It looks like Carlo Aquino still can't break free of the negativity that he gets from bashers on social media.
Ever since Carlo's photos with a girl he's rumored to be dating surfaced online, plus things went sour between him and ex-girlfriend Angelica Panganiban, he has constantly been on the receiving end of heavy criticism from netizens.
In an interview, Carlo opened up about how he handles all the harsh comments. "Hindi mo na maha-handle 'yon e, 'di ba?" he responded with a laugh.
"Parang, well, doon naman sila masaya, 'di ba?" he said, when asked if he has already gotten used to it. "Katulad nga ng sinabi ko, kung masaya ako, bakit ko sila aanuhin? E masaya sila sa [pagpalaganap] ng galit."
Carlo also admitted that he has tried disabling comments on his Instagram account just so he wouldn't see the negative feedback, but he realized that the bashing wouldn't cease anytime soon, anyway. He also wanted to be able to defend those affected who were not involved with the decisions he's made.
"Nag-ganon ako," he shared. "Kasi noong time na hindi mo na kaya 'di ba, pati yung attacks sa mga malalapit sa 'yo. Okay lang yung kung sa akin e. Pero kung sa mga taong wala namang kinalaman sa desisyon na na ginawa ko sa buhay ko, bakit 'di ba? Bakit mo gaganunin? So in-off ko. In-on ko rin eventually. Sabi ko, 'di pala sila titigil talaga kahit na ganong katagal."
At the end of the day, Carlo is trying to remain cool about it all. While he admits he's not perfect just like everyone else, the reality is that his life will always be in the public eye and his mistakes will always be subject to people's judgment.
"'Di ba lahat naman tayo nagkakamali e," he said. "'Di ba? Sino ba naman yung taong perpekto nga 'di ba, sabi ko. Sila rin naman nagkamali although kami nga, magnified, under scrutiny kami lagi sa mga tao. E ganoon siguro yung media."
