The crown prince of Johor, Tengku Mahkota Johor Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim (TMJ) proved that action speaks louder than words after posting a silent 'revenge' video to roar back at Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz's warning, yesterday.

The video, uploaded at 7pm, saw TMJ relaxing on a patio chair, smiling with his hand gestured in a 'silent' message which seemed to say "bring it on"

The 17-second video was uploaded on the Johor Southern Tigers Facebook and Twitter page a few hours after Nazri warned the crown prince to stay away from politics following Tengku Ismail's criticism on Najib for not attending the #Nothing2Hide forum.

Many social media users deciphered the video as a 'teasing' message towards Nazri.

"A wide smile while watching this video, the government wants to whack Johor royalty? You think we johoreans are (batang pisang)?' wrote Ashhabu Suud in Facebook.

Another user with the name of Shyko Dessert wrote, "TMJ speaks out for the people, to this extent, not only the Johoreans will defend TMJ, the people of Pahang like me will also show support to him!!!"

"MJ is very relaxed. He did not act angrily. He was smiling. He used the coolest way to reply to Nazri’s comment. You’re the best Tunku,” said Nur Farhanah Fadhil.

Earlier, Tourism and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz had criticized Tunku Ismail, saying that royalty should not involve themselves in politics.

"He should keep out of politics because otherwise, he will be subject to the same rule and we will whack him," said Nazri.
