Alex Gonzaga is trending again on social media as netizens have a lot to say about the incident
Showbiz personality Alex Gonzaga is trending again on social media as she embroils herself in a new issue during her 35th birthday celebration.
The vlogger-actress is in hot water after a video from her birthday party went viral on social media on January 16, 2023, the same day of her birthday.
Gonzaga held a birthday salubong event at Joya Lofts and Towers on January 15, 2023. In the video, Gonzaga was seen having fun while her guests sang “Happy Birthday” as she was about to blow her birthday candle on a chocolate cake.
After blowing the candle, however, she got some frosting on her hand and wiped it on the forehead of the waiter carrying the cake.
The video zoomed in to the waiter, who seemed to be surprised but shyly smiled at what happened.
According to netizens, Dani Barretto took and uploaded the video on her Instagram stories but has since deleted the video when it blew up.
I guess masama talaga ang ugali nya. That wasn’t funny. Ni hindi nya naman kilala yungs server (he looks like a server). Bastos. pic.twitter.com/REXmeFLZm4— ricci (@ricci_richy) January 16, 2023
Gonzaga’s joke did not sit well with netizens, who criticized her on social media. So much so that her name became a trending topic on Twitter.
Aside from “Alex Gonzaga,” the words “Mikee,” “Bastos,” “Catherine,” and “Kuya” also trended on Twitter. Upon opening these words on Twitter, the tweets were all about Gonzaga’s incident with the waiter.
“Mikee” is Lipa City councilor Mikee Morada, Gonzaga’s husband who was beside him when the incident happened. “Catherine” is Gonzaga’s real name, “Kuya” pertains to the waiter while “Bastos” was a word netizens were using to describe Gonzaga’s behavior towards the waiter.
Even influencers such as Janina Vela, AC Soriano, and LA Aguinaldo, and content creator Arshie Larga tweeted their reactions about the incident.
Siguro mas-acceptable ito kung ka-close mo yung tao, pero dahil sa “power dynamics” dito —Kuya as the server and Ms. Alex as the served— hindi niya magagawa yun ??— Janina Vela (@janinavela) January 16, 2023
Service workers are our equals. It’s their job to serve, but it’s our job to give them the respect they deserve. https://t.co/6i7wZHDLcQ

What if yung server ang gumawa sa kanya nun. Ano kaya ang mararamdaman nya?— Arshie Larga (@Arshiethromycin) January 16, 2023
Oh wait, hindi pala gagawin ng server yun since may manners sya. https://t.co/rVZ2BSNqLN
Gonzaga, at press time, has not made any statement or comment regarding the issue, as well as those who attended the party.
