Kit Thompson pokes fun at himself in ‘mga words’ memes
Kit Thompson—or anyone for that matter—could not have imagined that one of his claims to fame would be memes of him at a loss for words as he tried to control his temper.
It was around late August when a clip of Thompson during his stint in “Pinoy Big Brother” in 2012 went viral on Twitter.
The video showed him visibly upset as he said, “Gusto ko sumabog, sabihin ng masamang…mga words (I want to explode and say bad…words).” His reaction came from a confrontation after a difficult task in “PBB.”
The clip has become a meme, blowing up as a reaction to personal frustrations. A tweet from one @stacetubeza on Aug. 28 went viral with 46,000 likes as of this writing. “Yung hindi lumabas sa exam yung pinag-aralan mo (When what you studied does not appear in the exam),” the tweet said with the video attached.

Thompson, 22, spoke up on the revival of the video taken when he was 15 years old and struggling with Filipino.
“Bakit n’yo hinahalungkat mga old videos ko? Gusto ko na magsalita ng masasamang… words,” he said, reenacting his upset reaction before bursting into laughter in a Facebook video on Aug. 31.
(Why are you digging up my old videos? It makes me want to say bad… words.)
He poked fun at his viral video on Instagram too, posting a portrait of himself on Instagram on Wednesday, Sept. 4, with the caption, “Tahimik lang ako… Pero sasabog nako (I am keeping quiet… but I am about to blow up).”
On Twitter and Facebook, others have continued to find new ways to use “mga words” in memes.
Monday na naman bukas. Handa na akong sumabog at magsabi ng masasamang… Mga words.
