Nikko tweeted that he wasn’t surprised that some people were unable to understand what he really meant by his post.
Netizens would have to agree.

Nikko said that these trolls can use social media apps but still lack reading comprehension.
Nikko then thanked his fans who supported him and understood what message he wants to convey. He shared he wasn’t affected at all and enjoys teasing those trolls and bashers.
Hashtag Nikko Natividad made his showbiz debut via the “Gandang Lalake” contest of ABS-CBN’s Noontime show, It’s Showtime in October 2014. Nikko eventually emerged as the winner and it paved way for several opportunities for him to reach his dream of becoming a star.
