Did a contestant of Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids utter a curse word while performing?
When Sheena Belarmino transformed into Nicki Minaj for the June 3 episode of Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids, she became viral for a certain line from her song.
She performed "Starships" for ABS-CBN's impersonation competition for celebrities.
In the post-chorus of the song, the line goes: "We're higher than a m*therf*cker."
Netizens were angered since there were those who believed that a minor uttered the word m*therf*cker while performing for television.
However, there were those who said that the 12-year-old girl did not actually say the expletive.
Critics and defenders alike talked about the controversial episode using the hashtag #YFSFKMagalingMagaling.
Through the Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids Facebook page, management issued a statement indicating that Sheena did not utter a swear word: "Kafamiliars, we would like to inform you that all the lyrics that our celebrity kid performers sing are clean versions.
"Sabi po ni Sheena 'Mother Mother.'"
