Xander Ford filed a case against Dave Alvarez, who uploaded his video bad-mouthing Kathryn Bernardo.
The video was taken last July prior to his cosmetic surgery.
According to Xander, he got depressed because of the uploaded video that had gone viral.
He was bashed by the netizens and KathNiel fans because of it.
The bashing went a bit too far according to him.
A netizen wrote, “Eh yung ginawa nya, hindi ba cyber bullying yun? Pangit na mukha, pangit pa ugali! Yan hindi pambubully yan, kc totoo yan.”
“Ang shupal! Eh sya nga nambully kay Kathryn. Dapat pasalamat pa si uploader,” said another netizen.
“Patawa rin eh, nag demanda ng cyberbullying eh siya mismo bully. Huy asan ang logic, wag puro kapal ng mukha. Sinasayang mo oras ng PMP!”
On the other hand there are also netizens who showed their support for him in the midst of controversy.
“Tama lang yan. Kaya naman in-upload yang video na yun dahil madaming inggit sa kanya kasi nga pumogi na siya at sumikat na. Para talaga pabagsakin siya nun. Ginawa yung video nung pangit pa siya. Marlou pa siya. Irrelevant na yun ngayon na Xander na siya. Pero wag siyang papabully. Binully ka na nga nung panget ka, lumaban ka naman ngayon para sa pamilya mo at sa sarili mo Xander/ Marlou.” a supporter said.
