Heart Evangelista has always been in the center of attention, whether it’s for being a well-loved actress, an avid fashionista, a well-heeled jetsetter, a talented painter, or simply just a filthy rich celebrity. Along with all the hats she wears comes the criticism and bashing of many netizens, including this most recent one that accused her of being a “gold digger.”
The basher’s uncalled-for accusation
Out of nowhere, an anonymous Twitter account under the username @BasherNgBayan10 accused the actress of being “a gold digger”, claiming this is “a fact” and tagging Heart’s official account. The tweet was followed with nothing else from the user, despite getting over hundreds of quote tweets and replies.

The tweet quickly got the artist’s attention, but she doesn’t even seem fazed. Heart clapped back with little fuss and a lot of class.
“I don’t need anybody to survive. I am a woman and a woman can be or do anything she wants if she wills it,” the actress said.
Netizens only have love and support for Heart
After posting, Heart’s tweet immediately garnered hundreds of retweets and thousands of likes. Netizens were also quick to defend her under the basher’s post and express support for her classy response, taking her statement as an empowering message for women. As people say, she’s a strong independent woman who need no man.

Heart has always shut down the bashers
This isn’t the first time that the actress slammed bashers with a short yet classy response. In 2020, a netizen called her “artificial”, while another accused her of being “out of touch, privileged, and problematic.” Less than a year later, she cleared up rumors that she got plastic surgery for her nose.
And aside from her classy comebacks, Heart is also known on social media for her hilarious, wacky posts. We love an unbothered queen.
