Young singer Frankie Pangilinan has hit back at a basher who told her to "stop seeking a lot of attention" and "be like your Ate KC."
The bashing started when Frankie quoted a tweet of a fan who asked her to release a new single.
"If it wasn't for [the coronavirus] I would've had many new singles out by now," answered Frankie. "but I also wouldn't have written an album so we'll see."

Another Twitter user then told her to "save yourself from wasting time" as "no one will buy your album."
"Be like your Ate KC!" the user added, referring to Frankie's elder sister KC Concepcion. "You are one miserable child seeking a lot of attention, kaya nagwawala sa Twitter? Tulad ng tatay mo? Trying to be relevant kahit wala ng nakikinig sa kanya lol!"
No one will buy your album so save yourself from wasting time. Be like your Ate KC! You are one miserable child seeking a lot of attention, kaya nagwawala sa Twitter? Tulad ng tatay mo? Trying to be relevant kahit wla ng nakikinig sa kanya lol!— Francis J (@ArmonkBurgers) September 7, 2020
Instead of getting affected by the harsh comment, Frankie just shrugged it off.
"And yet here I am, living rent free in your brain sir," she replied.
"Can someone tell the boomers nobody buys albums anymore," she wrote. "'Miserable child seeking attention' isn't that just all of gen-z?"

This isn't the first time that Frankie has been maliciously compared to KC, her half-sister with her mother, Megastar Sharon Cuneta.
During a live stream last July, Sharon admitted that it hurts her seeing comments pitting her two daughters against each other.
“Ganoon kasama ang tao," she said, before telling Frankie, "I'm so sorry, honey. You don't deserve that."
"And in the end, that's not what matters. Physical beauty fades. She's really beautiful, but they shouldn't do that to sisters, they shouldn't do that to children, they shouldn't do that to women. I am your mother. I am KC's mom, I'm your mom, I'm Yellie's mom. How dare they. I love you all equally."
"Please don't do that to my children," Sharon went on. "Ako na lang pintasan niyo. How dare you. Pag-aawayin niyo 'yung magkapatid. Ako po ang nagsilang sa mga 'yan. Hindi po ganoon ang pagpapalaki ko sa mga anak ko."
Frankie is Sharon's daughter with her husband, Senator Francis "Kiko" Pangilinan, while KC is her only child with her former husband, actor Gabby Concepcion.
