Bashers Hit Sherilyn Reyes For Organic Rice Posting In Instagram Amid Yolanda TragedyCelebrities should learn to be extra prudent when making statements or even making posts at Instagram these days. They logically dislike being immersed in hot waters instantly. These are the times when Pinoy netizens are turning more sensitive as they feel the agony and misery of Typhoon Yolanda victims in the Visayas region.
The long list of celebrities that are being grilled online keeps on getting longer each day. Actress Sherilyn Reyes is one of them. Interestingly, Sherilyn did not post any controversial message on her Instagram. What brought her to trouble was a post she made about Organic Rice (a picture).
Ironically, anyone may not see any malice on it. But it is surprising how some netizens would find it distasteful. And interestingly, once a netizen makes the bashing, it is amazing how many others follow until the post becomes controversial all over.
Sherilyn becomes a victim
Sherilyn might have intended to share to her followers the wonderful new brand of Organic Rice she had tried. But some netizens criticized her for allegedly being insensitive to post about food on Instagram when many fellowmen are dying of hunger in Yolanda devastated areas in the Visayas.
But the actress obviously tried to keep her cool not to respond rudely to her new found online bashers. On the contrary, she disclosed that she helps typhoon victims without fanfare. She even wished her bashers good luck.
It has really come to this. Many netizens bash each other when they see posts that show food, fashion, and other subjects that could be considered luxury. Logically, local celebrities are easy target for this.
Bashers target celebrities
Several celebrities are now being actively bashed and criticized over the social media because most netizens think they are being insensitive in their posts. In the past days, Kris Aquino was one of the victims after Richard Gomez posted in Instagram a picture of the cheque donation she gave for Ormoc calamity victims.
Even Richard and his wife Representative Lucy Torres-Gomez were not spared from the wrath of netizens. That was after they posted what seemed like a selfie as they smile in front of a chopper that obviously would embark on a mission to Leyte.
Right now, Korina Sanchez is also taking all the lashings over the social media. She is now practically considered as an evil woman in contrast to CNN reporter Anderson Cooper, who is considered a hero for helping typhoon victims air their sentiments and attract foreign donations. Korina simply made the mistake of criticizing Anderson for allegedly not knowing what he says in his reports. Now, she is bound to pay dearly for it.
