Dua Lipa posted a sweet birthday message for her father on Instagram with the caption, "Happy Birthday babi, I wish I was home to give you a big hug and kiss". However after being mocked for calling her father "babi" she quickly changed the caption to "Happy Birthday Dad"
Dua Lipa is Albanian, and the word "babi" in Albanian, means father. Many Malaysians were quick to point out that babi means "Pig" in Malay and mocked her caption in the comments of the post. After noticing Dua changed her caption, other Malaysians apologized and left comments urging her to change back her caption.
So apparently in Albanian ‘babi’ means father but in Malay babi means pig so obviously Malaysians HAD to be disgusting and harass Dua Lipa to the point where she had to change her caption from Happy Birthday Babi to Dad.
