Messages of sympathy and condolences have been pouring in for former Pinoy Big Brother housemate Jelay Pilones after she posted photos of herself with a dead relative.
In a tweet last January 5, Jelay posted two photos of herself standing beside a coffin, where her relative’s corpse was placed.
“Ma, alam ko kung buhay ka pa nun magpapa-picture ka talaga sa aken 😭 ako nalang pa pic sayo ha! 😭,” she wrote as a caption to her tweet.
“Thank you sa tanang memories ma. We will miss you😭😭😭,” she added.
A netizen commented that it was not Jelay’s mom who died, but an aunt whom she called “Ma.”
Based on her caption, it seemed Jelay just wanted to make her aunt’s desire to have selfies with her to happen.
Jelay’s post has now gone viral and a lot of netizens offered their condolences.
Here’s what they say:
“Condolence Bb. Jelay 🙏🏼 Praying for your family.”
“Ate Jelay 🥺💔 condolence stay strong. 💪”
