Kim Chiu’s older sister Lakam Chiu expressed sibling love and support for the Kapamilya actress who recently became a hot topic online after airing her sentiments against the shutdown of ABS-CBN’s broadcast operations.
Kim received non-stop bashing from netizens for her viral “classroom” analogy during a speech in a Facebook live protest called Laban Kapamilya last week.
In an Instagram post, Lakam said she couldn’t be any prouder of her younger sister’s courage to speak her heart out.
“I knew your sacrifices. I felt your struggles. Amidst all these, YOU always come out stronger. I couldn’t be more proud of you. Your courage is incomparable,” she wrote.
“Please know that this is one of the right things you ever did. You fought for what you think is right. You’re selfless in so many ways. Sacrificing your own for the good of others has always been your remarkable trait,” she added.
“Thank you for making us proud. Stand tall @chinitaprincess ❤️❤️❤️ We love you always and forever,” ended Lakam.
Fellow Kapamilya celebrities, including boyfriend Xian Lim, previously showered Kim Chiu with messages of support and admiration amid the backlash.
Responding to the criticisms on her YouTube channel, Kim expressed disbelief at how people could be “so mean”.
