Singer and comedian Kakai Bautista couldn’t hide her disappointment in the comments made by motivational speaker Rendon Labador against comedian Michael V.
In a Facebook comment, Kakai joined other celebrities to defend Bitoy from Rendon who called the comedian ‘laos’ or unpopular already.
Rendon believed that social media influencers like him are now more popular than traditional celebrities being shown on television.
“INFLUENCERS are the new celebrities! Kung hindi ninyo kayang makipagpatalinuhan sa mga INFLUENCERS sa pag-produce ng content.. manahimik na lang kayo. MAINSTREAM IS DEAD!!! Social media is the NEW MAINSTREAM.” Rendon said.
However, Kakai reminded Rendon to keep his feet on the ground because fame is only temporary.
“Wag masyadong mataas ang lipad kapatid. Sa industryang ito, hindi na din nagma-matter ang KASIKATAN, and pinakaGoal ay kung sino ang MAGTATAGAL,” Kakai said.
Other celebrities including Kuya Kim Atienza and Joross Gamboa also made their response to Rendon.
“Kuya Michael V. daming tinamaan… yung isa nga sa mukha eh. but seriously speaking… kapul talaga… deh eto totoo na umiiyak na siya. anyways… Quality > Quantity, Purpose & Responsibility.” said Joross.
“It’s not about views. It’s about value.” Kim stated.
Rendon replied to the celebrities saying that they should accept the fact that they’re not famous already.
“Kahit mag kampihan pa kayong lahat, wala akong paki alam. Bakit hindi ninyo matanggap na mga laos na kayo? Masakit na katotohanan yan na kailangan ninyong lunukin.” Rendon said.
