After an issue involving Kapamilya stars Jessy Mendiola, Luis Manzano and Enrique Gil made headlines, bashers were quick to give nasty comments on Jessy’s Instagram account prompting her mother Didith Garvida came to her defense. She spoke up about the issue on TV5’s Showbiz Konek na Konek today and told that her daughter is affected with the bashing.
“Naguguluhan siya. Nasasaktan siya, she’s sad. Masakit sa kanya yung nangyayari. Malulungkot ako kasi sinasabi niya, 'Mama di naman ako sikat.' Sabi ko 'Jessy you have your own name and they have their own name so it’s okay.
“Di nila ako paniniwalaan kasi di ako sikat katulad nila. Don’t do it to my kid, kasi kahit papaano she really works so hard for where she is right now. Kung sikat man ang anak ko or hindi, she’s still my Jessy and she’s being harassed," she said.
“I always tell her to stay strong, because this is life, you have to fight. You know in life, you have to fight. There are so many out there na mas malakas sa iyo, but hindi naman ibig sabihin na babae ka, hindi ka malakas. Even the whisper of your voice is enough to make you strong if you are right,” Didith further stated.
On Jessy’s Instagram, her mother requested the online bashers to stop sending hate messages or else she might take a legal action regarding the issue.
At the end of the interview, Jessy’s mother gave a message for the actress and said that she will be with her through ups and downs.
“Jessy, on your ups and downs, mahal kita, you know that. I will always fight for you. Even though, I’m so tired with all these things, but I’m here. I am your mother, I wish you the best.And you are my only Jessy.”
Enrique Gil already spoke up about the issue and made a public apology to Jessy and to her boyfriend JM de Guzman.
