Kiray Celis has been posting photos of food on her social media accounts which she says is her way of supporting food businesses in the light of the pandemic.
But some bashers think that the 24-year-old star is more of boasting than promoting.
“Ang daming utak talangka! Hindi po ako nagpopost ng mga pagkain para inggit lahat ng walang makain. Pinopost ko ito bilang tulong sa mga business o resto na patay ang negosyo ng dahil sa quarantine nato.”
She also clarified that the owners are the ones messaging her to help promote their respective businesses.
“At karamihan sa mga nagmemessage sakin na business owner eh nagpapapromote sila para daw may sahod lahat ng nagtratrabaho sakanila. 😞 kaya again, hindi masama na wag magisip ng masama.. lalo na sa kapwa!”
As seen on the Instagram page of Kiray, most of her recent posts were endorsements of different small food businesses.
Netizens were happy with Kiray’s small gesture to help these small businesses to keep on going amid COVID-19 crisis.
Angeline Quinto recently had a similar incident where she was bashed by the netizens just because she showcased her spread of food provided by some of her friends.
The spread included an ample assortment of fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, and meat to last her days while on lockdown.
But Angeline replied to her bashers in a very respectful manner that the intention of the post was to thank the people who gave her the food.
