Luis Manzano reveals basher’s identity—girl apologizes, he forgives
Luis Manzano silenced a basher when the actor boldly revealed her identity in one of his Instagram posts.
Reportedly, last March 14, a basher identified as Joyce Torrechiva, sent a personal message to Manzano on Instagram and allegedly said, “Ulol bakla ka.”
In what appears to be an effective way of silencing the basher, Manzano unapologetically revealed the latter’s identity by posting a screenshot of her Facebook account. The basher’s profile showed a caption that read “God’s child,” something that the 35-year-old actor poked fun at.
In his comment accompanying his post, the Family Feud host said, “And this is why you never take bashers seriously, 99.9% of the time they have bible quotes, God’s princess, child of God etc etc on their profile… bakit kaya sila ganun… (Why are they like this?) What do you think?”
The unexpected revelation of her identity shook the basher to her senses, leading her to immediately message the Kapamilya star again, but to apologize this time.
“I know ako ang mali. Siguro lesson ito na binash kita kahit ‘di kita kilala personally. Sorry. I know my mistakes; kaya ako, tatanggapin ko na lang consequences ng ginawa ko,” she said.
(I know I am wrong. This might be a lesson for me because I bashed you when I don’t even know you personally. Sorry. I know my mistakes. I accept the consequences of what I did.)
In a further message, the basher shared how she’s now reaping the consequences of her actions, as she has been receiving hate messages from people, even from her friends and husband.
“Sir, sorry na po; ang dami na nila nag-pm (private message). Lesson learned na ako… Nag-pm na rin mga friends ko at asawa ko – galit sa akin,” she said.
(Sir, I’m really sorry, a lot of people have messaged me privately. I have learned my lesson. Even my friends sent me messages, including my husband.)
Manzano accepted the apology and posted a screen shot of the message with the caption, “So the lady has apologized, all good with me, will take down post in a few.”
Manzano eventually deleted his post containing the basher’s identity. JB
