“Kawawa naman si manong taxi driver
NOTE: Pumunta tong Babaeng to sa Shop namin TAPOS Tumawag pinipilit Pinapabura tong Video. Tapos kakasuhan din ako akala niya wala tayong alam sa Batas Hahaha.. Merry na ang Christmas mo maam:)
EH HINDI LANG NAMAN AKO NAG VIDEO SA GINAWA NIYA SA MATANDA. Parang walang tatay/Lolo to. Tsk tsk”
According to one comment, the driver is a stroke survivor and is seen in the video walking unevenly.
One Facebook user named Kirk Barbosa revealed the name of the woman and even told the company she has been working on about the incident she committed. He said,
“Hi VXI PH VXI Global Solutions Muñoz
This is to let you know that one of your employees named CHERISH SHARMAINE INTERIOR SLAPPED AN OLD TAXI DRIVER, because “apparently” the cars they were both driving got too close to each other earlier today. Also, according to some witnesses this woman allegedly hit the poor driver with a golf club.
Most of us have family members who are elderly and I am very angry that this kind of attitude exists! This old man is just trying to earn a decent amount of money for a living, and NO ONE IS ALLOWED, WHATEVER YOUR STATUS IN LIFE, TO HURT ANOTHER HUMAN BEING. Our elders deserve their dignity and our respect!” We hope you will firmly stick with your principle.
We hope you will not tolerate and employ this woman in your company. Please, do not let this woman represent your company!”
As of this writing, the viral video has been viewed over 8 million times in less than 24 hours since it was uploaded on Facebook and shared over 178,000 times.
