Mark became a trending topic on Twitter, Tuesday, December 3, after Yulo tweeted a screengrab of the singer-actor’s private message.
Yulo admitted that he was shocked when the singer-actor suddenly followed and DM’d him on Twitter.
Twitter immediately erupted with mixed reactions from netizens.
Some are faulting Yulo for posting what should have been a private message, but others see nothing wrong about it but a simple ‘star struck’ moment.
The gays are hating Mark Bautista for simply congratulating Carlos Yulo. You are all sexualizing the kid these past few days and kayo pa talaga may ganang mag-call out? HAHAHA

People are so judgemental nowadays. Instead of being happy, sisirain pa reputation ng iba. And why is gender that important?? Like duh

Ang issue nila??!! Masama na bang mag congratulate and maging proud for someone who had a great contribution for our country’s pride?

I'll support you as an athlete but posting a screenshot of a harmless private message was totally unnecessary ✌

Now ang daming nagproprove na low talaga ang bansa natin sa reading comprehension. We are better than this. Yulo was just admiring Bautista.

Nothing wrong with the DM and the follow. But Carlos gave Mark a generous amount of attention by posting screenshots. Attention spurs conversations.

Hala. Aren't private messages meant to be private? Carlos, please think before you click.

I wonder how many of the commenters here were angry during Alex Diaz's outing incident and make fun of Mark Bautista's DM to Yulo?!
