Some Ppop fans express their disapproval of BGYO, resulting in ‘DISBANDBGYO’ trend

Ppop fans dominated the Philippine X (formerly Twitter) scene as they called for Ppop boy group BGYO (Becoming the change, Going further You and I, Originally Filipino) to be disbanded. The group consists of 5 members who debuted under ABS-CBN’s Star Magic in 2021.

BGYO is allegedly associated with issues of cheating and abuse. Because of the recent birthday party that Gelo hosted and the appearance of some of the BINI members in it, the Ppop community is currently in shambles as Blooms try their utmost to protect the reputation of BINI from being linked to BGYO, while ACEs (BGYO’s fandom name) attempt to defend their boys. 

One user tweeted on X (formerly known as Twitter) that idols should be good examples.

Another user expressed her ‘birthday greeting’ by tweeting a screenshot of a tweet and a conversation of Gelo with an anonymous woman.

‘belated happy birthday to you and just a lil gift from me to you @BGYO_Gelo sana tapos ka na gumawa ng memories sa bawat sulok ng condo ni whoever that person is [belated happy birthday to you and just a lil gift from me to you @BGYO_Gelo i hope you’re done creating memories in every corner of the condo of whoever that person is].’ the user wrote.

A user called out to BGYO’s management to keep them in check. The user wrote:

ang kalaban ay bgyo and the management that keeps tolerating this behavior from them. wag itong gawing ticket to be hateful towards the girls and disguising it as educating them. anyways #DISBANDBGYO [the enemies are bgyo and the management that keeps tolerating this behavior from them. don’t make this as your ticket to be hateful toward the girls [BINI] and disguising it as educating them. anyways #DISBANDBGYO’

An ACE tweeted a video of BGYO showing their determination and will-power to achieve their dreams. He captioned how unfair it is for the boy band to be thrown such hate when other fandoms were pulling down others just so their idols can move up.

Another ACE tweeted on what seems to be like a life-threatening tweet from an alleged BINI fan.

A user commented on the tweet, ‘Protect sexualizers? LOL”

Another user called out the behavior of some Blooms who were getting too toxic because of the recent happenings. She mentioned that their idols are not accountable for the fans’ trauma and that they should seek medical help instead of pushing them to make a statement.

Amidst the fandom war between ACES and Blooms, a bloom tweeted her funny conversation with her boyfriend.

The current fandom war is showing the public that Filipino fans are now holding their idols accountable for their actions.
