Jessy asks netizens 'Bakit kapag meron tayong gustong purihin, meron tayong lalaitin?'
After being proclaimed as this year’s ‘sexiest woman’ by FHM Philippines, Jessy Mendiola has been the subject of scrutiny by netizens. When she also admitted that she is dating Luis Manzano, they began comparing her to his ex-girlfriend Angel Locsin.
A certain @baby__athena on Instagram left a comment on Angel’s Instagram account and said, ““Feeling sexy mas sexy pa si Jessy sa yo Best Actress pa, si Jessy number one sikat worldwide, eh ikaw haha.” Angel’s brief reply was “Ayos” and a thumbs up emoticon.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Jessy also reacted and said, “Hindi ko naman po kasi kilala 'yun. Sana huwag na lang ganun. Bakit kaya kailangan ganun? Kapag meron tayong gustong purihin, meron tayong lalaitin? Bakit hindi na lang natin purihin ng walang lait?”
She also understood why Angel had to comment.
“Of course, mao-offend siya doon. Sino ang hindi masasaktan sa ganun? Magre-reply siya ng ganun. Like me na nao-offend din ako sa ibang mga comments pero mas pinipili ko na lang na hindi pumatol kasi mas lalo lang sila sasagot at matutuwa,” she said.
She also requested for netizens to stop pitting people against each other.
“Huwag na lang tayo manakit ng iba para lang ma-uplift 'yung isa. Sana ganun na lang tayo lagi. I think the world will be a better place kung ganun.”
And to those who are still comparing her and Angel, she said, “There is silence but there is no war.”
