Tililing star Baron Geisler had something to say to netizens bashing Liza Soberano for her statement on the Viva Films offering's official poster!

After Liza Soberano’s statement regarding the poster for the Viva Films offering Tililing became the talk of the town on social media, Baron Geisler, one of the movie’s lead stars, asked netizens not to bash the actress for what she had to say.

It could be recalled that Liza, a known advocate of mental health, took to Twitter on Monday, February 8, and wrote how she hoped the movie, written and directed by Darryl Yap, would spread awareness on mental health issues and slammed the poster for making it seemed like mental health was a joke.

“Really hoping that this movie will spread awareness and enlighten us on the struggles of dealing with mental health. But the poster? It’s a no for me. Mental health is NOT a joke. Stop the stigma,” Liza wrote on social media.

Yap made a statement regarding Liza’s tweet through a post on the VinCentiments Facebook page, saying that they will not let her down when it comes to promoting mental health awareness. He added that the film’s stars went through trials that strengthened their mental health, as well. 

“[S]igurado kaming hindi nila tatanggapin ang isang proyektong ikapapahamak ng kanilang prinsipyo at pagkatao; Matatalino ang aking mga artista, at matapang ang kanilang direktor,” he wrote. “Kapag napanood niyo na po ang #Tililing ay mauunawaan ninyo bakit ito ang titulo, bakit nakalabas ang kanilang dila; at bakit namin tinitindigan ang kalidad at mensahe ng pelikula. Kaisa po ninyo kami sa inyong adbokasiya. Maraming Salamat po.”


Sa iyo Miss Liza Soberano, Ang iyong pag-asa na sana’y makapagbigay liwanag ang aming pelikula sa pagpapalawak ng...

In the comments section of the said post, Baron wrote to Liza’s bashers, telling them to be kind as she did not mean to look down on the movie poster.

“Please Don’t bash Liza. Please be kind. Sometimes we get overprotective with our advocacies. She did not mean to look down on the poster,” the actor wrote. “I believe she meant well folks. Please be kind. Masakit ma bash naranasan natin lahat Yan one way or another.”

On Twitter, Liza thanked Baron for his kind words and apologized if she offended anyone with her statement, saying she only wanted the best for films that discuss mental health.

“Thank you kuya Baron for the kind words and sorry if I have offended anyone. I’m afraid my intentions were misinterpreted. I always want the best for films that tap into mental health, so I wish this film all the best. Looking forward to seeing it,” she wrote.

Some netizens, however, did not think Liza should have apologized, as she was just looking for a good and proper representation of mental health awareness.

Yap has garnered criticism for his past films that featured sensitive and thought-provoking themes.

Tililing, which was scheduled for a 2020 release but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will have a premiere this 2021.
