Faux pas ... Malaysia's Defense Minister and acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Husse
The public face of the hunt for MH370 has made another public relations faux pas, agreeing with a tweet that described the tragedy as a “blessing in disguise”.
Kuala Lumpur-based journalist Ismail Amsyar tweeted: “MH370 is a blessing in disguise for all of us. I understand now the beauty of unity, the sweetness of having each other.”
Six minutes later Malaysia’s Defence and Acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein shocked followers when he replied: “Right u are:)”
Followers were quick to question the appropriateness of the tweet, with many suggesting it was insulting to the families of MH370 passengers.
Amsyar has this morning apologised profusely “from the bottom of his heart” for his tweets. He also received an online death threat.

Hishammuddin, a prolific tweeter, has since deleted the comment from Twitter.
