Controversy and criticism
Over four terms in Parliament, Bung Moktar earned a reputation for controversial remarks and inflammatory behaviour. In the first sitting of Parliament after the 2008 election, he called opposition politician Karpal Singh a "big monkey" after Singh called him "big foot". In 2007, he apologised for making sexist remarks in Parliament about opposition politician Fong Po Kuan. On 20 April 2010, he pleaded guilty to committing polygamy by taking a second wife, Malaysian actress Zizie Izette, without the consent of a marriage registrar. He was sentenced to one month imprisonment, but was ultimately released on bail. He made international news for tweeting "Long Live Hitler" after Germany's 7–1 win over Brazil in the semi-final of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
