Bumuhos sa social media ang paghahayag ng suporta ng mga kapamilya, kamag-anak, at kaibigan para sa radio DJ na si Karen Bordador.
Ito ay kasunod ng pagkakaaresto kay Karen at sa boyfriend at suspected drug pusher na si Emilio Lim sa isang buy-bust operation.
Sa Facebook posts na may hashtag na #KARENBORDADORISLOVE, inihayag ng mga malalapit na tao kay Karen ang pagkakakilala nila sa naarestong DJ.
Ayon sa mga nakatatandang kapatid na babae ni Karen na si Eloisa at Jocelyn:
“My baby sister is a good person with a big heart. Our personalities are like water and oil, but she is just like the rest of us, in some ways even better. She only wants the greater good, starting from the people dearest to her heart and ending with the world.
“How heartbreaking is it to have your loved one characterized like a demon when the truth is, every waking moment of her life is spent spreading love, humility, kindness, generosity, and cheerfulness?
"We know Karen Bordador has touched you in one way or another, whether you're a relative, friend, schoolmate, colleague, acquaintance or fan.
“And that is why we would like to encourage you to post a status of the person you know in your heart that she truly is. End it with the hashtag ?#KARENBORDADORISLOVE and help us put an end to this character assassination.”
Ganito rin halos ang mensahe ng pinsan ni Karen na sina Jason at Jiddu Bulatao:
“How heartbreaking is it to have your loved one characterized like a monster when the truth is, every waking moment of her life is spent spreading love, humility, kindness and cheerfulness? We know Karen Bordador has touched you in one way or another, whether you're a relative, friend, schoolmate, colleague, acquaintance or fan. And that is why we would like to encourage you to post a status of the person you know in your heart that she truly is. End it with the hashtag ?#KARENBORDADORISLOVE and help us put an end to this character assassination.”
Samantala, ibinahagi rin ng mga kaibigan at mga nakatrabaho ni Karen ang kanilang pagkakilala sa RX 93.1 DJ.
Sabi ni Jenny Yu:
“Karen Bordador is a loving, humble and jolly person. One who is very determined to achieve her dreams, and supported herself at such a young age although she comes from a privileged family. She helps people without asking for anything in return. A true friend, Karen is indeed a good-natured person. Be strong my dear. We are here for you ?#Godislove ?#KARENBORDADORISLOVE”
Ipinagtanggol naman ni Patricia Villegas si Karen sa patuloy na tinatamong panghuhusga sa kaibigan:
“Miss Karen doesn't deserve all the judgments she's been getting by people who knows/don't know her. Like what the others have been saying, I agree to them when they said that Miss Karen is one of the kindest person they know. Knowing her for three years and counting, she's always been the one who uplifts the SS team's spirit when in need. We love you Miss Karen. Hang in there! #KarenBordadorIsLove.”
'DO NOT JUDGE KAREN.' Ayon naman kay Cate Aquino, walang nagbago sa kanyang pagtingin sa kaibigan na galit diumano sa mga bisyo. Nanawagan din siyang huwag daw kaagad husgahan ang kaibigan.
“To the people who are quick to judge my dearest friend, I hope God does not cut your tongue out. She is one of the cleanest persons I know.
“She doesn't smoke and a glass of wengweng is more than enough to pass her out. We've seen shit load of stuff offered to her just to get her attention - cars, condos, money and yes, drugs. She has ALWAYS refused because to ruin a career she's worked hard for more than half her life is something she's not willing to risk.
“To the media out there, stop using her name as the headline. That is not her condo. That is not her place. Just because it makes better headline to add a celebrity's name does not make it right. You are journalists. You are not storytellers. Stick to the facts! #KARENBORDADORISLOVE?.”
Sa isa pang Facebook post ni Cate, sinabi niyang naniniwala siya sa pagiging inosente ni Karen.
“Nothing has changed.
“You are still that annoying girl who wants me to take a gazillion of photos of you for your blog - even when my hands and legs are already numb;
“You are still that person who would cover her ears whenever I curse - because I am apparently hurting your ears;
“You are still that person who walks away when I gossip or talk bad about other people - because you cannot stand negativity;
“You are still that person who works her ass off on any given day, rushing from one gig to the other and messaging me from time to time to get you hosting gigs;
“You are still that person who wants me to go back into 'showbiz' by doing commercials again or be a blogger, so we can spend more time together.
“You are still that person who frowns when I lit up my cigar - because you hate vices.
“You are still that person who clings on to me when you are down. And I, in return, like a mother, would scold you like a machine gun.
“KAREN, I NEED YOU TO KNOW THAT NOTHING HAS CHANGED. YOU ARE UNTAINTED. THESE PEOPLE QUICK TO JUDGE HAVE NOT SEEN THE HUMILITY AND GOODNESS OF YOUR HEART. I BELIEVE IN YOUR INNOCENCE. AND I WILL CONTINUE TO LET PEOPLE REMEMBER THE KIND OF PERSON YOU ARE. HOLD ON, LOVE. THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE.
Sa ngayon, nakakulong pa rin si Karen kasama ang kanyang boyfriend na si Emilio Lim sa Southern Police District.
