Jessa Zaragoza on Thursday publicly called out bashers of her daughter Jayda Avanzado after recently coming across life-threatening comments regarding the younger singer on Twitter.
In a lengthy rant she posted on Instagram, the ‘Bakit Pa?’ hitmaker said that she and her husband Dingdong Avanzado have been wanting to address the matter for sometime now. “Pinag isipan ko muna ito ng ilang araw bago ko ito pinost. Di na nga lang sana, pero tuloy pa din kayo sa ginagawa nyo kay Jayda,” she said.
“Naisip ko, talagang sumobra sobra na kayo. Pinagpasensyahan na nga lang namin mag asawa yung mga kung ano anong pinapadala nyong direct msgs kay Jayda, below the belt na mga tira, pangungutya, ilang beses na din nakatanggap ng ‘P***ngina’ yung anak namin sainyo. Never namin minura ang anak namin. Pero kayo, wagas ang pagmumura nyo kay Jayda. Para bagang kayo ang nagpapakain sa anak namin. Ganun kalalakas ang luob nyong gumawa ng ganyan,” she added.
Irked by the threats, Jessa chided her daughter’s bashers by exposing their identities on social media, along with proofs of their hate messages towards Jayda. “Iha? Sabi mo sa tweet ‘KILL THAT GIRL’. Tweet mo yan, although alam ko binura mo na. Ikaw ang nag tweet nyan. GUSTO MONG MAMATAY ANG ANAK NAMIN? O GUSTO MONG IPAPATAY? Iha? Alam ba ng mga magulang mo ang mga pinag gagawa mong ganito?! Di ba gaGraduate ka na? Alam ba ng iyong paaralan na ganito ka mag salita? Tweet mo ito iha, tweet na sinend mo sa ‘Nag iisa naming anak’ si JAYDA,” she said.
“Kayo ba ng iyong kaibigan [ay] talagang wala ng kinatatakutan? Kung di kayo takot sa mga magulang nyo, di na ba uso ang ‘DIYOS’ sainyo??!!,” she added.

Jayda has previously opened up about her experience with online bullying in a sit-down vlog for music portal One Music PH. “I was 12 years old the first time I experienced cyber bullying. I’ve gotten a lot of below-the-belt comments then, because I posted a picture that people reacted negatively to. Although I had no malicious intentions or anything like that, people seem to take it the wrong way,” she said.
“That was the first time I experienced slut-shaming, which is a very serious thing, and double standards. I think especially nowadays, [it’s] very common and I think it’s a really relevant issue right now. It should be talked about it shouldn’t be a taboo topic [because] a lot of people go through [it],” she added.
