One Direction fans react to Sharon Cuneta's "One Directioner" comment in YFSF Season 2

'Your Face Sounds Familiar Philippines Season 2' juror Sharon Cuneta and "One Directioner" made it to Twitter's trending topics both nationwide and worldwide last night, and even this morning. But why?

Perhaps you would initially think that 1D fans, known as the Directioners, appreciated Ms. Sharon being also a 1D fan, but it's not. It didn't sound good to them that the MegaStar said she's a "One Directioner", instead of just "Directioner".

During YFSF Season 2 airing last night, September 13, 2015, Sharon Cuneta was asked to comment about celebrity performer Kean Cipriano's performance as Harry Styles of One Direction, singing the latter's hit "What Makes You Beautiful".

Ms. Sharon said she's also a "One Directioner" because of her daughters, and then named all the One Direction members (even the former one, Zayn Malik). "Kaya po ako Directioner, talagang One Directioner ako dahil sa mga anak ko. So talagang alam na alam ko galaw nilang lahat, si Zayn, si Liam, si Niall, si Louis at siyempre si Harry." (I'm a Directioner, I'm really a One Directioner because of my daughters. That's why I'm really very familiar with the moves and gestures of all of them, Zayn, Liam, Niall, Louis and of course, Harry.)

Watch Kean doing Harry Styles, and Sharon's comment in the later part:

Only a few praised Sharon for correctly pronouncing her names, and for being a 1D fan, but many Directioners criticized her for a mistake. I actually got the mistake that she committed. You only say "One Directioner" when you're referring to any of the One Direction members, but if what you mean is that you're a 1D fan, then call yourself a Directioner, and not One Directioner.

It's just a minor thing, but I actually understand why they're making a big deal out of it. A very popular, very dedicated and loyal fandom, all they want perhaps is respect for the hard work and efforts they've exerted to make "Directioners" one of the biggest in the world. And so you better recognize them right.

On the other hand, it's also good to appreciate the fact that someone like Sharon is also a fan of the group, and look on the positive side that she didn't mean any harm.

The sad thing about what happened is some are now saying bad things about the Filipino people, such as this one:

Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 2 airs every Saturday and Sunday on ABS-CBN. It was the 2nd episode of the 2-night premiere of the show, with Ms. Sharon Cuneta (seated in the middle), Jed Madela and Gary V. as jurors. (credit to @YourFacePH)

Leading the scoreboard after their Week 1 performances was Eric Nicolas who convincingly impersonated Willie Revillame and got an almost-perfect 42 points, matching the record of last season's winner Melai Cantiveros when she did Elizabeth Ramsey.

Sam Concepcion as Eminem came 2nd with 27 points, followed by Kakai Bautista as Sia (18 pts), Kean Cipriano as Harry Styles (15 pts) and Denise Laurel as Jennifer Lopez (12 pts).

In the Bottom 3 were Michael Pangilinan as George Michael and KZ Tandingan as Vina Morales both with 5 points, and Myrtle Sarrosa as 2NE1's "Dara" aka Sandara Park with 8 points.

Next week, I'm looking forward to the performances of Kakai as Ai-Ai delas Alas, Sam as Jason Derulo, Michael Pangilinan as Janno Gibbs, Myrtle as Jessa Zaragoza, Kean as Randy Santiago and Denise as Christina Aguilera. -
