She may be one of the most well-respected and accomplished singers in the world, but even Lea Salonga isn’t safe from online trolls.
That’s why she asked her fans on Twitter Friday afternoon for suggestions on how to end bullying that happens on social media.
“How do we, as a collective, put an end to online bullying? What prompts the bullying in the first place? Yes, I am asking for your opinions,” she told her more than four million followers.

And the solution the Broadway star came up with? A simple one. “Block asap,” she wrote.
“How about we propose this: mag-usap nang matino at sumagot din nang matino. Pag may bastusan na, instant block.” she said.
She also reasoned: “Pero ang sa akin lang: bastusin mo ako, o ang pamilya at mga kaibigan ko, hindi kita kakausapin. Bakit pa ba?”
It might not be the most effective solution, as trolls can just easily create new accounts, but Salonga also put to the front a Twitter tool that allows users to mute handles without profile pictures.
It will also block those who failed to confirm their e-mail or phone numbers. “Yaaaaas!!! Goodbye, eggheads!!!” she said.
The topic of online bullying has been a hot one for local celebrities, with Daniel Padilla, Liza Soberano, and Kiana Valenciano taking a stand against it.
Tired of social media and the verbal abuse celebrities get online.

Cyber bullying, or bullying in any form for that matter, should not be tolerated. Again, your words have power. Use them for good.
