Are you kidding? In this day and age when bullying can happen virtually with a touch of a finger because of the advent of social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, this will never happen. The public wants to have a say over this issue and people will continuously try to get involved and no brilliant idea can repair the damage. Not now.
As if it was only yesterday when crying lady KC Concepcion got the attention of those who feel for her while so many were making fun of Piolo Pascual’s sexuality, Mo Twister and Rhian Ramosbrouhaha instantly took over their place as the most talked about celebrities on the web, and at the moment even in many households. This time, it’s not about a bad breakup or sexual preeference. It is something more serious, it can even change or tarnish public image.
The man of the hour, Mo Twister, decided not to appear on Paparazzi last Sunday where he is supposed to air his side on the troubled video uploaded last Friday, Dec. 2. In just a few hours of being available online, the video which says Mo’s ex-girlfriend Rhian had an abortion in an unidentified hospital in Singapore in July last year, became viral. In the video, the sobbing Mo who is presumably talking to himself says the file will serve as a ‘souvenir’ of what happened in a posh hotel on July 28, 2010 and what is about to take place the day after.
The controversial disc jockey, who already apologized through Twitter, said that he had nothing to do with the uploaded video on YouTube. He furthered that a lot of his things were sold including his computers where the said video, which he said he has deleted, was stored.
This showbiz episode reminds us how Hayden Kho and Katrina Halili scandal video spread like wildfire. Nobody, even the person who recorded the video, knew who maniacally made the private media file available for public consumption. And like the former beauty doctor, Mo or Mohan Gumatay in real life, is earning no sympathy from the public most especially from the netizens who badmouthed him and went to the extent of cursing him.
On the other side of the fence, there are people who want to keep themselves away from this salacious chapter of the post Mo and Rhian relationship as there are more important issues. But that’s how we create diversion. We are more engrossed when see a celebrity suffer or cry rather than seeing real people’s quandary. And this episode will continue for a few days even for a few weeks until someone creates another blunder or scandal.
Waiting for the natural death of the issue is the only solution. As time goes by, people will forget about Mo Twister’s viral video, they will stop talking about the alleged abortion of Rhian Ramos. When your television networks no longer give them media mileage, the issue will just die down. Like what happened to Hayden Kho and Katrina Halili scandal, it reached its peak as if it was the only issue that mattered. But do people still talk about them now?
