AC Bonifacio, Awra Briguela, Riva Quenery blast by netizens for laughing at Blackpink’s Jennie’s condition

  • A supposed transcript of AC Bonifacio’s Instagram Live video went viral
  • The transcript claimed AC, Riva Quenery, and Awra Briguela made fun of Blackpink’s Jennie
  • Blinks got furious with these celebrities and slammed them on Twitter

Netizens got furious with Awra Briguela, AC Bonifacio, and Riva Quenery for supposedly laughing at Blackpink’s Jennie Kim’s assumed panic attacks during the K-pop group’s meet and greet event held at Samsung Hall in SM Aura, Taguig City on June 6.

Despite her condition, Jennie continued the meet and greet session and acted professionally.

An alleged transcript of AC’s Instagram Live video went viral, claiming that Riva and Awra made fun of Jennie who seemed to be struggling to breathe onstage during the event. The conversation supposedly went like this:

“awra: what happened today was so sick!
“riva: like jennie
“everyone: *laughed*”

Blackpink fans or Blink became infuriated and started to bash the celebrities on Twitter.

With the overwhelming hate they received online, AC, Awra, and Riva apologized and clarified that it their conversation was taken out of context.

“We are not making fun of Jennie to begin with. Nag-start yun as parang nag-English-English si Awra.

“Hindi ko tina-try maging funny,” Riva said.

AC explained they didn’t mean any harm for using the word ‘sick’.

“Kasi Awra was trying to, like, you know, as Awra’s personality, he’s trying to be funny, right? He’s trying to speak in English, which is funny… and that’s what we laughed about.”

Riva denied that they are trying to make fun of Blackpink’s Jennie’s condition.

“Ang sa amin lang talaga, hindi namin pinagtatawanan, hindi namin dini-disrespect,” Riva added.

Unfortunately, fans got more annoyed when Awra addressed them as “sensitive.”

“Kayo kasi guys, ang sensitive ng fans…”Aura said.

“Uy!” said AC trying to object.

“Ang babaw lang nun!” Awra replied.

Some netizens defend AC as they appreciated how she defended the Blinks and mediated between her friends.

Riva Quenery has already aired her side on a vlog posted on her Facebook page while Awra Briguela has shared his apology on his personal Facebook account. AC Bonifacio has yet to answer on the allegations.
