Korina Sanchez immediately changed the caption of her Instagram post on Sunday after being attacked by bashers who didn’t like her message being conveyed.
In her first post, Korina captioned: “IMAGINE. Lahat nagka covid na. Ako never pa. And Im ALL OVER. Thank you, Lord. Sadya akong pinagpala kase dami ko tinutulungan?”
(IMAGINE. Everyone got covid. I never have. And Im ALL OVER. Thank you, Lord. I’m just blessed because I help so much?)
Although she has already deleted it, several netizens were able to screenshot her post and share it on Twitter.
Here, Korina Sanchez was called by some netizens ’insensitive’ to people suffering due to the pandemic.
So, Korina changed the caption and this is what it says: “IMAGINE. Lahat nagka covid na. Ako never pa. And Im ALL OVER. Thank you, Lord. Sadya akong pinagpala kase baka nakakatulong yung may natutulungan din? Please bless and heal all those infected.”
(IMAGINE. Everyone got covid. I never have. And Im ALL OVER. Thank you, Lord. I’m just blessed because I help so much? Please bless and heal all those infected.)
Korina still deleted the post even though the caption was different.
In the deleted post, a netizen commented: “Tone deaf naman po Ms Korina.”’
