In a surprising turn of events, Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah, the former health director general of Malaysia, took to Twitter to deliver a meteorological update that left the internet in stitches. 

The 60-year-old health expert, who you’d expect to be all about health graphs and vaccination statistics, instead delivered a tweet that had us wondering if his grandchild gave him a crash course in internet slang.

Dr. Noor Hisham’s tweet, which read, “A cloudy morning in Putrajaya perhaps with more showers is in prospect later today. Another day another slay,” had social media users doing double-takes. It seems the good doctor might be channeling his inner Gen Z, and the internet couldn’t handle it.

Twitter user @az_hanza questioned, “Did his grandchild teach him this?” It’s a valid question, considering the unexpected usage of “slay” in a weather update. 

But @deantanaka had an equally baffled reaction, asking, “Slayyy? Who’s running the account?” Indeed, the tweet sounded more like something you’d expect from a pop culture influencer than a former health director general.

Not to be outdone, @mightyunisus showed their support with a cheerleader-style comment, “Yasss you go gurl qween boss.” 

Meanwhile, @tyl3rawr chimed in with, “Dang bro didn’t know ure chill like that.” 

It seems Dr. Noor Hisham’s tweet left everyone questioning their perceptions of him. 

Who knew he had this level of chill?

As if the internet’s reaction wasn’t entertaining enough, social media users took things a step further by creating hilarious memes out of Dr. Noor Hisham’s unexpected tweet. 

Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah’s foray into Gen Z internet speak has us all scratching our heads and laughing out loud. Whether he’s secretly moonlighting as a social media star or just letting loose on Twitter, one thing’s for sure: his tweet turned a cloudy day into a hilarious one.
