Does Prasertsri Kosin (a.k.a. ‘Koko Narak’) deserve to be deported from the Philippines?

There is some basis in what Thai national Prasertsri Kosin says about Filipinos, specially the part about the Philippines being home to a “dangerous” society and Filipinos being “afraid of one another” as well as the way his own Filipino friends are “also mistreated” presumably by other Filipinos.

These were among observations Kosin (who has been living and working in the Philippines over an undisclosed period) expressed as “Koko Narak” on Facebook using his rudimentary English skills. Not surprisingly, Kosin’s actions attracted an “undesirable alien” charge and is now in the process of being deported.

It is, of course, certainly difficult to excuse the other slurs and unfounded comments he makes about his “superior body” and how it may be infected by “the pignoy virus”. The key question here, however, is whether Kosin’s alleged crime actually caused injury or death. Philippine Immigration Law lists some criteria on which bases an alien may be deemed “undesirable”. Though the set of criteria includes various financial crimes, prostitution, and sedition, there seems to be nothing in that law that provides for insult or disrespect of Filipinos and their culture as cause for deportation on grounds of “undesirability”.

In any case, how does one measure the gravity of an expressed “insult” or show of “disrespect” to begin with? Different people interpret a message in different ways. A message involving a culturally-sensitive topic, for example, may be interpreted by different people over a range with bemusement on one end and serious personal offense on the other. Most likely it will depend on the size and health of the message recipient’s ego. People with unhealthy but big egos tend to quickly take offense.

It therefore seems that Kosin is being deported because a number of Filipinos (presumably those who reported him) felt “insulted” by Kosin’s words.

The subjectiveness of the notion of insult and this being a case study of how a message summarily deemed “insulting” to Filipinos is used as basis for punitive action is what makes the expat community in the Philippines a nervous lot. The following lament posted on the discussion thread How Easy Is It To Get Deported If You Are Not Filipino? on the online message board Philippines Expat Forum seems to encapsulate the general sentiment of the Philippines’ community of “resident aliens”…

What chance [do] we have if they will deport Alex Baldwin for an insult that he claimed was a joke Undesirable Alien Alec Baldwin Banned From the Philippines for a joke Alec Baldwin has been banned from entering the Philippines – just one day after the actor publicly apologized for joking about sex trafficking in the country. The country’s Bureau of Immigration has closed its borders to the star, according to a statement released by the government office on Thursday (21May09). Immigration Commissioner Marcelino Libanan says, “By being on the bureau’s blacklist, Baldwin is forbidden from entering the country as he is deemed an undesirable alien.”

In short, foreign residents in the Philippines are pretty much aware that simply harbouring an opinion of the Philippines could get them into serious trouble. In the case of Prasertsri Kosin, it is likely that a big enough proportion of the Filipino population would be insulted by his words. But that is precisely the point being made here. Is the answer to the question of whether or not the charge of “undesirability” will stick based on the percentage of Filipinos offended? Or will it be based on an evaluation grounded on clearly-defined criteria or rules?

‘Koko Narak’ has since posted a note of apology to Filipinos on Facebook.

  1. Will he deported back to his own country for insulting us through posting on facebook? The answer will be yes, thanks to the controversial Anti-Cybercrime Law in our country and that kind of act will be sued for an e-libel in spite that he’s telling the awful truth about the conditions of our country lately like Filipinos are being rude and undisciplined, issues on red tape and bad systems that we run here, corruption, etc. etc.

    1. Open you eyes and you can see it.

      I am foreigner leaving in makati.I always had very bad experienced with pinoy guys who I would like to make Friend or more relationship. When they ask me to meet each other, They are always asking me “treat me” “pay for me”, “I don’t have work, you should treat me? “you have work and hight salary, so better you pay” and ….. that make me feel bad with pinoy.

      If you ask foreigner who are working here in Philippines. you will know it.

  2. Aquino and his administration, are very sensitive to criticism…Filipinos are very sensitive , as a whole to criticism. It may be because, they have eyes, but refuse to see the Truth about them. They have ears, but they refuse to hear the Truth about them.

    Truth hurts, but it is the truth. Why not accept the “opinion”, and make it as a guidepost for improvement? But, No…they are hurt, and they don’t want to hear the truth. Especially from a foreigner…so on you go – Deportation, for expressing opinions…

    1. this is the problem with most Filipinos. they don’t want to hear and see what they REALLY NEED to hear and see. all they want is the validation from foreign people that Filipinos are great artists, etc. look around us filipinos, koko can be used as the eye for all of us.

      I don’t blame him because what he said is true. probably here in metro manila only. if I would talk this guy, I would say that he should have been more specific: the pignoys of metro manila.

  3. I thought we Filipinos are very expressive of our feelings and sentiments, and that was precisely what we have inherited from the 1986 EDSA Revolution, and same revolts thereafter. What is the power of the bill of rights, particularly that of freedom of speech, of expression, and of the press, for? His personal comment does not endanger national security, public safety and order, therefore should not be abridged.

  4. Wala yang Thailander na yan dapat diyan binabartulina bago sipain pabalik ng gay country nya. Dun sya bagay sa mga kauri nyang bakla

  5. So the really stupid Anti-Cybercrime law has passed… Congratulations Philippines. You just taught people how to post anonymously.

    But in relation to the topic, Filipinos get too easily offended by little things and it in turn doesn’t allow them to mature into proper adults. Because as sad as it may sound, pain is necessary for growth and maturity. So if you try and wall yourself off, it will fail spectacularly.

    Such as the case we see today.

  6. Just shows how vain and thin skinned these people are. They cant take criticism of any kind even though they live in a third world country.

    1. see how you state your case with the intent to insult at the end. this is an example of our thought of “intelligence” has changed.

      1. Ride on sister! Intelligent people say what is and what isn’t! If you think otherwise, you just can’t accept the truth…and you’re just butthurt! And what’s even crazier is that they call you Filipino!

        Ang Galing…….mang-asar!

  7. there’s objective criticism and then there’s insults. that guy clearly did the latter. i may not agree with the punishment but that guy was a real dick. add another +100 damage for that chickenshit apology. at least have some balls to stand by what you said when the climate was still comfortable for you.

    1. better complete the rhyme for those who are not familiar with it..

      Sticks and stones may break my bones
      But words will never hurt me.

      something to think about for those who are easily hurt by mere taunts

  8. Filipinos are simply not mature enough to take responsibility for their emotions. When they feel hurt, it’s always someone else’s fault. A mature person would not bother with those things because he is too busy working for his success. Isn’t this how Singapore succeeded, the way they didn’t give a rat’s ass about what other people say about them?

    1. So are you mature enough to be here reading posts and commenting on posts like this? You aint busy working for success? I don’t think so, right?

    2. Just so you know, Singaporeans are quite sensitive too. Try googling for the case of the Filipino nurse and the British Anton Casey.

  9. In the FREE WORLD, freedom of speech is respected and protected. In countries like North Korea, China and the Philippines, there is no such thing. Freedom of speech, like any Philippine Law, does not apply to “foreigners”. This place is a joke!

  10. If a fellow Filipino said exactly the same thing, other Filipinos, I reckon, if not all, will either laugh or shrug the insults off (i.e. ganyan talaga mga Pilipino…). But it often stings when this sort of words comes from others. I don’t buy into Kosin’s actions. At the same time, I’m inclined to think of what prompted him to say those in the first place and whether there’s a grain of truth in his diatribes. Is there anything we can learn from it? As a Filipino myself, destructive small talks about other Filipinos are commonplace, e.g. how incompetent others are, how ‘sipsip’ that colleague is, etc. That’s why, at times, when I disagree with my colleagues’ work, I find myself having to choose my words carefully as my disagreement can be taken personally, even the critique is well-intentioned and simply focusing on the work itself to improve outcomes.

  11. people here seemed to be confused with the difference of “insult” and constructive criticism. if you state the negative truth to belittle people, it is NOT RIGHT for any civilized person. there is what we call “social responsibility”. when you highlight one’s weakness to put them down…it is NOT RIGHT therefore not tolerable. If you criticize, without providing a suggestion, then your intent is to hurt. That is NOT RIGHT. of course it is not right as well to lambast him, people who did that is just as worse as him. if we accept these behaviors, then we set a society of hatred. what’s right is to be sensitive, to responsibly state our criticisms and disagreement. to choose our words. this guy deserved to be deported.

  12. I agree with the Mr. benign0. Let us extend our apologies to Mr. Narak for “much ado about nothing”. With the publicity he will get he might become a movie star! I’m all ups to Mr. Narak staying in the Philippines with all the freedom to walk our streets, lanes and avenues.

  13. If ALL things were set in clearly defined rules, then there would be an un-ending list of rules. It would be a perpetual burden both on the rule-makers and the people. The lack of clearly defined rules for moral behavior is simply and naturally addressed by common sense and morality. You’ve wasted your time writing this piece just as I’ve wasted a minute writing this comment.

  14. There are people systeatically insulting the British, the French, the Americans or the Russians everywhere in the web. However, they are not being expelled from those countries because they are intelligent enough to ignore them. The ‘persona non grata’ policy is ridiculous.

  15. Im a filipino living here in the philippines. What does it take for one to get deported from this hellhole?

  16. So there’s a chance Dan Brown can’t set foot in the Philippines after depicting Manila to be the gates of hell even if Bourne Legacy supported his claim and a lot of Pinoys were happy to be part of the film and can relate to the portrayal in the novel?

    1. I can’t wait if Inferno will become a live action film & it’ll shoot here in our country. Mr. Hanks you’ll gonna love this country for sure as long as you’ll gonna accept the harsh reality of this country like traffic, crimes, undisciplined people and corruption.

      1. Actually there’s no need for you to wait. The live action is happening around you from time to time.

        Honestly, I wanted him to elaborate his comment. I’m curious why he chose the term Pignoy? It’s the first time I heard of it. Does he know about the Filipinos march against Pork Barrel thievery? Is he seeing pigs whenever he saw faces of Filipino (politicians)?

        “wriggling cockroaches prisoned by Baygon”

        He must have seen a scenario in the Philippines depicting this. I wonder where.

        “your society is dangerous” “people in your country are afraid of one another”

        Apart from the mall “security” (the bag inspection), the trouble in the South shows this most.

        He called those who’ll mistreat him pignoys.

        His friends who allowed themselves to be mistreated by others he called pignoys.

        He called those poor people insecure with him for being rich pignoys.

        “it doesn’t matter u r handsome or ugly. Your blood is disgusted for me. I don’t even touch their body. I am afraid the pignoy virus comes to my superior body”

        He’s obviously disgusted of the pignoys and he simply doesn’t want to be like them. Let’s take note of the characteristics of the pignoys he got exposed into. But then you’re only pignoy if you allow yourself to be the same way you’re a brown monkey if you can’t prove the irate callers wrong. Filipinos should ask themselves now “pignoy ba ako?”

        Dang, everyday you’ll find someone posting messages worst than this by kapwa Pilipino like #ripmaryjaneveloso #ingrata #bitayinnayan #firingsquadforceliaveloso. Saan sila pwede ipa-deport, sa babuyan island?

        1. Omigosh, yes, Benigno. You should know that in some of our barrios, one gets to “find himself dead in the kankungan” just because he looks “siga” to some men there, or his car or motorcycle “damaged” because it looks like “pasikat” to them…..OMG!!!! I wanted to take a pic of our profs’ situation in the PRC, applying for prof license or renewing….either way…they sit on the stairs, on the floor, some (when so many) standing in front of the building, rain or shine regardless…..and publish it a national daily so that many of us will know, and to catch the attention of our “powers that be” but I am afraid that for so-called “rocking the boat”…. I might be punished in some way. Just the other day, they said there that they will close at 3PM without announcing it in the morning and they served many numbers to profs which were yet to be serviced. Nagwala yung isa. Probably, she came from a very remote barrio in the hinterlands of one of the provinces of the region. Probably she had not eaten much food, or probably not feeling well due to the heat. So, nagpatawag sila ng pulis and got pics of the woman. So, you see what I mean? So….how come they got to be so thin-skinned that one gets to be punished when he/she just wants fair, honest, quality, and prompt service? Not to mention “courteous?”

  17. It’s always entertaining scrolling through the irate knee-jerk Pinoy Pride reactions on news sites.

    The funniest was a Filipino asking what foreigners are doing working in this country in the first place, stealing jobs from Filipinos. Second funniest was a Filipino criticizing Thailand’s cuisine.

  18. Its not just our ego that we have to deal with. We also have this pesky coping mechanism called “utang na loob”.

    When we allowed this guy into the country, we, as Filipinos already assume that we did him a favor and he owes us back.

    This is a completely backward and provincial coping mechanism since everything in our society ends up revolving around “favors”: politics, business, foreign affairs and what not.

  19. This is an off-hand comment but…

    From the way he likes to take selfies of himself just makes what he did even more atrocious. This is why I rarely post pictures of myself, if ever.

  20. There is a reason for him to be deported not only from the comments he posted against the Filipinos…. His employer terminated his contract with the company. His visa is under 47A2 (PEZA) which is co terminus from the sponsoring company. So what is he doing in the Philippines without visa? Are we allowed to work in other countries without proper visa and permits? Of course not and will surely be deported as well if caught.

  21. I’m not sure about the criteria for undesirability is for this country but I like what happened here. A foreign worker so full of himself he does not know when to stop. He deserves to lose his job and get deported. He is not a citizen; he is here because of our goodwill and we expect him to do the same. We can expel him any way we see fit.

    For the Anti-Pinoys here who take his insults as constructive criticism, good for you. But I bet you won’t do what he did if you were in the same situation in other countries. (If you people think other countries won’t do the same thing we did, think again.) You would SHOW RESTRAINT in posting your unvarnished opinions for all to see, unlike this idiot. Common courtesy goes a long way.

  22. He is not being deported arbitrarily. He has opted for voluntary deportation. I guess he has no reason to stay in the country any more. He got fired from Cognizant based on their internal policies and his self-made infamy has given him an unsafe environment in the country due to the thousands of haters he has accumulated. It would be in his best interest to just leave the country…Personally, it is best that he leaves. After all, based on his own posts, he does not like our people, our food and our culture anyway…

  23. A mature society wouldn’t make such a big fuss over a few racist comments made over Facebook, much less deport the person responsible.

    That Thai man became famous over night because of this country’s onion-skinnedness, which shouldn’t have been the case because he didn’t deserve any attention at all. He could’ve expressed criticism of the Philippines without being such a racist cunt.

    And the banning of Alec Baldwin is really so pitifully pathetic that it makes the cunts over at Bureau of Immigration look like they have dragons stuck up their arses.

      1. “A mature society wouldn’t make such a big fuss over a few racist comments made over Facebook, much less deport the person responsible.”

        I agree with superlucky20. So you also consider Singapore as an immature society then?

        What do you think will happen if we say derogatory remarks about a certain race then if we are in their own country? We’d probably meet an even worse fate.

        1. You must understand that the Anti-Pinoys here are self-flaggelators to the most ridiculous degree. They wouldn’t know an insult from a valid criticism. They will cheer anything that makes their countrymen look bad.

        2. Why don’t both of you try to give examples for why Singaporeans have exhibited similar behavior instead of talking out of your asses so I could decide whether your retorts have any merit or not?

        1. What a quick reply. Congratulations. You want a prize?

          Yes that makes Singaporeans somewhat an immature society, what with the limited press freedom, highly constricted freedom of speech and some draconian laws just to impose order and discipline. But at least they have a well-functioning country, which raises doubts whether they still need these restrictions and draconian laws in place.

          The Philippines supposedly upholds freedom of expression, yet here we have a few troll comments on Facebook and Filipinos go crazy all over it. There isn’t even sufficient legal cause for deportation. This makes them very immature.

          So what’s your grand indubitable point?

        2. @Tyrion Lannister

          The grand indubitable point is you loose to superlucky20 with your selective arguments! Admit it, be a man!

    1. Hey, you asked for examples and I gave them. The point is, according to you, a society can be “immature” (whatever that means) and be rich and prosperous too. (“a well-functioning country,” in your words) If so, why do you people demand that Filipinos be “mature” when we can become “a well-functioning country” without being “mature” like Singapore?

      P.S. You brought up the correlation between “maturity” and a country’s economic development, not me.

      1. Yet you brought up Singapore, not me.

        Singapore is famous because of its economic development so any mention of Singapore naturally entails cognizance of its economic development.

        Why do we (who is this “you people” you refer to, whatever that means) demand Filipinos mature? Simple. The Philippines prides itself in being a kind of democracy that is supposedly “freer” or superior than its neighboring countries. If true, why the double standards?

        It’s hypocritical to pride itself a champion of democratic values, when all it takes for it to turn democratic values on its head is a troll on the internet.

        1. @Tyrion Lannister

          In your own words:

          “A mature society wouldn’t make such a big fuss over a few racist comments made over Facebook… ”

          Case#1
          Philippines reacting to a racist comment = “The Philippines supposedly… This makes them very immature.”

          Case#2
          Singapore reacting to a racist comment = “Yes that makes Singaporeans somewhat an immature society… ”

          “So what’s your grand indubitable point?” “… why the double standards?”

        2. You’re moving the goalposts now because you are cornered. So let’s go back to the original point.

          You said: “A mature society wouldn’t make such a big fuss over a few racist comments made over Facebook, much less deport the person responsible.” Your original point has nothing to do with economy nor democracy. You are just peeved because Filipinos got outraged when they were INSULTED. That’s the entirety of your point, nothing to do with economy nor democracy. (I just humored you in your economic twist but I still came out on top.) My point now is that people like you, which I classify as the self-flagellating Filipino, the ones who confuse (or willfully distort) insults as well-meaning attempts at help, revel at any insult that is thrown at us, especially by foreigners. You enjoy this because you like to insult Filipinos too and you crave the credibility from foreigners doing the same. Your statement “A mature society wouldn’t make such a big fuss over a few racist comments made over Facebook” is telling because you want us to NOT REACT to racist statements AT ALL. That’s unacceptable. That’s like you suggesting to a black person to not react if someone called him the N word because that’s “immature.” Let’s be clear, Koko Narak was unabashedly racist and malicious, and not like Alec Baldwin or Claire Danes who clearly didn’t intend to.

          You made a booboo by admitting that Singapore is “immature” and rich, though you were freestyling by that point. The populace being outraged by racist statements have nothing to do whether the country is democratic or autocratic. It has everything to do with the country being populated by humans and not robots.

        3. You said: “It’s hypocritical to pride itself a champion of democratic values, when all it takes for it to turn democratic values on its head is a troll on the internet.”

          What then are democratic values? I think you mean freedom of speech. You mean that Koko Narak can say whatever he wants wherever he wants. But freedom of speech does not mean you can say whatever you want and NOT suffer any consequences. It means that you are unconstrained in saying what you want to say. In Koko’s case, he used that right in that manner. But if your free expression goes counter to other aspects of the law like libel, sedition, hate speech, etc., you have to face the consequences. He obviously also violated something on his contract with his company.

          As I said earlier, he is not a citizen nor a diplomat and he is working here through our goodwill. And as such, he should “play along.” Humiliating your host country in a malicious and racist manner is not playing along, it is being belligerent. It is drawing a bullseye on your forehead. Contractors like him are kept on a short leash by law and it is justified to expel him in any way the government sees fit.

        4. @Dinosaur

          I don’t think you know what you’re getting at since you can’t even explain yourself in your words and have to copypaste what I said. Just so we’re clear, I don’t agree with what the Singapore authorities did. Just because Singapore is a shining example of a functioning society doesn’t mean we have to agree and follow everything they do.

          @superlucky

          Cornered? What is this a boxing match? If one is cornered, how can one move the goalposts if one is unable to move anywhere else? But enough of your nonsense…

          “Your original point has nothing to do with economy nor democracy. You are just peeved because Filipinos got outraged when they were INSULTED. That’s the entirety of your point, nothing to do with economy nor democracy.”

          Yet you mentioned Singapore which meant opening a new can of worms.

          “(I just humored you in your economic twist but I still came out on top.)”

          Wow how juvenile, thinking this is some sort of contest. Here’s your trophy.

          “My point now is that people like you, which I classify as the self-flagellating Filipino, the ones who confuse (or willfully distort) insults as well-meaning attempts at help, revel at any insult that is thrown at us, especially by foreigners. You enjoy this because you like to insult Filipinos too and you crave the credibility from foreigners doing the same.”

          I think I’m an expert on myself, not you thank you very much, so I know what I am or what my thought processes are better than you do. I wouldn’t presume to know what you are, but since what you’ve demonstrated of yourself so far wasn’t very impressive I’m inclined to have a very poor impression of you.

          “is telling because you want us to NOT REACT to racist statements AT ALL. That’s unacceptable. That’s like you suggesting to a black person to not react if someone called him the N word because that’s “immature.” Let’s be clear, Koko Narak was unabashedly racist and malicious, and not like Alec Baldwin or Claire Danes who clearly didn’t intend to.”

          The company he worked for made a good move when they fired him and explained why they fired him. It is well within their rights to do that. The Philippine BI didn’t even have legal justification to deport him. And to make a big deal out of this fool in local mainstream media is just pitiful.

          “You made a booboo by admitting that Singapore is “immature” and rich, though you were freestyling by that point. The populace being outraged by racist statements have nothing to do whether the country is democratic or autocratic. It has everything to do with the country being populated by humans and not robots.”

          For someone who presumes to know me or “self-flagellating Filipinos” (whatever that means) like myself, you sure do make a habit of missing the point.

          I think I made myself clear. Let me rephrase it to you in a way a simple mind might understand.

          Filipinos – pride themselves democratic
          (Singapore – no such pretensions)
          Filipinos to Thai – “Welcome to our free and democratic country”
          Thai comes to Ph
          Thai trolls Filipinos on Facebook
          Filipinos say “you can’t say that!”
          *makes a big fuss all over the internet and mainstream media*
          *deports Thai*

    2. sir thats pure insult,ill thank him really if thats constructive,it doesnt have to be mean.i agree filipinos sometimes tend to over react,but thats becoz they have been robbed of decent living and honor by their soul-less leaders,many times they’ve been looked down.the reason they are so sensitive.they are not priveledge enough like yourself,be thankful then.im really not sure if you would allow that kind of insult to your race or to your family without any provocation..GODbles

  24. One thing taht amazed me was the way Filipono’s treat each other. it is the most sickening thing I have eve rseen. I got treated badly while I was in the Philippines, to the point where I disliked alomost the entire population. BUT I got treated well compared to some of the shit I saw there.

    A Catholic country that doesn’t know the meaning of the ‘GOLDEN RULE’ sums it up pretty succinctly, I’d say.

    1. Care to explain the circumstances when you got treated bad and when you got treated well!

      The Philippines doesn’t know the meaning of the Golden Rule?! You’ve gotta be kidding! You talk that way in whatever country in the world and you’ll get the treatment that you deserve! Tit For Tat!

      1. @ Ping Pang, I could go on for an hour about how badly I was treated,Paying double at LTO EVERY TIME I REGISTERED a VEHICLE/applied for an International driver’s license.Getting set up to be robbed by a car salesman that had me robbed outside the bank the day of the transaction(that is an old one and happens to a lot of people.If you are in the RP and are going to purchase something that costs a lot of money…DON’T TELL ANYONE !).Catching the little Flip scumbag that lived in the unit next to me and mine robbing my motorcycle(I BEAT THE FUCK OUT THE KID TOO!) and finding out the dealership that sold it to me…..HIRED HIM TO DO IT!Sales-ladies scraping the UPC code off an item I was buying so as to triple the price(they were not even going to get the money!).
        I am just recalling a few of the things,OH and lets not forget the EU &50($ 1,000) that the immigration guy scammed me out of to get a 13A visa….that I never got.
        Listen P.P. I have good enough reason fuck a few people up, and could have done so easily.I even considered fuckin up the first filipino I met in my country when I left, but that person has yet to appear and had nothing to do with anything just mentioned or the 1,000 other examples of people trying to rob me or telling me ‘to go home’.The part that bothers me MOST? Filipino’s come to my country and get treated like everyone else….its the way it should be…but in the Republic of the Philippines it is surely not the case.
        ‘KANO TAX’ ever hear of that? I could go on but I am getting mad now, and it is not worth getting upset over.

  25. let the retard stay, he will open his mouth the wrong way, sooner or later it WILL happen……and then someone can have the fun of shutting him the fuck up,yes?

  26. Let us face some facts!

    1. Filipinos criticize each other non-stop but when a Foreigner has a comment they all band up against him.
    2. Filipino migrate for work to many countries around the world and in the vast majority of those countries they are treated with respect and allowed to express their opinions without being deported.
    3. When a Filipino nurse in the Dictatorship of Singapore made a silly comment I did not see any of you saying that Singaporeans were right to be offended.
    4. Most nations would regard Mr. Kosin’s comments as the comments of a retard and would laugh it off.

    The Philippines starts to look more and more like a joke when Alec Baldwin is unwanted and some congressman wanted to pass a law banning Justin Beiber for laughing at Pacquiao.

    This is not pre-school, grow up and be mature and accept criticisms even if they come from Foreigners.

    If every country would act the way the Philippines does when criticized 1000s of OFWs would be deported.

  27. Of cause he did some stupid and immature things. However the problem of Filipino with other neighbor netizens starts years ago. Read and consider some examples for yourself. Mostly for that page. Also see the date. You can find more on any pages about ASEAN issues.

    There were more of them that had been deleted. Take only ASEAN community for example. When Indonesia posted that Indonesian economy was predict to be one of the biggest 10 of the world in xxxx, there were some Filipino who argue it would never happen. Philippines economy is much more bigger than that of Indonesia. When Thailand said that there were xxx tourists visited Thailand this year, there were some Filipino said the number is less that that of PI. When MH370 lost or ex-president Lee Guan Yew passed away, there were some Pinoys that make fun of the situations.

    It goes on and on: Someone post something ->Filipino Netizens don’t accept it -> Crab mentality -> feud ->Victim mentality ->Someone post something ->Filipino Netizens don’t accept it -> Crab mentality ->…

    Why can’t Filipino netizens accept other’s success? Instead of thinking about how they can benefit from other’s success by joint-venture with them, learn from them, etc., what they do is ignore the fact/data. It seems like they think they are the ONLY country in the world (beside America). Yet when they have problems, like Chinese invasion, they would ask for OTHER’s support. When they faced with disaster like Typhoon Haiyan, many gov. helped them, like Malaysia’s and Sinngapore’s, yet it seems like that help didn’t touch their hearts at all.

    Frankly I don’t understand it at all.
