“YOU have no right to ruin my daughter’s reputation!” Yan ang mariing sinabi ni Myra Abo Santos, ang ina ng babaeng netizen na diumano’y biktima ng pambu-bully ni Ellen Adarna sa social media.
Isang open letter ang ipinost ni Gng. Santos sa Facebook para ipaalam kay Ellen kung paano nakaapekto sa anak niyang si Eleila na isang menor de edad at sa kanilang pamilya ang ginawa nitong pagpo-post ng video at photo ng bagets sa Instagram na may malisyoso pang caption.
“We are reaching out to you to let you know how deeply hurt we are by the unneeded stress and unwanted attention you caused after you uploaded a photo and video of her on Instagram, without any consent from us,” ang simulang mensahe ng ina ni Eleila.
“After her friends told her about the ‘Instagram Story’ that you posted where she was first identified, she was mature enough to immediately write privately to you and explain the situation: that she was taking footage of her food.
“We initially took it lightly, thinking things would be resolved quickly and the 30-year old you would give the two minors the benefit of the doubt. Even her aunt wrote a private message to you, and mentioned she is a minor. However, we did not hear anything from you.
“Instead, you posted a one sided narrative and insisted on erroneous and unfounded accusations again on Instagram. You have claimed my daughter is guilty, rude, and has been repeatedly insinuating my daughter is lying. You even said that you can handle bashers and hope my child could, too.
“I want to tell you that she is not like you, she never needed to. She is a private individual who has not even turned 18. As a celebrity, we would have thought you would understand the value of privacy,” sabi pa ni Mrs. Santos.
Naniniwala pa ang pamilya ng dalagita na talagang intensyon ni Ellen na ipahiya si Eleila. Nakipag-usap na rin sila sa kanilang abogado tungkol sa kontrobersyang ito.
“When we watched this video, coupled with the lack of an actual response from your side – it was clear to us – you did not want an explanation. You only want to defame our daughter publicly,” sabi pa ng ina ni Eleila.
“As her family, we ask you to publicly apologise to Eleila. We prefer not to take this further, but as our only daughter, we are ready to take this wherever needed to protect her integrity. As much as no one has the right to breach your privacy, you have no right to ruin my daughter’s reputation,” aniya pa.
Last Friday, ipinost ni Ellen ang video ni Eleila habang kinukunan daw sila nito nang palihim habang kumakain sa isang restaurant. Nilagyan pa niya ito ng caption na: “Oo yan ha . . . You know the feeling . . . Uncomfy noh? When you PAP us, we PAP you too! Nasa resto eh. It’s a tie.”
Ayon naman sa dalagita, ang kinukunan daw niya ng litrato ay ang kanyang pagkain at hindi si Ellen.
