Hindi na bago ang pangalan ni Buknoy Glamurrr kung pag-uusapan ang mga kontrobersiya lalo na sa social media.
Una siyang napag-usapan sa kaniyang komento sa isang “tricycle driver” na tila isang pangmamaliit dahil sa hanapbuhay nito.
Sumunod dito ang ilang ulit na bangayan nila ni Awra Briguela. Paulit-ulit at tila hindi matapos-tapos ang issue na ito na umani na rin ng pansin at batikos ng mga netizens.
Karamihan ay kumampi kay Awra at ilan ang nagsabing tila humahanap lamang ng atensyon si Buknoy upang patuloy na mapag-usapan.
Nitong araw nga ng Pasko ay lumutang na naman ang pangalan ni Buknoy sa trending list ng Twitter.
Usap-usapan ang trailer ng Alter, ang BL series na pinagbibidahan niya at ng dating rumored boyfriend ni Awra na si Feng Dela Cruz.
[NEW] Star Image Digital Network dropped their next BL project entitled, #Alter, an original written story by Petite Brockvich.

Kapansin-pansin ang ilang maseselang eksena na nakapukaw ng atensyon ng mga netizens dahil nga 16 years pa lamang si Buknoy at isa pa lamang menor de edad.
Narito ang ilang komento ng mga netizens.
buknoy and feng in a bl series with a questionable theme? buknoy is literally 16 years old and feng is 20 years old. the title itself already gives out the theme it will revolve around. pic.twitter.com/tPi4bYajyY

The right thing to do is to report Buknoy's series' trailer as child abuse on @YouTube to be taken down. Demand from its creator to recast him as the lead and issue a pulic apology. Here is the link to that needs to be reported. https://t.co/zIkecbTdRm pic.twitter.com/aSlxeC4H6Y

Dahil sa mga batikos, nag-post ng komento ang Star Image Digital Network, ang producer ng series na ito, sa kanilang YouTube channel.
Ang sabi nila:
First of all, it’s Christmas day! Don’t let hatred enter your heart. Before you bash, please give chance to the story. We promise that this series will give a lot of lessons in life, especially about family. About the age of Buknoy, yes he is 1 6. We seek consent from his parents and we have signed agreement for all engagements with Buknoy. This is a BL Series. So some scenes may not be suitable for young audience. Parental guidance is strongly recommended.
Before judging this series, what about the film “Batang Poz” with Awra Briguela? He’s just 1 6 also and he did a very daring sex scene. Same as with this series. It is an art and craft to convey message of inspiration, hope, love and respect. Merry Christmas everyone!
Sa kasalukuyan ay burado na ang comment at naka-disable na rin ang comment section ng nasabing trailer video. Ngunit maagap ang ilang netizens dahil nakuhanan pa nila ito ng screenshot bago tuluyang i-delete.
Sa halip na makatulong sa pagpapaliwanag, lalo pa itong nakadagdag sa init ng usapin dahil sa tila baluktot na pangangatwirang ito.
the way how they're pointing hands towards the series awra aired on to justify their disgusting excuse of a series. i just watched the trailer for "batang poz" and its trailer vs this trailer is totally different. HOW DISGUSTING CAN YOU BE TO JUSTIFY THE SHIT YOU'RE SHOWING? pic.twitter.com/epFs81BLLx

ALTER THE SERIES of Buknoy
Batang Poz is one of the educational movie that shows awareness specifically about HIV/AIDS awareness.
Comparing your series and mentioning other artists show unprofessionalism.
Batang Poz is to educate awareness,
yours is to tolerate desires. pic.twitter.com/Nu6e5GNQGE

Ikinagalit ng ilang netizens ang direktang pagkukumpara ng producer nito ng kanilang BL series sa Mga Batang Poz, ang iWant Original Series na tinampukan ni Awra bilang isa sa mga bida.
Binanggit ng Star Image Digital Network ang pangalan ni Awra bilang depensa dahil sa pagiging menor de edad din ni Awra nang gawin ang ilang maseselang eksena.
Katwiran ng ilan, malaki ang pagkakaiba ng Alter at ng Mga Batang Poz dahil sa pokus ng istorya at adbokasiya ng huli na pagpapalaganap ng awareness o kaalaman tungkol sa HIV at pamumuhay ng mga taong mayroong HIV.
May ilan namang nagtanggol kay Buknoy at nagsabing hindi dapat siya ang tuligsain kundi ang producer ng series, ang management ni Buknoy, ang mga magulang niya, ang direktor, at ang ilan pang adult na may kinalaman sa series.
Okay. Share ko lang kasi I promised the kid to stand by her dahil na-anticipate ko naman reactions ng mga netizens. She called me sunday morning. Di ko sinagot kasi patulog pa lang ako. Tumawag nang tumawag hanggang sa balikan ko siya pagkagising ko. (1/n) pic.twitter.com/pgSZZhsMxz

hello dropping by to say na hindi malaki kasalanan ni buknoy in this situation, grown adults had him do those things and his parents consented to it. siya na ang victim ngayon
ang sasahol ng mga taong pinayagan na mangyari toh. imagine how scarring it is for a 16 year old+

She could have reached out to other people before she accepted the project. She’s worried and that’s good. This is not a hate towards Buknoy. I just want to address my thoughts about it. She’s already 16 but she’s also just 16.

THIS!!! i also thought about it. hindi ako magpapakahipokrita para sabihing wala talaga akong hatred sa kanya in the first place kasi meron naman talaga because of her past issues. and now that she's doing something "wrong" na naman and people started calling her out, doon ko— https://t.co/zb3FjJWMaU
