If you have been online lately – who are we kidding? Of course you have — then you’ve probably seen the countless memes and videos of a Filipina woman getting mad at her American boyfriend. She told him off, saying “you’re road” (she meant rude, okay).
The woman drew flak from netizens not only for her attitude, but also for supposedly being a gold-digger. However, the man in the viral video, Larry Passariello, said people should stop accusing his girlfriend, Jhen Torres, of being only after his money.
The American national wrote:
“How can somebody be a gold digger when there is no gold to dig, so all the idiots who call my love a gold digger thats what you are a idiot.”
Here are some netizens’ comments on his post:
“Egnore them I think they are jealous.”
“They are just talking bout your heart of gold… awwwww. Or maybe golden years? Or let the gold times roll? Or is it good? Lol”
“Ignore the idiot heater larry your the one who’s jenny is…they are just jealous dont let them bring you down.”
“Glad to see things going well for you Larry. Hope you have it all figured out.”
His Filipina girlfriend, Jhen, also commented on his post and wrote:
“I don’t have anything to say love, because you Know me.”
The couple’s story piqued the curiosity of netizens after a clip from “90-day Fiancée” went viral online. “90-day Fiancée” is a TLC show which follows couples who have applied for or received a K-1 visa, giving them only 90 days to decide whether or not they want to get married. One of the couples featured was Larry and Jhen.
Jhen earned the ire of netizens when she got mad at Larry in one of the episodes for not eating the lechon that her family prepared. She insisted that he was being disrespectful, uttering the now mimetic phrase “you’re road.” The short clip of their argument has since gone viral, with netizens making fun of Jhen’s English and questioning what her real intentions with Larry are.
