  • As public figures, celebrities know to expect negative comments every now and then. Especially in this age where they can easily share snippets of their life on social media.

    But while it's true that they can't please everyone, what baffles us is how easily people pick on them online — including innocent babies and children who have no idea about the harsh comments they receive. 

    Just recently, actor Markus Paterson, 23, took to his social media accounts to hit back at netizens mocking his 5-month-old son, Trevor. Trevor is his baby with actress Janella Salvador.

    On Wednesday morning, April 7, 2021 the couple reacted to netizens who had not-so-nice things to say about their baby’s looks.

    One post from a netizen read (published as is): “Jusko po panginoong mahabagin bat ganyan ang mukha ng batang ‘yan.” This prompted users to reply with negative comments while others laughed at the insult.

    Janella and Markus did not stand down for the comments directed at their innocent child. That same afternoon, Markus uploaded a screenshot of the post where the netizen asked for forgiveness for his actions. He also apologized to the couple for bullying their son.

    “I’ve learned from this mistake and I will be a better person and be more mindful of what I say,” read part of the post.

    Despite the apology, Trevor continued to receive harsh comments and some insults were truly revolting. Markus could not help but feel distressed about the situation, calling out those who mocked his son.

    He also asked whether this people would even think of apologizing had they not been caught in the act.

    “The sad thing is, these people will cry about it claiming they’re sorry. If you weren’t caught would you have been sorry?

    “Hindi lang yun. 5 months old na bata. 5 MONTHS OLD,” Markus tweeted on his account.

    The new dad also shared another statement on his Instagram story. “Seriously what is wrong with you people? You think I’ll have mercy? For what you’re all saying about my son?

    “Tigilan nyo na anak ko.”

    In another tweet the actor wrote, “This is what we meant by, ‘Keeping him safe from the cruel world we live in.’’

    As a father, Markus says he cannot help but be protective of his son. While he's had his fair share of bashing, he did not expect that people would even dare to involve their son.

    “I’m not usually this vocal, especially about bashing. But my son is a different story, my baby boy is my flesh and blood and I would take a bullet for him.

    “I thought I’d seen it all, but hating on a newborn baby has truly shocked me. Imagine if it was your child?” the dad wrote.
