The basher is apparently a Carlo Aquino fan who said that his or her idol is affected by whatever Angelica does, and is judged by others even if there’s no evidence against him. The basher further advised the actress to grow up and not lay out everything on social media, and reminded the actress that she and Carlo are not teeners anymore.
Angelica Panganiban responded by saying she never even knew there was an issue against her. She apologized and said that she would avoid Carlo Aquino so she wouldn’t be judged and so she would not unduly have an “impact” on Carlo Aquino anymore, as the basher claimed. Her response was a mixture of hurt and sarcasm, apparently because she was offended by the arrogant stance of the basher.
Here’s Angelica Panganiban’s full reply to the basher:

Wow. Sa lahat ng na offend ko. Sorry. Hindi ko alam na may issue pala kayo sakin. From now on, hindi na ko mag sasalita. Huling caption ko na po ito. Kasi nakakahiya sa inyong mga nasaktan ko. Tama ka. Madaldal ako. So tatahimik na ko. I will act my age po. Sorry po. Hindi na kayo makakarinig ng kahit na ano sakin regarding carlo. Lalayuan ko na din para hindi na lang ako mahusgahan at hindi na po siya mahirapan sa sinasabi niyong “impact” na ginagawa ko para madehado po siya. Happy po? Thank you. Sana po maintindihan niyo at mapatawad niyo ko. Pagod na din ako sa kanegahan at pakekelam ninyo. Nasaktan na din ako. So tama na.
[Wow. To everyone I have offended. Sorry. I do not know that you have an issue about me. From now on, I would not talk anymore. This is my last caption. Because I feel ashamed to those I may have hurt. You are right. I am talkative. So I would just keep quiet. I will act my age. I am sorry. You will not hear anything from me regarding Carlo. I will also stay away from him so I would not be judged and he will not find it difficult to deal with the “impact” I do which puts him at a disadvantage. Are you happy? I hope you understand and forgive me. I am also tired with your negativity and meddling. I was hurt too. So that is enough.]
After that post, Angelica Panganiban unfollowed Carlo Aquino on Instagram. She then posted on Twitter that she and Carlo were getting along fine, but it was ruined by the bashers.
In a series of tweets, Angelica Panganiban said that she hopes that the bashers’ idol (Carlo) would also be happy now that she is avoiding Carlo Aquino and that he would be at peace.
In later tweets, Angelica Panganiban remarked that she let everyone into her life, so why is she being hurt? She said she needs to distance herself because everything is tainted by showbusiness. And that it’s for the good of everyone concerned.
When her Twitter followers gave encouraging words of support, Angelica thanked them and said she’s just human and need support in times of need. In her last tweet, Angelica Panganiban posed the question: What’s the difference between bullies and bashers?
Netizens have reacted with Angelica’s tweets and IG post, saying that there must be a deeper reason for Angelica to avoid Carlo. They could not believe that Angelica’s decision could only be in reaction to a basher.
For whatever reason that Angelica seems bent on staying away from Carlo Aquino, their fans are already starting to feel sad with what’s happening.
