The 22-year-old Kapamilya actress, Julia, posted a throwback photo of her young self and Bea which circulates online whilst the controversy.
Here’s the whole post on her Instagram account.
“These past weeks, my faith, my patience, and my strength were put to the test. I have endured many harsh words hurled against me and my family everywhere on social media. It is exhausting and painful. While some might have forgotten, I am also human.”
She also pointed the issues she has been “attacked” for: that she “cheated” on her boyfriend Josh and that she was the “cause of another relationship’s breakup” Bea and Gerald.
“Let’s be clear: Josh and I had broken up four months ago. We have publicly admitted it together and we have cleared that there was no third party involved. From now on, anything I do in my private and love life is not considered as cheating, and is none of anyone’s business.”
“Secondly, I believe Gerald has already made it clear that a third party was not the cause of their breakup. I would like to disassociate myself from the breakup of Bea and Gerald. Their issues are entirely their own. Since I was brought into this mess without a choice, this is what I have to say. Your heartbreak should have been a private matter, but you have selfishly turned it into something of national concern.”
“Bea, you wanted to keep your hands clean by not mentioning me in your controversial post, but with a click of your finger, in your sly way, you have charged everybody to destroy me for you. You have encouraged a culture of hate by purposely liking harmless photos, putting malice into the minds of many, which resulted in the outrage of insults against me. You are a woman of great influence and following. You could have used that power to promote strength and grace in women, but instead, you’ve used that to promote social media irresponsibility. That is downright bullying.”
“You can play the victim all you want, but I refuse to be your victim,”
“This post is not enough to sum up everything I went through. I took the time to step back and take a look at the situation that I am in. It is so hard to be human in this industry but I still have every intention to stay in this business that I love so much. For the longest time, I’ve always dealt with everything in silence, but this time, I’m forced to grow up. I will not be sidetracked, derailed, and be dictated by people’s judgments and opinions about me.”
“This is me getting myself free and getting my soul back.”
This post lit the internet and creeps a wildfire, after weeks of not hearing from Julia she finally speaks about the controversy and according to her she is being “bullied” and Bea Alonzo is responsible for this. Netizens tend to give their two cents regarding the issue regardless of how they choose their words or how will it affect others. It is a reminder to all of us that in stories like this, there is always other side of story for everyone and as people we are entitled to our own opinion and we think that is a greater responsibility.
