A Filipina living in the United States is currently being roasted on the internet after she expressed her insulting opinion about Filipino call center agents. Facebook user Jhenny Gacasa, who is the current subject of hate of Pinoy netizens, took to Facebook to rant about Filipinos’ accents, their inability to speak fluent English, and their English accents. The post read:
“Bring call center back to America!!!! Employ 100% Fluent speakers. I can tell by the accent that they are from out of states and some are from the Philippines, its so frustrating because they CAN speak ENGLISH but DOESN’T seem to understand the problem or the issue.”
This woman claimed to be frustrated because she has been on the phone for an hour and “it suck.”
“It is ABUSED OF MY TIME to be on the phone for freaking 1 hr and it suck!! MAKA ENGLISH LANG..TANGA NAMAN, KAASAR!”
Her post took the social media by storm. However, it seemed that most netizens weren’t delighted by her opinion which was full of grammatical errors as well. Instead of receiving sympathy from the netizens, she ended up getting a taste of her own medicine. Some netizens deemed her as a “try hard American” for posting such a poorly constructed opinion.
Here’s what some of them had to say to Jhenny:
“Nakatapak lang sa amerika akala mo kana na, mali naman mag English… kapal ng mukha mo dai! Dapat masampal yan tingnan natin ano isisigaw, malamang ARAY!”
“She cannot even get her grammar right… pathetic..”
“Please correct your grammar Jhenny before you insult others”
On the other hand, a netizen thought that it is “only a white man or a foreigner has the right to complain over Filipinos’ failings.”
Here are the comments from the netizens:
