#BoycottLizaSoberano trended on Twitter – here’s why
Fans and supporters of the actress come to her defense after she spoke at a Gabriela Youth webinar

A day after actress Liza Soberano spoke at a Gabriela Youth webinar, calling for influencers to speak up on issues, internet trolls went to work trying to make the hashtag #BoycottLizaSoberano trend on Wednesday, October 14.

Soberano was a guest during the Mga Tinig ni Nene: Reclaiming Our Voices on the International Day of the Girl Child, where she talked about her experience in using her voice to call for change.

Naturally, fans and supporters – including K-Pop stans –  came to the rescue as they flooded the hashtag with memes and messages of support.

Some online users find it ridiculous and funny the hashtag trended from the start.

In September, Soberano filed a complaint against an online user for a rape joke against her. She said she filed the complaint because she wants people to understand the consequences of their actions. – Rappler.com
