"I Don't Hate You #KathNiel Fans": KAKAI BAUTISTA Apologizes After Twitter "Experiment"
Kakai Bautista found herself in hot water after an exchange of some strong words with KathNiel fans in several now-deleted tweets.
The entire debacle started when a KN fan reposted Kakai's boomerang video with her good friend Kathryn Bernardo, but with Kakai cropped out. The singer-actress replied to the said repost, "Minsan nakakacrop din talaga ang mukha ko," followed by a laughing emoji.
Minsan nakakacrop din talaga ang mukha ko😂 https://t.co/QxC92S0oRS— 𝑪𝒂𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒓𝒊𝒏𝒆 𝑩𝒂𝒖𝒕𝒊𝒔𝒕𝒂 (@kakaibautista) February 23, 2020
What followed though was a series of serious tweets which KN fan Bec (@immharvic) documented. In Bec's Twitter thread that contained screenshots, Kakai apparently sent a direct message (DM) to another fan saying, "Crop mo lang ng crop."
Wala daw siyang issue about sa pag-crop pero pinost niya yung original photo nila ni Kath tapos may pasakalye pang caption na ganun. Haha.— Bec (@immharvic) February 24, 2020

4th pic: Diniem mo ako.
Ikaw ang nauna. Kaya lang naman nag-react ng violente ang fans dahil sa LUCIFER mo. pic.twitter.com/3Oy9aHUDjG
"Wag kayong mag alala. Nakakarating lahat sa inidolo nyo kung paano nyo ako bastusin. Hindi nyo ako kailangang gustuhin. PERO wala din kayong karapatan BASTUSIN ako. Natawa lang ako sa pag crop anu-ano nang sinabe. [Mga] Hijo, hija. Mababait na bata ang mga inidolo nyo. Kaya nyo nga IDOL, gayahin nyo. Masyado kayong defensive at nadudyusdyosan. Wag ganun," Kakai wrote in another DM to Bec, according to the screenshots.
Apparently, what irked KN fans was when Kakai mentioned Lucifer in a tweet about some rude fans, whom she did not name: "Dami talagang mga fans na offensive. Bastos. Below the belt. Minsan iniisip ko, sino ba talaga ang inidolo nila? yung mga taong mabubuti naman ang pagkatao na IDOL nila, Or si lucifer? Sobrang contradicting eh. Hooh."
However, in a now-deleted tweet, the former MYX Celebrity VJ replied to a KN fan and denied that she was pertaining to them in the said "Lucifer" tweet while also clarifying that she had no problem with being cropped.
"Kayo ang may issue. Nakatawa nga ako sa tweet. Tinamaan ba kayo sa isa kong [tweet] about fans na offensive? So inaamin nyo ba? hay naku kayo. it's a general tweet. Life is not always about u. Wala akong issue sa pag-crop. Who's petty now," she wrote.

The issue started when one KN fan posted Kath's pic and apparently you were cropped. Girl, hindi ikaw ang first time ma-crop sa picture. Out of all people na na-crop sa picture ikaw ang ang nagpaka-petty at kung saan saan na umabot ang issue mo. pic.twitter.com/hSinQVWf1V
In another now-deleted tweet, the Hello, Love, Goodbye cast member threatened that she would harm herself because of KN fans: "I'll hang myself today, HAPPY? KATHNIEL fans? Maybe if i kill myself today, because I really feel unloved because of how you are treating me. Then I'll be the reall VICTIM of your verbal Abuse. HAPPY?"
After garnering some mixed reactions, Kakai revealed that she doesn't really intend to harm herself and that she was just conducting an experiment as to how people would react: "How much hate you respond to that tweet, is the experiment. I will not do it. I got better understanding on what people can give to you when they don't like you."
