Dawn Zulueta reprimands fans for making fun of Sharon Cuneta
Dawn Zulueta takes pride in the peaceful manner by which her fans conduct themselves on social media—which is why she didn’t hesitate to call them out when they made fun of Megastar Sharon Cuneta.
It came to Zulueta’s attention that some of her fans had edited a photo of Cuneta, Richard Gomez and Kathryn Bernardo for their upcoming movie. The said photo was shared by Cuneta on her Instagram account last Friday, Sept. 14. It should be noted that Gomez was romantically linked to both Cuneta and Zulueta, who have been both his leading ladies.
One of Zulueta’s fans, (@_sofiasyndrome) replaced Cuneta’s face with Zulueta’s. The said netizen captioned the edited photo with “Tama (Right) she is too big [laughs].” Zulueta’s other fans, sandra (@sandraagabriele) and (@akrylle), echoed the netizen’s caption, commenting that Cuneta was “too big.”
The Tweet did not sit well with one Cuneta fan, elyguiala (@elyguiala), who confronted Zulueta’s fan: “What heck did you do sa pic na ‘to? Ganyan kayo kabastos?… Ganyan pala fans ni Dawn.”
(What the heck did you do in this pic? Are you that disrespectful? So Dawn’s fans are like that.)
Zulueta, upon learning about what happened, took to Twitter to admonish her fans.
“Calling the attention of some members: Please refrain from doing this,” Zulueta stated yesterday, Sept. 16, tagging the Twitter handles of her official fan club as well as of the official fan club of her and Gomez’s love team. “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.”
