Kapuso actress Heart Evangelista recently lectured a netizen who called her out for posting photos of her donations on Instagram.
The netizen found her posts altruistic and even branded it as ‘inappropriate’ believing that Evangelista only posts photos of her donations to boost her ego.
The netizen commented, “@iamheartee, I saw one particular actress from the Philippines who gave a lot of time to share her blessings to the community but not a single picture of her with all her donations, time and effort.
“I suggest you reduce those ‘altruism’ pictures of yours because it’s inappropriate–oh well if it uplifts your ego–you are feeding that ego in a pathetic direction. You give, you give–“
The said post was made on April 24 when the fashion icon thanked her sponsors, in particular the local clothing brand, Kamiseta, for donating 500 face shields which will be distributed to the frontliners in Manila and Sorsogon.
Responding to the mean comment, the 35-year-old actress pointed out that her donations “are not out for people to see” and she’s only posting pictures of the donations from companies for a matter of transparency.
She added, “Now go on to your real account and do something good. Maybe pray… in a room where no one will see you but God.”
Since an enhanced community quarantine was imposed in Luzon in March, Heart has been one of the many celebrities who have been busy helping the frontline workers.
She also reached out to those badly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, especially to the people who have lost their jobs given the country’s situation by giving away relief goods.
In her latest vlog, the actress shared how she’s helping others get through this crisis.
Aside from providing personal protective equipment to the frontliners in Sorsogon, Evangelista also sends financial aid to those who DM her on Twitter and gives away relief goods to people in need out in the street.
She also joined the GMA Artist Center’s fundraiser, #KapusoProjectRiceUp, which is a fundraising effort for sacks of rice which will be distributed to families who are greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
