Kapuso actor Juancho Trivino has issued a public apology to Pambansang Bae Alden Richards, his family, and fans, over a video of him gesturing the finger upon mention of Richards’ name.

The controversial viral video, which lasted for a few seconds, first focused on Richards’ photo. A woman was then heard from the background saying, “Nandito si Alden”; then pointed the camera to Trivino, who then motioned two “dirty fingers” that extremely offended fans of Richards.

The video, which was was uploaded on an Instagram fanpage under the handle @maichard_2416_maria, has this caption: “Para sa mga nag tatanong kung anong issue kay @juanchotrivino ito ang proof sa pangba-bastos mo kay Alden. Kaya ‘wag na ‘wag mo kaming babaliktarin na kami ang nangba-bash sa’yo dahil Ikaw ang unang nang-bastos sa idol naming, fake ugly arrogant, please don’t mention or tag Maine and Alden thanks.”

Consequently, Trivino’s social media accounts were flooded with hate messages from enraged fans of Richards.
