Claudine Barretto defends self vs AlDub bashers: ‘Nagpapakatotoo lang’

/ 08:49 PM October 29, 2015


Actress Claudine Barretto has defended herself from bashers of the on-screen love team of Alden Richards and Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza after she expressed her admiration for the “AlDub” tandem.

Barretto was criticized by some netizens for posting on Instagram a photo of Richards and Mendoza last Saturday during Eat Bulaga’s “Sa Tamang Panahon” at the Philippine Arena in Bulacan, with the caption “Love u Aldub! #aldubfan.”


Barretto’s bashers argued that she should not be publicly supporting a love team, which is a product of a noontime show airing in ABS-CBN’s rival network GMA-7. The actress recently returned to show business and starred in ABS-CBN projects, such as “Maalaala Mo Kaya” and the Star Cinema film “Etiquette for Mistresses.”

But Barretto said she was just being true to herself in supporting AlDub, noting that even her kids learn a lot from the phenomenal tandem.


“Pasensya na po sa mga ayaw ng AlDub pero kanya kanya po tayo ng hinahangaan. Napapasaya po ng AlDub ang mga anak ko, bilang magulang natutuwa ako na nato-touch na maganda ang natututunan ng mga anak ko sa kanila. Respeto na lang po sa desisyon ng bawat isa… Nagpapakatotoo lang po. Peace,” Barretto said in the comments section of her post.

Barretto apologized to those who were offended by her post, but maintained that a true fan should not be afraid to profess love and admiration for their idols.

“Sa mga hindi fans ng AlDub sorry po kung nasaktan ko po kayo. Pero ang totoong fan ay di dapat matakot na ipaalam at ipaglaban ang mga iniidolo natin. Wala po akong masamang sinasabi tungkol sa iba. Natutuwa lang po ako na pinasasaya nila ang mga anak ko. Wala po akong sinsadyang saktan kahit sino sa inyo. I’m sorry po pero respetuhin po natin ang isa’t isa,” she said.
