Faking on Facebook

“I condemn the person or persons behind these malicious acts to impute damage on my integrity and I hope that you can dig deep into your hearts and minds to truly find the truth in all these,” she added.

Bermejo was also interviewed by the Philippine news channel ABS-CBN, in which she insisted that she was innocent.

“Pero naman kung ako siguro ang nakakita sa post na yun, mag iisip naman ako na, bakit naman niya gagawin iyan. Bakit niya ilalagay ang picture niya? Bakit niya ilalagay ang real identity niya? Parang bine-bait niya sarili niya na, ‘Ok, kill me’,” she said. (If I saw that post, I’m going to think “Why would she do that? Why would she put her picture with it? Why would she put her real identity? It’s as if she’s asking for it: Ok kill me.)

“Pero after this, itong post na ito, unang-unang ginawa ko kagabi umalis ako sa bahay ko. Doon ako natulog sa bahay ng mga kapatid ko kasi natatakot ako,” she said. (After the posting, the first thing I did was to leave my house. I slept at my siblings’ house because I’m scared.)

According to some of the comments on Facebook, Bermejo may also have lost her job because of the whole controversy. Bermejo said that she has now taken legal steps to address the whole problem.

    Hello everyone,

    It’s high time to direct the same effort you put into your well crafted rants regarding her very uncalled for comment in this unfortunate situation.

    Let us move on, let us progress into becoming what it should really have been right from the start–a relief organization for Ondoy victims.

    I kindly ask everyone to turn off the hate and channel it into helping those who weren’t so lucky to have voiced out their feelings in the matter.

    As Filipinos, magtulungan tayo. We can make a difference!

    if you can’t donate goods or cash, information is always welcome such as areas still not yet served or danger areas with people to rescue. Oh and disseminating the information. Thanks to everyone and God Bless!

    Make it better place to live a good life….there’s too much of rubbish in manila, single mothers with 5-7 kids, over-emphasis on the Catholicism, (Every nation/community has its problems, but yours is just way too much)

    Wake up the Miriams and ‘Peelipeenas’ (pardon me) of this world… And remember, till the time youth of a nation finds it ‘better’worthwhile to live/spend their youthful/productive years in another country, your own country cannot make significant “prosperity-leaps”. Any nation whose major source of economy is ‘repatriation’ is on a dangerous path, more so in future decades when Expats (except perhaps Gulf…) will tend to save and spend in the country of residence to take care of families and to fight rising costs of living (look at USA )

    And see how China and India are progressing with a huge no. of theor US/western trained professionals coming back to them to start companies, work for MNCs and I hope one day Phillipines (and others) realize this…Till then keep the Smile on ur face,,,,
