10 reasons why AlDub sucks – #1 will drive you mad!


In the recent Tamang Panahon episode of Eat Bulaga’s kalye serye, AlDub nation once again proved their love and support to their favorite loveteam of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza.  With over 41 million tweets, 55,000 live audience and historical commercial break-free episode, who will dare to say that AlDub is not a global phenomenon already?

But no matter how massive the fandom of AlDub Nation is, there are still people who hate/dislike and literally don’t buy them. In a reddit thread we have found, netizens express the reasons why they don’t care about the perennial twitter trending topic. The top ten reasons were compiled by ASTIG.PH.

10. ALDUB FANS ARE WORST KEYBOARD WARRIORS

Screen Shot 2015-10-26 at 9.27.48 PMI hate it because of the fandom(although I hate all fandom).Diehard fans are the worst keyboard warrior.

9. FANS ARE LIKE ZOMBIES WHO WANTS A WORLD WAR III

I don’t dislike aldub per se but the fan who became zombies because of it. Yung tipong nag-status ka lang na hindi mo trip yung trip nila e akala mo world war 3 na kung maka-react.

8. THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY IS THRIVING WITH LOVETEAMS

It’s not that I hate Aldub, it’s just that the entertainment industry is already thriving with loveteams, so medyo nakakaumay na rin. I watch kalyeserye because of Jose, Wally and Paolo and their comedic strides, kinda reminiscent of Dolphy/Panchito/Babalu kasi IMO. Saka pang lighten ng mood bago sumabak sa matinding traffic at stress sa trabaho.

7. WHY PEOPLE INVESTED SO MUCH IN A TOTALLY SCRIPTED SHOW?

It’s not that I hate them, in fact I find the girl very pretty

it just boggles my mind how invested people are in this totally scripted show?
may maluha luha pa sa tuwa ang mga tao nakita ko sa TV kanina.

Then may mga nag aaway pa ang mga tao regarding pastillas girl and aldub?

Like, really?! As in?

6. IT’S ABOUT JOEY DE LEON

5. THE WRITING IS ABYSMAL, THE ACTING IS OA

Screen Shot 2015-10-26 at 9.36.23 PM

I don’t like AlDub, period. Why? The “writing” is abysmal, the acting is OA, and it’s lowest common denominator humor. But to each his own right? Let people enjoy it, just because I don’t like it doesn’t mean I should force my preferences on others.

4. DIE HARD FANS ARE ANNOYING

I don’t particularly hate Aldub. I just don’t prefer watching local TV programs. But I do find some die hard fans annoying.

I did give it a try. Pero wala eh. Di naman ako nakakaramdam ng kilig sa Aldub. Don’t hate me. Sadyang manhid lang talaga ako.

3. LIKE CARTOON MOVIES FROM DISNEY

Screen Shot 2015-10-26 at 9.46.27 PMMy opinion is, I don’t like it. To me its so schmaltzy, unreal and infantile, its like watching a cartoon movies from Disney a bad one. I do like Disney animation but when you put it in real life it does not work.

Music sounds like a religious mass, like a cult. It’s just not for me.

2. IT’S NOT ABOUT ALDUB, IT’S THE MEDIA WARS

Screen Shot 2015-10-26 at 9.46.17 PMI don’t hate aldub. it’s the media wars, fighting over fucking tweets, and the sheeple mentality. petty things seemingly important. smh

1. WHY THE HELL SHOUT YOUR ALDUB FANDOM TO THE WORLD?

Screen Shot 2015-10-26 at 10.13.46 PM

Well, apart from it’s more than stereotypically overacting (OA), the garish makeup, the grimacing of the Yaya while lypsyncing to whatever song, the clowns in drag, the playing up to the audience, the juxtaposition of the apparent extreme wealth and power (security personnel) of the Lola’s compared to the poverty of the masses at the shooting locations- is the ubiquity of it, this AlDub.

I get that people raised on low quality TV fare love it. It’s their preference. But do they have to shout it out to the whole world? Isn’t it enough that they enjoy this schmaltzy, overwrought production for 2 to 2 1/2 hours every day save Sundays? Do they have to announce it to all of us? Why do they have the need to post their allegiance to AlDub on our FB pages? What’s with GMA News constant need to update us on everything AlDub? What about all the new commercials featuring the male and female protagonists of AlDub? What about the need to brag about the tweets AlDub has been getting- 22 million…25 million…35 million? Suckers all. Talk about people acting like sheep!

I get it that they’re fans. But must they be evangelizers of the Word of AlDub? Much like we dislike to be accosted in public by missionaries of whatever denomination who have taken it upon themselves to convert people, I resent that I have to be bombarded by messages preaching the good of AlDub all the time. That there’s no accounting for taste is evident in us. Fine. Just keep the rest of us who don’t find it, AlDub, entertaining at all, and IMHO, just find it distasteful, out of it!

Do you believe on their reasons why they don’t like AlDub? Comment your thoughts.

  1. i am also guilty, stupid fan of aldub BEFORE. i was shouting loudly every time albub is showing sweetness to each other in EB but it came to a point that i realized that no matter hard i shout for them as a fan they wouldn’t even appreciate my efforts. i also noticed that since maine m received catholic awards for promoting christian values it is just superfluous. lately, especially during her birthday celebration it became ok to her that alden kissed her in national tv. the latest is her maldives get away with her sister wearing 2 piece bikini. i thought she’s conservative showing christian values. that was before sharing the award with lola nidora (wally). now, she’s showing the wild side of her. because of that i am NO LONGER A FAN OF HER and any celebrities.

  2. As a filipino myself, you are totally correct, my mom is not THAT mom anymore, she just doesn't care anymore about us, she just lazies around the house, bringing that monster (AlDub) everywhere she goes, even at my graduation day, seriously!!?! she is also a DIE HARD FAN herself, she has twitter, almost anywhere you look, on her phone, laptop. she even has a fan account! and creepy part is, she reads AlDub…FANFICTION!!?!?!! fanfiction people!
