"Budoy" - awareness? or a vehicle for the bullies?

"Yesterday, my daughter said "Hi" to a group of students from one school (not hers) when she passed them. They said "Hi", back to her... BUT... then they added "Hi. I am Budoy".
What could have been a profound moment of acceptance for special-needs children turned into bullying.

So what does this teleserye really accomplished?"

My Hope ... is for the Media to be a powerful vehicle of support for PWDs. Famous media personalities could have been a very big voice for awareness...
