Why did AlDub fans rage, boycott PUSH Awards?

MANILA, Philippines - Fans of GMA's KalyeSerye phenomenon AlDub (Alden Richards and Yaya Dub / Maine Mendoza) have taken to social media to express their dismay over PUSH Awards, an annual event created by rival network ABS-CBN to recognize the country's top digital influencers for the year.

AlDub was first introduced on July 16 under the "Juan For All, All for Juan" segment of Eat Bulaga! Pegged as a "KalyeSerye", it was created as a parody to the existing soap operas in the Philippines.

The segment gained traction on August 8, eventually gaining an all-time viewership high for Eat Bulaga! on August 12 of 36.1% mainly due to the tandem's near-meeting.

The official list of nominees for ABS-CBN's PUSH Awards were announced on August 20, 2015.

Nominees under the "Favorite Group or Tandem" category includes KathNiel (Kathrine Bernardo + Daniel Padilla), LizQuen (Liza Soberano + Enrique Gil), JaDine (James Reid + Nadine Lustre), Team Kramer and LoiShua (Loisa Andalio + Joshua Garcia).

Aside from AlDub (Alden Richards, Yaya Dub), love tandems by rival network GMA are not included, such as AlKris (Aljur Abrenica, Kris Bernal) and DongYan (Dingdong Dantes, Marian Rivera)

On September 10, comedian and Eat Bulaga! host Joey De Leon warned viewers against supporting traditional popularity contests or "TRAPO".

He tweeted, saying "Babala: ingat sa TRAP at TRAPO (Traditional Popularity contest kuno). Nothing to prove na AlDub.#ALDUBKoTo"

This was immediately reposted by ALDUB fan account ALDUB NATION PHL with the message "BOYCOTT PUSH AWARDS! SI HENYO NA NAGSABI @AngPoetNyo MAGINGAT AT LETS SAVE MAINE."

On September 10, Yaya Dub's Facebook page also reposted Joey de Leon's tweet and added a warning of her own, again calling for boycott over ABS-CBN's PUSH Awards. The post alleges that the rival network attempted to get Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza) from Eat Bulaga! and GMA since she was not yet a contract star.

The post also accused PUSH Awards of fixing the winners, and attempting to make a trend.

BABALA: Warning again from my friend who's working on a rival station but a certified Kapuso and AlDub fan. WAG NA WAG nyung papatulan ung PUSH MO AWARDS nila for 3 reasons.

1. Attempt to get Maine from EB and GMA since di pa siya contract star ng GMA (ATTEMPT HA ATTEMPT).

2. Para pahiyain tayung mga fans ng AlDub. Iluluto nila yang botohan na yan.

3. To use us to make trend of this CHEAP AWARDS.

Evidence:

1. Kung open awards to bakit AlDub lang ang kasama sa loveteam eh may BiGuel, TomCar, DongYan? Because they can use us to make trend.

2. Si Maine kasama sa individual awards pero si Alden hindi pero sa loveteam kasama naman siya? Dahil malaki ang interes nila kay Maine attempt na nila to para tuksuhin si Maine with "benefits" strategy and not money.

3. Sa 60 years ng tinagal ng rival station madami na silang nalokong tao at patuloy na lolokohin at gagamitin pa i.e. Ondoy, Sendong, Yolanda, Bohol earthquake donations na ginawang papremyo sa mga shows nila. They even used John Cena's videos para kumagat mga tao mag donate sa kanila.

4. No. 1 bashers ni Maine andyan sa kanila so bakit natin siya ipapahamak sa TRAP na to If you love AlDub and Maine, di nyu hahayaan gamitin sila ng kalaban para umangat network nila PALAGPASIN NYO NA TO PLEASE CHEAP AWARDS LANG TO AANHIN MO AWARD KUNG NAGPAGAMIT KA LANG.

Palagpasin nyo to at mas malaking award pa ang makukuha ng dalawa from respected and prestigious awards here and abroad Wag na sana ma delete I have NO INTENTION to bring BV mga nagcocomment lang ang problema pinost ko to di bilang AlDub fan kung di bilang tao na ayaw nagpapaloko.

So PLEASE if you really love them protektahan natin sila at mga sarili naten para di tayu MALOKO HELP ME TO SPREAD THIS PARA MALAMAN NG LAHAT. (repost)

And here's Sir Joey's tweet. ‪#‎ALDUBKoTo‬ -Admin
