It's now confirmed that the advertisement was actually blasted by the Ad agency called Innity that our Marketing Dept had earlier engaged. This was inadvertently done dispite being told to avoid certain portals.
I need to reiterate that we had never gone to Malaysiakini ourselves to place any advertisements neither do we hv any budget for it.
It was unintentional and the agency has been told to stop the advertisement blasting immediately. I'll forward the text from my strategic Comms for you to gauge the extent of the damage. My apologies for all the unnecessary trouble from this blunder. Thank You
P/S: The facts is the agency runs our ad onto multiple sites. Those who has clicked to see the pop up ad on malaysiakini the past 1 week is 2,734
