In a series of tweets, comedienne Marietta Subong popularly known as Pokwang criticized Ex-Pinoy Big Brother(PBB) housemate-turned-vlogger Baninay Bautista for not clearly indicating in her recent vlog about being Covid-19 positive was a late upload.
On Tuesday, August 18, Baninay shared a link on Twitter about her recent Youtube post with a caption, “I AM POSITIVE.”
The Batangueña Youtuber discloses in her vlog that she tested positive for Corona Virus Disease along with her boyfriend, fellow vlogger Bont Oropel who recently lost his father due to covid-19, other family members tested positive as well.
On Wednesday, August 19, Pokwang lashed out towards an unidentified vlogger whom she said has already recovered from the disease last August 02, but just recently released the video about her ordeal.
“dahil sa vlog mo nag panic kmi p*tah ka! e late upload naman yan at negative naman result mo last aug.2!! Wag mong gawin pagkaperahan yang nag ka covid ka may nalalaman kapa na update update sa mga ganap sayo e negative na nga diba? nangdamay kapa ng nerbios at gastos!”, Pokwang tweeted.
Later on, Pokwang directly identified Baninay whom she said guested on her new TV5 show last August 16. According to Pokwang, Baninay tested positive for Covid-19 last July 21 but was able to recover and tested negative on August 02.
“Hoy Baninay wag mong pagkaperahan yang clickbait mo para lang dumami views mo! negative kana diba last aug.2?? july 21 ka nagkasakit tapos aug.2 ok kana negative kana! Aug.16 naglaro ka samin nagpanic kmi kanina dahil di mo sinabi sa vlog mo na late upload nayan! pa trending ka!”
“Hindi mo alam ang panic na ginawa mo samin Baninay! may anak ako at nanay na 80yrs old! sana sinabi mo agad sa vlog mo na nag negative kana last aug.2 dahil aug.16 nag guest ka sa gameshow! hindi mo alam pakiramdam ng isang ina na sobrang nag aalala sa ganitong pandemic!”
“sa ganitong panahon maging responsableng vlogger naman! hindi yung puro pera pera lang… wag ganon!!!!!”
Meanwhile, Barako PH team checked the controversial Baninay Youtube vlog and it has an edited pinned comment. “This is filmed july 21,2020”
“I DO NOT TOLERATE ANY KIND OF DISCRIMINATION TO COVID PATIENTS, FRONTLINERS & EVEN SURVIVORS. This is one of the main reasons why we delayed the upload of our videos. We waited until everything went well.”
In another tweet Baninay stated that they have already settled things in private.
“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.”
