"You are not defined by your past mistakes."

These were the words of Ciara Sotto for Maine Mendoza after the latter's decade-old tweets resurfaced online recently. 

Maine's old tweets, which now have been deleted, contained the word "bading" which was used as an insult. Netizens dubbed it as homophobic.


On her Twitter page, Ciara posted, "Whatever you’ve been through doesn’t have to be the end of you. You are valuable and irreplaceable. And I love you!!! @mainedcm."

Ciara also stressed that no one is perfect and that we are all humans that make mistakes. 

"All of us have made mistakes in the past that we regret, especially when we were younger... Being a celebrity doesn’t mean we are not allowed to make those mistakes... we are human just like you. STOP THE HATE. BE KIND... TO OTHERS... and TO YOURSELF," she said.

Following the resurfacing of her old tweets, Maine posted an apology on her Twitter on Friday, April 16.

She said, "Hi tweeps! I’ve been receiving a lot of messages about my tweets several years ago. Sending my sincerest apologies to those whom I have offended with my tweets way back then. It was my careless self talking and I didn’t mean to offend anyone. I am sincerely sorry."

She added, "Through the years, I have learned to be more careful with my thoughts and words – and how it would affect the people around me. Hope you hear me out this time. Praying for everyone’s safety and sanity in these trying times."
