Must be the heat or the prolonged lockdown.
It seems that some fans couldn’t separate reel from real anymore.
Just recently, a fan posted a direct message to actor John Arcilla.
The netizen wrote, “Hoy hwg ka mangarap Na mgng president ng buong Pilipinas galng mo nmn kung ikw ang papalit mgng president ng Pilipinas ngpatawa ka ba ah eh sa role mo plng sa probinsyano ngkakagago ka noh drug addict ka!”
Obviously, the fan was referring to his character in “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano,” Renato “Buwitre” Hipolito.
The awarded actor wrote back, “Hindi ko po alam kung seryoso siya o nagpapatawa. Relax ka lang… ang teleserye ho e hindi totoong buhay. Chill chill lang po.”
Note that he isn’t the first actor in the show to earn hatred from fans.
Prior, Michael de Mesa, who plays the role of Ramil “Manager” Taduran in the show actually received a death threat from a fan.
He told the netizen: “Ganun ba ako ka effective? Bro, teleserye lang yan. Wag masyadong seryoso. Positive vibes lang…”
