1 Celebrity stylist Liz Uy started the #StopTheHate posts on social media to respond to blogger Michael Sy Lim of Fashion Pulis, who now has a case of online libel and grave slander. Following her were celebs like Anne Curtis, Bea Alonzo, Isabelle Daza, Georgina Wilson, KC Concepcion, James Reid, Nadine Lustre, Solenn Heussaff, and Heart Evangelista. Check out what they had to say:
Anne Curtis: "In this time and age where everyone is so passionate about 'freedom of speech' people seem to have forgotten the difference between freedom of speech and cyber bullying. I stand with @lizzzuy as she makes a statement #StopTheHate"
Bea Alonzo: "Stop cyber bullying!!! @lizzzuy"
Isabelle Daza: "To support @lizzzuy I will stand by her as I have witnessed these rumors being spread with my very own eyes and ears. Doing 'your job' by trying to bring down someone else's reputation is just wrong! Let's #StopTheHate."
Georgina Wilson: "Today I am proud of one of my best friends @lizzzuy for standing up for an issue that has gone ignored for far too long. As public figures we know that criticism comes with the job but that doesn't give anyone the right to constantly cyber bully and post hate perpetuating false stories. I have personally been victimized by this blog's malicious reporting and bashing as I'm sure many others have and it is time that we all take a stance and bring awareness to this unethical and negligent reporting. Be responsible with what you post and what you support online. #stopthehate NOW."
James Reid: "Support fair and responsible journalism. Remember there are people who profit from your negativity and harmful rumors... and that's just messed up so... #StopTheHate #NoOneLovesAHater lol."
Nadine Lustre: "Let's all be responsible. No nega! #StopTheHate"
Solenn Heussaff: "In support of @lizzzuy's fight against online irresponsibility, and to those who have been victimized by cyberbullying, I encourage all of you to spread positivity and #StopTheHate. Boycott sites and individuals whose only intent and purpose is to bring others down by spreading malicious and made-up stories. #StopTheHate."
Heart Evangelista: "Finally! it's all too much #notocyberbullying I think as celebrities also it's our responsibility to teach or fans not to fight back but spread positivity...its normal to feel bad and sometimes answer back but at the end of the day the best way is to do what is right... #stopthehate" (PEP)
2 Jessy Mendiola and ex JM De Guzman seem to be in good terms! JM posted a photo on IG of him and Jessy with the caption "Wanted: I miss you. :) Ang paboritokongsakitsaulo. Congrats sa soap. :)" And Jessy REPLIED! She typed "Mas sakit ka sa ulo. Salamat." (PEP)
3 Miley Cyrus was recently honored at the Los Angeles LGBT Center's 46th Anniversary Gala for her work with the LGBT community. Her acceptance speech moved the crowd:
"The first day that I got to visit you all is a day that I never will forget. And that's because given the opportunity to sit in one of the support groups I walked away with a feeling of self-love that I have never been able to even give myself before. Because, you know my life until that point, I was subconsciously convinced that I had to label myself. Because everything in our life has to have a name. Everything in our life is something but I'm not a thing. We're not a thing. We're humans with feelings that change just like this weather—which we've gotta do something about, and I'm not alone.
"I was so moved when I first heard someone sitting beside me say, 'Some days I wake up and I'm the masculine version of myself and some days I wake up and I'm the feminine version of myself.' And that's totally OK. And the LGBT Center had the key to the lock on my cage and they set me free." (Cosmopolitan)
4 Robin Williams' widow says what killed the beloved comedian wasn't depression. She announced that his final diagnosis is the disorder "dementia with Lewy bodies." It's a progressive form of dementia that leads to a decline in thinking and reasoning due to abnormal microscopic deposits that damage the brain. (New York Post)
