Pokwang calls out Baninay for ‘clickbait’ vlog: ‘’Wag mong pagkaperahan ‘yang nagka-COVID ka’
Pokwang lashed out at former “Pinoy Big Brother” housemate Baninay Bautista for posting a vlog about being positive for coronavirus, weeks after she recovered from the disease.
The “Chika Besh” talk show host said that the vlogger caused her to panic about the diagnosis because Bautista was a guest at her game show recently, as per her tweets yesterday, Aug. 19.
Pokwang (real name: Marietta Subong) did not mention the show, though she hosts “Fill in the Blanks” with Jose Manalo on TV5.
The comedienne did not hold back as she addressed Bautista.
“Dahil sa vlog mo [nagpanic kami] p*tah ka! [E] late upload naman [‘yan] at negative naman result mo last [A]ug. 2!!” she said on Twitter.
“[‘Wag mong gawin pagkaperahan yang [nagka-COVID] ka may nalalaman [ka pa] na update update sa mga ganap [sa ‘yo] e negative na nga [‘di ba]? [N]angdamay [ka pa] ng nerbios at gastos!”
(We panicked because of your vlog f*ck you! It’s a late upload and your results were negative last Aug. 2!! Don’t use having COVID as a way for you to earn. You even said that you would give updates, but you are negative right? You caused [others] to be nervous and spend!)
Bautista’s vlog ends with her saying that she is going to a quarantine facility and that she will provide updates on her situation.
Pokwang added in another tweet, “[J]uly 21 ka nagkasakit tapos [A]ug. 2 [OK ka na] negative [ka na]!”
“Aug. 16 naglaro ka [sa ‘min] nagpanic [kami] kanina dahil [‘di] mo sinabi sa vlog mo na late upload [na ‘yan]! [P]a-trending ka!”
(You got sick on July 21 and on Aug. 2 you were OK already, you were negative already! Aug. 16 you played with us, we panicked because you didn’t say in your vlog that it was a late upload! You just want to trend!)
Pokwang also claimed that Bautista was not responding to calls from the show’s staff.
The vlog has a disclaimer in the comments section that says it was filmed on July 21. It appears to have been added after Pokwang’s call-out.
Though Bautista did not respond directly to Pokwang’s tweets, her boyfriend, Bont Oropel, defended her on Twitter. He has his own vlog about his experience with COVID-19 where he detailed how his father died of pneumonia.
He said that Bautista entered the show with negative test results and that she did not deserve the “hurtful” comments. He said that the vlog was made to provide inspiration and not to profit from it.
In response, Pokwang insisted that Bautista should have been “responsible” in uploading the vlog.
“Sa ganitong panahon maging responsableng vlogger naman! [H]indi yung puro pera pera lang… [‘wag] ganon!!!!!” she said.
(In these times be a responsible vlogger! Not one who is just after money… don’t be like that!)
“Nakikiramay ako sa nangyare [sa ‘yo] pero ang sinasabi ko dito [‘yung] GF mo dapat inayos nya ang pag upload para [‘di] nag cause ng panic sa mga nakasama nya at [‘di] nya dineklara sa show na nagkasakit pala sya! [M]ay anak ako at nanay na may sakit natural lang ang [r]eaksyon ko iho!”
(I sympathize with what happened to you, but what I am saying is your GF should have uploaded it properly so that she would not have to cause panic among the people she was with, and she did not declare on the show that she had been sick! I have children and a mother who is ill, so my reaction is only natural!)
Nakikiramay ako sa nangyare sayo pero ang sinasabi ko dito yung GF mo dapat inayos nya ang pag upload para di nag cause ng panic sa mga nakasama nya at di nya dineklara sa show na nagkasakit pala sya! may anak ako at nanay na may sakit natural lang ang teaksyon ko iho! https://t.co/iY9LYLebMz

Bautista appeared to have addressed the matter, based on her tweet last night.
We already talked and settled things in private. I apologized for causing fear and ngayon po ay clear na lahat. Again, sorry po. Wala po talaga akong intensyon na masama 🙏🏼

“We already talked and settled things in private. I apologized for causing fear and ngayon po ay clear na lahat (now everything has been cleared),” she said. Again, sorry po. Wala po talaga akong intensyon na masama (I really had no bad intentions).” /ra
