The most painful verbal beating, so far as present biz celebrities are involved, includes these directed at their family members.
These adverse feedback are those that always immediate actors like Daniel Padilla, Kathryn Bernardo, Matteo Guidicelli, Andi Eigenmann, Janus del Prado, Luis Manzano and TV-film director Mae Cruz-Alviar to attempt to battle again. Their ideas on the matter:
“I’m very patient with bashers. I ignore them most of the time,” Kathryn Bernardo tells the Inquirer. “But when they start hitting members of my family, that’s the last straw.”
The actress provides: “I feel that I’m only wasting my time reading negative comments. As you get older, you realize that you have more important things to be concerned about—although ignoring them doesn’t mean the comments don’t hurt. I wish people would be more considerate.”
Now that he’s 21, Daniel Padilla says he has develop into extra mature and tolerant of bashers. “Deadma na lang,” he factors out. In 2015, the actor was compelled to avoid social networking websites for some time after a hacking incident. At the time, he already had 25,000 followers on Instagram however needed to create a brand new account.
“Although there are times when I can’t help but react, especially when the rumors being spread about me are stupid,” he stresses. “Sometimes, it’s too much for me to take, like when people said I jumped off a cliff [and died]. It was so silly.”
Janus del Prado
Comedian Janus del Prado says he’s critical in relation to dealing with bashers in his social media accounts. “While I did not have to deal with a lot of controversies in my 20 years in show biz, I still have my share of bashers. Like rumors, which I believe only get worse when you keep commenting on them online, bashers are best handled in two easy steps: block and delete.”
Janus says he’s lucky that he doesn’t encounter numerous hateful feedback on-line. “Bashers usually make fun of the sexuality of people photographed beside me. You’re just giving them what they want by reacting to their posts, so just be the bigger person and think that they just don’t have anything better to do with their lives.”
The actor says he additionally places this disclaimer on his IG account: “Haters will be blocked. Consider yourself warned.” He explains: “This is not just for my bashers, but [those] of other celebrities, as well.”
“I answer bashers as honestly as possible, and try not to hide anything from anyone,” says actor-athlete Matteo Guidicelli when requested how he handles controversies.
He factors out that “while there are some things that you read (in the papers or online) that hurt you, it’s actually the way you process them [in your mind] and tackle them [in media]—that’s what matters.”
Matteo says he has learn fairly quite a lot of nasty feedback about him and the individuals he cares for, significantly his girlfriend, singer-actress Sarah Geronimo, “but if you know that it isn’t true, then you don’t need to process it.”
For Andi Eigenmann, the worst factor that has been mentioned about her is that she is unfit to be a mother to her 5-year-old daughter, Ellie. “There’s no such thing as a perfect parent, but I’m doing my best. If I’m a failure as a mother, then why is my daughter growing up so beautifully?”
Andi says that whereas she loves appearing (“it’s my focus and the only reason I’m in this business”), present biz isn’t her precedence. “What’s important is that I’m living a peaceful life,” she says.
The actress is at the moment embroiled in a custody battle with Ellie’s dad, actor Jake Ejercito. “I’ve always been very vocal and honest—that’s my personality. I’m the type who doesn’t want to be accused of lying to the public, that’s why I always explain my side of the story whenever I can.”
TV and movie director Mae Cruz-Alviar says she was extra delicate to adverse feedback when she was simply beginning out.
“When you’re young, you’re insecure about what you do. You need validation, so when you read them, you feel bad and question your capabilities,” she recollects. “Eventually, you learn to filter them and listen, but not dismiss them. You get something from them, too. Some points are valid. It’s just that some people don’t know how to express themselves respectfully.”
The director of “Can’t Help Falling in Love” provides: “I all the time allow them to know that ‘Hey, I hear you!’
“I really feel offended when individuals post their feedback on my private images on IG. They assault me as a result of they don’t like what they’re seeing on TV, or on the large display. I inform them that there’s a correct venue for this—you possibly can ship a personal message. I’d say, ‘I respect your opinion, but please express yourself respectfully.’ I really feel that younger individuals ought to be taught etiquette in social media, and how to handle the ability of communication.”
Mae shares with the Inquirer: “They’d say, ‘Wala kang delicadeza!’ I’d say, ‘Noted.’ Another would say, ‘Direk Cathy (Garcia-Molina) is a better director than you!’ I’d reply, ‘That’s true.’ Trolls get satisfaction when you’re affected, although it takes a certain level of maturity to not get affected by all the noise.”
Her recommendation to others who’re going through an analogous state of affairs: “Don’t mind them. There are other people who appreciate you, anyway. There will always be those who will say something negative. That’s life in show biz. Like me, you’ll learn this after crying buckets.”
While different celebrities desire to only preserve quiet, TV-host Luis Manzano says he’s “the exact opposite.”
“People say that I should take the high road in dealing with bashers, but I will be the one to tell you—bastos po ako, palamura ako. I will not pretend to be clean. If a basher hits me, he or she should be ready to be hit back. Our being TV personalities doesn’t give other people the right to attack us,” Luis factors out.
The son of Lipa City Rep. Vilma Santos and TV host Edu Manzano provides: “They say the art of deadma is divine; I say, ‘To each his own.’ I don’t hate bashers. I actually enjoy dealing with them. Being on TV doesn’t make me a better person. I tell you, I’m the opposite of everything my parents are.”
