MANILA, Philippines — Kapamilya actor and novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) survivor Christopher de Leon came to the defense of his “Love Thy Woman” co-star Kim Chiu after the actress was bashed on social media for her "Classroom Analogy” Facebook live video in which she tried to compare ABS-CBN's shutdown to classroom rules. 

The video has since become a viral meme and has been edited into a "Bawal Lumabas" remix by different Internet users.

 

“Kim is like a ray of sunshine sa tuwing dumarating sa set.  Always smiling.  Ngiting abot-tenga- kitang –kita sa mga mata.  Napakagaan kasama. She’s somebody who’s always eager to learn.  She never CLAIMED to be outstanding on anything,” Christopher said on Instagram.

“Ang laging niyang pinaghuhugutan ay ang personal experiences niya… lagi siyang nagsi-share ng part of herself each one of us. Very warm , very personal and for that I Love KIM,” he added.

Likewise, Kim’s real and reel-life partner Xian Lim came to her rescue.

“A few days ago, a couple of artists went live on social media and received numberous amount of hate. Let me say this, It takes a whole lot of guts to face millions of people and fight for what you truly believe in. Most people won't even have that opportunity in their lifetime,” Xian said.

“Kim does not deserve to be singled out and get all the hate she is getting from people in the internet. She is a smart, empathetic person who deeply cares for all the people around her. She cares so much that it scares me.”

Xian pleaded people to stop putting other people down because it does not help in the current situation everyone is in.

“We are not perfect. No one is. We have our share of mishaps that shake us down to the ground but we learn and we rise back up again. My love and support goes out to Kim for being a wonderful human being.”
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Here's my two cents on everything that's happening right now. . We hit the 11K+ mark of positive cases in our country. People are STILL getting sick and dying all over the world. 5th of May, ABS-CBN went dark under the orders of the government. Now, I am not here to give my opinion on who I think is right or wrong. I do not have the educational background in this field or enough facts to support any claims but what I do have is my observation on what our society has become. . Amidst the Pandemic, people are throwing hurtful words back and forth hoping that an issue will be resolved through insults, rage, hate, fake news etc. . With all the second hand information going around, it turned us all into critics and so-called experts. No need to say much about that. . A few days ago, a couple of artists went live on social media and received numberous amount of hate. Let me say this, It takes a whole lot of guts to face millions of people and fight for what you truly believe in. Most people won't even have that opportunity in their lifetime. . Kim does not deserve to be singled out and get all the hate she is getting from people in the internet. She is a smart, empathetic person who deeply cares for all the people around her. She cares so much that it scares me. . We are not perfect. No one is. We have our share of mishaps that shake us down to the ground but we learn and we rise back up again. My love and support goes out to Kim for being a wonderful human being. . Lastly, tigilan na natin ang paninira sa kapwa dahil hindi ito nakakatulong sa sitwasyon ngayon. Tulungan nalang natin ang isat isa sa kahit anong paraan at tigilan na ang pininisi at paninira kay ganito't ganyan. Hindi perpekto ang systema. Hindi perpekto ang mundo. . We have little time in our hands. It's really a matter of asking yourself how well you want to be remembered when your time is up.

Kim has previously addressed her bashers, saying on Instagram that she, too, did not understand what she said in the video.

"Sa sinabi tungkol sa 'classroom', nung binasa ko, hindi ko din naintindihan. Haha???? pareho lang tayo! ???????? parang pagpapasara lang ng ntc sa abs di maintindihan. Okay po. Sensya na!????????? Nadala lang ng bugso ng damdamin. sa dami ng sinabi ko yun lang talaga ang napansin nyo?. kahit ano paman ang sabihin nyo OKAY LANG PO basta #LABANKAPAMILYA"
