Nicko Falcis took to social media to extend his gratitude to Gretchen Barretto after the actress recently expressed support for him in his legal battle with Kris Aquino. In an Instagram post on January 5, Gretchen said that she admires Nicko for his courage "to fight for his family name and reputation." The actress also called out to bullies in her post. "Stop power tripping," she wrote.
In response to Gretchen's message, Nicko posted on Monday, January 7, "Thank you, Ms Gretchen Barretto for your post. Her act of posting this message in open support of my family and I, and against the seemingly formidable Aquino machinery, was a brave and bold move she made. We do not know each other so this is such a blessing, along with thousands of well meaning messages of strength and support from random people."
Nicko also expressed his admiration for Gretchen's wit and adored her audacity to go beyond her comfort zone to show support. "I've read her other posts here and there, and seen her YT videos. She is intelligent, refined and articulate but I never thought that she would be capable of going out of her comfort zone to write such a post. Salamat po! No to bullies! No to power tripping!" he said.
Nicko drew the ire of Kris Aquino after he allegedly spent Kris Cojuangco Aquino Productions (KCAP)’s money for his personal transactions. He denied the said allegations.
