Actress-turned-politician Niña Jose-Quiambao answered the critics who called her ‘overreacting’ for her decision to trace the parents of the students who made fun of her on social media.
In her Facebook post, the Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition Season 1 contestant who became the mayor of Bayambang, Pangasinan stood by her decision to discipline the children under her jurisdiction.
According to her, she was also a human being who deserved to be respected.
“Yes, I am OA, I Am Pikon, I am Unbecoming, Yes, Yes you are all heard and validated. Lahat ng masa sabi nyo na masasama sakin Iconsolidate natin lagay nyo nalang dito sa comment section ng post na to. Ok lang naman for me, I am still standing by my actions and if this is the consequence it’s okay. Ano pa ba, Patolera? Bakit ka NagMayor eh Pikon ka pala? lagay nyo lahat dito,” said QUiambao.
“Yes Im a public official, but I am also a human being, and again like what I said, freedom of speech doesn’t give you any right to disrespect anyone. You can criticize someone respectfully. We, I speak in behalf of public officials (and not just “politicians”) this includes teachers, people in authority, etc deserve respect too. Also again, before you say something bad about us make sure may nagawa na kayo sa bayan nyo Hindi yung puro opinion lang etc,” she added.
It can be recalled that Jose-Quiambao posted some of the students who made fun of her and called her ‘grade 2 level’.
“Ang mga bata ngayon kailangan turuan ng good manners at right conduct talaga. marami taming walang modo at respeto. Masyado kayo feeling entitled! learn how to RESPECT people, boy! Sorry if mayabang ako at pinost ko pa to. But this is something I’m sure most public officials get on a daily basis. People don’t respect you anymore. And I REFUSE to be treated this way. I will find you and talk to your parents personally!” Quiambao said.
