#WeBlockAsOne has been created by celebrities and netizens in their efforts to block online trolls who have nothing to do but spread nonsense.
Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla were attacked by trolls recently for their stance regarding ABS-CBN’s shutdown. KathNiel was bashed by vlogger Banat By (aka Byron Cristobal, Mocha Uson’s manager) after their online protest on May 13.
KathNiel went on about the media giant’s franchise renewal, freedom of information, labor issues and other sensitive topics. Padilla defended the network’s stars as well. Banat By accused the couple of putting on an act to appear relevant.
#StarveTheTroll was also created by KathNiel’s Twitter fan page and KN Social Media Moderators.

Frankie Pangilinan has also been a victim of online trolls.
for all the times you managed to make me question my self worth, for all the times you threatened to find me, hurt me, kill me,
for all the times you tried to silence me,
and for everyone who’s felt the same —
for everyone who deserves better.#WeBlockAsOne

QUICK MESSAGE TO KATHNIEL FANS: If DDS trolls claim that mass reporting is censorship, please remind them that what you're doing is responsible gatekeeping. Please sustain the #WeBlockAsOne campaign. In the future, is it possible for us to unite in defending press freedom?

All fandoms should unite to stop this. KathNiel is so proud of you guys. They messed with the wrong fandom. Trolls no more#WeBlockAsOne
