Having a prominent look-alike isn’t always a good thing. And this  proves true to  someone, who happens to be a look-alike  of former Senator Nancy Binay.

On Monday,  Binay recalled how she was approached last year   in  an airport  by a father, who claimed to have a daughter, who has been bashed because she looks just like the senator.

“Tapos nakweto nya bigla sa akin na yung anak din daw nya naba-bash…dahil kamukha nya ako,” she said.


“Napaisip ako bigla na parang Oh my God  kawawa  naman itong anak nya.  Parang I  felt guilty… Parang i   felt responsible na parang na ba-bash sya dahil kamukha ko.”

This was one of the reasons why,   Binay, as she turns 45 next month,  has decided  to come out with 45 tips on how to handle   social media  bashing.

She has already posted   the  first three steps on how to  survive social media  bashing but said she also plans  to publish  a coffee book about it.

Tip Number 1, she said, is  to “Ignore trolls and bots.”

“Huwag pong  papaapekto sa mga  comment ng trolls sa wall mo. Nandyan sila  to get the worst of  you. Wag mo silang bigyan ng pagkakataon na sirain ang araw mo,” she  wrote on her social media accounts.

Tip Number 2: “Wag patulan and bashers  at haters.”

“‘Haters gonna hate.’ Yan  po and realided. Mahirap man tanggapin, pero normal lamang na may mga taong inis sayo. You simply can’t please everybody.”

Tip Number 3: Don’t hate  memes. Appreciate them, yet be mindful.”


While she said she found  the bashing  against  her “entertaining,” Binay said  other  people   might   take   it differently.

“Pero nasasaktan din naman ako.. (It’s ) how I handle the pain.  How you move on from the pain…”  the senator said in jest.

Asked  if she does not engage her bashers, Binay said: “Never! I will not give them the satisfaction.”

“After a while nga,  noong hindi na ako pinapansin parang na miss ko din,” she   said also in jest.
