Is this viral video of Gladys Reyes slapping students real?

Kapuso actress Gladys Reyes, who is known for her antagonist roles on television, caught the attention of netizens after videos of her “slapping” students went viral online.

Reyes did not slap the students as a form of assault though. It was the students who actually came up to her and asked if they can have the “honor” of being slapped by one of the country’s most seasoned kontrabidas.

The 41-year-old actress had an acting workshop at De La Salle University in Taft Avenue on February 7, and Reyes said that she felt happy that she was able to share her knowledge in acting with the students.

“Biglang may nagbukas sa akin na opportunity nang mag-DM [Direct Message] sa akin ang DLSU, mga college student [ang tuturuan].

“Hindi lang Mass Communication students, may accounting students, iba-iba sila. They wanted to invite me to conduct an acting workshop para sa Basic TV and Movie Acting.

“Ang sabi ko, ‘yang workshop, intimate yan. Sabi nila, yung mga hands on sana, mga sixty. Ang dami! Sabi ko teka lang, but I found a way. Nag-grouping ako,” Reyes said in an interview with PEP.ph.

She added: “Parang mga second year college sila, yung iba, 3rd year college students. Ang nakakatawa, ang goal nila for that day, magpasampal sa akin!”

Reyes said that many students came up to her for a slap on the face, one of them is Senior High School student Alex Martinez.

Martinez posted a video on Twitter wherein he told Reyes, “Ano po so idol ka po ng nanay ko ‘no, hi po! Pwede pong pasampal?”

Reyes was evidently shocked with the student’s request but did it anyway. After Reyes’ hand landed on Martinez’s face, one of his schoolmate can be heard in the background saying, “Ako rin po, gusto ko rin po masampal.”

“Si Gladys Reyes ang unang babae na sumampal sa akin and I’m honored,” the student captioned his Twitter post.

Another student also bragged that he was the first one to get slapped by Reyes.
