Lou does not deserve to be called malandi, pokpok, or any degrading terms. NO girl deserved to be slut shamed. You calling her names does not make you any better than her. #Pbb8TheKiss pic.twitter.com/RG2Zi0fqgQ

My stand on LouDre— Nerfy 😏 (@neerrffss) March 4, 2019
1. Both single, adults and like each other.
2. Both were drunk and were out of control.
3. Both liked it, so why not.
Bad thing is
1. Housemates were uncomfty and concerned.
2. It's shown on national TV.
I'm shookt but who am I to judge?#Pbb8thekiss
Hanie: If it's okay with andrei and it's okay with lou, I'm fine with that.— K C 🎭 (@aphroditex028) March 4, 2019
Let's all be hanie!!!✊#PBB8TheKiss
See!!! Mali! They are making things uncomfortable for the other housemates. Don't be a blind follower defending them. We are judging the act not the people! For goodness sake! #PBB8TheKiss— Aliyah 🦄 (@alleymalty) March 4, 2019
Years from now I can imagine Lou and Andre sitting by the beach laughing together remembering tonight's PBB episode while their lil Loulou and lil Dorè are busy building sand castles. This is gonna be just an epic yet wonderful memory for them in the future. 💛#PBB8TheKiss pic.twitter.com/t2vLdGJ4Zd— DorèLoulou 🌼💛 (@_loudrestan) March 4, 2019
Ang tingin nila (ng fans) sa criticisms, bashing. Accept the truth ppl, what they did was wrong. #PBB8TheKiss— x (@graesh_) March 4, 2019
i just cried.— Queen Lourdes (@jowainmoq) March 4, 2019
in one way or another we all aspire to find that person na “pipiliin tayo” matapos lahat ng sakit.
Kudos to this girl. She’ll learn from this. She’s been through a lot. And as fans all we want is to see her happy. If it’s with Andre then so be it. #PBB8TheKiss pic.twitter.com/43S73tkH8q

Maybe they should stop. Its getting out of control. I don’t think Lou’s parents will be okay with it. Just a thought. #PBB8TheKiss— alexkki (@Alexkki18) March 4, 2019
Lou and Andre, who locked lips a couple of times after getting drunk over a few bottles of booze during a swimming party which Big Brother threw for them, got their fellow housemates feeling uncomfortable, resulting in a discussion between Mary Grace, Yamyam, and Fumiya. More importantly, the situation had the housemates feeling worried over Lou and Andre.
"Kailangan ko silang pigilan kasi ayoko silang hayaan lang silang ganun," Mary Grace told Big Brother.
Feeling bothered over what seemed to be an uncontrollable situation, Mary Grace went out of her way to stop the two and plunged into the pool.
"Kami ni Fumiya at Ate Grace, kami 'yung naka-observe na medyo nagiging touching na sa isa't-isa. Sa iba siguro okay lang pero sa akin po talaga Kuya hindi po ako kumportable na makita 'yung silang ganun," Yamyam told Big Brother at the confession room.
Weighing in on the matter at the garden area, Mark, JC, Yamyam, Fumiya, and Mary Grace all agreed that what the Andre and Lou have done was inappropriate, especially considering that they are not the only ones inside the house.
At one point, Fumiya Sankai, who hails from Japan, said to his fellow housemates: “In Japan, like this [hug] is already rude in public... It's okay in the Philippines I thought but since your reactions are like this.”
“Ako nahihiya maski wala ako ginawa. Parang ako kasi ate nila," Mary Grace added.
So the following day, Fumiya and Yamyam decided to talk things over with Andre and Lou respectively.
Concerned for Lou, Yamyam said told her: “Ayaw kong nakikita kang nasasaktan, maski siya kasi close mo siya.”
Meanwhile, Fumiya told Andre: “If you feel offended I’m sorry...but we are family.. but you had too much drink and you cannot control anymore."
Then, Lou and Andre apologized to each other. Moreso, they admitted to Big Brother that they were wrong.
"I just want to say I am sorry about last night 'cause I way drink too much," Andre said as Big Brother gave him advice.
“I care about all my housemates pero bawat action ay may consequence. Walang problema magkasiyahan but be careful,” Big Brother told Andre.
Explaining to Big Brother what she feels about Andre, Lou stated: "Wala pa po akong name-meet na - nakikita ko po 'yung Dad ko sa kanya. 'Yung feeling na someone really cares for you aside from family and friends."
It was in the February 12 episode of Pinoy Big Brother when Andre and Lou admitted their feelings for each other.
