Agot Isidro fired back at her detractors after receiving flak for commenting on Jinkee Pacquiao’s photo of her Hermes and Louis Vuitton bikes on her Instagram account.
On her Twitter account, Isidro posted what looks like her retort to her bashers who felt she should not have reacted the way she did upon seeing Pacquiao’s luxurious bikes.
Earlier, Isidro had reacted to Pacquiao’s post of her luxurious bikes.
“Alam namin na marami kayong pera. At kung ano ang gusto ninyong gawin sa pera na yun, wala kaming pakialam,” Isidro wrote.
(We know you have so much money. And we don’t care how you spend your money.)
“Pero marami rin ang walang trabaho at nagkukumahog humanap ng pera para may pakain sa kanilang pamilya. Puede ba, konting sensitivity man lang? #Nouveau,” she added.
(But there are so many jobless people who are scrounging food for their families. Can you have at least some sensitivity?)
On Twitter today, July 11, Isidro clarified about her previous comment.
“Sinabi ko naman na wala akong pakialam kung saan ginastos ang kaperahan. i’m sure marami na rin ang natulungan. ang sa akin lang, kailangan ba namin makita yan, sa gitna nang paghihirap na dinaranas ng nakararami? sensitivity ≠ accountability. iba po yun. Ktnxbye,” she tweeted.
(I’ve said that I don’t care where she spends her money. I’m sure she has helped so many people. But do we need to see them (bikes) amidst the hardships being felt by many people? Sensitivity and accountability. They’re different. Okay, thanks, bye.)
Isidro must have been told that it was her hashtag nouveau which incensed Pacquiao, thus, her follow-up tweet, “Ah so sa nouveau triggered. hindi sa insensitive. ok, noted po. Last na ito.”
(Oh, she was triggered by the word nouveau and not the insensitive word. Ok, I’ll take note. This is the last I will touch on the issue).
That said, Isidro earned the collective ire of the netizens.
@Yna46348092 told the singer just to be happy, “Maging masaya nalang po na at least there are still people na nakaka ahon pa, if poverty is the enemy then be happy na may isang pamilyang mayaman, we have less poverty incidents to fight. May kasabiban na if hindi kayang tumulong huwag maging problema.”
(Just be happy that at least there are people who are able to rise [from poverty], if poverty is the enemy, then be happy that there is one rich family. There’s a saying that if you can’t help, don’t be a problem).
Envious is what @i_am_japeng described Isidro, saying, “Wala ka ngang pakialam pero ang dami mo pa rin kinukuda. Inggitera ka masyado.”
(You don’t care, but still you have many things to say. You’re so envious.)
@Ag8151129, however, believes that Isidro is not contradicting herself. “The fact na you take time na mag tweet about the bike showed na may pakialam ka.”
(The fact that you have time to tweet about the bike showed that you care.)
@philip_pelisan felt Isidro should not be affected by what Pacquiao is posting, “E ano naman ngayon kung e popost ni miss jinkee? Reason pa ba ang pandemic? Where in fact before pandemic marami ng nagugutom. Sabihin mo lang inggit ka lang at ginawa mo pa na reason ang sitwasyon ngayon. Ktnxbye.”
(So what if Jinkee posts it? Is pandemic still a reason? Even before the pandemic, many were already hungy. Just say that you’re envious and you made the current situation as the reason.)
Pointing out that some Hollywood celebrities also posts their luxurious acquisitions, @heyyjoycie asked the singer, “BAKIT KAPAG YUNG IBANG MAYAYAMAN/CELEBRITY SA IBANG BANSA, ‘DI NIYO PINAPAKIELAMAN MGA PINOPOST NILA, PERO PAG KAPWA PILIPINO TODO BASH? NYARK.”
(Why is it that you don’t care about what rich celebrities in other countries post, but you bash your fellow Filipinos?) /ra
