Last week, late Hashtag member Franco Hernandez passed away after he suffered an unfortunate accident in a boat friend with another Hashtag member. Social media personality Xander Ford shared his sentiments about the news on Facebook.
According to Kami, his post drew heavy criticisms from netizens, who bashed the social media personality after he shared the status. They cited that he only commented on the news as a way to allegedly promote himself.
Apart from that, they also noticed the “hahaha” on his status. They thought that it was an insensitive remark after the tragedy occurred.
To quote the post of Xander Ford:
“RIP Hashtag Franco. Naaalala mo pa ba man diba sabi mo pang hashtag ako! Kahit natatawa ako nuon dahil marlou pa ako nuon.”
“diba sabi ko sayo Hintayin mo lang ako mag Hahashtag ako. paano nayan brother hindi na kita naabutan sa Hashtag Hahaha pero Condolence sayo at sa Family mo.”
Although he said his condolences, netizens thought Xander Ford was seemingly insincere in his status.
The source gathered some of their reactions, as quoted below:
“Walang kasincere-an ang pag condolence halatang halata may hahahahaha.”
“Sana Hindi mo ginagamit yang pagkamatay ni Franco para mag mukhang mabait oh magpasikat.. Sana sincere ka sa mga sinabi mo.”
“kaya nababash eh laging sinasama yung sarili sa lahat ng bagay para mapansin sya.. wag mong kalimutang si Marlou ka, yan binigay sayong pangalan ng magulang mo tas basta basta mo lng binabaliwala at pinipilit na xander ford na name mo..”
“Kua xander dpat hndi ka na tmawa. Nmatay na nga ung tao tatawa ka pa. Masama un.”
On the other hand, there were other netizens who defended Xander and said that they shouldn’t be overly critical of him. Some of their comments were the following:
“Hindi ko maintindihan. Ganon ba kahirap irespeto si Marlou/Xander? Lahat nalang ng mga post niya may nangbabash.”
“Wag po kau masyadong judgemental Kay xander dhil d nmn lht ng tao perpekto bka perpekto ba kau? Pinanganak ba kau para maging perpekto dba hnd..”
