During that time, it can be heard that the band was still strumming their guitar. After Francine Diaz performed a Taylor Swift song, she bid goodbye to her fans.

Then, Orange and Lemons frontman Clem Castro asked for respect after he greeted the crowd. “Gusto ko lang manghingi ng paumanhin pero kailangan kong sabihin to para sa mga artists. Kasi dapat kaninang 11 pa kami dito e. So sana naman walang sumisingit. Yun lang. Respeto lang ba. So ayon lang gusto ko lang sabihin ‘yon. Ayokong masira ‘yung pag-eenjoy natin ngayong gabi,” he said.

Because of the incident, netizens shared different reactions on social media. Some criticized the band while some accused Francine of being “bastos.” For some netizens, the organizer of the event should be blamed.
