Netizens from different social media platforms share their intense sentiments on the family picture of Bugoy Cariño and EJ Laure with their 2-year-old daughter, Scarlet.
To celebrate Cariño’s 18th birthday, he posted a picture on Instagram with Laure and their daughter on Instagram that make netizens shock.
In 2018, former team captain of UST Golden Tiger EJ Laure, 23, skipped UAAP Seasons 80 and 81 due to shoulder injury.
Various opinions from netizens have scattered all over social media. Some believed that the situation involves pedophilia and have called out those who are defending the parents.
this bugoy and ej issue proves why ph needs to have sex-ed classes. no not just to teach abstinence. but one that covers grooming, pedophilia, abusive relationships, rape and etc. we can't keep avoiding these topics because ppl will continue to make excuses for sexual abusers

Bugoy and EJ Laure's story is a case of pedophilia. Grooming is real and women can do it too. Anyone sane knows there is a MAJOR imbalance in the power and dynamics when a 15 and a 20-year old get into a relationship, let alone a sexual one. #Psych101

tw / pedophilia
anw ,, ej laure having sex w bugoy when she was 20 while bugoy was 15 is undeniably disgusting. at her big age as an adult, she should've alr known better than to engage in a relationship AND to hv a baby w a minor. how has she not been jailed yet 💀💀

Regardless of the negative comments, Carino asked not to judge them and defended himself saying that he just did the right thing to do as a father despite his young age.
O wag nyo daw idefend g na g si ate. Opo alam namin na may mali sa ginawa namen, pero para ijudge kami basta basta? Ibang usapan na po yun… hindi nyo po alam buong story namin. atleast ako kahit bata pa pinanindigan ko lahat ng responsibilidad ko at hindi ko po tinakbuhan. 🙏🏻 https://t.co/oUwnBbfTqy

Bugoy Cariño was 15 when he impregnated EJ Laure, who was 20 at the time.
