The spotlight is still at Ateneo after the t0rm*nting occurrence inside the school premises as reactions spill out of netizens, who are pausing and watching the school’s taking care of on the issue.
A few identities have remarked via web-based networking media, denouncing the domineering jerk Montes siblings and the school’s “delicate” position on the t0rm*nting case.
Then, widely acclaimed artist Lea Salonga who is known for her impartial supposition additionally remarked on the issue saying that Montes’ parents should pun*sh their kid.
“I think we all agree that the school needs to take much swifter action with regards to this boy’s pattern of behavior (there are allegedly more victims, and more videos), as well as with this boy’s accomplices, and that the b*11y’s parents need to come down hard on their kid. On that, we have common ground.” She said
Salonga also advised the victims of b*11ying to gear up and defend themselves, as she gives the parents an idea to have their children enrolled in self-defenses classes, but reiterates not to instigate any harm against others.
Lastly, the singer warns Ateneo: “Yes, Ateneo de Manila. We are all watching.”
Lea Salonga’s full post reads
There has been so much posted online regarding the b11ying incident inside the boys’ rest room of the Ateneo de Manila junior high school. Plenty of inflamed netizens have reacted, and lamented the seeming indifference of school officials due to the supposed well-connectedness of this boy’s parents. I think we all agree that the school needs to take much swifter action with regards to this boy’s pattern of behavior (there are allegedly more victims, and more videos), as well as with this boy’s accomplices, and that the b11y’s parents need to come down hard on their kid. On that, we have common ground.
For the victims, here’s one piece of advice: don’t be defenseless anymore. Parents, it might be a good idea to enroll your child in a self-defense class (aside from TKD, there’s jiu jitsu and karate, as well as other forms of martial arts that might be fun as well as useful). So that when a little s*** b*11y tries to mess with your son or daughter, you’re already ahead of the game. But never instigate; only defend.
No parent should ever have to feel the terror the victims’ parents must feel, sending their beloved into what that child considers a place of dread rather than a hallowed hall of learning.
Yes, Ateneo de Manila. We are all watching.
