The bill has been paid
Last month, UST’s Kyle Viray made headlines after stories of his physical abuse towards his exes went viral.
The most well-known incident came from his former gf, Diane Kimberly, who revealed on Twitter the toll that Viray’s beatings took, including her suffering from severe hematoma.
UST eventually got wind of the story and ‘punished’ Kyle Viray with 250 hours of community service
But it was a sentence many felt wasn’t enough.
UST fired a teacher and suspended students for harmless tweets but they gave a domestic abuser, Kyle Viray, community service lang?? Sad and pathetic. This will never give justice to what his victim/s had to go through.

Naiirita ako. Kyle Viray doesn't deserve fucking community service. Prison or mental institution would be more fitting. ASAAN ANG COMPASSION??????????????????? (SA VICTIM AND NOT DUN SA ABUSER) ISA YUN SA CORE VALUES???????

Doesn’t the UST admin realize that giving Kyle Viray a mere “community service” sanction sends a message to all other abusers out there that they can get away with their disgusting actions?
Our faith teaches mercy, but it also teaches JUSTICE.
Expel the guy. He deserves it.

While the injustice seemed to be set in place, The Varsitarian has just reported that Kyle Viray has now been expelled, after ANOTHER physical abuse complaint was filed by a fellow Thomasian.
Gil Nicole Morales was the newest complainant
Gil also launched her own viral Twitter thread about back in July, which included snaps of the horrible exchanges and bruises she suffered under Kyle.
‘Sarap mo bugbugin ulit.’ Unbelievable.
Following the second complaint, and after being found guilty of ‘violating UST’s Code of Conduct and Discipline’, the university has (finally) ‘excluded Viray from the roll of students’ and is ‘disqualified from enrolling in any program.’
The pvblic was more than happy with the decision

it's fucked up that it had to take 2 cases but at least he's gone and apparently facing a warrant of arrest.

In any case, we’re happy that justice has been served
