Paolinne Michelle "Mich" Liggayu, former fiancé of the late Jam Sebastian and one-half of the popular YouTube tandem JaMich, is once again under fire after a video of her and her friends making noises in front of her dying boyfriend surfaced online earlier this week.

Netizens are calling their antics "insensitive" and "disrespectful," but Mich has decided not to defend herself. "Ayaw ko po muna makipagsabayan sa gulo nila," she pointed out to PEP.ph in an interview last March 31. "Ipinagdasal ko na lang po lahat ngayon. Nili-lift ko na lahat kay God. Siya na po ang bahala sa akin."
There's no question that Mich is a lovely young girl with the best of intentions, but she just can't seem to catch a break from bashers. In fact, she's been in this situation many times before. Remember that time when...
An iPhone 6 triggered a public outcry against Mich and Jam
The pair drew flak from netizens for announcing on Facebook that they plan to save up for the newly-launched phone, as opposed to using the money for Jam's treatment. "You have to be very careful because when you post something, it's open to anyone's interpretation," Boy Abunda told the couple. "Take care of yourself, know your priorities, and don't lose focus."

Mich was accused of already hooking up with someone else
Mich alleged has a budding romance with showbiz newcomer Neo Domingo, who continues to deny that there's something going on between them. "Actually, friends ko sila [Jamich]," Neo told PEP.ph. "Nagkasama kami sa isang short film, 'yan ang first time ko silang nakasama at naka-work. Baka nami-misinterpret lang ng tao. Siyempre magkaibigan kami, may pinagdadaanan si Mich ngayon."

She talked about Jam's worsening condition on The Buzz
"Totoo pala yung bumabalik ka sa pagkabata. Ganun pala talaga, simpleng bagay, nagagalit," she revealed during the interview. "Natatakot na akong kausapin siya kasi na-se-stress siya agad kapag may sinasabi kami sa kanya." This didn't sit well with netizens, who claim that Jam didn't need the negative publicity.

Mich clashed with Jam's mom
Based on interviews following her son's death, Mommy Maricar doesn't seem to be too thrilled with Mich's showbiz aspirations and association with Neo. "Tapos na 'yung kabanata nila ng anak ko," Maricar explained on Startalk. "Alam niya kung ano ang mga ginawa niya. Marami akong narinig, pero in time. Tsaka na lang ako magsasalita." Oh, snap!

The YouTube video Mich posted on her page hours after Jam's death
A netizen named Chuck Norris took to 9gag.com to lambast the YouTube star and her actions. "It seems like she is trying to gain attention by using the death of someone, which is really despicable and disrespectful," he posted. "If she really feels sorry then she should have just stayed at the funeral." Chuck's comment drew thousands of likes and somewhat mirrored what a vast number of netizens thought about Mich's video.

We know you're hurting right now, Mich, but an apology is all it takes to put an end to all of this. Speak up! Or rather don't, just talk to the people you think you've wronged.
