Rica Peralejo, 40, has stirred buzz on social media after talking about the infamous "cancel culture" that is rampant in the online community.
In her controversial online post, the former actress talked about her latest vlog where she shared several points about receiving hate and why we should not listen to our "shamers."
However, KAMI learned that Rica's post about "cancel culture" eventually prompted one netizen to raise their concerns about her statement.
"Have you been hated on? Ever received criticism publicly? Ever been shamed online? Cause really, even when you have done something bad, shaming is never the correct way to address it.

"The heart of shame is pride, and also an unthinking position that we all fall short. Sabi nga ni Ina Raymundo when someone said ang itim ng kilikili nya, “Patingin nga ako ng kilikili mo?”
"Swipe away to see some of the points I made on my vlog, which begins with why we shouldn’t believe in our haters, cancelers, shamers," she wrote.
The netizen then went on to share that while they hate cancel culture as well, what Rica said about not believing in one's haters is considered to be dangerous.
According to the netizen, "I think you have to be careful on saying "why you shouldn't believe in your haters" because this can be used as an excuse to not listen to what others have to say, especially when it comes to things that are not just about preferences."
They then pointed out the criticisms most politicians face and even mentioned Toni Gonzaga's controversial interview with Bongbong Marcos.
Eventually, Rica responded and said that "one post is not enough to address all the problems in the world."
"We should also be careful to read captions. This post invites to hear more of my thoughts in full on the vlog. One post is not enough to address all the problems in the world.
"Also, canceling online is rarely producing any change in any person’s heart. If anything, change happens on a very intimate level.
"And while I believe that canceling is different from a people asking for good governance so I am okay with that (I do that as well).
"Hindi ako naniniwala na kaya ng canceling na baguhin ang puso ng masasamang leaders ng bansa. If anything, people power nalang tayo. It needs something stronger than just keyboard warriors," Rica explained.
