Pokwang lambasted an unnamed content creator for lack of sensitivity by starting a trend that appeared to demean and make fun of canned sardines just for the sake of content, something that left a poor taste in the actress-host’s mouth.

On Instagram, Pokwang expressed her dismay at the vlogger as she prepared to cook a can of sardines that she said she grew up eating, being a typical fare of most Filipino families, especially those who have less in life.


“Walang problema kung ayaw mo sa isang pagkain, pero yung umarte ka at umasta na para bang diring diri ka sa uri ng pagkain, na ‘yun lang ang kaya ng karamihan sa ting kababayan, napaka insensitive mo ha,” she wrote in her caption.


“Mga tao talaga ngayon makagawa lang ng content, kahit mawalan na ng pusong tao walang pakialam for the views!!!!! Very evil!!! May kabayaran lahat ‘yan hindi pa ngayon, pero binibilang ni God yan pati mga panglalalit nyo,” she further said.

In the video, Pokwang discussed that she lived off her childhood days eating canned food, which she considered her “happy food,” and that it’s also her youngest daughter’s favorite food as well.

“Kinalakihan namin ng mga kapatid ko dahil walang wala kaming pera kung ano lang ‘yung meron pinagkakasya,” she said. “Si Malia na anak ko, mestizang mestiza diba? Ang ganda ganda ng anak ko, pero gustong gusto ang sardinas.” 

This was why, she said, that the content was in poor taste, as it appeared not only make fun of the food’s quality, but also of the people who had no choice in life but to consume what their budget only allows.

“Kaya ‘yung mga gumagawa jan ng content na para bang diring diri sa sardinas para minandirihan mo na lang kung ano lang ‘yung kayang kainin ng mga kababayan natin na naghihirap na hindi naman nila gustong maging mahirap. ‘Wag ganon teh. Ang sarap nito,” she said.


In the comment section, fellow celebrities Lotlot De Leon, Geneva Cruz, and singer Jaya expressed support for Pokwang’s sentiments by commenting, “I love you,” and lots of emoji hearts on the latter’s video.

While Pokwang did not name the content creator, the sardines-eating challenge appeared to be gaining ground on social media.

In the video, the vlogger, who has made several content about him trying on different food challenges, appeared to have a hard time downing a forkful of sardines straight from the can. The content producer said he is very much bothered by the smell of the sardines as well as its slimy texture, as he tried to hold in a gag a few times.
