MANILA – Angel Locsin’s “Maalaala Mo Kaya” episode which aired on Saturday took social media by storm with its official hashtag making it to Twitter’s trending topics both in the Philippines and worldwide.
The story, which was the second half of the two-part episode of “MMK,” was told from the perspective of Locsin’s character. She played the role of Samina, a Muslim woman who allegedly abducted a young boy, whose biological mother was portrayed by Dimples Romana.
Last Saturday, the episode was told from the vantage point of Romana’s character, and her struggles with finding clues about her son’s supposed abduction.
Some netizens said last night’s beautifully written episode taught them that there were always two sides to a story, and that people should refrain from judging others based on race or religion.
Below are some of netizens’ tweets, lauding not only Locsin but also actress Jane Oineza, who played Samina’s sister in the story.

Every story has it’s different sides. Lessons learned, we should not judge only in one side #MMKRobbedMotherhoodV2

It’s so easy to generalize when we don’t even hold a single idea about the story. Minsan, may idea nga, mali naman.#MMKRobbedMotherhoodV2

Muslims are often underestimated by the way they fight 4 things but MMK proves that they’re human & kind-hearted too.#MMKRobbedMotherhoodV2

This is Locsin’s sixth time on “MMK.” Her last outing on the drama anthology saw her portray the girlfriend of one of the soldiers who died in the deadly Mamasapano clash.
