Former “Wowowee” dancer-turned-host-actress RR Enriquez has lectured an online user poking fun at her competence in English.
In there, the basher mocked RR’s English comment that read: “I must say that you handle it in a very Classy way!! You are the definition of “The One That Got Away” (heart and clapping hands emojis).”
The netizen replied: “NAM*KA RR. NAWALA KALANG SA WOWOWEE, NATUTO KA NA MAG ENGLISH (middle finger emojis).”
On Instagram, RR shared the screenshot of it.
“Thank you kasi kahit papaano nagalingan ka na sa English ko kahit super basic ng sinabi ko!!,” she said in the caption. “Pero naniwala ako na sarcastic yan, and hindi pamumuri since minura mo pa ako.”
“First of all stop being so stupid! My Wowowee “Tanga tangahan sa English 14 years ago was just a joke my gosh!,” she added. “But thank you if sobrang napaniwala ko kayo. Should I say that “I am an effective comedienne?!!?”
RR noted that ever since she was a kid, she loves making fun of herself to make people happy.
“I want to entertain them by simply doing stuff na nakakatawa!,” she said. “I’m not saying that I was eloquent in English before. Pero hello basic natin yan, nag aral naman ako sa private school nung high school ako… So kahit papaano naturuan naman kami ng English dun.”
She noted no one should belittle someone just because they’re not fluent in English.
“And don’t make fun of someone na trying hard mag English because they want to learn and improve,” RR said. “I admit hindi naman ako talaga super galing mag English but everyday I try harder para mag improve! Practice makes perfect.”
“And if hindi ako marunong so what? Pero yung murahin nyo ako for that? Yan ang nagbigay ng bahay, lupa, business, travel abroad with my family at napagtapos ko mga kapatid ko sa pag aaral because of that bobita sa English. So please stop bashing someone na hindi magaling sa English!!!”
