According to the news release by ABS-CBNNews.com, Blogger Professional Heckler first asked Prieto via Twitter if she would go on a date with the President. She replied: "Ayoko sa panot (I don't like bald men)."
Her post immediately went viral, with some people branding her a loose woman and saying Aquino would not like her either.
Prieto singled out 2 Twitter users - Peter Katigbak (@StPeterski), and the fake Dionisia Pacquiao (@OfacialDionisia) - for posting the most vicious attacks.
|The twit that initiated the flames.|
"Malapit na akong umalis sa Twitter. Parami ng parami ang mga bastos at demonyo dito. Di na 'to masaya (I'm close to leaving Twitter. More and more rude and demons are coming here. This is no longer fun)," Prieto said.
"Bumabalik lang sayo ang kawalan mo ng modo sa paglapastangan sa Pangulo. Ikaw ang nag umpisa! (Your lack of manners of insulting the President is just coming back at you. You started it!)," Katigbak responded.
Professional Heckler (@HecklerForever) advised Prieto to ignore the people's postings of bad things about her, and use Twitter's "block" button to filter their remarks.
Katigbak later apologized to Prieto after the actress made a series of angry posts about him and other people who were supposedly badmouthing her.
Prieto said the two (Katigbak and the fake Dionisia), as well as the other people speaking against her, should be ashamed of themselves.
"I deleted my first Twitter account dahil nilabas ko ang saloobin ko sa dami kong problema... ngayon naman sobra na ang mga bastos, mahaba ang pasensya ko wag mo lang akong babastusin dahil kaya ko rin maging bastos (I deleted my first Twitter account because I pour out all my emotions due to so many problems... and now, these rude people have gone too far, I am very patient but do not insult me because I also know how to be rude)," she said.
In Katigbak's last post, he said, "Wag naman po sana nyo hayaan na gamitin ako para pagusapan [ulit si Prieto sa] Showbiz (Don't allow Prieto to use me so that Prieto can become the talk of Showbiz again)."
At 6:00 pm, December 15, 2011, Professional Heckler tweeted that he was sorry for having asked Prieto his question. "I didn't expect this to happen," he said.

Anyway, we should also respect Francine's opinion, it's her right to express her thoughts. However, it should be a lesson, not only to Francine, but to everybody as well: "NEVER TALK ABOUT POLITICS OR ABOUT PEOPLE IN POLITICS," in cases like these, it's better to say "No comment." Otherwise, expect opposition!
