DJ Loonyo recently received heavy backlash on social media because of his statement about COVID-19 “mass testing” in the Philippines.
KAMI learned that the said personality, who is known for his dance videos, questioned if mass testing will work in the country since it is just “trial and error.”
He also mentioned that it would be pitiful for those who will get tested because it is not hundred percent proven.
“I don’t know kung anong gagamitin nila sa mass testing. Pero kung ano man ang ipapainom nila o ipapagawa nila, it’s a trial and error, that’s why it’s mass testing,” he quipped.
“Kaya kawawa yung ano, kawawa yung mag i-intake, kawawa yung mag-u-undergo doon kasi it’s not a hundred percent proven,” he added.
After receiving criticism for what he said, the prominent YouTuber content creator humbly apologized and stated that he used a wrong term.
He pointed out that he was referring to “clinical trials” and not “mass testing.”
DJ Loonyo also revealed that he has been researching a lot about the issue but he is open to seeing other sides of the matter.
“First off, I apologize for the wrong use of terminology in that particular instance. My point is not particularly about the 'Covid Mass Testing,' I was actually referring to 'CLINICAL TRIALS.' I understand that the use of terminology is critical so I apologize for any confusion caused,” he explained.
“Sa mga nagsabi po na mag-aral kami o mag-research, rest assured we have been doing that, kaya nga nandun kami sa punto na bukas ang isipan namin and we want to also be vigilant and see different sides of the picture para makabuo kami ng informed decision,” he added.
