Why are medical frontliners calling Marian Rivera’s spaghetti “toxic?”

Many netizens found this funny as they explained that spaghetti is “toxic” for medical workers during their shift

  • Marian Rivera recently prepared spaghetti for medical health workers

Kapuso actress Marian Rivera prepared another batch of snacks for medical health workers who are fighting against the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) last Monday, April 27.

As shown on her Instagram account, Marian cooked spaghetti for frontliners at the University of the Philippines National Institute of Health (UP-NIH) and National Center for Mental Health.

Unexpectedly, her act of generosity turned into a viral meme online. The meme showed a screenshot of a news headline that read ‘Marian Rivera prepares spaghetti for frontliners in hospitals’ from a medical meme page.

To clarify the matter, some netizens explained that there is a superstitious belief in the medical field involving spaghetti. Having spaghetti or pancit during your shift in the hospital will cause you to have a ‘toxic’ experience at work as well as for your co-workers.

Meanwhile, a surgeon shared on Twitter that the ‘spaghetti’ is an inside joke.

Marian did not receive any hate comments but many netizens shared their funny thoughts about the “toxic” Spaghetti meme.
