While freedom of expression is a guarantee of the constitution, that doesn’t mean that it is absolute.

Just like how conflicting rights and interests are settled, one’s ability to express ends when that person harms others.

Government institutions adjudicate on issues about rights and freedoms to make sure that everyone will be able to make the most out of it.

This is why we have laws that prohibit speech that derogates and defame someone. Government institutions and organizations have initiatives promoting responsible exercise of these rights including the right to free speech.

In the world where everything seems to have been swallowed by social media, we are expected to extend the same precautions on saying what we think about things unless we want to be heavily criticized for being so irresponsible.

This is exactly what happened to this netizen who irresponsibly posted something at a wrong time and is directed to a wrong person.
