It’s 2018, and Alden Richards is being bombarded with hate posts due to accusations that (1) he’s a bad person because he said some cuss words off-cam (the Eat Bulaga one is technically off-cam); and (2) because he called someone ‘gaga’ in such a way that did not fit their definition of a manly-man-voice, they concluded that he’s gay.
First of all: WOW. Allow me to pause for a few moments while I laugh my head off in amusement. Thank you.
Second of all: really? He’s being maligned on socmed for these reasons? What century are we in?
With regard to the cussing issue: In the first place, contrary to what the bashers are saying, he did not utter those words in anger. Certainly not towards a child.
Secondly, ‘kingina’ and ‘gaga’ aren’t really cuss words.
Lastly, wow naman, ang lilinis n’yo ah. Hindi kayo nagmura, ever? Really? And why should that be your sole basis in judging a person? Why should anyone be judged in the first place?
Per my experience in the real world, the most vicious persons are the ones whom I’ve never heard utter a single cuss word in public. I’d rather choose a person who utters cuss words on a regular basis but are, generally, decent human beings than people who never cussed (or, at least, not openly) but are too quick to place harsh judgment and even convince other people to join them in spewing vitriol towards another person for no apparent reason other than sheer hatred.
As for the gay issue…
Ahm, really? Being gay is still an issue? I am appalled that in this day and age, and in a country like the Philippines which culture is more accepting of the LGBT community than most Asian nations, there are still people who use the word ‘gay’ as an insult.
Alden Richards is an artist. We idolize artists because of their craft and their work attitude (and, in most cases, their physical appearance ). Unless you idolized him because of his sexual orientation – really, who does that? – his personal preferences are none of our business.
I can say this with conviction, though. I can’t go into details, but I know that this guy is 100% NOT gay. He’s actually a typical straight guy. I mean, which gay man would unabashedly wear the same pants more than twice?
That’s not my only basis. And no, the way he talks nor his hand gestures aren’t my basis, neither.
Alden isn’t perfect. Nobody is. But that’s exactly the reason why people like us, his fans, are drawn towards him. Alden Richards is a HUMAN BEING.
