When it comes to getting bashed, the 34-year-old director Darryl Yap is no stranger to such and is always on top of being one.
He does not mind getting such attention. In fact, during Vivamax’s UAE virtual press conference, the director behind Pornstar revealed why he loves getting bashed.
“Bash is cash.”
That is the reason why Yap loves the hate coming from his critics.
According to him, he likes when people bash him on his page rather than on other social media pages. It is because of the so-called engagements, which in turn leads to views, resulting in a good payout.
“When you get bashed, you get tons of engagement. Because when they bash you lalo na sa page mo– kaya nga ganto eh, medyo nanghihina ako pag binabash nila ako sa page nila. Kasi sa kanila napupunta yung engagements,” said the director.
Truth is, when he is getting criticized through his page, he is awfully in a good mood.
“Pero pag sa page ko, nagpapatreat pa ako sa team,” he added.
However, there are certain limitations when it comes to bashing.
Yap is fine when he constantly gets the heat coming from his haters as long as it does not involve his family.
“Bash is cash as long as my family is not being hurt.
“My family is not dragged into some issues. Okay lang ako kahit anong imbentuhin. Pero sometimes you have limitations,” he said.
With Yap sometimes reaching his limit, he takes his time to boast his artists and prove his critics wrong.
“Ako pa naman pag dumadami yung issues, pumapatol ako. Mayabang ako hindi para sa sarili ko, mayabang ako para sa mga artista ko,” he warned his critics.
But what hurts the director is that most of the bashing he received are from the same industry he is in.
“Sa totoo lang what pains me, what burdens me, is that a huge amount of bashing papunta sa akin, comes from the people in the industry.”
Still, he understands where such hate is coming from. Since he did not go through the normal process of becoming a director, many raised questions as to how he got the opportunity to create movies without being an assistant director first.
“I understand kasi I’m not like them. Ako hindi ako dumaan sa pagiging production assistant, hindi ako dumaan sa pagiging assistant director. From social media content creator, tumalon talaga ako na maging direktor. So yung mga nauna sa akin, magtataas ng mga kilay yang mga yan. Naintindihan ko sila,” said the director.
With all the criticism he received, Yap always tells people that the only way to stop him is by not giving him attention.
“Ang sabi ko nga kung galit kayo sakin, wag niyo ako pansinin. Yun lang ang tanging paraan para mawala ako,” Yap said.
But people love hating him, and he is good at triggering people’s emotions.
