Playing the role of Geneva as a villain in GMA 7’s hit afternoon series “Ika-6 na Utos”, Angelika dela Cruz admitted that she was being bashed on social media. She said she strongly stands against bullying and will never tolerate it.

According to Angelika, the basher told her, “Mamatay ka na!” then she bravely answered back.

“’Mauna ka! Bakit ako? Ikaw ang mamatay! G*go ka ba?”

“Piniktyuran ko yung ano niya, ‘tapos pinost ko. Ganun yun.”

She said after she responded, the basher didn’t answer back.

Angelika claimed she knew it wasn’t right to fire back but there were also times when she’s not in good mood. But then,  she was trying to understand those bashers as they might have their own frustrations and misfortunes in life which they wanted to pass on other people.

“Pero alam mo, minsan kasi, pag inisip mo din, alam mong iyon yung mga taong baka may pinagdadaanan o malulungkot sila sa buhay nila.”

“Yung frustrations nila ibinubuhos nila sa ibang tao. Kaya masyado silang affected.”

“Actually, sa totoo lang, hindi mo sila dapat patulan pero kasi minsan, not naman all the time din…”

“Alam mo yung understanding ka, lalo na pag natiyempuhan ka na medyo bad trip ka, o nagdi-dysmenorrhea ka tapos mababasa mo, ‘Mamatay ka na!”

“Di ba parang, ‘Bakit ako? Mauna ka!”

“E, ako pa naman, patol.”

Angelika who serves as a barangay captain in their place in Malabon claimed that social media has advantages and disadvantages. And as a public servant, she does not and will never tolerate bullying.

“Ang social media kasi maraming advantages pero marami ring disadvantages, kasi parang ako sa barangay ko, very ano ako sa bullying, e.”

“Kasi di ba, yung mga kasu-kaso sa school? Kami yung umaano nun, e.”

“Pati yung sa BCPC [Barangay Councils for the Protection of Children], yung protection para sa mga children. Marami kaming kaso na puro pambu-bully, mostly social media.”

She said that they offer seminars to children who were victims of bullying to explain to them their responsibilities.

“Delicate kasi pag underage yung mga inaano. Pero ako madalas akong magpa-seminar sa mga bata.

“Para ipaintindi sa kanila na you have a responsibility, hindi ka puwedeng click ka nang click. Dapat nagti-think ka rin, di ba?”

Angelika then advised everyone to defend themselves against bullying and not to be afraid to speak up.

“Huwag matakot, speak up! Dun sa mga nabu-bully, huwag kayong matakot, speak up for yourself.”

“Kung hindi mo kayang i-defend yung sarili mo, humingi ka ng tulong, para madepensahan ka.”

On the other hand, she recommended that people who enjoyed bullying should seek psychiatric help.”

“Dun naman sa mga nambu-bully, seek psychiatric help.”

“Kasi ibig sabihin, pag gusto mong manakit ng kapwa mo, may issues ka sa sarili mo.”

In fact, Angelika shared that her 8-year-old child, Gabby, also became a victim of bullying.

“Nung una, nabu-bully siya. Kasi may pagka-special yung anak ko, e.”

“Meron siyang slight autism, so siyempre pag ganun, since eccentric nga sila, medyo iba, ang tendency ma-bully.”

“Pero kinausap ko siya. Sabi ko, ‘Huwag kang papayag na ma-bully ka.”

“Sabi ko, ‘You tell your teacher or you tell mommy para we know what to do.”

“Hindi sinabi kay mommy, sinuntok yung classmate!”

“E, di siyempre pinatawag ako sa school.”

“Sabi ko, ‘O, Gabby, why did you hit your classmate?”

“Sabi niya, ‘E, kasi he’s bullying me, mommy, e. Di ba sabi mo don’t let people bully me?”

“Oo, pero hindi ko naman sinabi na dyombagin mo, anak! Baka sabihin tinuturuan ka ng nanay mo ng hindi maganda.”
