Maris Racal recently answered the criticisms thrown at her by a netizen who accused her and Sue Ramirez of being disrespectful towards the LGBT community. This came after the two Kapamilya stars joked that they were in a lesbian relationship .
The two Kapamilya stars were recently criticized for labeling their friendship as a “lesbian thing.” Many people thought that they were making fun of the struggles that many members of the LGBT community have about coming out.
A netizen tweeted that they are losing the ‘kilig’ for the MarNigo love team due to Maris’ jokes about being a part of the LGBT community.
The netizen also suggested that instead of making humorous remarks about being in a “lesbian thingy” with each other, they should just come out if they really are lesbians.
The Tweep also used the hashtag #LGBT to rouse the attention of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community.
Acknowledging the tweet, Maris Racal calmly responded to the netizen by saying that she’s not in a lesbian relationship with Sue Ramirez. She also asked others not to make a big deal out of the issue.
“Ganyan naman po talaga kami ni Sue eversince naging magkaibigan kami. Nagka malisya lang po dahil sa mga emojis na ginagamit namin. Di naman kami nagalit, In fact po natuwa po kami kasi andaming sumusuporta sa LGBT. Pero wala po kaming relasyon. :)”
Maris also thanked netizens for being so supportive of the LGBT community.
“Nakakatuwa lang tlaga. Na amaze kami sa dami ng supporters ng LGBT community. Pero wag nalang po natin bigyan ng kulay dahil may kanya kanya din kaming nagpapasaya saamin. Hehe”
Meanwhile, some of Maris’ fans defended her by saying that she is just naturally sweet and clingy when it comes to her friends. Sue’s fans also chimed in by saying they hope the issue doesn’t affect their friendship.
