Director Cathy Garcia-Molina admitted that she did not expect that her tweets will spread like wildfire after she answered a fan about her thoughts on possibly working with James Reid and Nadine Lustre for a movie.
In her previous tweets, Direk Cathy cited what she supposedly heard about JaDine from their previous directors Dan Villegas and Tonet Jadaone when asked by a netizen if she is willing to work with the tandem. The director received criticisms after posting the tweets.
In an interview with the press, Direk Cathy explained, “Kasi sobra kasi akong tanga sa social media. Kung hindi niyo napansin ‘yung Twitter account ko bagong-bago ‘yun kasi nga hindi ako marunong, ang alam ko lang ‘pag like ako ng like. Ang followers ko nga ang kokonti eh kasi kakabukas ko lang nga. Ang akala ko pag ni-replyan mo ang isang tao siya lang ang makakakita. Nong marami nang sumasagot don ko lang na-realize na my god ang dami pala,” she said.
She further explained, “Tapos ang dami ng sumusundot na kung anu-anong reactions so kaya pala nagalit kasi ganito. Halika talk tayo privately, tsaka ko lang siya inaya [yung netizen], kasi hindi ko kasi alam na hindi private. At sabi ko nga siyempre ang Twitter wala namang tono, just like messages, di ba?” she said.
The director extended her apology to those who were affected by her tweets. “Ako talaga I would like to apologize, no? I have no intention whatsoever na i-demean or siraan, bakit ko naman gagawin ‘yun?” she said.
