Jairus Aquino did not hold back his thoughts in a now-deleted post.
After posting a photo of himself with his non-showbiz girlfriend Nichole Ramos on his Instagram stories to show his gratitude to everyone who showed their support for his new movie Petmalu, Jairus Aquino lashed out at a basher after receiving an unexpected message criticizing his latest project on the big screen and calling it a "flop."
Defending the film which also stars Marlo Mortel, Diego Loyzaga, Vivoree Esclito, and Karen Reyes among others, the 19-year-old Kapamilya actor responded in a now-deleted post, writing: "Ang importante napakita namin sa pelikula 'yung talento na meron kami—na baka wala ka, at ang trabaho namin na pinaghirapan namin."
Petmalu also stars Charles Kieron, Vitto Marquez, Brian Gazmen, Yayo Aguila, William Martinez, Sue Prado, Richard Quan, Mitoy Yonting, Marissa Sanchez, Ronnie Liang, Dennis Padilla, Irma Idlawan, and Arlene Muhlach.
Directed by Joven Tan, Petmalu opens in cinemas on September 5.
