From Watsons Malaysia Facebook Fan Page:

Watsons Malaysia is aware of the post that has been made viral on social media.

A post on 7th June 2017 regarding a video by Watsons talks about the legend of Dayang Senandong. The Legend of Dayang Senandong is a Malay folklore about a lady who was born cursed with black skin but blessed with a beautiful voice. The legend depicts that the king fell in love with Dayang Senandong because of her voice and inner beauty. The curse was lifted after Dayang Senandong gave birth to the king’s child.

We stand firm on the belief that unity and fairness plays an important role, and we respect people from all nationalities. The video was shot to highlight the Legend and its moral values of inner beauty and that true love exist. We are sorry that some of our fans feel offended by the video which was not our intention. We take feedback from our fans seriously.

Your continued support will be greatly appreciated and any feedbacks from you will help in improving our services.

Maaf Zahir dan Batin.
Thank you.
