    Congrats lil shiv👏👏 I’m so happy for you

  7. Hi mods! Please censor the comments sections next time, especially when you have underaged idols included. There was no need for a lot of the things that were being said last night, and it left a sour impression in many foreigners about the filipino people. I don’t want to believe that everyone there is racist because I know there are a lot of good, positive Mainers as well. Love from Brazil~~~

  14. U even call us racist? Lol PH is very diverse perhaps most in asia. Filipinos love black athletes and celebrities even some of our athletes are half black also celebs like Apldeup of blackeyedpeas is half, My cousins in US are married to black. We’re just provoked here we just fought back. U know anything about Asia? Other Asian countries are way way more racist than PH just watch any content about Asia u will know what I am saying
