Celebrities typically get followings. Some of the overzealous ones, however, take it upon themselves to defend their idols, sometimes, from imaginary threats.
Just recently, Angel Locsin has been on the receiving end of unkind words from some netizens who claim to be fans of the Kathniel (Kathryn Bernardo-Daniel Padilla love team). The pair have spoken, but in a recent interview, Daniel Padilla had said that these bashers are not 'Kathniel' followers.
According to a report made by Pep.ph, the 22-year-old actor had denied association with these bashers saying, "Wala, walang ganun. Naninira lang sila [bashers].
"Kung nabalitaan niyo yung mga fans na [namba-bash], I think hindi sila mga KathNiels. Mga naninira lang sila or mga nagpapanggap lang sila," he added.
He also defended Angel Locsin and Richard Gutierrez's appearance on La Luna Sangre.
"Mababait na tao yun, dapat hindi natin sila ginaganun. And very thankful kami, very blessed na tinatanggap ng mga beteranong artista yun," he shared and added,"Tinutulungan kami, tinutulungan namin sila."
