Self-proclaimed Filipino social media influencer Buknoy Glamurr is in hot water after belittling a tricycle driver and using the ‘n’ word in a series of videos that are making the rounds now on social media platforms.
The 16-year-old vlogger discusses in one of her videos the things about working hard to reach one’s dream and not to be like a tricycle driver.
““Ang gusto ko talagang sabihin sa inyo is wag kayong sumuko na mangarap. Wag na wag kayong sumuko na tuparin ang mga pangarap ninyo kasi kung hindi kayo magsu-sumikap sa buhay, walang-wala kayong mararating tulad nito,” she said while focusing the camera on a tricycle driver who is passing his way.
Hi, Buknoy.— #JunkTerrorBill (@marvintomandao) July 3, 2020
Tricycle drivers are victims of circumstances. It’s not that they din’t dream enough for themselves.
It’s coz they dream more for their kids.
I‘m a son of a tricycle driver, nakapag-UP.

A lot of Facebook and Twitter users have called him out for the tasteless remark. Just this Friday, actress Kaladkaren said that Buknoy should educate himself first and apologize sincerely.
“Gen Zs… Aral muna bhe. Wag puro Tiktok bhe. Aral muna. Aral muna bhe para may alam kayo. Google, Aral… Google… aral… Google… Aral… Wag puro Tiktok. A friendly advice from your Ate KaladKaren. At kung mag-aapologize, alamin kung saan nagkamali and be sincere,” said Kaladkaren in a video posted on Twitter.
Buknoy was initially called out for using the ‘n’ word in a now-deleted TikTok video.
