It was last Tuesday, October 13, when Liza Soberano spoke in a webinar spearheaded by the Gabriela Youth. It was there where she called up influencers to use their platforms to voice out on social issues on women and children.
A day later, internet trolls and bashers attempted to send hate towards her on Twitter because of her appearance on the webinar, trending the hashtag #BoycottLizaSoberano.
Netizens and supporters were quick to defend the actress, using the hashtag to send messages of support towards her.
Me opening my twitter with a trending #BoycottLizaSoberano. Y'all DDS trolls are bashing her because she is not afraid to spit facts about women rights. Y'all are bashing her because she is right and y'all bunch of DDS trolls are wrong and scared to face that y'all are wrong pic.twitter.com/Rf2XbIGDN1— Cloudy Skye (@Skyoelajenaiii) October 14, 2020
#BoycottLizaSoberano trending proves what misogynistic of a society we really have. Women has been conformed to be treated as the weaker kind for so long that younger ones stepping up to abolish that poses a threat to some, who are most likely to be enablers of that practice too.— CJ (@sidjtheday) October 14, 2020
As she said in the webinar, Liza was admittedly afraid to speak up against social issues on women and children in the past. However, she had a changed perspective last September, when a telecom employee made a rape joke against her.
This prompted her to file a complaint against the employee, with another reason being people should know that there are consequences behind their actions.
