Inul Daratista falls foul of the mob.
A group of about forty activists descended on the home of singer and dancer Inul Daratista in Jakarta today demanding that she not appear in any future edition of Playboy magazine. As is typical on these occasions, mob action, even one as small as this, proved successful and Inul Daratista caved in to their demands.
Inul had previously said, in response to questions from journalists, that she would be willing to pose for Playboy. Then, a day after the first edition of the magazine was published, Inul said she had been approached by Playboy management over the possibility of her appearing as the cover girl for a future number.
This is what caused activists from a group called "Garda Bangsa", National Guard, apparently a wing of the National Awakening Party, PKB, to descend on the sexy singer's home in Pondok Indah, south Jakarta.
Wev'e come to see Inul because we feel strongly about this. We only want to remind her not to do whatever she feels like.
said the leader of the mob, Andi Sutomo.
Inul was understandably shocked to see her home surrounded by banner waving busybodies but agreed to meet with a representative. Then the cave in began.
I promise not to appear in Playboy. Thankyou for your support.
Even more pathetically, she earlier said, in her general defence:
What I have done so far I think is right. I dress modestly.
