‘Say these things straight to our faces’: Sunshine Cruz calls out daughters’ schoolmates for lewd comments
Actress Sunshine Cruz and her daughters has brought to light disrespectful and lewd comments made against them two years ago.
Sunshine’s second daughter Sam shared on Twitter yesterday, July 12 photos of a Facebook post where three of her and her siblings’ male schoolmates made lewd remarks about them.
It appears that one of the boys made a post, stating that juniors in the school had no balls to ask out the celebrity whom he identified as “si Montano.” Two other boys replied to the post, where sexual remarks were made about Sunshine and her youngest daughter, Chesca.
“[J]ust saw this now but this was posted [on] a dibs page 2 years ago for my sister’s prom. [S]he let this pass BUT I [WON’T]. [T]his will never be okay. [T]he fact that [I] KNOW some of these people is scary,” Sam said.
“[T]o disrespect our mom? [A]nd my sister who was 12 AT THAT TIME. [W]ow,” she added.
Sunshine likewise shared photos of the comments today on Twitter, stating, “Schoolmates ng mga anak ko pa pala itong tatlo.” (These three are schoolmates of my kids.)
“I hope you’ll have the courage to face us and say these things straight to our faces,” she dared.
Angelina, who graduated from De La Salle Santiago Zobel School this year, opened up about being afraid to speak up on the issue in the past.
“[Two] years ago when this happened, I was hesitant on speaking up about this. I was too scared and was going through a tough time,” she said on Twitter.
“I regret not doing anything, so I might as well bring attention to this now. [M]y youngest sister was 12. [T]his was not [OK] then, it will never be [OK] now.”
Sunshine shared a picture of her together with her daughters today to once again address lewdness from men on social media.
Wala kaming sinasaktan at inaapakang tao. Hindi pagkain o bagay ang mga babae. Anong satisfaction ang nakukuha nyo sa pambabastos nyo sa amin? I may have done sexy movies in the past but it is never a valid reason to treat us this way. pic.twitter.com/qA3BZZKE1i

“Wala kaming sinasaktan at inaapakang tao. Hindi pagkain o bagay ang mga babae,” she declared.
(We are not hurting or stepping on anyone. Women are not food or objects.)
“Anong satisfaction ang nakukuha nyo sa pambabastos nyo sa amin?” she asked.
(What satisfaction do you get out of disrespecting us?)
Sunshine added, “I may have done sexy movies in the past but it is never a valid reason to treat us this way.” JB
