Many netizens couldn’t help but be disappointed over photos of Raymond and his friends as they celebrated his birthday at the La Picara BGC. Amid the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, strict quarantine protocols are still being implemented against mass gatherings and celebrations.

Allegedly, right after Raymond’s party, La Picara was ordered closed by the Taguig COVID Regulations Enforcement.

On Twitter, GaysOverCovidPH shared a photo of Raymond being closely surrounded by his friends with no face masks on. The photo, however, noted that everyone who attended the party had undergone COVID-19 testing.

The account tweeted, “BGC has been ordered CLOSED. (Due to a party last night). Taguig COVID Regulations Enforcement has decided to implement new restrictions for the restaurant.”

“Think about the people, Mond,” it added.

Many netizens continued to air their dismay at how hardworking employees have lost their jobs due to the closure of the establishment. Others pointed out how it was unfair that the workers have to suffer due to a celebrity and his friends’ eagerness to party amid the pandemic.

An angry netizen wrote, “How does it feel RAYMOND GUTIERREZ? Ang saya ba ng PARTY? Worth it ba? You had the time of your life? Worth it din ba na nawalan ng work ang mga nagtatrabaho diyan just because of you?! It’s all on you! You all RK (Rich Kids) na walang pakialam sa iba. SHAME ON U! LET KARMA DO ITS THING!”

Shortly after the closure of the establishment, Taguig Mayor Lino Cayetano issued a statement that they remain committed to making BGC a safe place for residents and business owners.
