Markki Stroem has always had to face assumptions regarding his relationship preference. Just last year, a rumor surfaced that he was in a romantic relationship with actor and entrepreneur Marvin Agustin. Markki denied the rumor but said that he does not consider the rumors as negative.
Fast-forward to 2021, the model is still facing the same comments from netizens. PEP.ph recently tweeted an article about Markki's new clothing line with an unfinished sentence about the actor's current preoccupations during the lockdown.
One netizen tweeted, "Manlalake. Beki yan" as a response to the post made by PEP.ph. Markki did not hold back and fully expressed his displeasure and dismay in his reply to the netizen's tweet.
"Why does homophobia stem from mostly women and other gay men? Please enlighten me. I want to know how long it will take before we can all treat each other equally."
The thespian also reacted to another post urging him to reveal his relationship preference. Markki called out the basher and imparted his thoughts on such behavior.
"There is a word called RESPECT. No one deserves an explanation about anything in our lives! Do not allow anyone to tell you what to do and not to do. I will not stand by this bullying. Hello from my parents house Waving hand. Have a wonderful day"
