A clip from Kris Aquino's 2017 house tour from her YouTube channel has begun resurfacing on Twitter.
The scene where The Queen of All Media and her son, Bimby, were talking about bullying and how the former said life is not easy for her kids because they are always bashed on social media.
Bimby, then only 10, recalled one of the comments on social media.
"People think like I'm a homosexual," said Bimby, who is now 13.
Kris, instead of discussing Bimby's sexuality, made the discussion about homophobia.
"Don't be homophobic, right?" the talk show host and actress told Bimby, to which he agreed. "That's the whole message and whatever your choice in life is, that's your choice."
Bimby, then, questioned why bashers would judge a child.
"Why would you judge a child?" asked Bimby whose real name is James Carlos Aquino Yap, Jr. "[W]e're still learning about ourselves and puberty hasn't struck me yet."
Some netizens resurfaced the clip from three years ago, praising Kris' parenting style that contributed to Bimby's mindset.
i have a lot of reasons to not like kris but her parenting isn't one of them. im glad bimby's growing up the way he is but it should serve as a wake up call that despite the displayed maturity, he's still aware of all the unnecessary bullying he gets pic.twitter.com/Pd4OFlTXot— quinn (@catradorastunes) August 5, 2020
Do you know how many gay, lesbian, and trans lives have been saved here? With Kris teaching Bimby not to be homophobic, not only does it save other LGBTQ+ kids from taking away their own lives, but also lessens the chances of them being hurt or killed by due to homophobia. https://t.co/pMfaKFP1o3— Scarlet Bitch (@ScarletBitch05) August 5, 2020
Others applauded Bimby for having a mature way of thinking at such a young age.
Bimby is a smart kid.— Epher Wanders (@epherfect) August 5, 2020
People, please educate yourselves about the spectrum of sexualities and gender identities. It is very important. And can we normalize teaching ourselves to be morally upright despite of the prevalent immoral acts in our society? https://t.co/bO26YvvcaK
