“At no point has it ever been easy being a figure of hope, but for the most part, I was able to manage and wouldn’t mind sharing everything that I’d been through – whether its national television or to a group of friends. ‘Coz at the back of my mind, I know I was helping others by sharing my story,” Wil related in his video, on how being this figure to look up to was quite difficult for him.
“However, something I’ve never talked about or discussed on this channel, or interviews, or to anyone for that matter, is how difficult it became for me, over time, to continue talking about the same things over and over again,” he added.
He also talked about how his illness took a toll on him. Always getting that reality check to get him to ponder on death, over and over again. Grateful, but overwhelmed and saddened, by messages of fans who are also experiencing the same illness, led him to react by isolating himself and running away from the spotlight, from everything – to collect himself.

Happy 28th bday to the lurker in the back! No one I look up to more in this space than the homie @erwan. As one of the best content creators I’ve come across, an older brother figure, and someone who’s supported and guided me in this game since early on, I’m super grateful to have someone I can continue learning from and most of all just be friends with. Cheers fam ima pop a bottle of saki for you tonight!
“It is just me being honest and expressing the notion that I am scared, and that’s the only reason that I have troubled myself about this and anything that I mentioned previously, and it’s simply because confronting fear is never an easy thing. No matter how difficult it might get sometimes, or no matter how frightening it all is, I never let fear take control of my life. And until you recognize how much fear holds you back, only then can you maximize your potential and reach that point in life where you want to get to.”
Wil concluded the video with a motivational message.
“Don’t let fear control your life. Confront it, no matter how big or small.” Wil Dasovich is now in San Francisco, California, waiting for the results of new scans, a year since beating cancer. Awaiting for the results to be delivered, Wil said that he decided to take a hiatus from social media and focus on himself.
“It was a great year and everything went as planned since arriving in the Philippines. But it is now the 1st year anniversary since the completion of my treatments. I took a bit of a hiatus from social media and just had human contact, in general. This is my life’s update,” was written on Wil’s vlog that’s posted Youtube.

Men should respect women! So when women wear shorts and show more skin, should men still give them the respect they deserve? Absolutely, yes!
But this Vlogger named Kuya Migz, whose video is retweeted thousands of times on twitter, argue that women who wear shorts on a rainy day are just asking for disrespect; implying that they don’t have enough self self-respect or don’t deserve respect at all.
“At umuulan pero marami parin akong nakikitang mga naka shorts na babae.”
“Pake mo ba kung meron?”
“Hinde, para sakin kasi kung ayaw nyu talagang mabastos bes, makinig kayo lalo na yung mga babae ha, kung ayaw nyung mabastos, please lang uhm, respetuhin n’yo muna ‘yung mga sarili ninyo.”
“Kasi nga andito tayo sa… diba?”
LET ME HEAR YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS, HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT THE RECENT NEWS????? YUNG 4 AND 8 MONTHS NA SANGGOL NA NIRAPE?? WALA SA PANANAMIT YAN, KUNG MANYAK/MALIBOG KA PROBLEMA MO NA YUN 🙂 pic.twitter.com/d6Nr4rh50c

His statements received numerous reactions on social media, mostly negative.
Ikr why be with someone who thinks like that lol and they thought they were sharing wisdom when they're just blurting out BS. #ToxicMasculinity

Siya na mismo nagsabi na "nalilibugan sila kapag nakakakita ng babaeng naka shorts/skirts". So sila ang may mali. They have to control themselves first and they should not blame the girls for their outfit kasi dun sila komportable.

We live in a society that has a mindset of wearing a low neck shirt and a pair of shorts are those people who are asking for it. Yet, there was never a dress code for sexual assault but only a mindset.

malalaman mo talaga kung sinong may respeto at walang respeto sa babae eh.

Vlogger Kuya Migz issues apology
“Gusto ko sanang humingi ng tawad dun sa mga taong na offend dun sa ginawa kung video, and sana naman po bigyan nyo po ako ng pagkakataon upang mag bago. I promise na sa susunod na mga video ko magiging aware na po ako sa mga bibitawan kong salita, and inaamin ko po na nagkamali po talaga ako.
“Sana naman po mapatawad nyo po ako at salamat din po sa mga patuloy po nagsusuporta sa’kin kahit na yun po ‘yung nangyare, at dun sa mga nagbigay ng advice na para ma-educate din ako.

It looks like the series of controversies involving beauty vlogger Michelle Dy is not going to end soon as it opened up the wounds of fellow YouTuber Ana Victorino.
The latter wrote Dy and her “minions” an open letter regarding rumors that Dy has copied content ideas from Victorino a few years ago, and yet no one addressed it.
In a post on her Facebook account, she admitted that she did feel betrayed, however, she used that incident to improve herself. She also said that she does not hate the person and she has forgiven her long before.
LET ME BREAK THIS GENTLY
These emotions a.k.a pregnancy hormones make me want to clean up some spilled tea re an old issue which I’ve long forgotten and I even forgave the person a loooong time ago w/o them knowing. I’m just triggered rn cause I have a really huge pimple on my chin w/c makes me irritated as it is sooo painful (and also triggered by some people who may have a hidden agenda a.k.a. the people who wanna divert attention to themselves).
However, my 25 year old-self tells me that my frank mouth isn’t gonna do any good and that somehow I don’t want to deepen the other person’s grave. My 25 yr-old self also tells me that even though the issue is true, I wasn’t credited but hey let’s be real, we can’t undo the past. What’s done is done, people make mistakes. Ok? Let’s leave it like that.
Yes, I felt betrayed but you know what? I used that negative energy into something positive to grow into a better person. I’ve learned a valuable lesson to always be careful when going into business with your friends. It’s the painful truth that confused my mind for the last couple of years. I’ve also learned that you can’t force yourself to be friends with somebody who doesn’t want you to be their friend anymore. This is my silence. I know I should’ve blogged/vlogged but I’m not after the views. I just want to get this out. Thank you.
P.S. I do not hate the person. Again, I believe that anyone can be forgiven.
The online community continued on discussing the issue, Victorino turned to Twitter and ranted about the topic. She said that she did not post her clarification on Facebook to get fame.
And since, Twitter is now made for ranting. Yes, I’m going to be in my feelings ok? 1. I didn’t post my FB status to gain fame. You know why? I’m not in this for the likes, views, or subs. I WAS top 1 top this top that and trust me it was not a good place for me…
Ana said that one of the lessons that she learned is that when you’re on top, everyone is friendly to you. But when she disappeared, the people who were once ‘chummy’ with her suddenly stopped talking to her.
So good that they’d be willing to help you. And then go and stab you in the back later on. I’ve realized just now if some people only became friends with me to ride with the fame or what(that time when I was at the peak of my career). It’s sad they didnt get to know me at all.
She tweeted that she wanted to reach out to Dy last month because she’s still hurt over the incident.
tapos last month I tried to reach out dahil aminin ko may tampo ako dahil nga I dont feel valued in the friendship side. at dahil na din may mga uncontrollable things talaga meant for me but she wanted it all. girl kung alam ko lang ibibigay ko naman eh. just say the word.
but anyway, to summarize my 1st point. di ko kailangan ng numbers para lang itaas ang tingin sa sarili ko. Di lang YouTube ang source of income. And to be honest, wala akong grudge dahil masaya ko sa naging outcome ng idea ko. Truly. Walang charot. Na execute naman ng mabuti.
She stated that she doesn’t need an apology anymore as she has forgiven everyone that has wronged her in the past.
I don’t need pity. I also don’t need an apology. Kasi even without the apology, I already forgave not just her but everyone who wronged me in the past and I hope for the same to everyone I wronged in the past. Lahat kasi tayo nagkakamali. Walang perfect.
What she was annoyed with are the people who kept on defending Dy for the wrong reasons, including the skin shaming issue that the YouTuber is currently facing.
BUT yung nakakainis lang kasi are yung people who are blindly defending her. Like girl, it’s so obvious what she has done. Oo nagkamali siya, but tolerating her to do the wrong thing/s? It’s a lesson she should learn. We can’t just get away with everything especially pag mali na.
Kaka3ggered lang din yung skinshaming part. I have a pimple right now & especially nung teenage years. Hindi ko ginustong magkaroon ng acne. Sabihin na nating for the bashers, but does that justify na you have to point out someone’s flaw just because na criticize ka?
In my opinion lang, she should be sensitive to post about beauty-related stuff being a beauty blogger/influencer. Sometimes kasi, wag puro sarili iniisip. Nasaktan kaya yung pimple ko nung nabasa niya yun.
The influencer called out Dy’s “representatives” for trying to make her change her perception. She even recalled an incident wherein Dy left her in the club, drunk; but she said that it was okay.
I just want to remind your “representatives” to stop changing my mind about you. I saw what I saw, heard what I heard. Wala ng ibang explanation dun. Don’t bother na din to clarify things with me now cause you had years to do so but you didn’t. 🙂
last gimik natin, iniwan niyo ko sa club. Pero alam mo? Okay lang sakin yon. Okay lang kahit na op ako. Sabi ko pa sayo nung lasing na ko before ako umuwi “sana wag mong kakalimutan yung mga taong nagangat sayo. sana wag kang magbabago” sad
Victorino continued on saying that Dy should’ve known better on how to handle criticism as they have been on YouTube for nearly a decade now.
At yun nga, I’ve learned na madaming mangbabash talaga sayo, sisiraan ka, or magbibigay ng constructive criticism, so dapat alam mo na yan bilang what 7 o 8 years ka ng YouTuber? Hello mag iisang decade na tayo cheers.
