Within hours apart, DJ Loonyo and Janine Berdin became two of the most-talked-about personalities on Twitter — bringing confusion to a lot of netizens.

Apparently, Janine Berdin turned a meme about a petition changing the name of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) to DJ Loonyo International Airport into a cover photo for her personal Facebook page. 

But it appears Janine’s move did not sit well with DJ Loonyo, forcing him to send a direct message on the Tawag Ng Tanghalan Season 2 Grand Winner to ask her about the issue. 

“Ma’am sorry. May natitira pa ba kayong respeto? May nagawa ba ako sa’yong mali?” DJ Loonyo asked Janine. 

Janine, for her part, responded by explaining she turned the meme into a cover photo simply because she found it funny. 

“Hala Kuya, It’s just a meme that I found super funny. I found it online. I didn’t really mean any harm,” Janine said.

She went on to ask DJ Loonyo about how the meme came to be, saying it was just a random move.

“Ano po kaya context ng meme? I just thought it meant to change the name of the airport to you,” she said. 

“Like poking fun. Super random,” she added.

Janine reiterated that she didn’t mean any harm and said she thinks people surely won’t think negatively of him because of what she did. 

“Really didn’t mean any harm. I don’t think people found it degrading to you as well po! :),” she said. 

She even offered to take the post down if he wanted to. “But if you want I could always take it down Kuya! :)” 

But even if Janine already explained her side, DJ Loonyo thought that it was still not funny as people started making fun of him because of it. 

“Nakakatakot ‘yung utak ng mga gantong tao. Pag kayo ginanyan ISSUE, HEADLINE AND BASH AGAD. Katuwaan? Tapos binabash and pinagttripan ‘yung taong involved?” DJ Loonyo said. 

“@janineberdin. Ur better than that for sure. God bless your soul. Weird sh*t,” he added. 

In the comments section, DJ Loonyo asked his fans to be sensitive enough to know how to respect others. 

“Kung wala kayong magawa, pagtripan niyo sarili niyo wag ibang tao. Maging sensitive tayo minsan, di natin alam pinagdadaanan ng isa’t isa satin. Ini-expect ko ‘yung mga matagal na or kahit papano nauna sa industriya ay kahit papano alam ang ‘RESPETO NA LANG SANA,” he said. 

Telling Janine to change the name of the airport to hers instead, DJ Loonyo said: “Pero para katuwaan sigeeee, Go lang, kahit iba na yung napuntahan ng KATUWAAN.  Weird shit!!! PANGALAN MO SAYO YUNG AIRPORT, Baka ikaw yung may gusto hindi ako.”

Janine seemingly took DJ Loonyo’s challenge lightly and made her own meme. 

Janine seemed to have felt offended after the private conversation between her and DJ Loonyo leaked online. 

“Oh kuya, if you really wanna talk about it publicly .. I really wanna know how you understand the meme. I just thought it was a petition to just literally change the airport name to you. It’s satire. It’s poking fun. It’s random. No one would actually take it seriously,” Janine said. 

According to Janine, she herself experiences getting made fun of sometimes — acknowledging the fact that it comes with her being a public figure.

“People use my name to poke fun all the time as well. Hell people talk sh*t and laugh at me as well. I’m not saying that’s what the meme was doing kasi it wasn’t meant to be degrading at all. But yeah, it’s what comes along when you’re a public figure. No big. Smile po kayo!” she said. 

Responding to Janine’s post on Instagram stories, he said: Sige po ma’am ikaw na tama, kahit pinagtatawanan, binabash, at nilalait na sa comment, KATUWAAN PARIN, grabe yung mindset.” 

“Ingat tayo ma’am, baka mag-boomerang yan sayo, Pinagdaanan ko na yan, nadapa, natuto at gino-goal mas maging better. Sana ganun din sayo, hindi yung pag walang magawa, ay manttrip ng iba,” he added.
