After the alleged gunman in the Christchurch shootings broadcasted the horrific event on Facebook Live, half of the nationally representative sample of 1,080 Malaysian respondents surveyed by market research company Vase.ai and local broadcaster Astro Awani, said social media sites should stop offering live streaming.
The results of the survey were published on March 27.
In total, 91 per cent of those polled (981 respondents) were aware of the shootings in the mosque. Of this group, 65 per cent (644 respondents) admitted they had watched the video, with a further 83 per cent (536 respondents) saying they found it offensive.
