Police today detained rap singer Namewee to help in the investigations into his video clip which touched on the sensitivities of the multi-racial Malaysian society.
The post did not mention the date of Namewee's arrest or details of the police investigations.
Earlier Thursday, Wee posted a picture on Facebook of himself at the federal police headquarters as he was wanted by police for questioning.
"I am not afraid as I believe there is justice in Malaysia", he said.
The administrator of his Facebook page posted a statement yesterday saying that the controversial rapper had been officially remanded.
Namewee is being investigated under Section 298 of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 for his latest video.
Inspector-General of Police Mohamad Fuzi Harun later released a statement saying that the 34-year-old, whose real name is Wee Meng Chee, had been arrested in relation to a music video that contained elements that "insulted religion" and could "harm national unity and racial harmony".
Police said at the weekend a probe had been launched into the artist who is from the country's ethnic Chinese minority for hurting religious feelings and "transmitting offensive communications".
In the music video, all the performers were seen wearing dog masks and some mimicked certain sexual positions.
Rapper Namewee has been arrested by the police to facilitate investigation into his "Like a Dog" video.
In the video, the Malaysian dogs sing "mari-mari, wang-wang" ("Come, come, money, money") but in Mandarin, "wang" can mean prosperity or luck.
In a YouTube video, the rapper denied having insulted Islam and said that the domed building visible in the background was the prime minister's office, not a mosque. In 2016, he was detained for several days for allegedly insulting Islam over a video partly filmed inside a mosque. "Look properly", he said.
