Rex Remitio shared an alarming video online about a bulk of Black Nazarene devotees barging into a private property ‘where a catering event was ongoing’ in Castillejos Street, Quiapo.
The scene got out of hand when most of them tried to get food and water while some falling onto the catering tables. The owners weren’t able to do much as the devotees kept on coming.
CNN Philippines shared the said video with a caption,
“Black Nazarene devotees swell into a private property where a catering event was ongoing on Castillejos Street in Quiapo, Manila. Some tried to get food and water, while others almost fell into the catering tables during the commotion. The owners then were forced to push them out of the gate.”
The video has already more than 500,000 views, and 8,000 shares. Watch the video below.
Netizens were angered by this aggressive gesture of the devotees, and here are some of their reactions.
“Deboto ako pero hinde na tama to… eto ying mga skalawag ng deboto. Kung gutom at pagod na umuwe na… hinde na kailangan magpasikat na buong araw n mkiki paligsahan sa paghatak ng tali at pag akyat sa andas… eto yumg mga tao kung bakit magulo na ang prusisyon… mga banal-banalan kuno… umpisahan nyo sa sarile nyo kptid at saka kayo humingi ng tawad sa poong nazareno,” said Jayvee Urcia on Facebook.
“Makadiyos. Pero tignan ninyo ang pinaggagawa. Parang iyong kapit bahay ko na every Sunday nangunguna sa simbahan pero paguwi nangunguna sa tsismisan, awayan at murahan,” saind Romeo Zinca on Facebook.
“This clearly shows that having a religion doesn’t make you a good person.. Seems that having a better education and respect to others is a better choice,” said Andrew De Guzman on Facebook.
“Lumalabas talaga kulay banalbanalan pero mga asal demonyo mahiya kyo ginagamit nyo ang nazareno bka bumaba yan at ihambalos sa mga pagmumukha nyo ang krus! Kakahiya kyo paging mga pari tignan nyo mga kampon nyo mana mana sa inyo,” said Nilo Baes on Facebook.
