Entertainment publicist and vlogger Ogie Diaz shrugged off criticisms from fans of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla who were outraged on social media following an unverified rumor that the celebrity couple had broken up.
Although Ogie emphasized that the news was unconfirmed, fans of kathNiel criticized the viral news. The vlogger-publicist simply laughed off the bashers' comments.
On X (formerly known as Twitter), Ogie wrote: "May naibalita lang kami na sinabi naman namin na di pa confirmed at sana di totoo, fake news peddler na raw kami. So pag tama ba kami, sasabitan nyo kami ng medalya?
"Naaaliw na lang ako sa inyo, hehehe. Sana, masarap ulam nyo choday.
"Salamat sa mga nagpapa-trending. Ang importante, napasaya ko kayo," the veteran showbiz vlogger said.
KathNiel fans claimed Ogie was a peddler of fake news for his comment about the popular loveteam.
