Hindi napigilan ni Gab Valenciano na sagutin ang basher na halatang DDS o Duterte Diehard Supporter.

Sa kanyang Instagram Stories kahapon, April 16, ibinahagi ni Gab ang screenshot ng pagsumpa sa kanya ng netizen.

Ayon pa rito [published as is], “Ano pa ang inaantay mo brod kung makapuna ka kay Tatay Digs wagas… pakamatay ka na. Di na kaya ng depression mo eh.”

Ang "Tatay Digs" na tinutukoy ng netizen ay si Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte.

Hindi ito pinalampas ni Gab.

Sabi niya, “This is a reflection of society today. Kung sino ka man, God bless you.

“Trying to insult me means you are triggering Filipinos struggling to make ends meet.

“Shame on you. I have a beautiful family, support system, and a God who loves me.

“Not my fault you’re miserable.”

Dagdag pa niya, “I receive tweets and messages like this every single day.

“To be honest, I managed to build enough strength to disregard comments like this.

“But what about people who aren’t strong enough? Who may not have support system I do? What a sad and dangerous reality.

“No wonder suicide and depression cases are at an all-time high.

“Filipinos used to be warm, loving, hospitable and caring.

“Where did we lose our way? What happened to us?

“God bless you whoever you are.”

Si Gab ay taus-pusong sumusuporta sa Leni Robredo-Kiko Pangilinan tandem kung saan sumasama siya sa mga campaign sorties ng bise presidente at ng kanyang tiyuhin.

Binabatikos si Gab sa istilo ng kanyang pagsasayaw at pagra-rap sa rally ng Leni-Kiko team at ikinukumpara siya sa UniTeam supporter na si Andrew E.

Kaya naman binalaan ni Angeli Pangilinan-Valenciano ang mga bashers ng anak na tumigil na sa pag-alipusta dito.

"THIS ISN’T ABOUT ME”

Si Gab ang ambassador ng National Red Cross for Mental Health sa bansa.

Kaya naman hinikayat niya ang mga dumaranas ng pagsubok sa depression na lumapit sa kanya o sa Red Cross.

Kaka-recover lamang ni Gab mula sa isang depressive episode kaya malaking bagay sa kanya ang adhikaing makisimpatiya at makatulong sa mga nangangailangan, lalo na ngayong talamak ang mga mental health issues bunga ng cyberbullying sa social media.

Sabi pa niya sa isa pang Instagram Story, “Wow. It’s 4am and already sooo many messages of encouragement. Thank you all so much.

“The reason I am speaking out is because as the National Red Cross Mental Health Ambassador, I have seen enough hardship to stay quiet.

"Once upon a time, I too struggled immensely. But I turned my life around from toxic habits and people because I had pillars of strength to help keep my head above the water.

“But this is isn’t about me. I am speaking for those who may not have the same support and strength to combat such remarks and cruelty.”

Ayon pa sa kanya, marami na raw siyang mga kakilala at mga istoryang nalalaman ukol sa pagdurusa dahil sa online bullying.

Kailangan na daw lumaban para masugpo na ang ganitong kalakaran sa bansa.

Aniya, “I’ve lost too many friends to such an act, and I’ve seen and heard too many stories of people, especially the youth, give up BECAUSE of irresponsible and carnal comments, tweets and messages.

“Trolls or not, fake or real accounts, people who are struggling see and feel those words no matter what if they’re true or not… and to them, it’s as real as the air we breathe.

“We must stand up and fight for the defenseless, for the vulnerable, and make a stand because right now, more than the pandemic, mental health is an issue we must not take lightly.

“If you get to read this and are going through rough waters (or know people), know that you are not alone.

“We’re in this together. DM me or Red Cross Youth and we will do what we can to help and also point you the right direction so you are able to gain that fighting chance at life.

“May God bless you and keep your heart protected and at peace.”
