MANILA, Philippines – Aiza Seguerra said he won’t tolerate any form of bullying directed towards his wife Liza Diño, especially through social media.

On Tuesday, Aiza made series of posts about cyberbullying on his Instagram account. He first posted a screenshot of the Facebook account of the person bullying Liza, followed by a statement.

He said in the statement that people who bully others especially in social media shouldn’t be tolerated.

“These people need to be held accountable sa kanilang mga aksyon at mga pananalita,” Aiza said.

“Cyberbullying destroys people’s lives at kailangan natin labanan ito,” he added.

Aiza reiterated this in an interview on Tuesday, after the press launch of the “Maalaala Mo Kaya” album where he’s one of the collaborators.

“Siguro ang akin lang, when it’s my wife, it is a totally different thing,” Aiza explained about making a statement about cyberbullying. “I think most of us na may asawa maintindihan nila, ako tirahin nila wala akong pakialam. When it comes to my wife, siguro do’n lang ang ‘di ko kinakaya.”

The Kapamilya singer-actress also feels “responsible” over the bullying his wife is experiencing since she chose to be with him.

Aside from defending his wife, Aiza said the post is to serve as a reminder for everyone that “we’re all for freedom, but freedom comes with responsibility and accountability."

"If you don’t know how to be responsible and accountable with your actions, then I don’t think you deserve that freedom,” he said.

Despite the bullying they’re encountering as a couple, Aiza said they’re not discouraged to use social media. Instead, he wants them to be an inspiration for those who are bullied and are part of the LGBT community to stand out for themselves.

“Para sa amin kasi may sampu man mangutya, may ma-inspire lang kaming dalawa na mag-come out, na sabihin nila na dahil kay Aiza at Liza naging matatag ako, ang puso ko, kahit may nangungutya I will still come out. Enough na ‘yon sa akin,” he said.

He added, “It’s also my way of telling people who are being bullied na to stand up for themselves. ‘Wag nilang hayaan na mangyari din ‘to, and sa pamilya ng nabu-bully, ‘wag n’yo rin hayaan na mangyari ito sa mga taong mahal ninyo.”
