Despite her efforts, some people have bashed Pokwang, calling her “papansin.”

She posted a quote on Instagram as a reaction to bashers. The quote said, “Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. Sa mga nakukunsensya sa mga posts ko ng pagtulong and calling me papansin, problema niyo na yan! Pumikit na lang kayo at manalangin! ‘Yan na lang sana maitulong niyo sa bayan natin.”

[“Damned if you do, damned if you don’t For those feeling bad at my posts for helping, and for those calling me an attention-seeker, that’s your problem! Close your eyes and pray! That’s what you can do to help our country.”]

Pokwang captioned the photo with, “Naiiyak ako sa galit sa inyo. Sa ganito pa talagang panahon? Hindi ito ang tamang oras!” [“I’m crying out of anger. You’re doing this at this time? This is not the right time!”]

In a separate post, she reminded her followers to be responsible in using social media. She said, “Ito ang tamang panahon para gamitin sa tama ang social media. Mag hikayat at magkalat ng good vibes hindi pang ba-bash.” [“This is the right time to use social media properly. Lift each other and spread good vibes, not bashing.”]
