The news about the Amazon fire shocked many, especially those who have environmental advocacy, and celebrities in the Philippines also expressed their reaction but netizens answered them “kaplastikan”.

It was indeed a devastating scenario to see the Amazon blazing with fire as everyone knows it is home to various wild animals and plants. The fire broke the hearts of environmentalists, as well as those who are advocating for a better environment.

Several celebrities in the Philippines also expressed their sympathy to what happened through their social media accounts such as Gerald Anderson, KC Concepcion, and Liza Soberano.

Liza Soberano

Liza had this post: “My heart aches for all the animals whose lives & homes have been taken away. For all the children who won’t get to take a breath of fresh air anymore. What can we do to save the earth?”

Gerald, on the other hand, retweeted a post which said, “When Notre Dame was burning, the world’s media covered every moment it and billionaires rushed to restore it. Right now that Amazon is burning , the lungs of our planet. It has been burning for 3 weeks now. No media coverage. No billionaires.#PrayforAmazonia.”

Meanwhile, KC posted this on her Twitter account: “The Amazon forest is on fire and it took 3 weeks for the world to realize the damage and threat to our planet- to treat it like a major EMERGENCY. Our planet cannot afford this. The Amazon has helped save us from more damage and now we’re watching it burn. This is a CRISIS!”

As these Kapamilya stars showed their sympathy for what happened to Amazon, several netizens commended them for showing concern to the environment. However, there are also several netizens who criticized them. For some, what Gerald, Liza, and KC did was just a form of “pretention”. Some accused them of just doing the bandwagon.

Based on the article from Bandera, here are some of the negative comments that netizens threw against the Kapamilya stars:

“Bagay si Gerald jan para masunog na sya. Hahaha.”

“Hala pumunta kayo dun at magdala ng timba! Mga etchosero!”

“Sabay sa uso lang mga hayuf at para mapag usapan cla. Realtalk: kapag thru social media lang nakikisimpatya, walang mga paki yan sa totoo, mga plastik lang ganun.”
