A Facebook user named Melvin Lapaz Wong Jr. called out three bullies on his profile. He stated that there people (name withheld) has been cyberbullying his cousin since 2015.
In the screenshots attached, the three bullies continuously called the victim degrading words such as “pathetic“, “dumb“, “garbage“, “psychotic“, and many others.
The bullies event went as far as telling the victim to kill herself as “everybody would probably be happy if that happens“.
He stated that his cousin, whom he called “Ky” in his post, begged him not to post it but he does not know what to do to help her if they continue on with that kind of situation. He said that he wants to talk to their parents but he doesn’t know who the bullies are.
Wong ended his post with sharing that he had experienced feeling suicidal and did actually attempt to kill himself so he will never allow his cousin to feel the same way just because of three people that just “[wants] to have fun“.
“Ky, kung buhi pa si daddy nimo, ug kabalo siya na ani diay gi buhat sa imuha tung puhi pa siya, kabalo kong dugay na unta ni naundang. (Ky, had your father is still alive and knew about what’s going on with you, back then when he was alive, this would have stopped long ago.)
My cousin begged me not to post this. But I don’t know what else to do to help her kung magpadayun gihapon ning gina buhat nila. Be brave ky, if you won’t, everyone around you will step on you. Let them have a taste of their own medicine. Post this. (My cousin begged me not to post this. But I don’t know what else to do to help her if they still continue this.
Be brave ky, if you won’t, everyone around you will step on you. Let them have a taste of their own medicine. Post this.)
From fb to twitter, isog na jud kaayo ning mga bataa ni. I want to talk to your parents, but I don’t know who you guys are. (From fb to twitter, these kids are fearless. I want to talk to your parents, but I don’t know who you guys are.)
I DON’T CARE kung naa koy mga friends diri sa facebook na kaila or close aning mga bataa ni. Mag ligsanay nalang jud ta kung tistingan jud ko ninyog kalaban because of this post. (I DON’T CARE if I have friends here in facebook who knows or are close to these kids. Let’s just go ahead and bash each other to test me as your enemy becasue of this post.)
Bullying like these should be called out sa social media to spread awareness. Your words can kill a person. Wala ko kaila sa inyuha mga bataa mo pero makabalo unta mo kung unsang epekto sa akong pinsan ang inyuhang gipang sulti. (I don’t know you kids, but you should know the effects of your words to my cousin)
Shout out to these 3 people whose been bullying my cousin since 2015 up to date. These are some of the screen shots na ilahang gipang buhat sa akong pinsan. (These are some of the screen shots that you said to my cousin.)
Wala ko kabalo na dugay na diay ninyo gina tripan akong pinsan, karun ra ko kabalo na naa diay mga isog na tao sa glan na kayang buhaton ni. (I don’t know how long you have been bullying my cousin, I just knew that there are some audacious people in glan that could do this.) Pwes! I will see you and your parents in glan. 3 years of bullying is waaaaaay to far.
Wala mo kabalo kung unsa na ka daghang luha ang gi hilak sa akong pinsan, kung pila ka tulog ang inyuhang gi deprive sa iyaha tungod sa depression and anxiety of being suicidal tungod sa inyuha! (You don’t know how much tears my cousin shed, if how many sleep you have deprived her becaus of the depression and anxiety you have caused her)
I’ve had first had experience of being suicidal and actually attempted to kill myself, but I will never allow my cousin to have the same experience because of these 3 people who just “WANT TO HAVE FUN.”
Dili lang daw sila 3 ang ga bully sa akong pinsan (there are not just 3 people bullying my cousin), according to Mikee Pensader.”
UPDATE: The uploader put the post on private as of this writing to be used for legal purposes. He said, “For legal purposes, I will have to keep my previous posts private. Tomorrow is a holiday, so we will go to the barangay authorities on Wednesday and settle things the right way. God bless us all.”
There are several legal implications that the act of cyberbullying may fall under including the Anti-Bullying Act of 2013, The Revised Penal Code and the Cybercrime Prevention Act, The Civil Code on Damages, and The Labour Code on Just Causes for Termination.
