Man agrees to tweet his apology 100 times in defamation case

Malaysian social activist Fahmi Fadzil has agreed to apologize on Twitter 100 times after losing a defamation case brought by BluInc Media, a magazine company.
In January, Fadzil tweeted that one of his pregnant friends had been ill treated by her employers at the magazine.

Within a week, BluInc Media had sent a letter accusing Fadzil of defamation.

Settling out of court this week, the activist agreed to apologize 100 times over 72 hours, with the same message:

Ive DEFAMED Blu Inc Media & Female Magazine. My tweets on their HR Policies are untrue. I retract those words & hereby apologize.

Fadzil tweeted his 100th apology this morning.

Probably his points were real or fact unfortunately you'll always lose when going against the media.

So are we back in school here? How ridiculous and immature, does he also have to stand in the corner? LOL
