WATCH: Kathryn Bernardo responds to ‘sakang,’ ‘chaka’ comments of bashers
Kathryn Bernardo bravely faced her bashers and their negative remarks in a video yesterday, May 16, on her YouTube channel “Everyday Kath”.
Though the video comes days after she spoke up about the issue of the ABS-CBN shutdown, she stated in the clip’s description that it was recorded before the Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine was imposed earlier this March.
Among the comments were jabs at her acting skills, looks and attitude. One remark that she emphasized described her as “sakang” or someone who is bow-legged. Upon reading it, Bernardo exclaimed that she had been anticipating the remark on her legs not being straight.
While it was one of her insecurities before, the actress has now learned to accept them and not be bothered by her legs.
“Yes, it’s not straight. Parang parentheses, ‘yun ‘yung sinasabi nila,” Bernardo said. “Pero parte siya ng pagkatao ko.”
(People say they are like parentheses. But they are a part of who I am.)
She also pointed out that it was her real-life and on-screen partner Daniel Padilla who helped her overcome her insecurity over her legs. Bernardo then stressed that she and Padilla love her legs despite her condition.
The actress also chided the basher, saying, “Come on, you kiss my f*ckin’ legs.”
Meanwhile, another Twitter user (@theapprenticeAG) said that Bernardo’s attitude was “chaka (ugly)” and that she would not have been on the sketch comedy show “Goin’ Bulilit” if it were not for director Bobot Mortiz.
Bernardo stated that she was very thankful for Mortiz and his help in her acting career, but did not agree that she had an ugly attitude.
“Basura is what Kathryn [is] made of… kita mo sa ugali at pagsagot… same ng nanay [niya],” another netizen (@OneLastTime0103) said.
(Trash is what Kathryn is made of… [it is] obvious in her behavior and how she answers back… same with her mother.)
Upon reading the tweet, Bernardo called her mother to see how she would react to the comment. However, the actress’s mom simply joked, saying, “Ohhh… Gaano ba tayo magandang sumagot?”
(Ohhh… How nicely do we answer back?)
Bernardo then advised those who dislike her and other celebrities to simply mute them on social media. On the other hand, she also thanked her fans for their continuous support and love. NVG
