Dear Karen Davila,
First, I would like to say that I don’t hate you nor do I have any grudge against you. In fact, you are one of the few journalists I admire. However, there is no other term for your series of tweets this afternoon but this : cyber bullying.
Please let us not crucify people by association. The sins of the father or any family member should remain theirs alone. Divine Lee IS NOT Delfin Lee. So many people are saying she should be imprisoned. For what? If we follow this thinking, then your colleague Pinky Webb should have shared jail time with her brother Hubert when he was in prison.
Now, if we base this on WORK ASSOCIATION, YOU work with Noli De Castro who I am sure had some part in this whole GA-Pag-ibig issue. Does that mean that De Castro’s participation now involves you? The Ultra tragedy of Wowowee… Should you also be responsible for the stampede? Because you worked for the same station as Willie Revillame then?
Everyone… Please think logically. Are you all much more knowledgable than the court who issued the warrant of arrest? If Divine had some accountability, she would have been included in the warrant. But guess what? She’s not included. That should answer your question.
In the article by ABSCBN news online, Divine was asked if she was affected. Naturally, she answered for herself and for her siblings. She was never asked about the GA victims. She only answered what was asked of her.
I have only met Ms. Lee once. We are not friends but your tweets have so affected me to the point that I am now writing a letter. So much has been said about her —- how she countered this whole scam by donating to flood victims when in fact she has been organizing relief efforts way before this whole issue.
I guess the point I just want to make is this: however grave the offense, no one else should take the blame but the offender. Not their children.
