Yam Concepcion has been receiving a lot of mean comments and hate tweets for the past months because of her character in the Kapamilya hit series, “Halik.”
You might have visited Yam’s Instagram a few times and there you will see all the hate comments.
In a previous interview, Yam mentioned that she finds the comments really funny as it shows how hooked the viewers are.

She admitted, “I’m not gonna lie. Nung umpisa affected ako.
“People are just so mean. Like, ano ba, that’s not me, that’s just the character I portray. But sometimes kasi people take it too personally eh. They would think na you’re really malandi, kabit ‘yan, pumapatol ‘yan—all these hateful words. Of course, I’m a very sensitive person so I get hurt also.”
But as the show progressed, Yam get used to it and also all the positive comments that she get from her supporters helped.
In fact she also won her very first acting award last November for her role. She was awarded by the Philippine Social Media Awards as Trending Actress of the year.
