Bianca Gonzalez-Intal recently addressed how rivalry among fans are “getting out of hand.” The actress-host elaborated on Twitter: “The pressure that some fans put on themselves to trend is getting out of hand. I hope they know that’s not what matters most.”

The tweet gained mixed reactions from netizens. One tweeted: “Why out of hand @iamsuperbianca? Kung show mo ba ang may million trends ganyan din kaya reaction mo?” [Rough Translation: “If your show had a million tweets, would you react this way, too?”]

Although Mrs. Intal didn’t mention a particular tandem, fans of popular pair AlDub (Eat Bulaga’s kalyeserye love team made up of Alden Richards and Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza) posted their thoughts on the issue.

@ObligedToWin responded: “@iamsuperbianca aldub’s tweets are real&organic compared to your soul-less retwets from PBB.”

Bianca defended her “general” tweet: “Why are you defensive? I never EVER said Aldub tweets are not real. You have phenomenal numbers. Walang mali sa sinasabi ko.” [Rough Translation: “I didn’t say anything wrong.”]

Bianca then clarified that she’s not specifically targeting a particular fandom.  She replied to another AlDub fan: “Sino ba nag-assume para sa Aldub fans ang tweet ko? Like I said, phenomenal ang numbers niyo. Wag defensive. Its for all fandoms.” [Rough Translation: Whoever assumed that my tweet was for Aldub fans? Like I said, your numbers are phenomenal. Don’t be defensive.]

The 32-year-old model further explained that “Its not about networks, its about young people being aware and balancing their real and online life.”

However, Bianca’s tweet also gained some positive response from other AlDub fans. @giancocoy tweeted: “May nang aaway na naman na AlDub fans. Ngayon si @iamsuperbianca naman ang target. Remember guys, good vibes lang. #ALDUBThirdMonthsary” [Rough Translation: “Some AlDub fans are arguing with someone again. Now @iamsuperbianca is their target. Remember guys, only spread good vibes.”]

Bianca replied: “Salamat [Translation: Thank you] for seeing the point and being open minded that you aren’t being attacked.”
