"Pinoy Big Brother: Otso" housemate Angela Tungol has shot down the accusations that she was behind the Twitter account who posted negative tweets regarding Karina Bautista and Criza Ta-a from the first batch of the teen housemates.
During a media conference with her batch-mates held on Friday at the Red Hotel in Quezon City, the 17-year-old from Bataan, who has since drawn flak for the rumors, denied by saying that all of her social media accounts were deactivated prior to entering Kuya's house.
"Before kaming pumasok, lahat ng social media accounts namin ay deactivated. So paglabas ko nga ng bahay, pagkahawak ko ng phone, ang dami talagang pictures na 'yung profile ko, 'yung username, and my name na sinasabing nagde-describe sa iba't ibang past housemates na alam kong hindi sa akin 'yun," she said.
"Wala akong problema sa kanilang lahat. Marami talagang housemates na nadamay," she continued, adding that she couldn't have done it as she was genuine in her intention to join PBB, and so were the former housemates. "'Yung bago kong gawang Twitter ngayon, 'yun lang 'yung Twitter account ko."
Angela, who shared that her official Twitter account is @angelatungol__, said that she's very much aware of her posers online.
"Kahit ngayon na may official account na ako, mayroon pa rin talagang mga posers na patuloy na gumagawa ng kung anu anong tweets. So, binibigyan ko lang kayo ng notice na kilalanin or tignan niyo muna talaga 'yung account, kung official o kung sa housemate ba talaga 'yun bago tayo mag-judge ng tao," she added.
Speaking of being judged, Angela also shared her thoughts on her name being brought up during the previous guesting of her fellow housemates on the show's newest online segment 'Bring 8 On'.
"Wala po akong problema do'n, dahil alam ko sa sarili ko na mas kilala namin 'yung isa't isa na kami 'yung nagkasama sama, so hindi ko sila ija-judge sa kanilang opinyon. Kasi lahat naman kami, bawat isa sa amin, may kanya kanyang opinyon, and kapag dumating kami sa chance na 'yun, dapat naman talaga kaming sumagot nang [tapat]," she said.
"Kung ako man ang nasagot nila, tinatanggap ko ito at wala akong problema. Nakikita niyo naman ngayon. Kung tanungin niyo man kami, hindi namin 'yun pinag-uusapan kapag nagkakasama sama na kami, kasi mas mahalaga sa amin 'yung napagsamahan namin sa loob ng bahay kaysa sa nakikita or nababasa namin na kung anu-ano," she added.
