Oh, no! It seems like DJ Loonyo has not been devoting some of his down time getting updated about current events.

The internet famous dancer went viral after bursting out inaccurate and false claims about the coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) mass testing.

“Kawawa ‘yung mag-i-intake at ‘yung mag-a-undergo niyan, because it’s not 100% proven,” he said in a segment titled #SwaggadNaUsapan Anu ba talaga nangyayari sa mundo natin???

“Nakakatakot eh. Pano kung uwi mo ngayon biglang reactant pala ‘yung tinake mo? So pa’no kung may ininom ka na baso and then your kids drink from the same glass and affected na lahat? We don’t know,” he added.

In just a matter of time, the internet star inevitably drew massive backlash due to misinformation considering the subject has been discussed thoroughly on the internet. He has quite a following with 1.27 million YouTube subscribers and over 622,000 followers on Twitter.

While he wishes that the public’s attention to the 5-minute clip would divert to what was said during the 2-hour episode, we, on the other hand, hope that he exert some effort and familiarize himself on the subject matter before engaging in an interview next time. He has a platform majorly consisting of young fans and spreading false information—whether intentional or not—is not how you make use of that, ever.

To clear up any more mass confusion, here are 10 resources about the widely used term, ‘mass testing’.
