Indonesian First Lady riled by Instagram comment

Indonesia - First Lady Ani Yudhoyono has directed her anger toward one of her Instagram followers for making a comment about her fashion choice.

In one of Ani's Instagram updates, she posted a photo showing her and her family at Lanyae Beach in Pacitan regency, East Java. In the photo, Ani wore traditional Javanese batik. reported that one of Ani's followers had commented by saying that Ani had shifted batik's function from formal dress to casual leisure-time attire.

This comment apparently angered the First Lady, as she replied: "[Glory be to God], your comment is so stupid. Why did you not think that perhaps we were on an official engagement and had just taken a brief moment to enjoy the beach? Come on, have you nothing better to say?"

The target of Ani's temper then responded, asking for her guidance so he could be smarter.

"Yes ma'am, I am probably a stupid Indonesian. I hope you can enlighten me so I can be as smart as you," the Instagram follower said.

This is not the first time an Instagram comment has upset the First Lady.

Previously, Ani was left fuming after a number of Instagram users accused her of editing a photograph of her granddaughter.
