Ruffa Gutierrez and daughters harassed by ‘old men’ in Malaysia theme park
Ruffa Gutierrez was livid when at one time her getaway to Kuala Lumpur with daughters Lorin and Venice turned into a nightmare.
In a now-deleted Instagram story, Gutierrez shared that she and her friend, beauty expert Sharifah Juliana, brought their children to the Sunway Lagoon in Malaysia to enjoy the theme parks.
Gutierrez shared, however, that their kids came back in tears after “groups of old, creepy men” took pictures of them and blew kisses their way while riding on the roller coaster, “literally harassing them.”
When the group of men showed up to harass the children again, Gutierrez and her friend tried to stop them. The group of men, however, tried to attack them.
“We came to @SunwayLagoonMalaysia to have fun with the children & did not realize it’s not safe at all! Shocking!!!”
Gutierrez also took to Twitter to let out her grievances. “Theme parks like @SunwayLagoonMY should not let creepy men inside their establishments!!” Gutierrez wrote, obviously upset. “Theme parks should be a safe place for children and families to enjoy their holiday!”
Sunday Lagoon responded to Gutierrez’s tweet, saying that they regretted the unfortunate incident. “Our management is currently with her [Gutierrez] handling her complaint,” wrote Sunday Lagoon. “We are a family theme park and we ensure that guests safety & wellbeing is our concern.”
Unsatisfactory the event may have been, though, Gutierrez didn’t let it dampen their lovely vacation. Last night, she posted a picture of her with her daughters on Instagram; they are staying at The Ritz-Carlton for the duration of their vacation.
“You mess with them you mess with me,” Gutierrez warned. /ra
