Sharon Cuneta (Facebook)

A Catholic priest said that megastar Sharon Cuneta should be discreet in showing off wealth when she uploaded a video of her trip to South Korea recently.

“Sana a little prudence naman dun sa isang sikat na singer at actress na nagflaunt ng yaman on video. Daming designer bags/items ang binili sa isang tanyag na store. It is not about affording it, but being discreet about it. Kailangan ba talagang nakavideo at i-post?” tweeted Fr. Nonong Tuazon on Oct. 1.

The Catholic priest added: “I agree that it was her money, and she has all the right. Pero Di naman kailangan. Humility is better.”

Fr. Tuazon is also a social media influencer, an environmentalist, licensed agricultural engineer, chess enthusiast and a ten pin bowler.

During a trip to South Korea, Sharon was barred from entering the Hermes luxury boutique. She did not say why she was banned from the Hermes store. Then Sharon and her companions decided to shop at Louis Vuitton, another French luxury store.

But some netizens defended Sharon, saying there was a backstory to the Hermes incident, and it was not about flaunting her branded bags but the discrimination she experienced abroad. Some comments:

“There’s a backstory po dun, Father. Sharon was snubbed at Herm├Ęs, di siya pinapasok when she was going to buy a belt lang. Nauwi siya sa LV and ended up buying several pieces and nun nakita nun unang store na can afford pala siya, ininvite na siya pumasok. It was necessary to share the story para ipakita how Pinoys are badly treated ng iilang mga luxury stores.”

“Pera naman po nya yon..pinaghirapan nya sariling sikap..tingnan din naman po natin sa positibong paraan..at nakaranas po daw si aktres ng diskriminasyon sa store ng branded na bag..kaya ayun lumipat sa LV at don namakyaw kaya may karapatan syang gawin yon pera nyang pinagpaguran.”

“Hindi naman yung idea ng flaunting po ang point ng video. Ang context kasi, hindi siya pina pasok sa Hermes.”

“Hindi siya pinapasok sa Hermes kaya bumili siya ng marami sa LV. And wala naman sigurong masama doon if she uses her own money.”
