Daniel Padilla simply shrugged off a viral photo showing him inside a coffin.
The edited image, with the text “RIP,” made the rounds online last week.
“Okay iyon, parang Undertaker lang ako nu’n,” he said of the photo, which was supposedly also captioned “RIP.”
When shown the image during an interview with ABS-CBN, he added, “Parang totoo, ang galing ng gumawa. Okay lang.”
Such are the hassles of popularity, and the inherent troubles and dangers of our increasingly connected world.
While Daniel was quite nonchalant about it, some fans couldn’t hide their disgust.
Onscreen partner and rumored girlfriend Kathryn Bernardo also made a reaction towards viral “RIP” meme. The image depicted Daniel Padilla inside a casket, with onscreen partner and rumored girlfriend Kathryn Bernardo made to appear at his side.
Kathryn has her share of haters but she simply chose to ignore them.
“Hindi naman nawawala iyon. Dati hindi mo maaalis na maapektuhan ka, pero now, okay lang. Hindi ko na pinapansin kasi part naman talaga iyon kung may mag-la-love naman sa iyo,” she said.
A year after their teleserye “Got to Believe” ended, Kathryn and Daniel are back on TV very soon with the remake of “Pangako Sa ’Yo.”
Kathryn will portray the role of Yna Macaspac, which was previously portrayed by Kristine Hermosa.
Angelica Panganiban and Jodi Sta. Maria will also star in the upcoming teleserye.
“Malapit na and medyo madami na silang nati-taping. Soon malapit na kami mag-taping, so I’m very excited,” she said.
Kathryn Bernardo nag-react sa viral post ng fan na litrato ni Daniel Padilla na nasa loob ng kabaong “Hindi na nakakatuwa iyon, below the belt na iyon pero hindi na namin masyado inisip ni DJ… Huwag na lang siguro pansinin kasi feeling namin mga bata ang gumawa noon. Kung sino man ang gumawa noon alam niya siguro na mali iyon at sana iyon na iyong huli na mangyari iyon.”
