Andrea Brillantes recounted experiencing cancel culture at a young age before.
In the press conference for the upcoming ABS-CBN Entertainment series, Click Like Share, Brillantes said that it happened around 12 years old before social media even coined “canceled.”
“Actually bago pa nagawa yung term na canceled, naranasan ko na po sya ilang beses and at a very, very, very young age. Wala pa akong 13 ata, parang 12 pa lang ako naranasan ko na parang kinalaban ako ng buong mundo.”
However, thanks to her family, Brillantes kept going as an artist despite the bashing online.
“What kept me going was my family, kasi hindi lang po ako basta artista dahil artista ako. Dahil bread winner din ho ako. So hindi ko sya kayang pakawalan, hindi ko kayang pabayaan pamilya ko.”
She adds, “yun yung isa sa mga nagpatibay sa akin na wag mag-give up.”
She also shared what she learned from the experience.
“Minsan kasi mapupunta ka na lang sa point na mapupuno ka na eh. Na matatanggap mo talaga na hindi mo mapi-please lahat ng tao.”
Brillantes, alongside Gold Squad Members Francine Diaz, Kyle Echarri, and Seth Fedelin, top bill the social media-themed anthology series, Click Like Share. Helmed by Manny Palo, joining them are Squad Plus members Nio Tria, Renshi De Guzman, Danica Ontengco, and Jimuel Pacquiao.
The ABS-CBN Entertainment series in association with Dreamscape Entertainment and Kreativ Den premieres this June 5. The anthology series streams every Saturday at 6 PM on KTX.ph and iWantTFC.
