The Twitter war between Darren Espanto and JK Labajo may soon escalate to a legal battle.
In a series of tweets posted early this morning, Darren finally responded to JK’s (now-deleted) tweets explaining his side of the issue.
Here are Darren’s tweets:
Since pinost mo na din naman yung chat natin dito (which you’ve deleted),nung una hacker, ngayon edited? Pero nag appear sa mismong account mo? And even if I wasn’t the one you were talking about in PBB, hindi parin tama ang magsalita ng masama tungkol sa iba. @KarlosLabajo— Darren Espanto (@Espanto2001) October 22, 2018
Hindi ako lalaban sa’yo pagdating sa bastusan kasi alam ko naman na bastos ka gaya ng sabi mo. Wag mo rin sasabihin na tinuring mo akong kapatid nung The Voice kasi ang plastic nun. Sa korte nalang tayo magkita kung di ka masyadong busy. Sikat mo na eh, “brother”! @KarlosLabajo— Darren Espanto (@Espanto2001) October 22, 2018
The first tweet refers to JK’s deleted tweets where he shared screenshots of his private conversation with Darren before the issue was made public. Darren also mentioned JK’s stint in PBB, where he made comments about an unnamed singer’s sexuality, assumed by netizens to be Darren.
The second tweet is Darren’s direct response to a tweet made by JK, where the singer griped about the issue going public. The now-deleted tweet read: “again @Espanto2001 I tried talking to you in private but you started this. gusto mo bastusan tandaan mo bastos ako sayo.”
Aside from responding to JK, Darren also apologized for using the word “bakla” as an insult. He also called out netizens who accused him of having “fragile masculinity,” and pointed out that he has faced gay rumors ever since he was 12 years old.
I didn’t mean to use the word “bakla” as a derogatory term. I’m sorry if this has offended anyone. And to the people who say I have “fragile masculinity”? I’ve been bashed with this since I was in The Voice Kids (I was 12) pero wala kayong narinig. I’m 17 now, kakapagod na rin.— Darren Espanto (@Espanto2001) October 22, 2018
