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:

Iíve 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.
