Whenever Pey Pey Dy, 20, posts a status or picture on Face-book, he gets hundreds of likes, while his video get thousands. Thanks to his Facebook video, which turned him from an ordinary Facebook user to a Facebook celebrity, he has been offered an acting job by a production company.

Who is this young STEC University student, and how did he become a Facebook celebrity?

It all started when Lon Dy and his friends shot a short video and posted it on Facebook.

 “I had no wish to be famous for posting this video,” said Lon Dy, who added that the video was made just for fun.

Soon enough, his friends began sharing the video with their friends, and soon afterward thousands of people were viewing the video.

While some people liked the video, others did not. Consequently, Lon Dy became a victim of online harassment.

“Some people admired he video, while some called me stupid or crazy. Those words did hurt and disappointed me, and I really wanted to deactivate my account at that time. I just wanted to make other people happy and never wished to be famous. But I was repaid by hate and blame.

But on the day Dy wanted to quit Facebook, many people messaged him and encouraged him to work for what he loved.

“Someone told me that I was called crazy or stupid because I was successful.”
