‘Suntukan tayo’: Piolo Pascual challenges basher who called him, Iñigo ‘bakla’
Piolo Pascual has had enough of people speaking ill of him and his son Iñigo. When a basher recently said the father and son are both gay, he challenged said netizen to a fistfight.
It all started when Piolo proudly showed off his and Iñigo’s first run for a financial services company in Jakarta, Indonesia, in a photo he shared via Instagram yesterday, Jan. 21. While his fans immediately showered them with congratulatory messages, one netizen, Leovi Reyes (@superleovi), posted a comment that irked Piolo.
“Mag-amang bakla (Gay father and son) [laughs],” Reyes said. Piolo replied, challenging the basher to a fistfight, “Suntukan tayo! (Let’s fight!).”
The netizen continued goading the actor, repeatedly asking Pascual for the place where the fistfight will happen.
Not long after, the actor replied again, asking the commenter to name a place. “Ikaw magbigay at pupunta [ako] now mismo (You give me [the name of the place] and I will go there immediately),” the netizen answered back.
The netizen went as far as to say that he’s getting impatient waiting for Pascual’s reply. He then asked the Kapamilya actor if the fistfight should happen in front of ABS-CBN.
He later told Pascual he was at Timog. When the actor asked for his exact location, he told him he will just go to the place Pascual will name.
“[Wala] ito, malabo na ‘to ako na nga pupunta eh (This is impossible, I already told him I will go [to where he is now]),” the netizen commented. Piolo replied, “Public mo account mo at intayin mo [ako d’yan] (Make your account public and wait for me there).”
Whether or not Pascual and the basher engaged in a fistfight is not known. The actor, however, took a screenshot of the netizen’s profile and shared it on Instagram Stories.
Piolo and Iñigo made headlines in 2017 after a video of them kissing on the lips went viral. He explained that he raised his son to be affectionate, the same way he and his siblings were raised by his parents.
Piolo is frequently called gay by naysayers and the actor is known to usually answer back. Last year, he called out a netizen who claimed his “best friend” was his boyfriend. In 2015, the actor responded with sarcasm at another social media user who also called him gay. JB
