In a series of deleted tweets, a netizen—via their now-suspended account @hesinafloralsuit—claimed that the actress was irritated that people were approaching her for photos.
"Super nakakadisappoint si Bela Padilla kagabi huhu she was such a c*nt," the deleted tweet from the suspended account read.
The Twitter user also claimed to have said hello to Padilla and tell her they were happy to see her and were able to "politely" take a photo with her.
"Bago pa kami lumapit sa kanya, nakatayo lang kami ng friend ko sa gilid niya, pinapanood kung paano siya mang-irap at mairita sa mga nag-approach sa kanya," the tweet read.
Padilla caught wind of the tweets and responded directly to the account, saying it was "such a lie."
"I took photos with soooo many people. You must've treated me a certain way," Padilla said, stressing that she's also a fan who paid for her ticket "with no obligation" to take photos with people who treat her "rudely."
Such a lie. I took photos with soooo many people. 😂 you must’ve treated me a certain way. Also, don’t call people c*nts with no context. May I remind you, I’m a fan who paid for my ticket with NO obligation to take photos with people who treat me rudely.— Bela “mapanakit” Padilla (@padillabela) March 15, 2023
Padilla also pointed out that if the fan supposedly asked her to take a photo while she was talking to her friends, she would've told the fan, "Sorry, we're talking, let's take it later."
"The people around me can attest to that anything you add on will be mostly fabricated. I went to a concert, PERIOD," she said.
In another tweet, Padilla further clarified she also took photos with guards, fans, and vendors since 3:00 p.m. that day. "If you caught me at 6 onwards, I was tired. I’m a fan wanting to dance too and I did," she said.
The local star also dismissed claims of rolling her eyes in a now-deleted tweet, saying it's not her personality to do so.
According to Padilla, the user has apologized to her personally, so she decided to delete some of her posts.
"TPWK and again, be mindful of your words," Padilla tweeted with a sunflower emoji. TPWK, or treat people with kindness, is a reference to one of Styles' songs.
The actress put an end to the issue by saying she's going to stop being sad about the incident, as she went to the concert to have fun, after all.
"I screamed my heart out for Harry and went home happy. If you got to share a real moment with me, I hope you enjoyed it too (I did!)" she said. "If you treated me like a fish in an aquarium, have a good life."
Ok, I’m gonna stop being sad about this. I went there to have fun, and I did, I screamed my heart out for Harry and went home happy. If you got to share a real moment with me, I hope you enjoyed it too (I did!) If you treated me like a fish in an aquarium, have a good life 😂💯— Bela “mapanakit” Padilla (@padillabela) March 16, 2023
Padilla, along with other Pinoy concertgoers, had the time of their lives during Styles' Philippine leg of his Love on Tour concert at the Philippine Arena this week. He performed his songs As It Was and Satellite as well as a hit One Direction track What Makes You Beautiful.
