This is the initial reaction of Atty. Nick Nangit, a known pro-Duterte influencer to the revelation of Tokyo Olympics gold medalist Hidilyn Diaz that she’s facing another funding issues for her training.
ICYMI, the Philippines 1st and lone gold medalist in the Tokyo Olympics is training for the 2024 Paris Olympics and once again, she ran to her mainstream media friends and told them about her funding issues.
While some Pinoys are sympathetic to her cause, some Pinoy netizens, especially the so-called pro-Duterte crowd, including Atty. Nick Nangit are sending strong message to Hidilyn to not expect financial help, even sympathy from them.
In a Facebook post, Atty. Nick asked Ms. Hidilyn Diaz how come she is having funding issues in light of the many incentives she received that most ordinary Pinoys can only dreamed of after delivering the Philippines 1st Olympic gold medal?
Where did all your money go? What are your expenses? Are the financial support the government give you for your training not enough? Atty. Nick asked.
Why not talk to the PSC first ( instead of taking your case to socmed)? Or better yet, ask financial help from your Ninang (Leni)?
Atty. Nick’s FB followers took the cue from him and did not respond positively to Hidilyn Diaz’s appeal for financial help. Instead, Pinoy netizens made hurtful remarks towards the Tokyo gold medalist in weightlifting.
“Its not enough. She wants more!!!! Dilawan move…..” wrote one person.
“Nung nanalo ka parang hindi ka man lang nagpasalamat sa pamahalaan. Pag sure diha dzae anak ka ng NINANG mo” another person took this as an opportunity to reproach Diaz for being an ingrate.
“Naging mukhang pera na cya. Magpa sponsor ka sa angat buhay ni lenifink. Di ba Kakampink ka… ” commented another.
This netizen enumerated all the reasons why she is not a fan of Hidilyn Diaz from the get go.
From the start, I dont like her. True blooded dilawan yan! Puro angal sa gobyerno. May sweldo yan sa AFP plus sa other govt agencies,pwera pa sa mga sponsors. Kulang pa din? Hindi kc dilawan nakaupo kaya puro angal. Buti pa si Alex Eala, nagtagalog sa speech, walang angal kahit gumagastos din ng sariling pera ang pamilya.
Finally, this netizen held no punches in criticizing Hidilyn Diaz for asking money for her training.
Best talent talaga nya ang hingi dati pa yan duterte admin pa. Mahilig sa online limos
You may now read Atty. Nick’s original FB post below.
Ang dami mo nang tinanggap na hindi kikitain ng pangkaraniwang mamamayan, tapos may problema ka pa rin sa pondo? Saan napunta ang kaperahan mo, at ano ba pinagkakagastusan mo? Kulang pa ba ang suportang pinansiyal na ibinibigay ng pamahalaan sa iyong training?
Bakit hindi ka makipag-ugnayan muna sa PSC (imbes na sa socmed agad), o kaya hingi ka na lang kay la loba negra o sa ninang mong sinasamba ng mga insekto! Kaloka!!!
