Luis Manzano got into a word war with a netizen on social media amidst the Taal Volcano crisis.
He aired his reaction after receiving negative remarks from netizens over the alleged overpriced N95 masks which he sells over his online shop following the eruption of Taal.
On Twitter, Luis addressed his critics and advised them not to invalidate people’s efforts in helping the victims of the calamity if not posted on social media.
“With everything that has been said and done, do what you want to do 🙂 gusto mo tumulong and post? Great job, gusto mo tumulong behind the scenes? Great job pa rin. But never invalidate help or someone just because it is not posted online! Laban tayo Batanguenos ❤️ God Bless ! :)” he twitted.
Luis was also accused by a netizen of taking advantage of the calamity by selling masks online.
He aired out his side against the netizens’ statements who called him out over the alleged overpriced face masks.
“These were our suppliers’ prices 15 weeks ago, as well as global prices, so did we hoard ba? Nope! Nagtaas presyo ba? Nope! 🙂 did we take advantage of the situation? Nope! Nag iisip ka ba? Nope! :)” Luis stated.
A netizen later pointed out that the masks Luis was selling was not the basic disposable N95 masks and wrote: “Those are N95 Cambridge Masks though. It’s not your basic N95 white disposable masks. Even Amazon,Shopee, and Lazada sells them for almost the same price around P600-700.”
Luis re-tweeted the post and replied: “Exactly 🙂 thank you!”
The actor-host responded by saying that not everyone posts on social media when they help other people, which implies that Luis has been helping the victims behind the scenes.
He also quoted that not all help needs to post on social media.
