The earthquake in Visayas was the biggest story of the day. But an unknown Pinoy suddenly rose to online famefor the wrong reason.
 
Apart from the hashtags #PrayforPH and #earthquake as trending topics on Twitter Philippines, an unfamiliar name, that of a certain Ahcee Flores, was in the list too.
 
What did Ahcee Flores do?
 
Apparently, "Ahcee Flores" posted a comment in Yahoo! Philippines' news story about the earthquake and wished Visayans ill.

“Let us all pray……. Na matuloy ang tsunami para maraming bisaya ang mamatay, para mabawasan ang mga baduy sa pilipinas [I hope the tsunami pushes through so people from Visayas will die..so the outdated will cease].”
 
Immediately, netizens slammed the hateful comment "by Ahcee Flores", with hate pages against her all over Facebook.Meanwhile, some users have also mobilized and put up a page to throw in their support for the user.
 
User Anuelle asks her ‘Anong klase kang Pilipino!’ while Holly hits her by posting, “You're as ugly as the words you've spoken. If you can't take the heat for the things you've said, don't post it for the world to see.”
 
A user named Desan James Rosal meanwhile expressed his anger by posting this comment: “@ Achee Flores alam mo ba kung ano ang sinasabi mo? Pinag dasal mo ang aming kapahamakan dito...”
 
User Laurence on the other hand chooses to be passive by saying, “wag na lang pansinin walang magawa sa buhay kaya ganyan.”
 
Some users even posted threats against Ahcee Flores.
 
The outrage against Ahcee Flores isn’t just on Yahoo! Philippines but on Twitter as well.  @icekendy writes “Ahcee Flores must have had a very bad experience with a Bisaya in the past, thus turned her into this monstrous character we all see now” while @jrcastro_castro03 asks people not to give Ahcee Flores ‘the attention that she asks.’
 
@Posh_Post tweets “Ahcee Flores may be a really sad person” while @CHORVALoOo speaks her mind by posting “We were all scared to death from the #earthquake. Pero ikaw Ahcee Flores nakuha mo pang mgcomment na ganun about sa mga bisaya?! How dare u!” Meanwhile @JESUSGleek takes the high road by tweeting “Don't hate on Ahcee Flores. Pray so his/her heart may be opened :)”
 
The name Ahcee Flores is still trending on Twitter Philippines, as of 9:20 am Tuesday.
 
Username Ahcee Flores is not even answering any comments anymore. There are still however some more comments from Ahcee Flores and one of them says, “There is no God, God is a product of illusion from the people who started religion.”

Philippine blogs also took a shot at this issue, including one called "Brain Contour" which did some online snooping and have discovered the real name of the user.
