Several netizens commented on this post of the writer-activist. There are those who agreed to him while fans of Vice Ganda fired back.

Twitter user @abbelated18 stated that the most common comment she shared about Vice’s latest movie was “walang kakwenta-kwentang pelikula!”

Another netizen with the user name @susansyng said that it was a “fake news” from the ABS-CBN.

Furthermore, Twitter user @Judge_POng commented that the network is just trying to do a narrative that Vice makes quality movies but for him, all are “trashy”.

On the other hand, there were several netizens who defended Vice Ganda and his movie Fantastica.

Twitter user @satotoolang8 said that those detractors could not just accept that even though they campaigned for “boycott Fantastica”, it still earned a lot.

Moreover, Twitter user @Marcus55681036 commented that critics are just jealous of Vice Ganda’s blockbuster earning.
