Chad Kinis, one of the stars of the new movie “Tililing,” took to social media to react to the controversy surrounding the film’s poster.
According to Chad, those who accused the movie poster of making a joke out of mental illness are being judgmental.
He said that they should watch the entire movie first before making judgments about the film’s themes and message. The star also pointed out that audiences did not have a problem when movie characters with mental illnesses like the Joker or Harley Quinn are dressed up as clowns in the movies.
Likewise, the actor explained that the filmmakers and the cast members behind this movie take mental illness seriously especially since many of them have dealt with mental health issues.
“Many people watched JOKER and yet they are ok with it. A person with mental illness dressed as a clown and doing random violence to terrorize Gotham city. Some even dresses up as him. Some are fans of Suicide squad specially Harley Quinn who is also suffering from mental illness. But then others judged the poster as if they already know the entirety of the film.
“Kami po kasama ang mga artista na nasa pelikulang TILILING ni Darryl Yap ay hindi tatanggap ng isang proyekto na alam naming ikakasira ng mga taong nagdadaan sa MENTAL ILLNESS. Ako po mismo ay dumaan na din dati sa depression. Ganun din ang iba kong kasamahan ay may pinagdaanan o pinagdadaanan na may kaugnay sa MENTAL HEALTH. Pero we accepted to do this film because we strongly believe in the message that it will convey.
“Isa lang po ang dapat matigil na MENTALIDAD dito sa ating banda ang JUDGEMENTALITY...
“Before you criticize a film and be offended make sure to see the whole thing. Haven't you learned anything from the cliché ‘DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER’.
“You want awareness. This is a film that you should see. Try to shut your mouths first and try to open your minds while watching the movie then analyze everything," Chad posted on Facebook.
“Tililing” is a movie that deals with mental illness and is directed by Darryl Yap. The film stars Gina Pareño, Baron Geisler, Chad Kinis, and Donnalyn Bartolome.
In a previous report by KAMI, Liza Soberano said that she did not like the movie’s poster because it seems to not be taking mental illness seriously. However, she added that she is hoping that the movie will be able to raise awareness about the reality of mental illness.
After Liza was bashed by some netizens for judging the film, Baron Geisler posted online to defend the actress. He said that Liza meant well and that she was just being protective of her advocacy.
