"Youngest stunner" at "cutest pair" sa red carpet ng opening session kahapon ng 17th Congress ang ilan sa mga positive feedback sa father-and-daughter team ni Quezon City District V House Representative Alfred Vargas at ng kanyang 6-year-old daughter na si Aryana.
Pero ilang netizens na iba ang pananaw ang hindi pinalampas ni Yasmine Espiritu, ang asawa ng actor-politician na hindi nakadalo sa State of the Nation Address ni President Rodrigo Duterte dahil bed rest siya na epekto ng maselang pagbubuntis.
On point na sinagot ni Yasmine ang isang follower niya sa Instagram na nagbigay ng unsolicited opinion na "That kid doesn’t belong in that kind of affair yet. What does she knows or understands other than being in a social media. Just saying…sorry."
Kahit bed rest si Yasmine, nagkaroon siya ng panahong paliwanagan at sagutin ang "just saying" statement ng IG follower niya.
Mensahe niya "First of all, 'that kid' has a name and it’s Ary.
"Second, she was there to support her Daddy as I’m in bed rest.
"I don’t think it’s bad to be a good and loving daughter, especially at a young age.
"Third, the children of other gov’t officials were present as well because it’s standard practice for family members to be invited to the SONA.
"Ary definitely belongs in 'this kind of affair.' It is her right.
"And to tell you frankly, she is a very bright girl and you will be surprised about her understanding of things.
"Next time, please think before you judge children. Know the facts before you post.
"Your life must be so pathetic and miserable for an adult like you to bash a little kid. Just saying…"
