Bretman Rock appeals to fans to stop crashing dad’s funeral for photos
Bretman Rock appealed for some common courtesy as he called out people gatecrashing his father’s funeral to take pictures with him.
The YouTuber star and beauty influencer tweeted last night, Nov. 21, “Can people just let me be sad for [once]… I’m here in the Philippines for my dad who just passed, don’t come to my house and ask me for pictures.”
“So many people showed up to my [dad’s] funeral uninvited and started taking pics of my dad and my family,” he said.
“I just don’t understand why people think it’s okay to ask me for pictures when my eyes are literally swollen from crying,” he said in another tweet.

Bretman announced on Nov. 5 that his father, Edmund Laforga, had gone into a coma. The next day, he posted emoji of a heart and a dove, which seemed to refer to his dad’s passing. He has since kept his social media presence more low-key than usual.
Amid his mourning, the beauty vlogger still found a way to make fun of himself as he posted yesterday a selfie of him crying with snot dripping from his nose.
The 21-year-old, whose real name is Bretman Rock Sacayanan, is a social media sensation based in Hawaii. He has earned millions of followers online for his makeup tutorials and his sassy sense of humor. /ra
