Pia Kim, Matapang na sinagot si Vice Ganda matapos siyang hanapin nito dahil sa post niya tungkol sa pagmakatay ni Franco Hernandez


Netizens flooded social media to express their grief and sentiments following the untimely death of Hashtags member Franco Hernandez. However, one netizen in particular, Pia Kim, got the attention of TV host Vice Ganda and a lot of other bashers when she posted on her Twitter account: “Bat si Franco pa yung namatay di nalang si Jon Lucas. #RIPFrancoHernandez.”

Enraged, Vice Ganda wrote a series of tweets directed at Kim:

“Sa gitna ng pagluluksa namin ngayon di ko papayagang may lumapastangan sa mga taong malapit sakin. Napakawalang hiya mong hayup ka!”

“Hintayin mong makabalik ako sa Pilipinas at ipapahanap kitang demonyo ka! Di mo alam kung gaano kalungkot ang pinagdadaanan naming ngayon!”

“Gusto kitang makita sa personal. Gusto kong sabihin mo sa akin yan ng harapan. Gusto kitang paglaanan ng oras. Wag mga kaibigan ko. Wag ngayon.”



Following the backlash, Kim has since deleted the controversial tweet, but that did not stop fans of both Vice Ganda and the group Hashtags from flooding her social media accounts with bashing and name-calling, with some of them even wishing her the same thing she wished for Lucas.

On November 12, Kim finally decided to face the issue head-on and released a statement on Facebook directed not only to her bashers but to Vice Ganda as well:



“Goodevening, sa lahat ng taong nagsasalita sakin ng masasama, oo alam ko may mali ako sa tweet ko, but that does not define me di nyo naman ako kilala dahil lang sa tweet na yun, then thank you sa mga taong naniwala sakin at killa kung sino talaga ko, and lastly sa mga taong patuloy na hinusgahan ako at hinuhusgahan padin ako. Sana bago nyo ko pinagsalitaan ng foul and offensive words inisipi nyo muna kung anong ginawa ko sa inyo para pagsalitaan ang family and friends ko ng ganun. Nagagalit ba kayo dahil tinweet ko yun ? Then whats with the saying na “this is a free country we can do what we want”? And thats only my opinion kung ikinagagalit nyo yun then I cant deal with it salamat sa inyo. And if I harmed Vice and Jon sa tweet ko well opinyon ko lang yung I didnt expect na they will notice me at wala din po akong balak magpasikat sa kahit kanino,sa isang tweet lang nasabihan nyo nako ng HAYOP AT DEMONYO na. MAS MASAHOL PAKO SA HAYOP. Who are you to judge me ?Lesson Learned na pag ka simpleng tao ka lang di ka pwede magsalita against sa mga taong iniidolo ng mga taong nasa paligid mo. Thank you. At sa mga Gumagawa po ng dummy account and pages na ginagamit yung information ko HINDI PO AKO YUN.”






Although Kim might have indeed been a victim of cyberbullying as she portrays herself to be in her statement, it does not take away from the fact that her insensitive tweet offended a lot of people. To wish someone else to die in the place of another is downright malicious no matter what the circumstances may be.




If one was to follow Kim’s logic in defending her tweet, then she should not have been affected at all by all the bashing and name-calling she has received because as she said, “This is a free country we can do what we want.” For all she knows, these people might just be expressing their opinions just like she was.

What do you think of Pia Kim’s statements? Comment away!
