Netizens defend Alodia Gosiengfiao and Wil Dasovich after recent Tiktok controversy; the couple clarifies the issue

Some accused the couple of promoting toxic masculinity and controlling relationships but other netizens defended them and explained that it was an overreaction of the ones that criticized it.

  • Couple Alodia Gosiengfiao and Wil Dasovich found themselves in the middle of a controversy involving one of their TikTok videos.
  • Alodia and Wil uploaded a video explaining their side. 

Alodia Gosiengfiao and Wil Dasovich earned criticism from some netizens for one of their TikTok videos.

The video showed Alodia acting cute with her tank top and jacket before a topless Wil appeared. Alodia’s jacket was zipped up when Wil joined her.

A tweet by a netizen called out the couple for supposedly “romanticizing guys who control their girlfriends”.

Another Twitter user also said that it showed “patriarchy”.

A viewer of their vlogs said that Wil doesn’t normally control what Alodia wears, but the video “normalizes” toxic masculinity.

“I’ve watched their vlogs before and usually wil doesnt control what alodia wears naman BUT this video normalizes toxic masculinity and even promotes controlling your partner’s self-expression as sweet and that is NOT okay,” she wrote.

While some called them out for the video, others explained that it was a Tiktok concept and their relationship is not at all controlling.

“You should have known their rela in the first place. Wil supports of what Alodia wears.”

Another netizen clarified that it wasn’t meant to be taken seriously as Tiktok isn’t meant to be a serious platform.

And besides, Alodia is a cosplayer so it is known that she does wear what she likes, even if she had to make the outfits herself.

Another netizen said that people obviously just want to see Alodia “jiggle her boobies” which is why they are making a big deal out of it.

Other Twitter users defended the couple.

Shortly after the argument exploded on Twitter, Alodia and Wil uploaded a video addressing the issue.

“Nagulat talaga ako kasi never kong naisip na there’s anything controversial about this,” Wil said.

“Ang nakakatawa kasi, we posted it on TikTok, Facebook, Instagram… wala man lang isang negative comment [sa] hundreds of thousands of vides. Maybe a million across all of those. Nothing negative. On Twitter alone, it almost got two million views in less than a day for all the wrong reasons.”

They explained that it should never be taken out of context and the issue started because people started over-analyzing the video.

Wil added that their video is a twist of the original context of the meme.

Alodia clarified that she was the one who zipped up her video and Wil had nothing to do with it. The couple then scrolled through the comments and tweets to explain every point of the issue.
