22 Aug – Zebra Studio co-founder and Executive Producer Saraleana Nattaya Azmi recently revealed that the company has already sent out a letter of demand against a certain YouTuber for what is deemed a slander against its movie, "Gadis Jolobu".

Saraleana, who previously told the media that the company has plans to sue the social media influencer, stated that they are now waiting for the next legal process after receiving a response from the other party's legal rep.

"The YouTuber's accusation clearly slanders the content of the movie Gadis Jolobu, which he alleged have highlighted obscene elements in addition to discrediting Minangkabau culture," she said. "This is a backlash, not constructive criticism."

She added that the Letter of Demand has already been answered on 17 August by the other party.

"That is all we can share right now. The case is in the early stage of court process," she added. "This legal action was taken because his actions aimed to humiliate us."

Saraleana also dismissed the notion that the studio could not accept criticism, saying that she was just trying to defend producers, especially since there are a lot of others like her who had a bad experience with the said YouTuber.

"If what I can do can help the state of the film industry, I will continue to fight," she added.
