Newest Kapuso leading ladies Thia Thomalla and Mikee Quintos opened up about being bashed online after it was announced that the two of them will be paired to Alden Richards in the upcoming television series ‘The Gift’.
In their interview with Pep, the two female stars were asked about their experiences about bullying and bashing after their were paired with Alden whose love team with phenomenal star Maine Mendoza is known to have massive following.
Thia shared: “I always have believed na there are a lot of people you can’t please, and then some people who will not be happy about what you do or whatever you are doing in your life.”
“But what I admire about Alden’s fans would be that they are very protective kay Alden. And I admire that kasi bihira na lang yung loyalty sa mga fans ngayon. I think, you know, that he is very lucky with them to have them in his life,” she added.

Mikee meanwhile answered: “Yes, to answer that question din. Meron din naman po akong mga nababasa since my first-ever project, Encantadia. Feeling ko na-build ko sa sarili ko, ayokong nagbabasa ng mga comments—good or bad—kasi madali akong ma-hurt.”
“Pero na-realize ko din na hindi siya maiiwasan. At the end of the day, yung mga taong nakakasalubong mo every day, yung mga ngumingiti pag nakikita ka, sila yung nagpapaalala sa akin kung bakit ako nandito,” said Mikee.
“The Gift” will premiere on GMA Telebabad this coming September 16.
