- A netizen sparks online outrage after dismissing party drug ‘ecstasy’ as ‘just a happy pill’
- He also called President Duterte a fun-spoiler and the Visayan people “baduy”
- His disturbing comment earned mostly negative reactions from social media users
MANILA, Philippines – A netizen who goes by the alias Nuke GSM is under fire on social media after dismissing party drug ‘ecstasy’ as “just a happy pill” and not really hazardous.
He also called President Rodrigo Duterte “kj” or fun-spoiler and the Visayan people as “baduy” or out of fashion.
The controversial comment was actually in reaction to the report about the arrest of radio personality and model Karen Bordador and her boyfriend during a buy-bust operation that yielded P3-M worth of drugs, including ecstacy.
The comment was first shared by one Dan Christopher who said he was watching the news on Bordador’s arrest when he took notice of the netizen’s reaction.
The full comment read: “pati ecstacy? napakakj naman ni Duterte. it’s just a party drug. hindi naman yan shabu. ambaduy niyo kasi ayaw nyo magparty kami mga teens na mas masaya. palibahasa those bisaya people are contented with barrio fiesta in their probinsya. hazardous ba ng ecstasy. it’s just a happy pill.”
[Including ecstacy? (President) Duterte is really a kj (killjoy). It’s just a party drug. It’s not even shabu. You’re too old-fashioned because you don’t want us teens to have a happier party. No wonder because those Bisaya people are contented with barrio fiesta in their province. Is ecstacy hazardous? It’s just a happy pill.]
The netizen’s disturbing comment drew a slew of negative reactions from social media users, who lambasted him for dismissing the drug as “just a pill” and not really dangerous.
“Hazardous ba ang ecstacy ? It will dehydrate you until your body becomes dry … Kaya namatay ung mga nagparty dun sa pasay overdose of this kind of drugs …” said one commenter; referring to an early incident in the Mall of Asia grounds where a number of people died in the middle of a concert, apparently from drug overdose.
“A neglected child? Or a spoiled brat… One thing for sure his brains has been damaged which is irreversible to treat with…” added another.
Others also criticized the netizen for generalizing Visayan people as ‘baduy’.
However, some commenters took pity on the ‘kid’ for his seeming ignorance about the dangers of ‘party drugs’ he described as not hazardous.
One advised him: “You really don’t know the consequences of these party drugs ??? Try to search bout the composition so you might have 2nd thought of taking it…”
Meanwhile, Dan Christopher’s post has gone viral on Facebook; earning 17K likes, nearly 2,000 shares and more than 5,000 comments.
