A video has surfaced on Instagram showing Kapamilya star Julia Barreto allegedly snubbing some fans in London. Barretto, together with other ABS-CBN stars, was in the UK capital for a performance for ASAP20, the station's flagship weekend variety show.
Here's a different post, made by Julia herself, which proves she was indeed in London:
Posted by Instagram user carolina_fifteen yesterday, the aforementioned clip shows Julia giving ecstatic fans the cold shoulder as she exited a building. The clip then cuts to another scene with Julia on the way to a private van. The crowd continues to try to get her attention but the actress only manages a faint smile before the clip ends.
Some folks are calling her a snob, and demand that she should act more like an artista—that is, someone who waves and smiles incessantly for the camera. But some commenters have also been more understanding, saying that she could've merely been just tired. To be fair to Julia, the said footage also didn't show the whole situation. There's an abrupt cut in between the clips when she exited the building and when the recording resumed. Something might have happened in between that triggered her reaction.
There was also a moment in the video in which she appeared to acknowledge the fans by smiling back at them before the view was blocked by a certain guy in black.

[UPDATE: As of 5:10 p.m. today, the owner of the video, IG user carolina_fifteen, made her account private. You'll need to follow her in order to see her posts. However, as always, the "responsible" people of the Internet have already uploaded the video on YouTube.]
Why was Julia so suplada? We've got a few theories!
1) SHE'S HAVING A BAD HAIR DAY!
Noticed how she immediately held her hair when she saw the fans standing by? Baka walang Rejoice sa London?
2) SHE'S WORRIED THAT SHE MIGHT MISS EAT BULAGA'S LATEST KALYESERYE
Because who here hasn't been swept with the #AlDub fever?
3) MAY PINAGDADAANAN
Pastillas, you want?
4) SHE'S SUFFERING FROM A SERIOUS CASE OF STIFF NECK
...and her doctor advised her not to move her head too much.
5) SHE'S A NORMAL HUMAN BEING, SOMEONE WHO ALSO EXPERIENCES MOOD SWINGS, AND THAT WE PROBABLY SHOULDN'T JUDGE HER ON ACCOUNT OF ONE VIDEO
