Gerald Anderson Responds to Girlfriend Maja Salvador’s Bashers
By FFE Entertaiment News Staff
In the wake of continuous online bashing directed towards Maja Salvador, boyfriend Gerald Anderson stepped up and showed his support. This comes after Maja’s August 12 post via Instagram telling her fans to ignore the haters and become better people. In the same post, she also extends her appreciation to fans who have continued to show their support despite the negative response.
During a bloggers conference with Philippine Entertainment Portal for the film OTJ, Gerald said that the prevalence of online bashing cannot be helped. He also added that there have been times when he and Maja have thought that the bashing had reached a critical point. The online bashing towards Maja stems from unhappy netizens who have been long time fans of Gerald’s ex-girlfriend and Maja’s former close friend Kim Chiu.
Gerald emphasized that artists who receive bashing also get hurt, saying “May feelings din kami, tao rin kami” (We also have feelings, we’re only human). Perhaps because of this, Gerald remains to keep quiet about their relationship.
When asked how the couple has been coping with work despite the negative feedback, Gerald refused to give an answer, saying instead “Sa amin na po yon” (That’s between the two of us). He also added that while the status of their relationship is public knowledge, the relationship itself remains private.
