Popular Facebook page RBreezy has come under fire from netizens after posting a rape joke online.
If you clicked on the ‘About’ section on the RBreezy page before it was taken down, you would find a warning posted by its administrators.
“WARNING: This Page Contains Videos, Text, and Photos that may contain nudity, strong language or material that some may find offensive. R-18″
After the warning is a brief summary of what the page is for.
The popular page claims that RBreezy is “a viral media production that creates, collects and passes on to you only the latest, funniest and most shareable content on the internet. Whether it’s viral videos, memes, Events or trending stories in the Philippines and other parts of the World.”
Indeed, the Facebook page was a popular source of alternative local news, trending topics, sexy pictorials of women and pretty much anything that might go viral. The page also says it’s a platform for anybody who needs a boost for their social media presence.
It’s all in their ‘About’ page.
RBreezy’s admin claims to have the ability to provide the following for followers of the page:
“Exposure to hundreds of thousands of viewers around the world. Promotion (including your social media accounts) to help you get noticed”
Clearly, RBreezy is in the business of exposure and controversy. However, their latest controversy may have sealed their fate.
Many netizens were furious over a tasteless rape joke posted by the Facebook page’s administrator.
According to Inquirer Pop, this was the offending photo posted:
Offended netizens wasted no time in voicing their criticism in what they perceived as a foul and misogynistic statement.
The quote read: “Hindi ka magagahasa kung eenjoyin mo.”
Any sensible person could see what’s wrong with the aforementioned quote.
Many agree that the person(s) responsible for the photo trivialized the whole concept of sexual assault. There was even a caption on the photo that urged fans of the page to tag their “reypis” friends, complete with hashtags.
Some considered the post to be a bit of harmless fun, despite its clearly controversial and unabashedly offensive subject matter.
Netizens responded by creating a petition to shut down RBreezy. The petition was posted on change.org and has since garnered 9,300 signatures – just 700 shy of the required 10,000 – as of writing.
Following the criticism, RBreezy issued this response to their “haters”:
