Who has ‘main character syndrome’: Donnalyn or your typical Apple user?

It’s all about “me-me-me” nowadays (not the 100 Gecs song) — it’s about people with main character syndrome, but some say that Apple users are just as pompous as Donnalyn. Is that true? We’ll find out.

What do you mean by main character syndrome?

It’s a phenomenon where a person makes any topic or question all about him/her. It is typically found among narcissists or influencers who just can’t get enough of themselves (e.g. Rendon Labador, Kakaibabe) — invalidating other people’s experiences and instead imposing their ‘I-have-experienced-worse-times-so-sit-down’ moments, leading to alienation and looking like a ‘whiney baby’ even though expressing it is valid.

Apple users, apparently

Where does a typical Apple user come in contact with this?

Well, they associate an Apple user with having ‘main character syndrome’ because of alleged instances of looking down on Android users or feeling above anybody else just because they have the latest Apple device. Of course, this is debatable and very broad. While it may be true, not all Apple users are like that– but there’s only one Donnalyn Kakaibabe Bartolome.

being a creative person
Definitely may main character syndromeVERDICTMukha lang may main character syndrome

At least the Apple user has some decency to act like a normal human being with class, as opposed to what Donnalyn is doing right now. She should swallow it (which she did, good job though), improve herself, and next time, try to be an actual good-natured influencer. It’s not too late to cure you of the highly contagious main-character syndrome.
