Nadine Lustre Reaps Negative Feedback From Netizens For Insinuating That She's Already Living In With James Reid

NADINE LUSTRE didn’t know what hit her after she insinuated that she and boyfriend James Reid are now living in. Her stance is defiant, saying in a TV interview: “If that was true, so what? It’s not new anymore. Like, there are younger couples na mas young pa sa akin living in. It’s normal na, eh! Come on, guys! It’s 2017! Let’s all just be open-minded.”

She really said quite a mouthful, an admittance that yes, they are indeed living because if they’re not, it’s so easy to blurt out that “No! We’re not living in!” Let’s give her credit for being honest. But the feedback in social media is so terribly against her. There are some folks who supported her, saying “Llet’s just let her and James do what they want to do since they’re of the right age, 24, and no longer need the permission of their respective parents.”

But a lot more people are more concerned about the kind of message they are giving to the young people who make up the bulk of their fans. One mother says living in might be normal for Nadine but not her. She said she was actually turned off by Nadine as she believes in the holy sacrament of matrimony and she will never ever let her own children to imitate Nadine and James.

The concerned mom adds: “She’s a role model to so many youngsters. As a parent, I wish she didn’t say that ‘It’s normal, because in as much as it’s a couple’s choice to ‘live-in’, it is not and should not be the norm. It’s just the same as with freedom comes responsibilities as well. Come on, I know it’s 2017. But Nadine has young followers. It’s so easy to request not to be asked such question if she will not confirm nor deny it anyway. Obviously, she wants to be talked about for all the wrong reasons nga lang. It’s all for the fame. Hindi dahil sa ginagawa ng marami, ibig sabihin na ‘yun ang tama.

Nakaka-disappoint ang sagot niya. May mga ine-endorse pa naman siyang produkto at Kids’ Choice awardee pa naman. Totoo man o hindi, sana hindi mo naman prinomote na okey lang, kasi maraming gumagawa. Marami kayong batang fans. As celebrities, may responsibilidad kayo sa audience n’yo. Sa mga magre-react na mas­yadong mapagmalinis ang comment ko, tanungin ko kayo: kung anak n’yo si Nadine, okey lang ba sa inyo na nakikipag-live in siya? Kaya parami nang parami ang kabataang maagang nabubuntis, kasi may mga taong ganyan mag-isip. Hindi kasi porke’t 2017 na nga­yon ay okey lang yan. At hindi porke’t madaming gumagawa ay tama na. Kinukunsinti na lang din kasi ng iba kaya feeling nila, tama sila.”
