- The post of actress Maris Racal becomes a hot topic now on social media
- The celebrity’s caption was allegedly incorrect according to some netizens
- Maris immediately responded to the bashers for throwing negative words
Kapamilya actress Maris Racal could not contain her emotions after receiving negative comments about her post which allegedly has a grammatical “error.”
KAMI learned that the promising actress posted on her social media account a statement and a photo that endorsed a famous brand and its products.
After drawing flak from netizens, Maris believed that there was nothing wrong with her statement as some of her fans also claimed that the celebrity was just misinterpreted.
“Can’t not shop at Penshoppe,” the trending post wrote.
“Can’t na nga, may not pa ‘yung totoo? Hahaha just saying,” a basher commented.
Because of this, the former Pinoy Big Brother housemate took a swipe at her critiques and exclaimed that she could have received more negative comments if her post was really incorrect.
She sarcastically emphasized that the people in the Philippines must be “perfect” to avoid criticisms and below-the-belt statements from other individuals.
“What if mali talaga ang na post mo no? Siguro doble pa makukuha mong hate comments. Kailangan perfect ka talaga no pag nasa Pilipinas ka,” she quipped.
“Kailangan perfect ka talaga ‘no ‘pag nasa Pilipinas ka,” the celebrity added.
One of Maris’ followers defended the young actress and explained that she just used double negatives to mean “hindi pwedeng hindi magshop sa Penshoppe.”
She was also able to relate the issue during Shakespeare time when double negatives were considered “emphatic” and correct.
“A double negative is the nonstandard usage of two negatives used in the same sentence so that they cancel each other and create a positive,” the netizen said.
“In Shakespeare’s day, double negatives were considered emphatic, but today they are considered grammar mistakes,” she added.
In a previous article by KAMI, Maris was torn between pursuing her music career or her dream of being a doctor.
Maris Racal, or Mariestella Racal in real life, is a Filipina actress and endorser who was born on September 22, 1997. She gained popularity after joining and becoming the 2nd Big Placer in the Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) All In.
