'Na-Janine Tugonon' ka na ba? Break-up memes go viral

Janine Tugonon's controversial breakup with boyfriend Jaypee Santos resulted to the creation of Internet memes, which eventually became viral in social networking sites.

The 23-year-old Miss Universe 2012 first runner-up revealed in an episode of "Kris TV" that she and Jaypee were not in good terms and admitted they have broken up.

The third party was supposedly Irish boy band The Script's vocalist Danny O'Donoghue, after Janine said they have been texting each other after they met backstage during the band's concert last March.

On Facebook, the term "na-Janine Tugonon" has been added to the urban dictionary as a verb used when your partner publicly announces you two have broken up for a supposedly better-looking person, at least according to one Internet meme.

While others tried to defend Janine, most netizens were angry at the beauty queen for what she did.

In "Senyora SantibaƱez" Facebook page, the memes have attracted around 10,000 shares and 24,000 likes. It spoofed Janine's question and answer portion in the Miss Universe 2012 pageant and used a phrase from the movie "It Takes A Man and A Woman."

Jaypee on Twitter came to Janine's defense and said Janine was only "confused during those times" and that "no actions have been made beyond that attraction."

He also appealed to public not to judge Janine based on her statements on "Kris TV."

He also said they are still talking and trying to fix the mess.

Janine meanwhile tweeted: "Stop jumping into conclusions.. Nothing's going on!!!"
