Maris Racal is no stranger to being a target of trolls.
In an exclusive interview with the actress today, May 27, she spoke out about becoming a subject of hate and bashing online after she aired out her personal opinions on political issues that the country experienced last April.
“Nagkaroon ako ng isang buwan na hindi nag-internet not because I'm affected or hurt, but because ayaw ko lang talaga silang mag-comment,'” she said.
According to Maris, she learned a lot from the experience. She shared, "Na-realize ko na may mga tao talaga na hindi makaka-accept sa opinions ng iba and that's okay. Parang in-expect ko naman na may backlash towards that tweet kasi siyempre that moment na-dishearten lang talaga ako sa mga nangyayari and I think I'm free to express that. Ni-let go ko na lang 'yung situation, hinayaan ko na lang 'yung time na mag-ayos nito."
“Thankfully I did that, kasi the more na nag-engage ka sa problem na ‘yun, the more na mas lalaki ‘yung issue. Gladly, I'm okay now,” she added.
