“Oh ano na @alexdnclz [Alexandra “Alex” Lopez] @_gabbigarcia [Gabbi Garcia]? Namatay lolo nyo?!?! Lol edi mabuti nga!” commented the netizen, @sellingphonecase, on Instagram.
(So what now @alexdnclz @_gabbigarcia? Your grandfather died? Lol that’s good!)
The said netizen also took a jab at Garcia’s friend, Khalil Ramos, with whom she is rumored to be in a relationship: “Kasi namanang reason mo @_gabbigarcia sapag-alis sa sps [Sunday PinaSaya] ay family mo, pero nakikita naman ng lahat ay [h]indi mo naman palagi kasama yang family mo kasi ang mas nakasama mo ay yang gago na Khalil at mga kabilang network mong friend!”
(Your reason @_gabbigarcia for leaving Sunday PinaSaya was your family, but everyone can see that you are not spending your time with your family because you are with that stupid Khalil and your friends from the other network!)
“Mas inuna mo pa @_gabbigarcia yung landi, gala at walwal kasama yang bad influence na si Khalil Ramos na [a]raw araw mong kasama!” added the netizen.
(You @_gabbi garcia prioritized flirting, hanging out with friends and getting drunk with the bad influence Khalil Ramos who you’re with every day!)
“Ni isa [h]indi namin na kita na nag spespend time ka kasama lolo mo!” wrote the netizen. “Kaya karma yan! Sana matuluyan rin yang [lola] mo at parents mo!”
(Not once did we see you spending time with your grandfather! It’s karma! I hope your grandmother and parents die as well!)
The netizen ended his/er comment bringing up Ramos once more and their frequent late-night hangouts: “Nakasama mo lang yang si Khalil ay palagi ka nang nasa labas at late night pa!”
(Since you’ve been with Khalil you are always staying out late at night!)
Fans were quick to react to Garcia’s post, voicing out their support for the actress. Some said that the netizen will receive his or her karma for the comment.

My dearest Lolo, you were such a blessing to all of us. You are the most generous and kind hearted person I know. I will miss you and your silly jokes, and how you would go from neighbor to neighbor just to announce that “GABBI GARCIA IS MY APO!” ❤️ It’s crazy how you would shower your love and support to all of us, and I'm so happy that I still got to say I love you before you went to heaven. You have lived a good life, Lolo. Marami ka pong natulungan, napasaya, pinatawa, at minahal. It's time to rest now. Hug Jesus for me, lolo ❤️ I'm sure you're happy. I love you forever. Rest in peace.
She posted a photo of her grandfather on Instagram Stories today.
“Hug Jesus for me Lolo,” captioned the actress. “Have fun in heaven.” NVG
