Western media gets slammed for addressing our Agong & African Leaders as “Lesser World Leaders”

Everyone regardless of where they’re from deserves to be respected. When it comes to world leaders, we have to be careful when addressing them. 

HOWEVER, western media recently found themselves under fire for addressing some world leaders as “lesser world leaders“. Most of the figures who were addressed in such a manner were mostly African leaders and also our very own Agong, who is currently on a 6-day trip for the late Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, as well as the reception ceremony of King Charles III.

A news report which was published on September 13 revealed that the President of the United States, Joe Biden was headed to Westminster Abbey for the Queen’s funeral in his armoured vehicle, while the lesser world leaders will have to adapt and make do with a shared bus.

While the leaders who took the shared bus were mostly African leaders and the ruler of Malaysia, Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah. You can watch the clip of the bus below.

“Really? Lesser world leaders?”

The term “lesser world leaders” expectedly did not sit well with some people and in the comment sections, many people made it clear that it is NOT right for certain leaders to be addressed in such a manner.

The Senator of Nigeria took the opportunity to question if the President of his country were being addressed as “lesser world leaders”, as well as other people who also questioned the necessity of the term.

Do you think the term “lesser world leaders” was necessary to address the leaders from specific countries?
