- Maine Mendoza recently received a tweet from a fan regarding her relationship with Jake Ejercito.
- She clarified they are only friends. But Jake received hate, some even included his own little daughter.
- This issue may have prompted Maine Mendoza to write an open letter to her fans.
Last November 26, Maine Mendoza wrote an open letter to her fans on her blog which she also shared on Twitter. There are so many probable issues that could lead to the creation of the said letter. But one of the most recent problems that the dubsmash queen recently faced involves one of her friends, Jake Ejercito.
Jake posted an Instagram story of a faceless girl he was with at a questionable hour of the day. The girl has the same features and the same watch as Maine’s. The photo of the faceless girl may be in black and white but netizens were quick to notice that this may be Maine at Jake’s place at six in the morning.
Then, netizens whipped out their magnifying glass and looked for the similarities of this faceless girl and Maine. They have the same watch, the same tail of eyebrow, the same ears and also, same “well-taken-care-of” nails. Maybe the faceless girl is Maine? But, why does it matter?
A netizen, tweeted Maine, asking her the real score between her and Jake.
“@mainedcm ano ba talaga kayo ni @unoemilio? Ang sakit sakit na kasi”
In which Maine replied, “Huh? We are friends! May mali po ba doon?”
This issue went out of hand that Jake received a lot of hate. Some even involving his little daughter, Ellie. Some of the tweets were posted to protect the dubsmash queen herself. But, also, in the wrong kind of way.
“My first and last re @unoemilio post. I didn’t tweet anything about ds knina coz I have work. But here’s for you nyetang Jake! Stay away frm the shadow of Aldub or Maine! Wala k kc career kaya nakikisawsaw ka sa Aldub! Who are you to post a pic of M in your IG? Feeling BF? You know very well that Maine will be bashed for that! Kung wala kang career find a job! Famewhore!”
Some were not mad at Jake. They were upset neither didn’t confirm nor deny the dating rumors.
“Hindi nmn sa nagagalit kami sau….pero plss lang magsalita ka narin para matapos na ang dami ng pusong nawasak ang hirap mag move on”
Then, some were plain hateful towards him. Even brought up some questionable elements regarding on said issue.
“Ngayon k nkikiusap not ur daughter? Bkit d mo b alam kng ganu karami ang nagddalamhati ngaun dahil sa kagaguhan mo? seniors, ofw, sick people?”
Some were just clueless, “ano pong nangyari?”
Then, some would just come back for more, hateful as ever, also involving a little girl in the process of bashing.
“Hindi ka nag-isip kung anu mgiging consequence ng pnaggawa mo ngaun not ur daughter? Tingnan ko.lang karma is on its way to u or ur daughter.”
This may have prompted Maine to create an open letter to her most loyal fans and fans who hate on people involved with her. The open letter consists of gratefully thanking her supportive and protective fans. But also, calling them out on hurting people involved in her life. She was happy that she didn’t need to pretend just for people to support her.
She posted the letter on her blog then shared it on Twitter with the caption, “I got myself, I will catch myself, and I will pick myself up.”
The first photo attached to the tweet included this paragraph:
“I honestly could not be more thankful for the gift of making people happy by just being myself. I believe that is a rarity here in the world of show business, but I am really thankful God had given me that some kind of knack. Maaaring wala nga akong talento pero masaya ako na nakakapagpasaya ako ng ilang mga tao. That’s more then enough for me.”
Then, the second photo:
“Dumating yung araw na naramdaman ko na para bang hindi na ako masaya. Na kahit sandamakmak ang biyaya ang natatanggap ko, nawala na yung ligaya sa puso ko. Hindi ko na makita yung tuwa sa mga ngiti ko at kinang sa mga mata ko. Hanggang sa napagtanto ko na iyon pala ay dahil sa ilang mga tao na nakapaligid sa akin”
Then, the third:
“I also owe this to everyone who were dragged into this. Our families, friends, and workmates are being bashed and ridiculed by some. Kahit sinong madikit sa amin pinagiisipan at pinagsasalitaan ng hindi maganda. Basta hindi naaayon sa kagustuhan ang mga nakikita, nagagalit. It hurts me seeing them being hurt. It hurts me how some of you are so capable and so proud of throwing so much hate on others– especially on people who care about us.
Family and friends outside the industry are being taken into the wrong context, even if they do not have anything to do with the issues thrown at us. Hiling ko ang ay sana bigyan natin sila ng respeto. Naiintindihan ko na pinoprotektahan niyo lang kami, at nagpapasalamat ako sa lahat ng ginagawa niyong pagtatanggol sa amin, pero sana maintindihan niyo din na hindi kailangan maliitin ang pagkatao ng iba. Hindi niyo sila kailangan tirahin ng masasamang salita, Alam kong karamihan ng pinagdadaanan ko ngayon ay parte ng mundong ginagalawan ko. “
