It seems Jake Zyrus has really found confidence and self-worth in his gender expression. See, he is now comfortable enough to post a photo of him having a grand time at the beach – topless. It is apparent in the picture how for once, Jake Zyrus is happy to show the world who he really is.
Sadly, though, some netizens took this as a cue to bash him once more, and to provide unsolicited comments about his life choices. Here are some of the negative comments his photo received:
“Ang masama sa ginawa mo jake zyrus e yong iniba mo yong ibinigay ng dios na kataohan mo bilang bbae.para bang hindi muna iginalng dios na inilikha ka bilang bbae..pasinsiya ka kung maraming tao ang hindi nkkaintindi sayo.”
“masagwa talaga eh di tulad ng bakla medyo ka tangap tangap at tsaka may mga tibo naman na di tulad ng pananaw at paniniwala mo jake zyrus. GOD BLESS nalang sayo!”
In an interview with DJ JhaiHo, Jake Zyrus addressed his bashers and said he simply posted the photo because he was having a good time, and he was just showing who he truly was.
“I have the right to do it like everybody else,” he further explained. “If you want to post a photo na alam mong confident ka, na alam mong proud ka, then why not.”
Still, Jake admitted he understood why some people would get shocked by a photograph such as his: “Naiintindihan ko po yun na parang medyo wild para sa kanila to see a trans man na nakatopless.”
Despite all the hate he’s getting, there are some who chose to support him:
“Ginawa lng nman nya..Kung anong magpapasaya At nagpakatotoo lng nman si JAKE.
Ang problema lng kc sa mga ibang tao,napaka mapanghusga,na akala nila ipinanganak silang perpekto. no body’s perfect sabi nga nila. Kya sna erespeto nlang naten,kung ano sya ngayon.”
“Just ignore s mga taong yaw sua jz and focus knalng s mga taong nag nagma2hal sua at d2 lng nag family jaketers hnd k nmin i2wn go go go lng idol gawin m kung Saan k masya marami kming nagma2hal sau”
