Mikoy Morales went on a rant about getting recognized and disrespected in public. His Twitter rant started with him admitting that it used to bother him when he doesn’t get recognized. He added that petty things derailed him from his path.

“Okay, here’s the thing: I don’t know with other artists, but I genuinely don’t care if I do or don’t get recognized in public and I say this with all sincerity, and humility. It used to bother me when people didn’t (or did), but…”

Mikoy shares what ticks him off.

“I worked hard, and still do, to teach myself not to lean on these petty things. It derails me from my path and limits my actions. But you know what ticks me off?”

Morales noted that people suddenly get entitled on pointing out that artists like him isn’t particularly famous.

“When people feel entitled over you just because you’re not “sikat”. Hindi mo ikina-cool yang hindi mo pagkilala sa artista/singer/dancer/etc. at kinailangan mo pang i-impose na hindi ka baduy kasi you “don’t watch T.V.” Why? I mean, does it make you feel good about yourself?”

Mikoy asks people to treat him as a person.

Morales pointed out that a person doesn’t have the right to belittle anyone.

“Andito ako bilang tao, at tatratuhin kita bilang tao. It’s that simple. Bakit kailangan magparinig? Or worse – mang maltrato? Under no circumstance does anyone has the right to belittle anyone. It’s rude and pointless.”

He acknowledged that people would point out that it is a part of his job as an actor. Morales, however, dismissed this idea by describing what they really do.

“”But it’s part of your job.” Nope. Our job is to master our crafts and contribute to the industry as much as we can. It’s the job of the management, marketing team, branding, PR, etc. to protect our names. As for artists, we come as we are.”

Mikoy ends his rant.

Morales noted that netizens tend to put artists on a high pedestal and slam those who are on low ones. He ended his rant with insisting #equality.

“On a bigger aspect, this is proof that our “artistas” in general are glorified and are often put on pedestals too high that authenticity is left below and is condemned by the public. Pero sa totoo lang, pare-parehas lang naman tayong tao. #equality nga, di ba?”

Kristoffer reacts.

Close friends and fellow Kapuso star Kristoffer Martin praised Mikoy for speaking out about this.

“Ito talaga idol ko eh. 🙌🏼

In another report, Kristoffer made his own Twitter rant about his experience on being disrespected in public.
