Angelica "Angel" Yap remains unfazed despite being plagued with negative feedback on social media.
Some of the reality star's bashers persistently barrage her with malicious comments on her Instagram account, which currently has more than 200,000 followers.
Asked how she feels about people who misjudge her, Angel replied, "Palagi naman, e.
"Tingin ko kasi nag-start talaga 'yan, kasi siyempre, di ba, It's Showtime versus Eat Bulaga!
"Yaya Dub [a.k.a Maine Mendoza] versus Pastillas Girl.
"Hindi na mawawala yung Yaya Dub versus Pastillas Girl sa akin.
"So, yung bashers, sa tingin ko, lahat naman ng tao may karapatan magsalita.
"Kung hindi nila ako feel, nasa kanila din naman yun.
"Para sa akin, don't hate na lang. Support what you love."
Angel is referring to the rivalry between the noontime shows of GMA Network and ABS-CBN, Eat Bulaga! and It's Showtime, respectively.
It can be recalled that It's Showtime featured Pastillas Girl's quest for love soon after Eat Bulaga! came up with the hit "Kalyeserye" segment mid-last year that paved the way for the phenomenal AlDub loveteam of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza.
CONTRACT SIGNING WITH VIVA. Now that It's Showtime's reality dating segment has ended, Angel has decided to pursue a showbiz career.
The 21-year-old aspiring actress officially signed a five-year contract with Viva Artists Agency earlier today, January 7.
Asked about what's in store for her this 2016, Angel replied, 'For now, gusto ni Boss Vic [Vic Del Rosario, head of Viva Entertainment] na kailangan mag-workshop muna ako.
"Gusto niya, bago nila ako isalang, prepared na po ako.
"Kasi sa It's Showtime, reality search siya for finding Mr. Pastillas. Walang acting na naganap.
"This time, kailangan maipakita ko kung anong meron ako as Angelica.
"Yung mga talent ko naman??dancing, singing, if ever ma-enhance pa yun, and acting siyempre."
Angel further said that her It's Showtime family approves of her decision to sign up with Viva's talent arm.
She said, "Nakapag-usap naman na kami ng It's Showtime family about this.
"Actually, nung nakapag-usap kami, nakapag-sign na ako [ng contract].
"Ayun, happy naman sila sa decision ko."
