YouTube beauty vlogger Bretman Rock recently asked for some privacy and respect as his fans showed up uninvited in his Dad’s funeral in Cagayan Valley, Philippines, and asked to take pictures with him.
“Can people just let me be sad for once,” Bretman Rock wrote on Twitter. “I’m here in the Philippines for my dad, who just passed, don’t come to my house and ask me for pictures. So many people showed up to my dad’s funeral uninvited and started taking pics of my dad and my family. Like why? It’s common sense.”
“I just don’t understand why people think it’s okay to ask me for pictures when my eyes are literally swollen from crying. How [are you] going to say ‘Condolences, can we take a picture?’” his other tweet regarding the matter wrote.
On November 6, Bretman said that his father, Edmund Laforga, was in a coma, replying to a fan asking why Rock hasn’t posted anything on Instagram.
I just found out my dad is in a critical condition and is in acoma now… sorry I’m just kinda taken back and taking time for myself and family !! ✨✨✨💕 https://t.co/PqP6TC0uNy— Bretman Rock 🐢 (@bretmanrock) November 5, 2019
