Donnalyn Bartolome started her career as a YouTuber. She has gained a modicum of fame by vlogging about her daily life and by releasing covers of various songs. Due to her naturally energetic personality and angelic voice, the aspiring singer-songwriter is now a recording artist. Consequently, her fan base has also grown considerably larger.
However, being exposed to the limelight means she also has to deal with the public’s unsolicited remarks. Recently, Donnalyn Bartolome took to Facebook to express her feelings about the malicious comments some of her followers left on a recent Instagram post.
On the first day of 2018, Donnalyn uploaded a series of photos on Instagram to show her gratitude and genuine happiness for reaching a milestone of 900,000 followers. Unfortunately, it seems like some of her followers had a different take on one particular photo. The photo in question showed Donnalyn squatting while blowing a ‘torotot’.
An excerpt of her caption reads:
“Not done making noise because I am celebrating New Year for one month!! Hahaha!!”
Meanwhile, Donnalyn felt the need to explain herself as she did not want to be linked to any issues regarding misogyny and sexism. Thus, she updated her caption by writing: “*inappropriate comments will be deleted.”
The 23-year-old performer admitted that she had thought of deleting the picture. However, she was afraid that it would make her seem guilty. On a three-minute-long video, she clarified that she never had any intention of making her photo scandalous.
Here are the comments from the netizens:
