Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson defend their fans from criticisms.
Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson were overwhelmed by the warm reception of Kapamilya fans who watched the Star Magic Concert at the Araneta Coliseum last November 13. “Ang daming tao tsaka nagchee-cheer pa sila so nawawala yung kaba namin kaya napakasaya,” Kim said.
Kim’s friend and former My Girl co-star Alex Gonzaga recently got into trouble with Kim’s fans when the latter made a comment about Gerald's rumored team-up with Sarah Geronimo for a project. Kimerald fans—as how Kim and Gerald fans call themselves—criticized Alex to the point the young actress went into a fit of depression.
Kim and Gerald refused to talk about the incident with the press since they said they really don’t have a clear idea of what happened. Gerald told members of the media, “Mas may alam po kayo sa nangyayari kaysa sa amin. Hindi ko talaga alam kung anong nangyayari pero 'yun lang ang masasabi ko, malalim talaga ang suporta sa amin at mahal na mahal nila kami (fans) talaga.”
There have been growing criticisms that Kimerald fans have gone overboard with a lot of their demands and actions. Kim and Gerald were quick to rise to their fans’ defense. “Hindi lahat ng fans ganun, eh. Hindi lahat ipaglalaban ka so kami ni Gerald sobrang masaya kami sa lahat ng mga Kimerlad dahil pinaglalaban nila kami kahit anong mangyari. Simula't-simula hanggang ngayon nandiyan pa rin sila, kung hindi dahil sa kanila at mga suporta nila wala kami ni Gerald, kaya super thankful kami,” said Kim.
To give back to their fans, Kim and Gerald see to it that they have bonding moments together. “'Pag may dumarating galing sa States, nagdi-dinner out kami bilang pasasalamat namin sa kanila at nagpapa-autograph sila ng mga magazines pinipirmahan namin kasi isang way na rin yun para mag-thank you sa kanila.”
