- Rica Peralejo made a sweet Father's Day post for her husband, Joe, where she mentioned life is not complete without a father
- A basher, however, found her comment insensitive, simply because single moms were alienated in her post
- The actress then made a lengthy response and lectured the basher on her life story, one who was also raised without the presence of a father
- She earned the support of many netizens after her statements
Rica Peralejo hit back at a basher who accused her of being "insensitive" because of a statement she said in her Father's Day greeting for her husband.
The basher stated:
"Di talaga kumpleto ang buhay na walang tatay" - kaway kaway po mga single mom na nagpapakahirap. Ayan problema sa mga preachy Christians tulad niyo. Kailangan may tatay kahit na iba abusado at gago, basta kumpleto diba? Dasal dasal lang di ba? What an insensitive remark coming from someone who preaches love and God's message. It's those no-brainer statements that show the real insesitive person u are."
Rica then addressed the basher and answered the points made by the basher one by one.
"Pasensya ka na if na-offend ka sa sinabi ko pero totoo hindi kumpleto ang buhay kapag walang tatay. Pero kapag nanood ka ng latest vlog ko ako mismo ang nagsabi na I did not grow up having a father and so how that was healed in me is to find it in my Heavenly Father and the people around me like mga kuya kuya. I understand your pain kaya siguro ganito ang comment mo sakin but the pain is generalizing on statement that does not say you are invalidated at all.
"I also never said na kapag abussdo at gago dapat may tatay. This is your pain talking. Accusing me of what I have never said. Ang again, I understand. So let me just pray instead for you, that whatever pain you are going through, the trauma you have experienced, the unmet need you have never received, God can heal. I pray you can see Him as a partner and husband, and your child/ren as the father they can look to for all their earthly dad can never give."
Here are some of the statements from netizens who support the celeb:
Solo parent here. Not offended at all. I recognize the important role fathers play inside the home and in the children's lives, but my 2 kids doesn't have a physical dad like the others, however, they are sons & daughters of the king of kings & the heavenly father..and nothing can get any better than that.
I don’t know what’s negative about this. People, just because Rica P is a celebrity… hindi na din siya ituturing na normal person. That’s how a normal person/wife/partner would react sa mga instances na ganyan! Kung hindi ganyan edi okay! Wag mong hanapin sa iba yung gusto mo para sa sarili mo. PERIODT!
Hahaha.....I have that moment too, di sila matyaga maghanap kung ano lang madampot yun na yun. Regardless of the color and the price.
