Kris Aquino’s viral ‘because’ meme proves she’s a pop culture icon

Queen of All Media Kris Aquino used to dominate our TV screens at one point in our lives. From morning talk shows to noontime and afternoon gameshows to primetime teleseryes all the way to late-night talk shows, name it – Kris has got you covered for your daily source of entertainment. Yep, seven days a week. Well, at least she used to.

Throughout the years, Kris appeared in numerous successful films and TV shows that cemented herself as a household name. True, she comes from an influential family, but Kris trod her own path and did what she does best: talk with no holds barred. Indeed, her transparent personality made everything she does worth talking about – and that’s we what made her an icon.

After leaving her home network for 20 years back in 2016, Kris struggled to find her space in the world of television. But thanks to the name she has built over the years, the 49-year-old A-list star easily bounced back through social media. Like hey, did she really leave at all? 

Just recently, Kris took over social media by storm through a meme. Yep, she was literally everywhere. From Facebook to Twitter to Instagram, Kris once again became a meme thanks to her 2013 interview featuring Kim Chiu where the latter seemed to have somehow gotten under her skin. We don’t know about you, but we couldn’t think of a better response to people on social media who have lost their senses (aka trolls) than a Kris Aquino meme!

If you ask us why she didn’t have, well, there’s only one answer: BECAUSE she is THE Kris Aquino. Love her or hate her, Kris will always be a part of the lives of every Filipino. And while we no longer see her as often as we do back when she was still actively hosting some of the most iconic TV shows on television, Kris has proven time and again in the last five years that she will always be the queen of local pop culture.
