Aiko Melendez on Celebrities Snubbing Their Fans: “Right Attitude Lasts a Lifetime”

Aiko Melendez took to Facebook to express her opinion on the topic of celebrities snubbing their fans in public—a post that has gone viral online as many of her fans, her friends, and netizens agreed with her sentiment.

“My take and view sa pagiging snob ng mga artista. Ako kasi kapag me bumabati sa akin o magpapapicture kahit gaano na ako kapagod pinagbibigyan ko, Ang rason ko lagi hindi naman naten alam kung first and last encounter mo na dun sa taong yun eh so ung mga simpleng gestures like saying HI! Or pagbigyan ng picture taking ok lang yan. Hindi naman kawalan sa pagkatao nyo yan,” she began.

According to Aiko, there is always a right time for everything, and there are only special cases when celebrities should reject a request for a picture. She cites examples like being in the emergency room or attending a wake as places when picture-taking is inappropriate. Otherwise, she advises her colleagues in the industry to just stay out of public spaces.

Ang artista, politicians, athletes, influencers, etc. considered as a public figure. Give credit also to your fans na iniidolo kayo ung simpleng time mo,” she added. “If you want your fans to respect your private time, I suggest don’t go to public places otherwise hindi mo talaga maiiwasan na me matuwa na nakakakilala syo ang mag hi and hello or papakuha ng picture sa inyo.

Tandaan humility! Fame is all temporary but right attitude lasts a lifetime,” she ended her post. “Be nice and kind!”
