The video of a certain Claire Marielle Miralo also known as Rapbeh continues to spread across Filipino social media. The 1 minute and 32 seconds long video clip showing a young couple doing the deed while their friends watch and cheer them on still proliferates the internet.

As the saying goes, "Once you put it on the internet, it's there forever." That is why no matter how many times the Rapbeh videos are reported and taken down there will always be another re-uploaded to the web. Another stream and another download link to spread. Sad to say, it's there forever and stopping it is just like quenching a forest fire with a garden hose.

The victim: Rapbeh Girl

Claire Marielle Miralo scandal.

Spreading scandalous videos like Rapbeh is illegal. It's a crime and like other crimes it has its victims. In this case, the victim is the 'Rapbehgirl' Claire Miralo. She has already deactivated her social media accounts apparently because of bashing and cyber bullying from strangers.

According to netizens, Miralo issued a statement on her FB account before it was deactivated saying that she regrets what she's done and that she was drugged before being coaxed to doing what she did. But many netizens are not convinced and many still think that she willingly participated in doing the deed.

Anyway, the girl is no doubt going through a lot of hardships right now. Being shamed in a massive scale is not something that you can walk out of easily. There's even a rumor that Miralo had already committed suicide out of depression but it was soon debunked as a hoax.

It could be a hoax now, but that doesn't mean that it is impossible to come true. It is not a secret that depression can lead to being suicidal so let's just hope that her friends and family will handle the situation very carefully. As for us netizens, let's carry on to something else that will not make us look like a nation of twelve years old. Let this Claire Marielle Miralo scandal run its course as quickly as possible and be done with it.
