Even Kris Aquino thinks people shouldn’t solely criticize Julia Barretto over the alleged cheating scandal with Gerald Anderson.
A netizen commented on one of Kris’ Instagram photos, asking her Erich Gonzales’ opinion on the situtation. (Erich is a good friend of Julia and Gerald, and also one of Kris’ “adopted daughters.”) But the actress wasn’t going to entertain the request and instead talked about respecting Erich, Julia, and Bea Alonzo.
“Ang hindi natin buhay wag na natin guluhin, especially Erich na hindi naman directly involved,” (Let’s not meddle with other people’s lives, especially Erich who’s not directly involved) Kris commented. She added that even though she’s friends with Bea, it’s still unfair to judge Julia.
“Why do we always blame the girl?” Kris said. “And don’t pit them against each other. Even those with no issues.”
The cheating allegations started last week when a photo of Julia Barretto and Gerald Anderson went viral on social media. This came after news that Julia and her on- and off-screen partner, Joshua Garcia, broke up. Netizens theorized that Gerald might be the third party, but JoshLia denied the claims.
But what fueled the controversy were Bea Alonzo’s cryptic posts on Instagram which hinted at Gerald’s infidelity. She was also spotted liking posts related to the rumors. The fandoms went wild from there, mostly accusing Julia and wishing that her career went downhill for what she allegedly did to Joshua.
As of now, the actors haven’t directly spoken up about the issue. Bea told reporters Gerald practically ghosted her, while Joshua said he’s just focusing on his career. Julia has been posting Bible verses, as well as a text conversation with her ex to show they’re in good terms. Meanwhile, Marjorie Barretto plans to take legal action against the netizen who posted the viral photos.
But Kris is right. If the cheating scandal turns out to be true, the woman isn’t the only one to blame, the guy is at fault too. It’s a two-way street, people![Inquirer.net]
