Maine Mendoza cheered, ‘Henyo’ Joey de Leon jeered
If Joey de Leon got netizens fuming, Maine Mendoza had them clapping.
During a segment of the noontime show “Eat Bulaga,” Joey de Leon and other hosts dismissed depression that a barangay resident was suffering from as “just made up” by the person afflicted with it.
Maine butted in and disagreed.
“Hindi biro ang depression. Hindi siya joke. Kasi maraming nakakaranas ng ganun, lalo na sa mga kabataan. Kaya lalo na sa mga nakakaranas ng ganun bigyan nating ng suporta,” said Maine in which Alden Richards agreed.
In which Joey replied: “Hindi, wag nyong suportahan. Gawa-gawa lang nya yun.”
Praises were heaped on Maine for “doing her best to speak up about it.”
Twitterverse was flooded, making Joey de Leon, the second top trending topic on Thursday.
