Kim Chiu on moving on from ‘Bawal Lumabas’ gaffe: ‘Good vibes lang pwede sa classroom’


“Best gising ever!”

Waking up to the news that she is once again trending on Twitter after the release of the full version of her accidental hit song Bawal Lumabas felt like waking up from a nightmare, said Kim Chiu. 

The #WeStanKimChiu and Bawal Lumabas keywords ruled Twitter’s trending topics following the launch of Bawal Lumabas (The Classroom Song) music video which has racked up one million views as of writing. 

The now-viral song was inspired from her controversial “classroom” analogy during a Facebook live protest against the ABS-CBN shutdown which has become a subject of harsh criticisms online. 

Kim in her vlog described the situation as one of the “lowest moments” of her life, prompting her to stay away from social media the past few days.

But with the help of DJ Squammy and songwriter Adrian Crisanto, Kim has learned to move on and “make things negative into positive”. 

“???? ?????? ????!!!!!! ??? ???? ??????? ??????????!?,” she greeted followers on her social media accounts on Tuesday.

Kim expressed her gratitude to everyone who has inspired her to move past the “negative” experience. 

She said, “That feeling na nagising ka trending ka ulit, kinahaban ako. Pero nung nabasa ko, para akong nagising sa isang bangungot!!! Gusto ko pong magpasalamat sa lahat!!! ❤️. 

“Things may put you down pero tayong mga Pilipino hindi natin nakakalimutan tumawa sa gitna ng pinagdadaanan natin. Mahilig tayong tumambay pero hindi sa problema. Salamat sa lahat ng nagbigay inspirasyon sakin.

“Let’s spread love, kindness and positivity. Good vibes lang ang pwede sa classroom! Tama? Tama!!!!????.

“Special thank you sa lahat ng taong nasa likod nito!❤️ maraming salamat mahal ko kayo❤️,” she said.

Kim also shared lines from the song that moved her.

Star Music also released a lyric video version of the song on Tuesday.  The song will be available on digital platforms this weekend.
