'Malaysiacheatlaser' trends high

[OFF THE POST] Malaysia beat Indonesia, 3-0, on Sunday in Kuala Lumpur before 85,000 fans, and afterwards Indonesians swamped Twitter with complaints about fans at the Bukit Jalil Stadium using laser beams to distract Indonesia's goalie.

"Malaysiacheatlaser” ranked No. 1 on Twitter’s global “Trending Topics” chart. “Curang,” Indonesian for “cheat,” and “Support Garuda,” (the Indonesian national team) also ranked in the top 10 after the match was stopped shortly after halftime when Indonesia’s goalkeeper and another player complained that bright green lights were directed at them from laser pens.

The second leg of the ASEAN Cup final will be played on Wednesday, and Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has gotten into the act, telling Indonesian fans attending the match to support fair play and “not be like Malaysia.”
