UPDATED on January 17, 2019, 4:02 p.m.: Bretman Rock has responded on Twitter. He wrote, "First of all, my outfit is so cute. And second of all, how will wearing that affect a student's learning, and why that picture I have cuter lewks lol."
Yesterday, Twitter user @ThePencilPushe1 uploaded a photo showing Leyte Normal University's rules on "inappropriate hairstyles for students" with the caption, "Is that @MannyMua733?"
The photo, which labeled brightly colored tresses and long hair for guys as "inappropriate," also included a section on "improper grooming for men." Underneath it were photos of men with facial hair, piercings, makeup (Where Manny MUA's picture was used), and effeminate clothes.
Manny eventually responded, "I've been tagged in this so much today...Yes, that's me. Yes, they're using me as an example of what NOT to do at school. A school having a problem with a man wearing makeup? Shockinggggg"
And people on the internet were noooot having it with the school's rules. One user replied to Manny's tweet, "I thought we left this bullshit in 2015?"
While another said, "it is inappropriate to SERVE looks at this school, u will be b expelled," to which Manny replied, "Guess I'm being homeschooled!"
It turns out, Manny wasn't the only YouTuber featured in the university's photo. User @aengelah revealed Bretman Rock was in it too, albeit cropped.
Here's the original picture:
As of this writing, Leyte Normal University has not responded regarding the issue. But @ThePencilPushe1 did post an update:
