The Internet Reacts to DJ Loonyo and his #MassTestingNow response
Internet celebrity DJ Loonyo is under fire right now for his response to the call for Mass Testing in the Philippines!
So when asked about Mass Testing in relation to COVID-19 this internet celebrity had this to say. There was another quote that he did about which you can find below.
So obviously, he has the wrong notion. He could be trolling or just really unaware of what mass testing is and how it could affect the outcome of dealing with the coronavirus. Either way, the Internet has noticed which was also the reason he was a trending topic on Twitter today.
Check out some of the comments and reaction on Twitter by different Twitter users:
Can someone educate DJ Loonyo what mass testing is? He’s spreading misinformation about it and instilling fears among his followers.

[rant] nabbwisit ako kay dj loonyo naka-vape pa siya habang nageexplain with overconfidence (parang mansplaining in an way) typical cool kid na feeling superior yung views nya about social issues pero hindi naman nagbabasa

There were some positive comments/ positive criticism about the celebrity too…
Instead of bashing “DJ Loonyo”, let’s just use this Opportunity to educate ourselves.
What is MASS TESTING?
Hindi ibig sabihin Lahat ng Tao dapat i-Test. MASS TESTING = Testing more than 1% of the Population.
PH Total Population:
100 M (1%) = 1.1 Million.

Yeah, I just found 1 positive thought about DJ Loonyo thats not a fan driven account. Oh well.
Point is, maybe we need to reinforce education and awareness about what Mass Testing is and what it can do. Hopefully we can also educate “influencers” to help spread the word and not the stupidity.
