Family of Karen Bordador appeals to the public: Stop the condemnation

  • Bordador family appealed to public to stop harsh judgment against radio DJ
  • They said Karen is kind-hearted and thoughtful in person
  • They are also calling on her friends to support her in her time of need

MANILA, Philippines – Even as she is facing preliminary investigation for alleged drug trafficking, the family of radio DJ Karen Bordador urged the public not to be quick to judge her.

In their letter to Rappler, Bordador’s family said that while they are against drugs, they are also hurting from the harsh remarks thrown against Karen.

“We, the Bordador family, are one with the public in condemning the usage and possession of illegal substances. But we find it very painful and hurtful to face the harsh words, cursing, and criticism made by insensitive individuals who do not even have a personal connection with Karen and our family,” they said.

Describing Karen, as a “kind-hearted, caring, thoughtful, generous and loving” person who would never engage in illegal activities, the Bordador family urged her friends for moral support by sharing the hashtag #KARENBORDADORISLOVE on social media sites.

“For those of you who really know Karen and our family personally, please share how Karen and we, as a family, have engaged in activities for the betterment of the community. Please help us encourage Karen by acknowledging the good things that she has done,” the family said.

“We pray to God for divine protection, justice and truth during this very trying time. Lahat tayo’y haharap din sa tunay na hustisya na galing sa Panginoon. [We will all face true justice from the Lord],” they added.

Bordador was arrested along with her boyfriend Emilio Lim during a raid in his condo unit in Pasig City last Sunday. The raid yielded an estimated P2.5 million worth of ecstasy, marijuana and marijuana oil.

She failed an initial drug test according to police.
