Joey de Leon's tweet on Nepal earthquake earns strong criticism online

SHARE:

Filipino veteran comedian jokes about Nepal earthquake and draws flak online. Was it too soon to joke about? Or, simply it was not right at all to laugh at the thousand deaths?

A very tragic event happened in Nepal last April 26 when magnitude 7.8 earthquake jolted the country which as of the moment has a a death toll count of about 4,310 and might still be increasing as per Prime Minister Sushil Koirala, the number of deaths could possibly reached 10,000.

According to the recent reports, 8 million people in 39 districts are seriously affected by the massive earthquake.

People, different governments and organizations from all over the world furiously pouring help without any second thoughts. Many are willing to reach out their helping hands at times like this.

However, one tweet draws flak:

(To those who were buried in the highest point in the world due to avalanche because of the earthquake in Nepal, may you EVEREST IN FREEZE!)

TV show host and veteran comedian Joey de Leon made a joke which some netizens found distasteful because it was insensitive to say and the timing was off.

Joey's tweet joke was aired just right after the earthquake hit Nepal when the avalanche due to aftershock occurred in Mt. Everest.

Some people appreciated what Joey wanted to say, but most of them also agreed that it was too soon to joke about.

Joey answered back the criticisms from the comments section with follow-up tweets.


(Why is it like this on Twitter, if they don't get the joke or if they failed to think of the entry, you'll be nonsense. I just condoled.)

(To the "righteous" out there: Do not talk to me about respect for the dead. Talk to the creators of The Walking Dead and Vampire series!)
