Did this TikTok ‘influencer’ go too far for clout?

January 28th, 2021

Gabo Adeva, an online creator under Star Image Artist Management, was recently caught in hot water after posting a problematic TikTok.

Adeva was seen to be mimicking a gas station attendant and filling up someone’s car, which is not allowed without proper training. Starring opposite him in the skit, his friend appeared to be shouting at Adeva because he was impatient. This begs the question, “Is that how they typically treat service workers?” The video could also put the jobs of the actual staff in jeopardy for violating gas station rules.

Adeva was also criticized for not abiding by the COVID-19 safety protocols as he wasn’t wearing a face mask. Many internet users expressed on Twitter that they couldn’t find anything entertaining about the video at all.

Baka po nang hinayang na di makita pag ka oa nag rosy cheeks nya.. Sana may sumampal para mas lalong mamula, natural blush pa yon 😜

Mga “bata” nga naman.

“Bata” = Batang isip. No sense of responsibility.

While the TikTok has since then been deleted from his profile, he seemed to lack any guilt even if his followers called him out on his reckless actions.

Ndi ko na makita Vid nya na to, deleted na ata sa tiktok nya? Natakot?

The ‘influencer’ eventually posted an apology video to address to issue.



sorry. #fyp #foryou

While Adeva may have said ‘sorry’, his intentions appear questionable to his critics and other Twitter users. He was instantly caught under fire after he posted the infamous TikTok, so why did it take him three whole days to finally say something?
