Volleyball player Denden Lazaro took to social media to explain why she refused to let a male fan give her an “akbay” while they were being photographed together.
KAMI learned about Denden’s comments from her Twitter.
According to Denden, she values her personal space very much.
She apologized if her action offended some people but made a point that she was not apologizing for valuing her personal space.
The star athlete also thanked her friends and supporters for backing her up.
Most netizens gave positive reactions to her tweets.
“Pinagbigyan nmn nia mgpa-pic ung tao! Akbay w/o permission.. hnd nmn po ata tama dba???”
“Being excited doesn't give anyone a pass to suddenly invade someone's personal space”
“nagsosorry na nga yung tao. kung di pa rin kayo nasasatisfy, di na namin/ni den problema yon.”
“You don't really need to apologize, sadyang makikitid lang utak ng iba at di alam yung personal space.”
“e kung sa ayaw nya mapatungan ng siko, tsaka di naman sila close ni kuya”
“Just to be clear po ano, bilang fan(s) dapat marunong ka din rumespeto. Hindi ho ba enough na yog pumayag ang tao magpa pic?”
KAMI agrees with Denden that all of us should learn how to respect the personal space of others!
