In the middle of the public’s criticism , some of our lawmakers has urged netizens to stop the cyberbullying towards the alleged Ateneo bully student.
Galit tayo sa isang bully at dapat lang pero sa galit natin ‘binubully’ naman natin siya sa Facebook? So kung ganun ano ang pinagkaiba natin sa kanya?
We should never, never become the monster we seek to defeat.

We must condemn all forms of bullying. But what’s bothersome, though, is the vicious cycle of bullying. Bullying does not end by bullying the bully. It only worsens the culture of hate.#StopTheHate #BeNice pic.twitter.com/aBMOvS45I4
