Critical yet fascinated, people just can’t stop talking about Miyyo’s looks.
Amirul Rizwan Musa, better known as Miyyo Rizone, set tongues wagging when his photographs went viral on Sunday.
Media reports stated that he had splurged RM180,000 on cosmetic surgery procedures overseas to look like a Ken doll (Barbie’s boyfriend) and anime character Squall Leonhart of Final Fantasy.
“I have had enough. Please stop condemning me,” says the 21-year-old beauty entrepreneur from Kelantan.
His face had gone viral previously, which triggered a flurry of hateful comments posted on his Facebook page.
This time around, the magnitude of reaction – mostly harsh criticisms – overwhelmed him.
“I have gained so much attention that I have lost the trust of some customers who condemned me for going under the knife to change my appearance,” the owner of MR Beauty Line Sdn Bhd told the New Straits Times.
He said it was better to appear unfazed by the attention from the media and public but confessed that it was tough to deal with the scrutiny.
“People have come up to me in public and insulted me in my face. I have received this kind of backlash both online and in the streets, in Kelantan and Kuala Lumpur,” he said, adding that he often travelled to the city for business purposes.
“Some of my family members had criticised me, including my siblings, but my parents have accepted me as I am regardless of what I have done to my face.
“Please try to understand my situation and stop dehumanising and cursing me. It is very stressful,” he said.
As to why he chose to reconstruct his facial features so extensively, Miyyo said, “After I contracted chicken pox when I was 16, my skin condition deteriorated and my self-esteem took a plunge.
“I was obsessed with anime characters and I felt ashamed that I looked the way I did back then so I decided to undergo plastic surgery to boost my confidence.”
Even the foreign media has reported on Miyyo.
