Mike Pirath defends Yaya Urassaya on “naa kliat” comment
He took a picture as a couple with “Yaya Urassaya” and posted it on instagram, in that picture showed Yaya smiling widely for the camera. However, someone commented on the picture saying that Yaya is behaving in such a repulsive manner, in a way unsuitable for the na’ek image. This forced “Mike Pirath” the owner of the instagram account and the person responsible for posting the picture, to come out and protect Yaya. He responded gently saying “As it turns out, I’m short-sighted so I don’t really judge a person from the outside. Regardless of what faces she’s making, I would say she’s beautiful anyhow. Please don’t think like that.” Mike clarifies the whole situation for us…
I saw that comment, and felt that the figure of speech was a bit too harsh. That person used the word “naa kliat” (repulsive, hatable, disgusting) on her. So I thought that it’s not an ok comment. At first I let it go, but then the person came back again, so that point I was a little irritated. So I responded “I’m short-sighted, therefore I don’t look at a person externally…” I don’t really remember what I said. I’m not at the point I don’t like that fan’s comment, but I’m speaking as a guy in the middle. It wasn’t my intention to criticize that person. However, it’s rather a comment that should be taken into consideration.
At that time, did you feel like you wanted to burst on that particular fan?
It wasn’t to that extent. Then when I went to read about it at pantip, that’s when I felt I was going to burst. But I didn’t respond, because that website has comments that are not so good.
Why did you feel the urge to come out and protect Yaya?
Honestly, I want to protect both sides, that’s why I didn’t use harsh words. But it’s nothing. I normally respond to my fanclub’s comments. Though it could be because it’s also a picture of Yaya, that’s why it’s making news to this extent. As for those that feel like I’m a man to come out and defend her, honestly it’s not that big of a deal. It’s just a comment to refute another comment on instagram. I didn’t think it would be made into a big issue like this.
Exactly how close are you to Yaya?
We study at the same school. But Yaya is more so closer to my younger sister.
Coming out to protect her like this, are you concerned that people might consider your relationship to Yaya a special one?
I didn’t think like that at all.
With a problem like this, are you considering setting your IG to private?
Have you told Yaya about this?
We haven’t spoken yet. I rather not have her learn about it. I don’t want her to know about it, because her charm lies on the fact she isn’t concerned about looking beautiful. She’s real, it shows how sincere she is, more so than to sit and take beautiful pictures of herself each time. I like her for the reason that she’s a sincere person.
