her for her witty (and on point!) response.
Here’s to more quality content (both in film and in day to day jokes) from the talented individual!
