Web pulsates as Chito Miranda, Neri Naig ‘sex scandal’ deepens


Beleaguered celebrity couple Chito Miranda and Neri Naig pose for a photograph on a beach in this screenshot of an Instagram post of the Parokya ni Edgar frontman.

MANILA, Philippines—Chito Miranda has become a trending topic on Twitter as netizens scour the web for a sex video allegedly involving the Parokya ni Edgar frontman and celebrity girlfriend Neri Naig.

The 7:17-minute video shows a naked couple who appear to be Miranda and his television actress sweetheart making love in various sexual positions. It made its unauthorized screen debut on YouTube, but was quickly taken down.

A cat-and-mouse game has since left YouTube pulsating as users sneak to post a copy of the sex tape that the popular video-sharing website would swiftly expunge.

Porn and file-sharing sites have since carried the steamy film.

Miranda, 37, took to Instagram Saturday to say sorry for a “leaked private video of me and my girlfriend” and later tweeted to explain that his computer hard disk drive and “several other stuff” were stolen.

Later that day, the singer-songwriter posted on Instagram a photo of him and 27-year-old Naig on a beach, bearing the caption “Di n’yo kami matitinag.”

Flaks, calls for respect

The sex scandal draws mixed reactions from cyber citizens. reader Fulpol wonders: “What is the point of ‘video-ing’ your sex stunts with your lover? So you have performance parameters? Parang review ng basketball play. Hindi maganda ang performance kaya aayusin na ang performance next time. I don’t get it.”

Some fans came to their defense.

Al Christine  (@iamalchristine) tweets that Miranda “rocked with us through the years”, while Mike™ (@iamChanMichael) appeals to netizens not to “let one private video destroy Chito Miranda‘s legacy.”

“This should be a lesson for all of us, not an entertainment for perverts,” Mike™ adds.

“OhmyGee!” Meldelyn Deloso says, admitting she has admired Naig even during the reality search show Star Circle Quest on ABS-CBN television in 2004, where she made a 6th runner up finish.

Jesther Capil ‏(@jaaaaaamPONG) professes in a tweet hashtagged #respect his unwavering admiration for his idol. “I will always be a fan of Chito Miranda, no matter what.”

No more Hayden Kho

Harold Geronimo (‏@harold_geronimo) on Twitter opines: “That Chito Miranda-Neri Naig video scandal is another lesson for all couples to stop video recording their own private affairs.”

In 2009, the Internet sizzled after a sex video of celebrity cosmetic surgeon Hayden Kho with actresses Katrina Halili and Maricar Reyes made the rounds on the web after the surgeon’s computer files were stolen. Kho would later be stripped of his professional license and slapped with lawsuits for illegally taking videos of his hot trysts.

Some web citizens simply poke fun at the scandal.

“Only Neri touches my Birdie,” tweets Boy Banatero (‏@BoyBanatero) in what seems to be a funny allusion to Parokya ni Edgar’s 1999 hit single “Don’t Touch My Birdie.”

Joey Kyle ‏(@kyleeismyname) posts a made up message of Kho to Miranda: “Been there, done that bro.”

For YouTube user PinoyCommercials096, the sex video is simply too lurid to handle. “Oh my God I can’t be in here. Oh my God…!!!!!!”

But reader Jaeger Meister, like many netizens, is in dire straits. “Now, the million dollar question is: Where can I find this steamy video, huh?”

    Who delete it? You Tube or Chito himself? Because Chito could only delete what he has posted, not postings of somebody else without knowing the password of that person.

    • _Intel_

      deleted due to complaint from chito most probably

  • Hannah Blake

    hoy editor! bakit mo dinelete comment ko? Just because I called you stupid by publishing such an article in the headline? You ought not to publish this item on the headline because it has nothing to do with national issues? or don’t you know what a national issue is?

  • RedvD

    Well, how many times should it be repeated to lovers.. in this age of video and internet, if you guys decide to create a sex tape, just keep one copy and let the GIRL have it, respeto lang.. the men cant be trusted to take care of it.

    that being said… Sarap ni Neri, tayong tayo pa ang boobies…

    I have to agree with some bloggers here, why make it into a national headline? to destroy chito? to create more traffic or circulation? to get a scoop? I dont get it. It would go away quite unnoticed if not pushed into the spotlight. So now, I have a copy

    • Noel

      No need to destroy Chito. He has already self destructed.

    • Kai Yoton

      ay oo. sarap talaga. boobies pa lang yan ha.

    • TheRagingSouL

      anong tayo pa ang boobies ni Neri…sa tingin ko nga parang apat na na sanggol ang naka dede. kasi losyang na ang kanyang boobies….

  • Hannah Blake

    Hey! Whoever deleted my comment, kindly explain why? what’s wrong with it? I just said that this item ought no to be in the headline, right? because it has nothing to do with national issues! Of course I called the editor stupid by allowing such a headline!

  • Ronald Catubig
