MANILA – Makati’s mayor, Abby Binay, said she received offensive messages for refusing to suspend classes in the city and called people who thought insults were fun.
In a Facebook post Tuesday night, Binay shared the private messages she received on social media for not suspending classes after the Taal volcano erupted.
The city of Makati is 94 kilometers from the Taal volcano, but was affected by the fall of ashes after Sunday’s eruption.
Binay lamented that she is on the receiving end of such messages, noting that this is something that most parents do not know about their children.
“This is just one of several private messages that I receive daily. I see the side of the children of other people who do not show their parents. What is most scary is that there are people who find this publication fun!” Binay wrote in his legend.
The messages contained insults like “N * gg *”, as well as other threats.
