Viral video: Fan kisses Daniel Padilla on lips

Kapamilya teen heartthrob Daniel Padilla got a kiss from a die-hard fan while performing a song number on ASAP 18 over the weekend. Surprised viewers saw what appeared to be a ‘lips to lips’ from the angle of the live cam.

The hashtag #RespectDanielPadilla immediately became a trending topic on Twitter nationwide after some of the young actor’s followers allegedly hit the girl with harsh words on social networking sites.

According to a report on “Umagang Kay Ganda” aired Monday morning, Daniel clarified that the fan’s kiss landed on his nose rather than his lips.

“Hindi po tumama sa [lips] TV mukhang tumama pero hindi...pero medyo nasipsip niya yung ilong ko sa halik niya pero hindi po sa lips,” he said.

But critics believe it was right on target and said the teen idol’s handlers naturally have to come up with a news release that the “fan failed to kiss Daniel on the lips” to protect his image.

No one, not even his loveteam partner Kathryn Bernardo, has kissed the young actor on the lips on national TV...until the daring fan did it.
