MANILA, Philippines – Popular local actor Piolo Pascual retorted sarcastically to an Instagram user who called him “bakla” (homosexual) in a post on the photo sharing social site.
“I hope your daughter (if she is) grows up to be a respectful person,” replied Pascual.
A report carried on Tuesday by entertainment portal Pep.Ph said that Pascual reacted to a comment made by a social media user on a photo of the actor posted by comedienne Pokwang on her Instagram account.
The photo depicted Pascual with his son, Iñigo, accompanied by a caption, in which Pokwang joked about being the boy’s real mother.
“Dear @iminigopascual maglalayas kaba kapag nalaman mo ang katotohanan na ako talaga ang nanay mo? ask your Dad! @piolo_pascual pero wag kang maingay kasi hindi nya alam ito!!! Hahahhahaa see you tonight anak support ka namin ni daddy mo #CrazyBeautifulYou #showingFeb25 #kathniel.” Read the unedited caption.
Instagra user (joydagz7252009) posted a comment on the photo, which read, “The bakla Piolo hahajaj.”
Pascual, obviously irked by the comment, researched and posted a picture of his basher, with the corresponding retort about the basher’s daughter. The actor, however, has since deleted the photo.
