Everyone here at The New Media joins the country in mourning the loss of the King of Comedy, Dolphy. The outpouring of grief flooded social networking sites and “RIP Dolphy” even trended worldwide. Several celebrities also posted messages on Twitter expressing their sadness including Filipino-American singer Bruno Mars.
