Robert James Reid, one of the Philippines hottest male celebrity, just got a meme treatment because of an anonymous girl from Davao City claimed to be his girlfriend. The secretly-self-proclaimed girlfriend of the OTWOL (On the Wings of Love) leading man share their “love story” on a post on a community page on Facebook, AdDU Confession. It is a page where the students of Ateneo de Davao University can share their secrets and stories to everyone while their privacy is protected.
According to the mystery sender, she and the unnamed “national heartthrob” meet on a night bar in Davao City. He wrote his phone number on the girl’s palm. They began texting each other until the girl was invited to go to the celebrity’s house in Manila. When the girl arrived in Manila, she was accommodated by the actor. She even proudly claimed that they made love. Afterwards, they lost contact with each other when the girl went back to Davao City. She got into a relationship with a different guy but her feelings remained the same for the actor. One day, her “idol” went to their house. That was the time when they made their “love” official.
She did not mention any names of the celebrity. The only clues she left the readers are: (1) he is on a popular TV show now, (2) they are still together, and (3) the relationship with his loveteam partner is purely business.
The post currently gathers about 18,000+ likes, 11,000 + shares, and 10,000+ comments. Most of the comments are expressions of ridicule from bitter fans of OTWOL and JaDine. There are some netizens who also defended the anonymous sender by supporting the veracity of the story. Meanwhile, other citizens hilariously continued to guess who is the mystery idol.
The top comment goes:
“Clue: Nognog, pandak, laki sa hirap.” (In English, burnt, short, and lived in poverty).
Whatever the truth is, it cannot be denied that social media can influence the intensity of how much people can react if their idols are on the limelight.
