MANILA – Popular love team Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla have reiterated their stand against cyberbullying.

Speaking to ABS-CBN News at the red carpet event of the 2017 Star Magic Ball on Saturday, both stars maintained that online bashing needs to stop because it does not do any good to anyone.

“Siguro 'yung mga tao na kung ano-ano nasasabi online, sana maiwasan. Kasi hindi nila alam 'yung epekto noon sa ibang tao. Hindi siya maganda. Sana 'yun ang ma-promote natin dito especially sa Philippines,” Bernardo said.

Padilla, for his part, acknowledged the advantage of the internet but stressed that it should not be a vehicle to spreading negative vibes.

“Huwag tayong mag-spread ng bad vibes na balita sa internet and huwag tayo nang ba-bad vibes ng taong hindi natin kilala. And be careful kasi baka 'yung iba, mga nanggagamit lang. May mga ganun eh, na mga nagpapanggap. So be careful baka maging biktima tayo,” he said.

Bernardo and Padilla’s statements came amid heavy online bashing against Angel Locsin, who recently joined them again in the top-rating show “La Luna Sangre.”

While many viewers cheered Locsin’s "La Luna Sangre" comeback, there were also those who questioned her return.

However, Star Creatives' creative head Henry Quitain previously clarified that Locsin's new character Jacintha Magsaysay was not just recently added to the show.

"Hindi siya guest ng show; she's a main character of the show. Ginawa ang kuwento na kasama siya. Kasama ang pagbabalik niya siya show. Ang 'La Luna' po ay kuwento ng lahat," Quitain stressed. 

Locsin also downplayed speculations that she is competing with lead stars Bernardo and Padilla.

"Huwag po kayong mag-alala: ito po ay show ni Kathryn at Daniel. Kung anuman po ang mangyayari dito at mga bagong nagaganap ay para sa kanila. Lahat po tayo ay nagtutulungan at wala pong kompetensiya dito," Locsin said.
