An excited Ella then shared how surreal the moment was when they got to meet the members of BLACKPINK. Several “Blinks” congratulated them and celebrities Anne Curtis, Donnalyn Bartolome, Maymay Entrata and Julian Trono also praised her performance.
However, there were also some netizens who accused the actress of credit grabbing.
“Never ko tinake lahat ng credits FYI. Mga tao talaga balakaujan! Basta nakasayaw ako sa harap ng BLACKPINK,” Ella wrote.
SB New Gen then clarified that Ella was the only one who was tapped to join the competition and they willingly joined her since they are also big fans of Jennie, Jisoo, Rosé, and Lisa.
“FYI: Ella was the only one invited since she is a PH endorser of SAMSUNG but we joined cause we want to meet BP too!"
“Can we just be happy for one another guys!!! Dreams are being fulfilled and recognized no reason mag crab mentality!! Toxic haters kinagaling niyo ang pagbabash?” they wrote on Twitter.
