Netizens called out Isabelle Daza over her now-deleted post that showed her and husband Adrien Semblat wearing caps with the words, “vaccinated by Pfizer.”
Isabelle and Adrien received their COVID-19 vaccines in Hong Kong, where they are currently residing.
In Hong Kong, residents can choose between COVID-19 vaccines Sinovac or Pfizer-BioNTech for their jabs.
While the actress’ controversial post has already been deleted, netizens continued to circulate the photo as they discussed how “flexing” the vaccine they received turned into a matter of social status.
A Twitter user said the couple’s move was done in “poor taste” since they are flaunting a vaccine that is not available to their audience on social media.
Others defended Isabelle, explaining that a portion of proceeds from the cap by Solo Club will be donated to causes fighting the COVID-19 outbreak in India.
The 33-year-old received her first dose of the vaccine on May 20.
In the Philippines, most local government units (LGUs) refrain from announcing vaccine brands to avoid mass gatherings.
