Viral ang dating APO Hiking Society member na si Jim Paredes matapos nitong umamin sa kumalat na video scandal kung saan makikita ang ‘paglalaro’ nito sa maselang bahagi ng katawan.
Martes ng umaga ay naglabas ng pahayag si Paredes sa kanyang blog at dito na inilahad na siya nga ang taong makikita sa video na nag-viral nitong Lunes.
“The video was real. It was private, and not meant for pubic consumption,” ayon kay Paredes sa kanyang post.
Dahil dito, nagkagulo ang Twitter world dahil sa naging pag-amin ng kilalang kritiko ni Duterte.
Ilan sa mga netizen ay dumepensa sa nasabing issue, sinabi na hindi na dapat ito palakihin pa dahil lahat naman ay may pagkakamali.
I don’t like Jim Paredes and what he stands for, but I do believe that we need to tone down our negative rhetoric against his viral video. We all have our dark side and it is the opportunity now for all of us to exhibit the better side of our humanity.

Jim Paredes admitted that he was on that video which is brave and honest thing to do.
But hey, is there any man in this world who has never done it? Please raise your hand… https://t.co/rt5b7635ej

Laughing at my friend Jim Paredes and his predicament doesn’t make you, video thieves and sharers, any better than him. The lengths you went through to reveal his private data are CRIMINAL and you should be charged. You violated his privacy. Karma boomerangs big time.

Saad naman ng iba, tila nakatikim daw ng karma si Paredes dahil sa pagtira nito kay Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte dahil sa mga nababanggit nitong ukol sa mga kababaihan.
Pakli ng ilang netizen, hindi dapat umanong magkunwaring disente si Paredes at sinasabihan pa itong ipokrito.
Look at these holy people trying to defend him. All of a sudden its a humanely and normal. It’s not THE deed we are after, people!!! It’s Jim Paredes’ hypocrisy.

Wasn’t #JimParedes one of those who criticized PRRD for kissing an OFW?
Tangina niya! ?
