Netizens took to Twitter and defended Bimby.

This netizen notes Bimby’s gestures as his “Kris Aquinofication,” which implies that he got his mother’s mannerisms.

Then, this netizen urged the public to let the 13-year-old boy be and stop picking on Bimby.

After that, this netizen chided those who assumed Bimby’s sexuality, urging others to think progressively since it is 2021 already.

Also, these netizens called out others, noting that it’s not their business to question Bimby’s orientation.

Host and social media influencer Macoy Dubs also defended Bimby, noting that the Philippines still has a long way to go.

Miss TransGlobal 2020 Mela Habijan also defended Bimby, urging people to let the boy enjoy his childhood.

This netizen also called out members of the LGBTQIA+ community and allies who are putting malicious intent on Bimby’s gestures.

In an Instagram post on Sunday, March 7, Kris Aquino defended her children after they became targets of damaging comments online over the past week. She also gave a warning to her detractors on that they were “pushing [her] in the direction [they] are so obviously afraid [she] will take” by dragging her two sons into controversies and subjecting them to harassment.

It’s not our place to dictate Bimby’s orientation. In fact, he just sent flowers to Miles Ocampo this past Valentine’s day. Earlier, he also said that he has a crush on Julia Barretto.

So dictating someone’s orientation because of gestures is an outdated idea. Nowadays, we have resources available to educate ourselves. We should use it to avoid damaging a minor’s developing psyche just because of mannerisms.

In Bimby’s own words, “Why would you judge a child?” And just as Kris said, “don’t be homophobic.”
