Fans of love teams can be possessive at times. It was not a surprise therefore that comedian Archie Alemania was criticized by fans of the love team of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza (AlDub) for teasing Juancho Trivino to the actress.

Alemania poked fun at Trivino and Mendoza’s friendship in a series of deleted Instagram Stories last Friday, Sept. 28. While he and Trivino were with their co-stars in the series “Inday Will Always Love You”, the comedian teased Trivino relentlessly, going as far as to congratulate him on a supposedly “smooth-sailing relationship” between him and Mendoza.


Juancho, question. Question lang, sagutin mo naman! Mahal mo ba si Maine? (It’s only a question, answer it! Do you love Maine?)” Alemania asked Trivino in the post. A man’s voice in the background said, “Quinto, Quinto ah.” Alemania then laughingly quipped, “Ruffa Maine Quinto.”

The comedian did not stop there, however. He taunted Trivino to give him products endorsed by Mendoza.


“Juancho! Bigyan mo naman ako ng ano… MAC naman diyan. Alam ko libre ka na ngayon sa MAC,” he told Trivino. The actor replied, “Archie wala akong ganun.”

(Juancho! Give me MAC. I know you can get MAC for free. ) (Archie, I don’t have that.)

“McDo din (as well)! McDo!” suggested another voice in the background. Alemania continued, “Hindi, si Maine kasi, ano di ba ng MAC yun? So puwede kang mamigay ng ano, makeup (No, Maine is, isn’t she a [MAC model]? So you can give away makeup).”

“Happy ako sa ’yo, Juancho (I am happy for you Juancho),” noted Alemania in a separate post. Trivino readily thanked Alemania.

“Na okay kayo ni Maine (That you and Maine are okay),” the comedian suddenly remarked. Trivino, who appeared to have been embarrassed by the teasing he got from his co-star, covered his face with his hands.

“Maganda yung pinagsasamahan niyo ngayon,” added Alemania. “At least smooth sailing ‘yung relationship niyo.”

(Your relationship with each other is good. At least, your relationship is smooth-sailing.)


Alemania’s Instagram Stories did not sit well with AlDub fans. His videos, which he had apparently taken down as per his talent manager’s request, were re-uploaded by some fans.

AlDub fans called him and Trivino out for supposedly using Mendoza’s popularity and making fun of the actress.

Trivino was specifically targeted by fans who questioned the authenticity of his friendship with Mendoza, if he can allow her to be the subject of such jokes.

Some fans, however, pointed out that there was nothing wrong with the videos. They also asked Mendoza to speak up about the real score between her and Trivino to clear his name.

In response to the bashing he received, Alemania hit back at his critics by posting videos of himself on Instagram Stories yesterday, Sept. 29, saying it was not Trivino’s fault he revealed the actor was happy with his unnamed friend. He purposely cut off the videos on the parts where he is about to disclose the identity of Trivino’s friend. In the end, he revealed that he was talking about Trivino’s and “Pepito Manaloto” star Mikoy Morales’ friendship.

Trivino and Mendoza have yet to comment or issue a statement on the matter, as of this writing. JB
