TikTok favorite Mama Lulu was talked about in an online forum for her open acceptance of her son’s sexual identity.
A Redditor cross-posted a funny TikTok video that showed a hilarious conversation between Mama Lulu and her son Oliver.
It was posted in the subreddit r/Philippines, a forum that talks about topics related to the Philippines and Filipinos.
“I wish all Filipino moms and parents accept their gay son [as] she does,” the Redditor said.
In the video, Oliver casually asked his mother when she knew he was a member of the LGBTQIA+ community.
Mama Lulu and his sister Donnabelle were shown there.
“When I didn’t hear you fart anymore,” she answered him in jest. She and Donnabelle then burst into laughter.
Oliver, however, was confused at first.
It was a few moments later when the well-loved TikTok personality clarified what she meant.
In the discussion section, several Redditors expressed how amused they were with Mama Lulu.
“Hahahaha laftrip tong pamilya na to eh,” one Reddit user said.
“She’s not a regular mom, she’s a cool mom,” another Reddit user commented.
The phrase referenced an iconic line from the 2004 movie “Mean Girls.” The line was expressed by Amy Poehler’s character.
Another Redditor also congratulated Mama Lulu for her cameo in Beyonce’s new video titled “Break My Soul (Hive Certified).”
“Love Mama Lulu! Nag-cameo siya sa MV ni Beyonce and she deserves it,” the user said.

Despite the light-hearted, entertaining mood of the video, the Redditor’s sentiment reflected the still-prevalent struggles of LGBTQIA+ community in the Philippines, particularly on family acceptance.

Oliver also made two other videos in response to some commenters who requested him to ask the same question about the sexual identities of Mama Lulu herself and Donnabelle.
He also uploaded them on his channel and had since racked up millions of views.
