Fans of Francine Diaz express anger at ‘Frontline Pilipinas’ because of Andrea Brillantes
FRANCINE DIAZ – Supporters of the Kapamilya actress expressed their frustration with “Frontline Pilipinas” because of Andrea Brillantes.
Instead of seeing Francine, Andrea Brillantes appeared on the monitor of those watching Frontline Pilipinas. Diaz’s fans could not accept that their idol was confused with another actress, leading to the trend on X, “Protect Francine Diaz.”
Obviously, the team behind the TV5 flagship newscast had no ill intentions, and it might have been an honest mistake. However, the mistake was rectified in the Frontline Tonight report.
One netizen commented: “Nobody deserves to be disrespected, especially this pure girl. Lagi na lang siyang ginagawang tagasalo at tagasalba ng iba. Tao po siya, hindi Shield. Do better next time!” Another netizen wrote: “francine diaz doesn’t deserve this kind of insult and disrespect. hindi siya naghirap to reach where she is right now just for the media to continue invalidating her success.”
Meanwhile, some fans edited what was displayed on the monitor to correct the mistake. As of now, TV5 has not provided any response or statement regarding the issue.
