Being introduced to the public post-surgery has indeed kept Xander Ford’s name relevant on our online feeds, but sometimes not for the right reasons. After his rift with the Kapamilya talent manager Ogie Diaz, Xander has found himself again on the hit list not long after.
A few days ago, a video wherein an unknown man was overheard bullying the “Teen Queen” Kathryn Bernardo was published by the official Facebook page of Fashion Pulis. The man jokingly plugged “La Luna Sangre” and indirectly called Kathryn “sakang.”
This provoked the netizens, most especially the KathNiel’s army of fans. In his defense, Xander denied that he was the guy speaking in the footage. He added in his official Facebook statement that he cannot do such a thing because he is a fan of the actress as well as her on-screen partner and rumored boyfriend Daniel Padilla.
However, a newly posted full-video has proven that it was indeed Xander Ford pre-surgery. It is unclear whether she was pertaining to the issue, but Kathryn Bernardo then posted an image quote on her Instagram which encouraged the people to embrace who you are.
“Being called names is painful. But one thing about pain is it teaches you something. It teaches you that you are more than hurtful words and labels.You are more than the flaws that people see. You are more than their victim. Choose to stand up against cyberbullying and BE MORE!”
Kathryn then wrote in her caption: “Own who you are.”
Meanwhile, Karla Estrada, mom of Daniel Padilla, also expressed her sentiments on the issue.
“Magtu-tweet din ako Dom about that issue. Maikli lang naman sasabihin ko tungkol diyan,” she said.
“Kung alam mo sa puso mo ang pagkakamali mo, para sa akin, haharapin ko ng buong pagkatao at humingi ng despensa dahil wala namang mawawala sa iyo,” she added.
