    I am utterly disgusted and disappointed with the reaction of the UPLB students to the girl’s tweet. Although at first, I did not fully support the girl’s tweet, I find the reactions and the writer/reporter’s manner of treatment of the news totally unreasonable and way non-commensurate to whatever mistake the girl may have done. What could have been proper was to investigate what the girl really meant. Even without doing this, it is easy to tell that what is bad news to her is bad news to her, however it meant to her. Nobody has the right to bully her after that. In the final analysis, those UPLB students who reacted saying “putang ina, etc. ” are the ones who actually deserved some disciplinary actions. To the reporter, your irresponsible article may have drawn attention to you but no way does it qualify for responsible journalism unless you want the latter not the former…..
