Veteran columnist Cristy Fermin talked about the attempt of Television and Production Exponents Inc. to create another Eat Bulaga social media page.
It can be recalled that Facebook and Youtube removed the social media pages created by TAPE Inc. after receiving many complaints from netizens who accused the production company of imitating the original pages used before by the Dabarkads before resigning on May 31, 2023.
According to Fermin, TAPE Inc. should stop trying to imitate the original Eat Bulaga page to gain engagement and should create own content.
Fermin’s co-host, Wendell Alvarez, praised the said social media platforms for removing the pages created by TAPE, saying that the companies were listening to the netizens’ complaints.
“Kaya sabi siguro ng Youtube, ‘bigyan naman natin ng respeto ‘yung orihinal’, hindi naman porke nang gaya ka lang ay pwede na,” Fermin said.
The original social media pages of Eat Bulaga, with millions of followers online, were still activated, and observers suspected that those were currently under the possession of TVJ.
It can be recalled that the last post of the original Eat Bulaga pages was a statement from the legendary trio.
“Nag-effort po ang TVJ at Dabarkads, sana ganon din ang gawin niyo. Hindi po tayo pu-pwedeng mabuhay na parang linta na didikit lang tayo sa binti ng isang tao, kukunin natin ang dugo at buhay na tayo,” she said.
“Para makakuha tayo ng bentahe sa totoong tagumpay, kikilos tayo talaga, gagawa tayo ng paraan at ang taumbayan po ang magdedesisyon kung sino ang papanoorin,” she added.
