- Janella Salvador accused Elmo Magalona of physical abuse.
- Pia Magalona posted a cryptic tweet, describing Borderline Personality Disorder.
- In her tweet, she romanticized having said disorder by citing how the patient would most likely turn on a loved one.
Hours after Janella Salvador broke her silence and confirmed physical abuse accusations against Elmo Magalona, the latter’s mother, Pia Magalona, posted a cryptic tweet regarding Borderline Personality Disorder.
Although Pia didn’t mention any names, Janella did say Elmo has been seeing a psychiatrist. Netizens put two and two together and assumed whether or not Elmo has Borderline Personality Disorder.
According to National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), Borderline Personality Disorder is a mental illness marked by an ongoing pattern of varying moods, self-image, and behavior. These symptoms often result in impulsive actions and problems in relationships.
Pia described Borderline Personality Disorder based on verywellmind.com‘s definition.
“In borderline personality disorder, devaluation often alternates with idealization. They may shift from great admiration for a loved one — idealization of that person — to an intense anger or dislike towards that person — devaluation of that person.”
“just because someone is mentally ill, it doesn’t give them a “pass” to hurt someone. you’re a mother first before a publicist. as a mother, you should let your son own up with what he did and as his publicist, letting him remain silent, will hurt his image more. so whats good”
“May borderline disorder po si elmo?”
“you just romanticized having borderline personality disorder by citing how the patient would most likely turn on a loved one. mental illness isn’t supposed to be romanticized and stop making excuses and make elmo own up with what he did.”
“Wow. Reflects pano pinalaki si Elmo”
“If a 20 year old girl found the courage to speak up amidst all the bashing, I hope someone your age will be straightforward than posting indirect tweets that insinuates confusing meaning”
“PIA WAG MO NA PG TAKPAN ANAK MO..
KASALANAN SA DIYOS YAN…
KYA DI NAGTITINO MGA ANAK MO KUNSINTEDORA KANG NANAY….”
“Girls fall deeply inlove even to the wrong person and one is lucky enough to be able to let go of an abusive relationship before it’s too late. Tapos borderline personality na agad pra sayo . Me babae ka din na anak and wether it’s our daughters fault or not mali pa rin n saktan”
Elmo Magalona has yet to speak up on this matter.
