Malaysian tourism campaign logo sparks debate
The "Visit Malaysia 2020" logo features drawings of Malaysian animals - including an orangutan wrapping an arm around the shoulders of a proboscis monkey - set against garish, multi-coloured fonts with the slogan "Travel. Enjoy. Respect".
Malaysian netizens have widely criticised the logo as dated and an eye-sore.
But Tourism Minister Nazri Abdul Aziz has refused to budge. "I still stick to the same logo, no change," he told AFP.
An online petition has been launched on change.org to demand the tourism ministry to stop using the design. ■
