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”.
please stop romanticizing men who dictate how you should dress in the guise of lOvE—don’t let anyone take away your agency!!!
plus… he literally appeared half-naked… so he can show as much skin as he wants but she can’t?? yikes the patriarchy is strong in this one https://t.co/ly9ymXxXYO

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.
This isn’t romanticizing guys controling their gfs.
Please do watch some videos with the tiktok concept.
She stopped Alodia right on time before here boobs bounce for the tiktok video concept.
She is protecting her for malicious viewers. Pun inteneded https://t.co/Dt2yPuRVwG

“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.
It's Tiktok people! Tik to the freaking tok! Not Linkedin. Tiktok is not a "serious" platform, it's meant to be light and just easy breezy contents, take a chill pill people. Alodia is awesome.

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.
so much hate comments :// pero in real life, alodia wears what she wants naman especially siguro when she cosplays. gina attack gid si wil hahaha https://t.co/KUC0OVmS0a

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.

The funny part about this whole Alodia and Wil issue is that they weren't even doing anything wrong BUT people just had to fucking ruin everything and make it seem like what they did was a bad thing kahit wala naman silang tinatapakan na tao JUSKO BRING BACK THE OLD TWITTER PLS!!
— w. (@Ariesxwxsxv) April 16, 2020
OB-VIOUS-LY, this is for those manyak people wanting to feast on @alodia's jiggly front. This actually means, "Guys, I know how you your brain works. Don't look at my gf's boobs." Jusko si @wil_dasovich pa nga madalas na photographer sa mga sexy shots ng GF nya. 🙄 https://t.co/IrOXeLuYFR

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.
