Francine Diaz and Andrea Brillantes hit back at their bashers.
“Gold Squad” members Francine Diaz and Andrea Brillantes hit back at their bashers as they talked about being victims of this generation’s cancel culture online.
With the upcoming premiere of iWantTFC’s new digital anthology “Click, Like, Share”, Andrea and Francine shared the best and forgettable experiences they’ve had online.
To recall, Andrea and Mobile Legends streamer Akosi Dogie faced off at 515 E-party MLBB All Star Showmatch held last May 22, 2021. Unfortunately, her team lost the 5v5 match as Dogie’s team managed to win the game.
But prior to the showmatch, Andrea started her first gaming stream by playing Mobile Legends.
Andrea shared that her first experience livestreaming while gaming online was not the best experience for her. According to her, it’s hard for her to set up a gaming livestream because she didn’t know much about technie stuff and also didn’t have the livestream yet.
The actress also shared that her wifi connection wasn’t good at that time and so her livestream took three parts because her connection couldn’t handle it.
“Kabadong kabado ako kasi ayoko talaga na nag-la-livestream kasi bilang artista, ang dami na kagad mag-ko-comment sa ‘yo na, ‘Artista lang ang pangit hindi marunong maglaro.’ Tapos grandmaster lang naman ako at hindi ako magaling at inaamin ko naman yun pero kasi kilala ko ang mga tao sa FB, kahit simpleng bagay pagtatawanan ka nila,” Andrea relayed.
Despite the bashers, Andrea admitted that she’s also surprised when her stream racked up almost half a million views.
On the other hand, Francine shared that she wasn’t as active on social media as her fellow “Gold Squad” members, only choosing to post promotion about the “Gold Squad” and her work.
Francine also revealed their experience after being victimized by the “cancel culture” online. The actress was also hoping that love and respect can be spread all over the world.
“Sana mabawasan yung ganun and matigil kasi tao rin naman kaming mga artista. Meron kaming nararamdaman. Hindi kami porke’t laging naka-smile sa camera wala na kaming pinagdadaanan or wala na kaming nararamdaman na sakit. Sana mas ma-spread yung respect and love sa lahat, sa buong mundo,” Francine said.
