“Masyado ninyong ginagawang pang drama serye sa hapon ang paghihinagpis niya. Tigilan niyo!” Beauty Queen turned MMDA Spokesperson Celine Pialago recent Facebook post was slammed by the netizens because of the companionless comment on detained activists and urban poor advocate Reina Mae Nasino related to the burial of Nasino’s 3-month-old daughter baby River at Manila North Cemetery in Manila on October 16, 2020.
Celine Pialago trended on all social media platforms, ranking number 4 on nationwide trend via Twitter with her Facebook post receiving mostly hateful comments from the netizens.
The detained activists and urban poor advocate Reina Mae Nasino who was seen attending her child’s burial who died less than two months after the baby was removed from her care – has raised questions about the treatment of the mothers who are in custody as many voiced their anger at the justice system for failing the child. Even during her son’s burial Nasino wasn’t allowed to removed her cuff to embrace son’s coffin.
While some netizens were mostly in angst of what happened to the burial, MMDA Spokesperson Celine Pialago publicly address the issue and posted on her Facebook page her sentiments on Nasino’s case. “Happy Sunday everyone! Walang kinalaman sa traffic pero sa tingin ko kailangan kong gamitin ang boses ko bilang isang Pilipino sa usapin na ito. “Hindi lahat ng inang nakakulong ay nakapunta sa libing ng kanyang anak. Kaya yung mga sumisimpatya kay Reina Mae Nasino, pag aralan niyo mabuti ang dahilan bakit siya nakulong at kilalanin niyong mabuti kung sino siya sa lipunan. Masyado ninyong ginagawang pang drama serye sa hapon ang paghihinagpis niya. Tigilan niyo!”.
While some were seen siding to the comment of Pialago stating Nasino who’s every move was captured and documented by the media is receiving a special treatment because there are a lot of mothers who was in jail who’s family members died but did not receive such privilege of taking a glimpse of the loved one during the burial where others presumed her to be using her son’s death in manipulating the media to receive sympathy, others can be seen throwing hateful words im disbelief to Pialago statement calling her ignorant and insensitive. Pialago hasn’t release any statement yet response to the public rage.
