Supreme Court Justice Marvic Leonen‘s tweet relating to a “kanto themed party” is viral on social media.

He wrote: “Instead of pretending to be poor through a lavish kanto themed party, why not understand what it is to be poor and find ways and means to assist. To be poor is not something to celebrate by the rich. It is insensitive. Just saying.”

Though he didn’t name names, many online users believe he’s pertaining to actress-vlogger Donnalyn Bartolome, who actually did that for a vlog.

On a recent Facebook post, Donnalyn reacted: “Wow pati Supreme Court Justice associate? Bawal po ako pumarty the way I partied before fame? Sino po kayo para mag-assume I don’t know what it’s like to be poor? Supreme Court Justice Associate tapos di nag-gather ng facts bago mangjudge? What a shame!”

She then re-quoted Leonen’s post. 

“Who told you I never did anything to assist Sir? I celebrated my life by looking back at my past and not being ashamed of it. Did I pretend to be poor? Poor pa rin po ba sa inyo naka Bvlgari watch ako dun with diamond earrings and my imported P10,000 slippers? Mga nakaPrada pa mga bisita ko at Chanel, sadyang sa kanto lang kami pumarty at nakapambahay lang,” she continued.

According to her, the latter is ”insensitive” too.

“Para mag-assume sa past ko that this was not a reality for me,” she related.

“Pwede pong focus nalang kayo sa mga nawawalang mga babae and assist with preventing such events from happening kesa judging po kayo sa birthday party ng dati pang pumaparty sa kanto?,” she added. “para lang magkatwitter likes eh.”

Here’s also Donnalyn‘s full Facebook post: “Para sa mga Pa-Woke but are sleep walking. Kilala niyo ako, I apologize when I’m wrong but when I’m not, I will fight for what I believe in.
That kanto birthday party is my history. These pictures are proof. Yung minamata ako ng mga tao noon after ko umalis saamin cause I had no money, pati pagkain ko ng kwek kwek tinatawag akong poor. Pati pagsakay ko ng jeep. “Wag ka magkakamali na pagisipan siya ng cheap, wala lang talagang kaso sakanya kung magjeep” saan sa tingin niyo nakukuha lyrics sa kanta ko? I’ve always been so proud of everything I’ve been through cause hindi naman ako basta tumambay lang eh, nagtrabaho ako.”

“Wag niyo nadin pakeelaman yung cake na tutong kasi prank lang naman yun ng mga friends ko, wala ba kayong friends na loko loko? Noon pang meme yung cake yan na inside joke sa mga barkada ah? Asin ba at toyo pinakain ko sa guests ko para sabihin niyong poverty mockery? May mga milyonaryo na nagKakanto bday party because THIS IS THE FILIPINO CULTURE. Not a theme. Gusto niyo pabonggahan na party? Choice niyo yun. Walang masama sa simple o bongga basta afford mo.”

“Hindi niyo kasi tinapos yung video na ginamit ko tong birthday ko para magbigay lakas ng loob sa mga taong pinagdadaanan yung pinagdaanan ko. That there’s light at the end of the tunnel basta wag ka mag-Ggive up. That the key to success is to believe in yourself.”

“Noon kung makapangmata yung iba sa mga nagkakanto birthday party wagas(dami ko naencounter na ganito shet) now that I’ve suddenly made it cool by being proud of it at yung mga kanto party peeps are happy about it galit na galit yung iba? Eh yung mga mapangmata na mga tao nga dahilan bakit minsan umuutang pa yung ibang tao para makapagbirthday ng “bongga” kasi ayaw nila mapahiya, eh wala namang nakakahiya sa kung anong kaya mo lang basta nandun true family and friends, Syempre hindi yun yung message na nakuha ng sleepwalkers sa vlog kasi focus sila sa negative.”

“Bawal na ba maging ako? Nagpapakatotoo lang ako. Sino ka para pagsabihan ako na mali bumalik sa dati kong gawi? Sino ka para husgahan pagpapakilala ko sa mga new friends ko kung saan ako nanggaling? Sino ka para pakeelaman yung tutong cake giving friendship dynamic namin? Gusto mo makita kung gaano ko kahilig sa extra rice para magets mo bakit tutong cake? Manuod ka po ng rice mukbang ko.”

“I collected pics of me when I left home, payat na payat, kulang lagi pambayad ng bills at tuition fee kasi nga tumayo ako sa sarili kong paa. Mga bagay na di niyo alam kasi di niyo naman pinanood yung vlog eh. Nagsalita lang kayo nang wala kayong alam.”

“At sa news outlets po, wala pa sa 5% yung nagsabing di okay yung vlog vs people who loved it. You’re just shining the light on whatever’s worse for engagement.”
