Since Kathryn Bernardo announced that she’s endorsing Liberal Party’s standard-bearer Mar Roxas, some fans have been vocal about their disapproval of the Teen Queen's vote for president.

The Kapamilya actress admitted, however, that she had been preparing herself about this expected surge of negative reaction prior to campaigning for the former Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) secretary.

Kathryn said, “In-open na kami sa idea na sobrang dami talaga, doble yung mag-aawat.

“Pero sabi na lang namin ni DJ [Daniel Padilla], right naman namin yun as a Filipino kung sino [ang] susuportahan namin.

“Nagkataon lang kasi na artista kami, important na suportahan si Kuya Mar, at yun yung pinaniniwalaan namin.”

UNFAZED BY DETRACTORS. When encountering harsh messages on her social media feed, Kathryn would recall the reason why she agreed to the endorsement in the first place.

“And kapag babalik ka sa side na yun, mari-realize din ng mga tao kung bakit yun yung pinili namin.

“And feeling ko, kailangan lang talaga respetuhin ng isa’t isa kung sino napili ng bawat isa.

“Kasi, kung ikaw naman, kunwari iba iyong suportahan mo, hindi naman kita pipilitin.

“Parang ako lang, nakuha ng suporta ni Kuya Mar, kami ni DJ, at hindi lang ‘yan sa kung anong rason.

“Pinili namin siya dahil napag-aralan namin and sa kanila kami naniniwala.

“So, nasa kanya yung suporta namin.

“May mga tao lang talaga na hindi nila masyado nagugustuhan yun.

“Pero for me lang, dapat respect the decision ng bawat isa.”

ON FIRST CAMPAIGN EXPERIENCE Being actively involved in the election campaign of Liberal Party’s presidential bet made Kathryn realize the differences between the responsibilities of celebrities and politicians.

She said, “Mas mahirap pala yun ginagawa ng politicians sa artista.

“Grabe, grabe ang obligation nila."

It always gave her and Daniel a lot to think about the needs of the Filipinos.

Kathryn further related, “Tapos, mas marami kaming nakikilala sa mga bawat city na pinupuntahan namin.

“Parang nagiging eye-opener siya sa mga kailangan pa talaga i-improve sa ’tin, gawin sa ’tin.

“Tapos first time kasi namin ni DJ kaya kakaibang experience din po siya.”
