- A netizen posted photos and a story of an Igorot man who was trying to get home by riding a bus
- However, the netizen alleged that the driver did not allow the Igorot to enter the bus
- The alleged reason for the refusal was the Igorot’s tribal outfit
A netizen has accused a bus driver of refusing to allow an Igorot man to ride his vehicle due to his tribal outfit which includes the traditional “bahag.”
KAMI obtained the photos and story from Dhrins Laurente Napeek via the Facebook page of Tambayan ni Berto Worldwide.
“Sya po yung igorot na hindi pinasakay ng driver ng bus dahil sa suot nya, kahit may pambayad at nakiusap si manong ayaw talaga sya pasakayin kawawa naman si manong, hindi makatao ang ginawa sa kanya,” the netizen alleged.
(He is the Igorot who was not allowed by the driver to board the bus because of his outfit, despite having the money. I talked with the man and he told me that he was not allowed. I feel bad for him because what was done to him is not humane.)
Many netizens also expressed their outrage over what was allegedly done to the Igorot man.
However, other social media users theorized that there could be other reasons why the Igorot was refused a ride.
"Wala naman masama sa suot niya! Yan nga ang dapat ipinagmamalaki natin dahil proud siya sa kultura nila," a netizen pointed out.
(There is nothing wrong with his outfit. We should even be proud of him because he is also proud of his culture.)
“Baka naman kasi po hndi bumabyehe ung driver dun sa pupuntahan ni kuya,” a social media user said.
(The driver might have not allowed the man to ride his bus because he had a different destination…)
