In a YouTube video, Philmar admitted that it was hard for him to date a celebrity because people would bash him for being a probinsyano or island man.

However, Andi defended her partner to those who belittle people living in provinces.

“Sabi niya, ‘people don’t like us together kasi taga-isla lang ako,’ he said that to me OMG,” she said.

“‘Taga-isla ka lang,’ don’t ever say that. ‘Taga-isla ka lang,’ don’t say that that’s a ‘lang’ lang thing because to me, you guys are the richest people on earth to be surrounded by such beauty, nature, and living in paradise like this,” Andi added.

Andi also mentioned how Filipinos would belittle those who have kayumanggi skin and that stereotype that those living in the provinces are not successful.

“Parang bakit yung Pilipino sa tingin nila yung itsura ng Pilipino pangit, like my partner’s maitim, hello that’s so nice kaya,” Andi said.

“That if you’re from the province you are not successful, that (it) means you’re inferior to everyone else who is finding jobs in the city, because that’s not the meaning of success and also every person is different,” she continued.
