Pablo, for his part, remembers that they are people who have to continue with their respective careers, so they will not have much time to dwell on the most negative things that can be said about them from social networks.

“I have always thought that a criticism is criticizable. Starting from that principle, what does it matter what they say? Alright. Why does it have to hurt me that you think something about me that is not positive?” Buika reflects. “You also have to put on your skin and laugh if you are criticized. Nor we have a positive opinion of everything and everyone. And for having a non-positive opinion about something I would not like to be crucified. Me to the haters…I don’t feel that such aggressive language is necessary, but it doesn’t offend me.”.
