Several days ago, news came out that Charice has changed his social media handles on Instagram and Twitter to Jake Zyrus.
It has gotten mixed reactions where some were supportive of this while others somewhat mocked it.
A fellow trans-man, Aiza Seguerra, showed support to Jake’s move.
On Twitter, Aiza said:
Kung ang pangalan ay isa lamang hadlang sa pagpapalaya ng totoo mong pagkatao, wala akong nakikitang masama sa pag palit nito.#congratsjake

Meanwhile, Jake posted his first tweet after the name change. Similar to when the news came out, the tweet also received a mix of support and criticism.
My first tweet as Jake. Overwhelmed. Saw all your love comments and I’m so happy. Finally. I love you, everyone and see you soon.
