Slater Young slammed for saying it’s ‘very normal’ to fancy other women while in a relationship
Content creator Slater Young is facing backlash for his remarks that it’s “very normal” for men to fantasize about other women even while in a committed relationship.
The “Pinoy Big Brother” alum was responding to a listener’s story on his podcast last May 9 with wife Kryz Uy. The listener then asked if she was being bad or crazy to think ill of her boyfriend who was fantasizing another woman after she read about it in one of his group chats.
Replying to the query, Slater said that he is in agreement with the guy as he is just “being absolutely honest” about his desires, to which Uy nodded also in conformity. However, he clarified that the guy would be in the wrong if he acted on his fantasies and potentially cheated.
“The guy is being absolutely honest. Kasi siyempre, if I’m going to lie to you, and you ask me if I have boners about other women and if I wanted to lie just to make you comfortable, I’m just gonna say, ‘No, of course not,'” he explained.
His response, however, drew the ire of followers and netizens who said that “fantasizing is different from admiration,” and is not acceptable, as it is tantamount to cheating, especially if one is already committed to a serious relationship. Others claimed that Slater, whose squeaky clean image is known in the local vlogging world, now suddenly became a “red flag” because of his remarks.
Compounding the matter was Kryz’s seeming agreement to his disposition, saying that she trusts Slater not to jeopardize their relationship and would not even interfere with his cellphone to check on his messages. Many criticized this view as they said this would lead to problems later on.
On the other hand, there were those who took Slater’s side, saying he was merely being real about the way some men think. Some said that what the former TV personality claimed to be normal was the fact that guys have group chats where members talk about women.
Slater and Kryz have yet to address the issue on their social media platforms.
