Videos and images of the dark smoke rising over the mall quickly spread online and drew some hilarious speculations.
Some said maybe a shopper tried to burn all the receipts so the husband never finds out or it was another Karen throwing a fit by setting a fire in the mall.
A netizen said it was probably caused by an angry shopper who didn’t get to buy the MoonSwatch watch.
Katanya ada bukti resit nak dihapuskan supaya suami tak jumpa.
