This is where I started on this road. My thoughts on AlDub. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31
They didn't have to put AlDub on ice altogether. I watched Alden's videos when he's promoting his other projects. He repeatedly said that AlDub wasn't over. He even said he's hoping for more mature roles & stories for him and Maine #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 It's ironic that the strategy that APT and GMA used (to present Alden as single) vs AlDub prevents him from ever declaring a GF, because the anti-AlDub plotters just want Alden for their movies or TS and isn't out for his happiness. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 Here are my thoughts on how Alden and Maine can keep on doing AlDub projects while also working with other actors in non-AlDub projects. The grievance of AlDub fans is this conspiracy to destroy AlDub. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 I can't understand why GMA7 couldn't engage with Maine the way ABS engaged with Sara Geronimo, a Viva talent. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31
To Alden and Maine, don't be used for partisan politics. AlDub fans are smart, people with convictions. We don't need you to help us make up our minds about politics. We love you, we want to see you in great TS & movies, instead. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 If there's a will, there's a way. Find a way, GMA. Alden signed a contract w/ you for many years. If you want to get ADN support for Alden's solo projects, then you have to reactivate AlDub projects & give Maine solo projects too. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 As I've been saying in my earlier posts, find a middle ground with AlDub fans: Alternate Alden and Maine's AlDub projects with non-AlDub solo projects. Everybody happy! #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 Don't get VS' MZET involved in AlDub projects because of his conflict of interest over his ABS shares. GMA and APT can work with Viva and Regal. If there's a will, there's a way #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31
Even Alden and Maine can't help themselves when they're together. Magnet, electricity, they can't defy the laws of physics with each other. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 GMA, don't make Alden sound like a broken record that nobody listens to. If people were listening, there wouldn't have been a #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 by now. Yes, GMA, send an olive branch to AlDub fans by guesting Maine & Alden in your drama anthologies. APT EB should cooperate coz they're ground 0 for the #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 As for Daddy's Gurl, a finale? GMA, APT, respect the fans. They're among the most important showbiz stakeholders. You have to know how to communicate with them especially when you can't give them yet what they want for valid reasons, so you can keep the goodwill. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 Sectors of people have been waging boycotts for causes for ages. Fans have the right to wage this #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 to get the entertainment they want worthy of their support and resources. Also, don't exploit A & M for politics & self-interest. Did we ever imagine that one day, AlDub fans would be launching the #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 ? This is an evolving journey. We saw something real in Alden and Maine's eyes and we just want to give them a chance to complete their story on their own terms. AlDub fans are disappointed with the way APT handled the movie contracts of Alden and Maine. They say the bartering and sell-outs started around 2018 and they made Alden and Maine absorb the nuke fallout from fans. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31
I just realized that while APT and GMA were laughing all the way to the bank, Maine was left to explain herself in OL1 & 2 while slanderous tweets and posts against Alden & his family were all over the place! APT and GMA left them in the line of fire #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31
Here, they're too busy with financial statements and bottom lines. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 I only learned about VS' deep ties to ABS during the franchise hearings when the list of top shareholders circulated in social media. Even then, I didn't think he would help scuttle AlDub because EB's success is tied to AlDub.
#TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 Remember that after the 2020 ECQ, AlDub's Tiktok moments were big viewer draws for EB on TV and online. Di mabilang ads nila! It revived the hopes of AlDub fans that a comeback was in the offing. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 Si why did EB shore up the hopes of the AlDub fans when they knew all along, babasagin nila sila by Feb. 2021 through DG? My suspicion is they were baiting competitors of GMA or GMA itself. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31
Super-hunch lang ito ha? They allowed A & M to flirt on TV sending a signal to rival networks there'll be an AlDub comeback soon. ABS, TV5 & GMA don't want that. So ABS responds by allowing Bea to do a movie with Alden; TV5 makes a good TV offer to Maine #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31
... And GMA bites the bait by offering a co-production deal to APT in the Bea-Alden movie. DTBY on Cignal is just the balm on AlDub wound. And we all know what's in it for VS. But they didn't see the #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 coming. The rest is history happening now. If only VS kept in mind the adage of "Give to Caesar what is due to Caesar and give to God what is due to God," he would have made full use of AlDub in his MMFF movies and he'll be earning millions in reruns and streams by now. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31
Understand and respect the fans. More importantly, communicate with them. There's no showbusiness without the fans. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 In showbusiness, you have to be skillful, sensitive and creative when modifying the narrative of a show or movie and explain to the fans why the story can't go on as it is. Fans are more understanding than they're given credit for. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 I believe Maine & Alden had a relationship; they probably have an on & off happy but difficult relationship due to career demands. But why would Maine write OL1 & 2 totally denying a relationship ever existed if not asked to do so? #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31
This provoked a lot of fans to defend ourselves from slurs that we're just delulus. Some of us fought back with counter-narratives, basing them on what we saw and hear of AlDub live, spontaneously, in studio or on TV. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31
I can't say that A & M are married because it's a legal matter requiring a marriage certificate which I've not seen. But I believe they at least had a relationship and M shouldn't have been made to write OL1 & 2 denying any affair that only hardened fans. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31
But if it was a business decision by parties with vested interests, to pressure M to write OL 1 & 2 the way they were published, then that's cruel and cynical towards M because those involved her personal life. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31
A simple statement "AlDub is on a break to let us sort our lives and grow our careers" would have sufficed if A & M's managements cared personally for them and understood how the OLs would impact the fans. Being insensitive and nonchalant are no-no #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 The enemies of #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 will resort to anything to discredit a movement that they left for dead in 2019. Don't mind them. As TBADNs say, we hold our cellphones, remotes, purses and ATMs and they have to spend millions to stop the ad bleed. Agree, ma'am. GMA & APT forgot the importance of PR & stakeholder relations. Statements like "Survive the confusion" are the heights of insensitivity and hubris. Now reap what you sow, guys. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 Reposting it here: AlDub is a great case study for aspiring CEOs, brand managers, communicators & strategists: The Rise & Struggles of the Phenomenal AlDub Brand. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 GMA, please don't be tunnel-visioned. Good business sense is good market sense. And in show business, AlDub goodwill is great for business. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31
This is funny. APT failed to analyze that they're suffering from lack of credibility and that their narrative, principally because of their arrogance and condenscending air towards the fans, has been rejected. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 VS still doesn't realize that he has lost and why. Kung mahal talaga niya AlDub, why did he shut them out of his MMFF movies? He did it on the behest of ABS where he is a major shareholder. AA guesting in DG is the last straw. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT31 No other LT can beat AlDub/Maichard in showing spontaneous affection and joy in their candids. We fell hard for that. We still do. What did Dumbledore tell Harry? Of course it exists, it's in your mind & senses. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT33 #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT33 You handle a crisis by not repeating the same mistakes. So, the first step is to pinpoint where you went wrong and work from there. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT33 Mixed messages? But the only message we got loud and clear is a lifetime commitment to love, friendship and loyalty between Alden and Maine. I hope 1day, a journalist uncovers what really happened to AlDub to make sense of it all. This #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT33 is a way to make sense of it and reclaim our sense of joy and appreciation for Alden&Maine. Coz to have no more AlDub doesn't make sense
Give us 10 reasons why there shouldn't be anymore Maiden/Maichard/AlDub projects, I bet everyone of them won't make sense. Or, they will expose the deceit, envy and selfishness of a few. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT33 We have so many ideas for reviving AlDub but there are boulders in our way 👇 VS is just the tip of the iceberg. If an AlDub revival can't happen in EB coz of AA-Maricel-Jalosjos link, then where?
#TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT33 Love teams are for great entertainment. Managed well, they help tell stories through cinema. They're shouldn't be used or destroyed for politics! Pols should think of their service agenda, not of celebs who can promote them. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT33 Fans blame APT-Tuvieras, VS for what happened to AlDub but they're just tips of the iceberg. The naming of the new TAPE CEO, a Jalosjos explains the turn of events - AA guesting in DG. Be careful mixing politics with business. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT33 Will EB fall because of bad business and market sense & unfortunate mixing of business & patronage politics? 42 years of being the top noontime show derailed by essentially parochial interests? #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT33 In 2015, EB was again struggling in TV ratings, then AlDub came. Despite the awry pasts of EB stars, they bounced back, as if Fate wanted them to clean up so they can help more people. But it seems their dark sides always surface. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT33 Here's the AP story about the Dad. In the end we have to respect M's decisions but we hope she doesn't rush into anything. If it wasn't AA, would it have been easier for us to let go? #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT33 When we finally come to the truth, the whole truth, & nothing but..., I wonder what we're going to do about it? #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT33 Going strong and counting #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT33 I know that showbiz competition has always been stiff but the level of duplicity, machination & manipulation to break up the AlDub/Maichard team is unprecedented. You have to go through layers & layers of deals & counter-deals. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT33
Anong K magalit ng mewls? Sila lang ba ang TV viewers? Kung sila ang nakakarami, di sana sila na ang nasunod đŸ€Ł Nung pilit silang sinunod dahil sa mga pansariling interes, sumabog ang boycott mula sa mga tunay na nakakarami. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT33 If left to their own devices and left well enough alone, Maine and Alden will find, meet and stay with each other again and again. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT33 They'll be back ... If we can conceive it, it can and will happen... #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT33 Always have each other's back ... When it comes to Maine, Alden can carry her for minutes without flinching... He's strong for her. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT33 Haaay, ang cute talaga nila together... But for now, it's #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT33 for EB... 😄 That AlDub fans consistently generate over 110,000 tweets everyday since the boycott's start shows the solid AlDub market stays and media ignoring it shows they're in a conspiracy to demolish it, which is stupid. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT34 Godot isn't coming. Let's take matters in our hands. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT34 We hope that wherever you go Alden & Maine, you will not lose yourselves to the demands of your phenomenal success. Your career success ultimately should lead you to a place of happiness and not a lifelong compromise. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT34 Alden must be ruing the turn of events. He has always wanted to work with Bea A. I'm sure Maine's happy for him. But this DG-AA caper by APT, meant to break the fans' AlDub fixation to pave the way for A&M solo projects backfired! #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT34 I think GMA & APT went too far in making AlDub fans take what they shove. Sinagad. The pointless DG-AA guesting blew up in their faces. The sad truth is they should've left well enough alone. Fans had been patient since 2019. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT34 Add to that was the cynical attempt to break the AlDub LT & fandom so APT-TAPE can get Maine to campaign for AA's 2022 candidacy, according to reports fans got. Thank God we learned about it on time. Forewarned is forearmed. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT34 What will this week bring? EB, APT & GMA are taking pains not to rile AlDub fans or they just apply deadma. Attrition? Sila ang may kailangan sa audience. Tayo, we have other options, Netflix, YouTube, HBO Go... #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT35 Don't disrespect the fans. Give the customers the best service you can achieve. Don't be patronizing if you don't want to lose patrons! #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT35 Sometimes, I think the middle management of GMA are full of amateurs. ABS has lost its franchise but it can still throw jabs at GMA! GMA is good at cutting costs, for sure. Is that why their execs are always outsmarted? #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT35
Don't overdo hurting your enemy. He might just fight back in a late round rally ala Ali. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT35 Beware of Trojan horses. The enemy is always closer than we think. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT35 Fool's gold. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT35 When a leader loses sight of the company vision and what its brand stands for, he is lost... #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT35 Never underestimate your audience. Never underestimate your opponent. He'll, don't take anybody for granted. You should always work as if the other party is better than you... #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT35 ABS scored vs GMA, EB, APT with the DG-AA guesting debacle but... it still doesn't have a franchise and AA is as unbankable as ever. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT35 I really wonder what EB will do next to get out of the hole it dug for itself? #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT35
If it ain't broke don't fix it. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT35
What makes it right for a leader at the 11th hour is a strong sense of values. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT35 Good morning TBADNs! Brand new day of living and learning. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT36 A great point made by @autumnleaves531 on the talent management of Maine. Is it right to tie the management of a star's career to that of another star (VS) who's already old and won't be soon, thereby boxing & limiting her career? #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT36 Returning to this point coz it bothers me: So if you're a rising star in EB, you'll have to be under the control of VS, who's linked to ABS over his shares & take that or take a hike. Unfair to Maine & Alden, unfair to GMA too. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT36
I'm also quite critical of the GMA Network for wasting the opportunities opened up by AlDub. They didn't fight hard enough for AlDub when their satellites beamed the historic EB Kalyeserye episodes, Tamang Panahon, DTBY and they co-produced IYAM. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT36
Sa inyo antenna, satellites, GMA 7, kalahati ng AlDub, si Alden, top talent nyo! You own and have as much responsibility for the AlDub brand as TAPE/APT/Triple A. Why do you look as if you're outmanoeuvred in your own backyard always? #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT36
GMA7, didn't you see the damage the DG-AA ep would cause to your Bea-Alden movie? Amateurs! Don't you remember that when ABS promoted HLG, they tapped some ADN fan clubs to promote HLG via blockscreening? Tapos kayo, you just alienate ADN. Hina nyo! #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT36
Eto naman si VS, parang walang business maturity. When you have interlocking interests across companies, then be fair. GMA7 has been the home of EB for 3 decades. Nalula ka lang sa AlDub, gusto mo nang sarilihin, tapos kumikilos ka pala sa kumpas ng ABS. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT36 I hope the managements of Maine & Alden see the error of their ways and stop alienating the AlDub fandom. I'm tweeting for better management of A&M's careers & the revival of AlDub projects. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT36 Here are my suggestions on how Alden&Maine's managements can mend fences w/ AlDub fans. Alternate AlDub w/ non-AlDub projects. Send olive branch w/ AlDub episodes in drama anthologies. Stay away from private stuff. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT36 This is the most practical way to mend fences with ADN given MECQ - short-term engagements via AlDub appearances in drama anthologies or sitcoms! Otherwise, A&M's solo projects will earn bad vibes during promotion. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT36 Appearances in top GMA shows will put you back on the road to good vibes w/ ADN. Guest A&M together in your drama anthologies like MPK, Tadhana, WishKL, then KMJS, AmazingEarth & PepitoManaloto & BubbleGang. This won't end the #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT36 but
... They will serve as confidence-building measures. They won't automatically end the #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT36 because we want either a teleserye or a movie per year. Given the high demand of the market for streaming content, GMA, APT, work on this or fade! GMA, APT, what's the point of having 30 years of business ties if you can't fix this mess? Stick to business. Don't use Alden & Maine for politics. Don't use their private lives. Give them great projects, if you want to end #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT36 OK, it may be too hard to mount a VR concert by the AlDub anniversary in July but, if there's a will, there's a way. You want to do great business again? Tap the AlDub goldmine, don't let VS conflict of interests with ABS stop you. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT36 Don't tease AlDub projects, just DO IT and show the trailer a week before the showing, GMA, APT. Make the guest appearances weekly. You will both win in the end by regaining the AlDub market. But to see is to believe, so do it! #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT36 AlDub appearances in GMA anthologies, sitcoms & shows may not automatically end the #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT36 on EB and DG, BUT I'm sure they will rate highly and put EB & DG on the road to recovering the AlDub market & spur respect for A&M solo projects. To GMA, EB, DG, APT reeling from the loss of ads, you don't make peace w/ your friends. You forge peace w/ your adversaries. Work on AlDub projects immediately and restore the goodwill w/ the AlDub fans. Advertisers will love that. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT36 Yes! Let's keep up with the boycott! What have we to lose after the DG-AA caper? Sila ang nawawalan ngayon, esep-esep Alden & Maine managements! #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT36 Kayang-kaya ma'm ang 20 AlDub projects spread in 3 to 5 years. Pacing & right mix. If they're doing a TS this year, then do movies the next. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT36 No matter what happens, we'll remember them with these moments ...moments that they shared with us... Good morning to all AlDub fans! #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37
I'm just a brick in this boycott wall. To date, I only have 23 followers. For the most part, I'm a follower and left alone w/ my AlDub views. But some anti-AlDub people only started commenting when my co-fans retweeted my posts about new AlDub projects! #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37
This reinforces our view that ultimately, groups out there are out to destroy the AlDub tandem, not necessarily Alden Richards or Maine Mendoza individually but the AlDub pairing because it's such a threat to those who can't control it! #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37
Networks vs networks. Products vs products. Advertisers vs advertisers. Endorsement deals vs... And yes, political PR groups vs... They're all against an AlDub revival. A great high noon AlDub fans - it's indeed another day of living and learning! 😀 #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37 Whatever happens, we will discover many things and learn a lot in this journey. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37 Start with the end in mind: I'm tweeting for the revival of AlDub projects. I'm against using Alden & Maine for politics. I wish them more power & control of their careers & road to happiness. A great high noon AlDub fans. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37 In a burst of optimism, I had a series of tweets yesterday, feeling upbeat about the revival of AlDub projects. But the question is where and how? #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37 The AlDub geek in me had a list of suggestions to GMA7, EB, APT & TAPE on how to revive AlDub projects....
#TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37 But we know the EB/TAPE/APT/MZET gang w/ the help of GMA7 & ABS is too far gone in its quest to eliminate AlDub from the entertainment scene to use Maine & prop up AA's 2022 poll bid, promote the Bea-Den movie & A's TS w/ JCS. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37 GMA7 has invested a lot in re-inventing Alden Richards as a leading man who can be partnered with any actress. It wants a repeat of HLG, this time with Viva. But this DG-AA caper meant to crush AlDub fixation boomeranged. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37 Apparently, there's been a surfeit too of hubris, miscalculation, arrogance, vindictiveness & plain stupidity in the DG-AA guesting fiasco. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37 But wait, the fact that the EB/ TAPE/ APT/ MZET people with GMA7 are not too smart but arrogant & insensitive will work to the advantage of #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37 campaign in the long run. If VS dropped the ball on this DG-AA flop, then what about the 70-year-old institution that's GMA7? I suspect GMA7 executives are either not too sharp too or they're just consumed with their dislike for AlDub. Not very smart. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37 How can a wolf in sheep's clothing be dumb? Well, that's turning out to be a blessing to this #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37 Ano kaya kung ito ang token competition ng Pop Pinoy ni Maine sa TV5? GMA7 wants Maine far from Alden during his TS w/ JCS & movie w/ Bea. GMA, APT & MZET are all in this together anyway, so MZET will be Maine's token rival. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37
Sino man manalo, MZET man or Maine's Pop Pinoy of APT, it's all in the family naman. GMA won't risk having its own star lose to Maine. So it has to be an MZET show. Of course, Maine's gonna win ratings. But how will the #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37 affect this? So here we are, the enemies of AlDub can be cunning, malicious and dumb at the same time. The future of AlDub depends on how long EB's contract is with GMA7 & how long are the contracts of Maine w/ TripleA/APT and Alden w/ GMA7. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37 The future of AlDub will also depend on how far this #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37 can go and affect the ratings of MZET & APT shows. In the meantime, the anti-AlDub band of plotters appear to be sticking with eac other through thick or thin. That's the boulder in the way of an AlDub revival.
And who will have the balls, independence and resources to finance an AlDub revival? #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37 GMA7 is big on bottomline, profits, ROI, unlike ABS who'll spend a lot to conjure a starlet to be a success even b4 she's a success. GMA won't have problems making money w/the AlDub couple but APT will want its share #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37 You know what, I hope Alden and Maine can do a series of movies with the producers of the Antonio Luna movie. They're quite good. They also produced some of Jenelyn Mercado's MMFF movies where she won awards. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37
I have one more suggestion, whether Alden and Maine are "together" or not, they should seriously consider setting up their talent management agency for their projects. That way, they can stir the ship of AlDub success in the future. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37
If they're together but not yet married, these corporate arrangements will serve as their prenuptial agreement on what will be conjugal assets. If they're already married as some fans speculate, then these protect their marital interests. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37
If Maine & Alden are friends, the more they can become business partners of their talent management agency. Alden Richards has said he and Maine are stronger together. Why not corporatize that to protect yourselves from corporate greed & manipulation? #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37
Maine, Alden, you can be the CEOs of your future, your careers, your dreams, your lives. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37
The phenomenal highlights of your stellar careers, EB Kalyeserye, Tamang Panahon, ton of endorsements, hit movies & TV series, mean something more: You've earned the right to be captains of your ship. It's your turn. Say yes to the future. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37
By setting up their own talent management agency, Maine and Alden will be dealing with production firms and networks on equal terms. They can protect themselves from political and commercial manipulation and weed out those who want to undermine them. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37
Good morning TBADNs & like-minded AlDub fans. I'll start with a lesson that the 70-year-old GMA7 & 40-year-old APT/TAPE/MZET/EB gang may have missed: Showbusiness is providing great entertainment and profiting, together. If you miss 1, you're gonna lose. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT38 Showbusiness shouldn't be used for profit alone & rarely 4 politics, or it's going to be exploitative. It should provide quality entertainment that will profit so that producers will have more money to provide great entertainment. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT38 Salamat social media, may boses na ang mga karaniwang tao. GMA7, APT, NWs may ignore us, but hell, they're going to feel our will through falling TV ratings leading to ad load loss. I haven't opened my TV 4 days. Ty Netflix, HBO
#TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT38 Just reposting here my thoughts yesterday on what Alden & Maine can do to work together again, w/ great film people, profit from their AlDub success equitably & not be exploited by bad people. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT38 To be able to work again, Alden & Maine must leave their talent managements and set up their own management team composed of creative & legal advisers who will help them manage their careers by picking the right projects. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT38
W/ their own talent management agency, Alden & Maine can still sign project contracts w/ GMA or other NWs & great film outfits, w/ exclusivity clauses based on project periods. Example, they can work w/ the Antonio Luna producer #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT38 Setting up their own talent management agency will give them control of their careers, more creative options and their lives. Di sila makakahon ng GMA7, APT, EB, Tape, MZET with their interlocking conflicts of interests. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT38
To add to the tweet count, I will repost hereon TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT37 tweets about my proposal for Alden & Maine to set up their own talent management team that will manage their careers. This can be a way for us to see a high quality AlDub revival. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT38

Repost/Comments welcome 6) By setting up a talent management firm, Maine & Alden will deal w/ production firms & networks on equal terms. They can protect themselves from political and commercial manipulation and weed out those who want to undermine them #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT38 This summer has been full of surprises. As a silent AlDub fan all these years waiting for a project by Alden & Maine, this #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT39 stunned me and encouraged me to speak out because if we're together, we're not insignificant. An unexpected boycott by a devoted mass of fans can only lead to more surprises and discoveries. We've learned so much in the past 45 days. All of these discoveries worked in our favor. Some mysteries remain... #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT39 I'll always believe that the move to dissolve the AlDub tandem came not from Alden & Maine but from business groups fearful of the consequences of not being able to control them. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT39 At first, I thought OL1 was written by a confused & burned-out Maine crying for help. But upon reflection, I can say that in the 2 OLs, Maine was compelled by anti-AlDub forces in positions of influence, to write it. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT39 OL1, Maine & Alden were fronting a Magnolia & Platinum Karaoke campaign! Seeing her hardwork in Eat Bulaga, I don't see Maine as an unprofessional spoiled brat. She cares for her work & her team. No way would she write that. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT39 The AlDub demolition was a hostile move by several business groups w/ deep pockets to lure those close to A & M to split them apart. As we discover more, we will be boycotting more. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT39 Last night, I chanced upon this thread, prompting me to check out IG, and there I learned that Alden's new TS is happening sooner rather than later. So, I wrote these posts. I don't think Maine & Alden are totally helpless. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT39 If it were entirely up to them, Maine & Alden would choose to keep on working together. Pero maraming gumitna, nangialam at humadlang. They all forgot, how about the fans? So I wrote these and will repost them to add to the tweets #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT39
As they mature in their careers, Alden & Maine gain more power and independence and control of their lives. They're not entirely trapped. So, I wish they won't forget the AlDub fans that supported and idealised them. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT39
I think Maine and Alden never wanted to junk AlDub. They could work with other actors but would keep on going back to AlDub. That's why they still don't want to say anything final. They were forced to split apart by moneyed anti-AlDub vested interests. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT40 Maine and Alden were pressured to leave AlDub ... #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT40 Remember the legend of the turtle, who's the last one standing in a long race because it's built to last, is in for the long haul and knows how to pace itself. Surprise, surprise to Anti-AlDub forces. They didn't see us coming.
#TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT40 Parang biowarfare ang ginawa sa AlDub nation. Hinati-hati ang fans. Pinagaway. Pinagduda. Yung Mulats guesting masarili si Maine. Yung Anays guesting angkinin si Alden. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT40 Look, the way Alden reaches out for Maine is instinctive, almost compulsive... #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT40 What's been happening in the #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT41 so far makes me wonder how big corporations like media and TV networks, advertisers and their biggest stars see their viewers, audiences and fans.
Can media organizations like TV networks ignore the audiences when they earn much of their revenues from advertisers tracking where the eyeballs are? #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT41
If we're living 12 years or 20 years ago, definitely traditional analog media like TV and radio control the flow and feedback on information. But social media changed the equation where masses of audiences like AlDub fans can make their will felt. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT41
Hence, the over 40 million tweets for EB Kalyeserye Tamang Panahon cemented the status of Maine & Alden as the Phenomenal Stars of their generation. But it threatened traditional media control. AlDub must be demolished. But can they do that or want to? #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT41
Does GMA7 really want to be rid of AlDub, of Alden & Maine together on TV and silver screens when they know these are instant hits and magnets to millions of eyeballs? #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT41
GMA7 must be in dilemma. If they let go of Maine, she'll work for another network and draw eyeballs there. Alden is massively talented but who he's paired with is always a divisive issue with his big but factionalized fandom.
Example, the ICanSeeYouLoveonThe Balcony rerun on GMA7 and GTV rated 15 points on the AGB Nielsens People Meter TV rating. That's just equal to the reported rating of the DG-AA episode! First Yaya is over 20s. This means Alden & Maine earn 15s in solos. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT41
Do AlDub fans account for the 10 points of People Meter missing from A&M shows? If together, can Alden & Maine reach the phenomenal 25 points or more on AGB Nielsens People Meter TV rating? I believe so! #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT41
But the missing piece of the puzzle is why did GMA7 quit on AlDub? It's very much against their interest to drop this pairing.  no longer working together on screen. No other pair can bring them millions every night like AlDub. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT41
It's hard to believe GMA can't clinch a deal w/ APT on the management of AlDub projects when they own the TV franchise, satellites & transmitters that EB relies on so they can reach their audiences daily & earn hundreds of millions a year in ad revenues! #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT41
What gives, GMA7? In Hollywood, movie conglomerates nurture their fandoms through Comicons, Award shows, name it. DC fans got Warner to show the Zack Snyder Cut of Justice League which now tops streaming and increased HBO Max & Go audiences!
In the Philippines, Star Cinema may have hit with HLG with Kath and Alden but Kathniel is very much alive. Solo projects need not end AlDub but why is GMA7 & APT seem to have hardened on splitting it up to the detriment of their basic interests? #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT41 Don't let intrigues, slurs against Alden & Maine crack our wall of unity for the boycott against those who wish to separate them forever. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT42 The only possible outcomes of this boycott are a) we get what we want or b) we don't get what we asked for but we get something better! #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT42 Let's not allow them to enjoy the fruits of their efforts to demolish AlDub. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT42 We want Alden & Maine to be able to work with each other again on their own terms & I know they'll be able to do great work together! AlDub. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT42 AlDub is a great platform to provide quality entertainment to the people. It has 2 charismatic, talented & bankable stars in Maine & Alden who love & support each other. Only fools fail to see that.
#TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT42 AlDub is a gift to the Philippine showbiz industry to provide wholesome, fun, fresh & interesting entertainment... #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT42 Successful companies offer no excuses for their failings. They fix their problems & create new opportunities for them to succeed. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT42 And successful companies will never squander their prime assets and market advantage. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT42
As each day brings answers, the journey continues... A blessed Sunday to us all... #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT42 Numbers don't lie... EB's AGB Nielsens People Meter TV rating falls from 6.4 points to 5.1 day to day. Never pa akong nasali sa TV ratings measurements so curious ako. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT42 When the situation calls for it, we have to make a stand about the people & issues dear to us. I wish a life of independence and principled success for Alden & Maine, far from people who manipulate them for selfish interests. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT43 Alden & Maine left signs, clues & hints that make us think they're something more than love teammates to each other... #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT43 It's in speaking up and expressing our emotions that we are able to distill, rationalize, weigh them and find meaning & purpose in what we do and care about. Thanks fellow fans for engaging! April 19, 2021. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT43 Ultimately, entertainment is about the fans. It's about giving them the best entertainment that your talent and resources can muster. So when suddenly, Big Media withdraw without explaining, it's like snubbing the fans. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT43 You negotiate to gain value, not to lose value. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT43 When a business relationship is lopsided to one party that brings less to the table, something's amiss. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT44 Ultimately, whatever's the finish line to our efforts, we keep on tweeting because we want the TRUTH. For the past 50 days, AlDub fans have been sending over 100k tweets because we want AlDub back, and the Truth. #TBADNBoycottMXETxAPT44 It must have stunned Big Media that AlDub fans could seize the narrative. We're rewriting the script and the ending is yet to be known. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT44 AlDub fans are up against the collusion of Big Politics and Big Media to scuttle the greatest love team ever. That's why I fight for the political neutrality of AlDub. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT45 Eat Bulaga's AGB Nielsens People Meter TV rating drops further to 4.8 points. Deadma lang sila? There's a reason but they're sadly wrong. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT45 EB & GMA7 may be thinking that this ratings decline is just a period of purging themselves of ties to, or expectations from AlDub fans & this too shall pass. They're wrong coz this is the 1st time they hurt their major audience. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT45 Turning off a major segment of your market when your show relies on advertisers is plain and simple toxic. Eat Bulaga and GMA7 must be dreaming if they think they'll come out unscathed in this mess. Not everything is zarsuela, guys. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT45 Why are AlDub fans able to send over 100k tweets everyday since 51 days ago to support the #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT45 ? Because we're real, we're determined, we're not bots. We know what we want.
Why am I piling on GMA7? Well, they're the only NW that can provide AlDub projects now; they have a franchise with a big reach; Alden's their contract star. But they failed to own the AlDub brand. Why. I'll hazard a guess
#TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT45 This #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT46 has provoked EB, DG, APT, TAPE, MZET & GMA7 to act absurdly, including VS in the list of the greatest Fil actors in 20 years (?), reshuffling execs & project timelines. They only have themselves to blame. 109.7k tweets 4/21/21. Please don't trust politically loaded entertainment blogs, politicians that mix politics & showbiz and we've seen the last of Ram's David as Maine's manager. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT46 It's time for politics to leave showbusiness alone if we want to see better movies focused on telling great stories. It's time we end politicians' exploitation of our stars! #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT46 How I believe AlDub got embroiled in the politics of the Sottos, Jalosjos, ABS and GMA7... #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT46 The main question after Rams David quit as Maine's talent manager is, how will Mike Tuviera be any better? #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT46 Maine & Alden used to trend w/ millions of tweets, an advertising utopia rare in this era. Now, they're lucky if OSFs can hit 50k. What's missing? The feeling of a happy place where fans can just tune in & forget their worries. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT47 All I'm saying is nobody gives a damn about your backroom deals EB, APT, TAPE, MZET & GMA7. We're not here for your cynicism & jadedness. We're here for AlDub. If you're not making people smile, you're failing at entertainment. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT47 When you're happy with somebody, you're more productive & you're undaunted by setbacks. As Alden Richards used to say about Maine Mendoza, everything became easier to do. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT47 Let's not live in regret, nor in "what should've beens" or the "could've beens." We're still here, we can still change things. 53 days and counting... At least 5.3 million tweets na. We're still aiming for the best of AlDub. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT48 Ang sarap lumaban kapag underestimated ka ng kalaban... Ang sarap manggulat! 😁 Mapapakamot na lang sila ng mga ulo. Magpapasahan ng sisi. And then they'll ask, What happened?... Oh, AlDub happened... The fans, the fans ... #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT48 Yesterday, I talked about the amateurs nibbling on the careers of Maine & Alden. Daddy's Gurl director Chris Martinez doesn't know how to craft a cool official statement to calm the boycotting fans. Next: GMA Artists managers... #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT48 Aware kaya ang GMA7 EB Tape, APT, MZET, TV5 at ABS sa galawang langgam? Ants are taken for granted but they do big things for nature. Together, they create bridges to cross the water. AlDub fans ants when they come together... #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT49
AlDub fans are ants when they're a mass of hardworking, humble creatures who know their part in a great whole. Yung mga mayayabang, di nila magets AlDub fans. They should study ants. We help for the great whole no matter what
#TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT49 Just reviewing my thread about the amateurish ways by which GMA Artists managers try to use their actresses vs AlDub. Not fair to the actresses. Not fair to Alden Richards. Did he ask GMA for another LT & a GF? No! #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT49 It's no longer surprising that GMA7 doesn't know what to do w/ AlDub. Judging by the patronizing manner by which they handle the careers of their top talents, just imagine what they can do to Maine if she's in their total control. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT49 Really, AlDub fans just want to see Alden Richards & Maine Mendoza work together again but this time, on bigger & more substantial projects. I hope they don't forget that & somehow use their clout to do those projects. #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT50 Come what may, fellow AlDub fans! 😊 #TBADNBoycottMZETxAPT50
