Social media sensation DJ Loonyo went from being loved for his dance covers to being disliked for his "problematic" comments regarding a lot of issues amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

For starters, the Filipino-Chinese choreographer, whose real name is Rhemuel Lunio, found himself trending for all the wrong reasons in early June after sharing an inaccurate take on COVID-19 mass testing in the country. Loonyo later issued an apology, explaining that he was actually referring to clinical trials.


But not long after, he was again at the center of a social media firestorm after another clip showed him making more controversial statements - including his belief that wearing masks for prolonged periods is like inhaling your own fart - which didn't sit well with many people especially actress Lauren Young.

If you thought that was the end of it, #DJLoonyoSTFUChallenge started trending after Loonyo's latest statement earned the ire of netizens for spreading "toxic positivity".
