- Netizen defends his dad after being accused of sexually harassing a lady on a bus.
- His father was accused of inappropriately touching a woman who in return, physically hurt him and called other men to beat the old man.
- He said that his father was not drunk nor did he touch the lady.
A netizen expressed his disappointment after his father got accused of harassing and touching a woman inside a bus.
In a Facebook post, Xian Mabait uploaded CCTV footage taken inside the bus where the incident took place. It can be seen that his dad entered the bus and got a bit out of balance. After a few seconds, he stumbled again but this time, he ended up closer to the woman.
The lady was visibly shaken and was surprised and angry as she immediately transferred seats. A couple of minutes later, the woman made her way to exit the bus but made sure to physically hurt the old man.
It didn’t end there as a few men also approached the old man and began punching him repeatedly before dragging him off somewhere. A photo of the Xian’s father inside the barangay hall was also uploaded in the post.
According to the netizen, his father has hypertension which makes walking a little dififcult. His father was not drunk at the time of the incident. While Xian mentioned that he also does not approve of any form of harassment against women, he just hopes that people would use the women’s rights properly.
“Nirerespeto ko po ang karapatan ng mga babae na nakakaranas ng pangaabuso. Nobody deserves to be mistreated. Sana lang po ay gamitin ng wasto ang Women’s Rights na ibinibigay ng batas. I understand na natakot ka or di ka komportable na may matandang lalaki na ika ika maglakad na napasubsob sa harap mo karapatan natin lahat magmaasim pero dapat nasa lugar. Pwede ka lumipat ng upuan at magreklamo sa baranggay kung gusto mo pero di mo kailangan manapak at mag start ng eskandalo,” he wrote.
Xian added that his dad is doing well as they already settled with the woman.
“Tska nga pala yung 500 na binigay nyo sa kanya pampa gamot eh ipinambili nlng namin ng McDonald’s para sa Street children na nadaanan namin kanina kaya ko pa naman po sya ipagamot at ipa ospital.”
