An irate netizens asked fellow Davaoenos to boycott GMA shows after one of its female artists posted a photo on Instagram with an accompanying caption that puts Davao City in a bad light.
Davaoena Mary Joy de Guzman was referring to GMA 7 artist with the instagram handle valdezkate_ who recently visited Davao City and enjoyed its hospitality but for whatever reason, went home badmouthing the city on social media.
De Guzman wrote a caption accompanying the photo to express her sentiment.
Concernlang!!! Kanang isa ka artist sa GMA7 unya moadto Davao tapos. Ani Ang post nya sa Instagram? Hala ka besh mo support pka sa ilang show??? Hahahaha why you said so???
Translation: “Just concerned! This one artist from GMA7 visited Davao and then. This was her Instagram post? Besh (referring to friends), would you still support their shows?? Hahahaha why you said so???”
De Guzman’s post quickly gathered momentum as fellow Davaoenos who feel slighted of the Instagram post of the GMA7’s young female actress descended on the post.
In a matter of hours, the post has generated 2,690 shares, 1400 plus reactions and 589 comments on Facebook.
In retaliation, Davaoenos slammed the GMA7 artist for having a ‘star mentality’ or flooded with “who is she anyway” comments in the thread.
Babie Pretencio Eh sa palagay mo sikat ka? Mind you nobody will be interested you here in Davao you’re no sikat in here..
Dyn Lozada Sino pala yan sya? Wala nmang mang aano sa kanya sa davao kahit maglakad lakad pa sya sa highway.
Reuel Lagura Kate, don’t play with the lion’s tail for regret will sure to come on your doorstep or that will signal the end of your showbiz career itself.
However level-headed netizens tell fellow Davaoenos not make a big deal out of it.
Eunice Reposar Montejo Ayaw ninyo e-big deal na. Ang sitwasyon sa airport medyo hadlok na gyud labaw na daghan delay and cancelled flight. Ang mga passenger dira kadaghanan suko and worst nagawild na. Maong nakapost siguro sya ana kay gusto na gyud sya mouli. Wa man sya nag ingon na ang davao gyud iyang gikahadlokan. Tan.awa usa ang picture maam. Ginapadako ninyo ang issue. Against po ako sa nagadown sa Davao pero I think inyoha lang na misinterpret ang post.
Kyla Chiu defended the young GMA actress. Sis! Wrong masyado pag intindi mo sa post nya. Di namn yan natatakot dahil takot sya sa davao. Takot yan na Di makauwi dahil sa sobrang dami stranded. Imagine 12hrs delay lahat ng flights tas yung iba cancel pa.panu di ka matatakot? Hehe na misunderstood nyo lang post nya.
Chiu added who wouldn’t be scared when this too many people were stranded in the airport and can’t go home. Ganto ba naman kadami tao stranded? Di ka matatakot? Baka Di ka makauwi. I don’t know her, but saksi jd kos kahimtang sa mga flights start atung 17 til ka ganina. 2days stranded ang uban dli makabyahe. Swerte na ug 12hrs delay imong flight!
