Referring to the protesters as “little brats”, Ornapa said they should leave school and stay at home.

Netizens later hit back saying she should have been boycotted ages ago because she has always been critical and makes harsh, disrespectful comments. They also said she does not deserve another chance and that her shows and sponsors should be boycotted.

Meanwhile, Forward Party MP Tunyawaj Kamolwongwat said Ornapa should, as a member of Thailand’s LGBTQ community, understand the importance of freedom instead of standing by an authoritarian regime that oppresses it.

Tunyawaj had tried to push for the legalisation of same-sex marriage, which Ornapa had reportedly opposed.
