Maine Mendoza has spoken against a netizen who suggested that she was tolerating boyfriend Arjo Atayde, after he allegedly breached the safety protocols while filming in Baguio.
In a tweet, Maine replied to the netizen explaining that she is not "tolerating" her boyfriend, and that people only know one side of the story.
"Hello! I am not 'tolerating' him but there’s just so much you do not know about the story. And I hope he gets the chance to tell his side and the context of what had happened these past few days," she said.
The actress also hopes people would refrain from judging the actor based on what they only see on social media.
She continued, "I also hope you do not base your judgments solely on what you see online because you might just be seeing an angle of the real scenario."
The response was in reference to the recent news that Arjo tested positive for COVID-19 while filming his upcoming movie in Baguio.

He is currently being treated in a hospital in Manila, according to Feelmaking Productions, while the nine other members of the crew, who are also positive for the virus, are currently in quarantine.
However, an investigation ordered by Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong found out that there were breaches of protocols among the film crew throughout their shoot for the past month.
According to the city’s Public Information Office, “The group was given a permit to stay and conduct its shooting activity since last month with the commitment that they will be staying in a bubble – meaning no one should be going in and out of the city during the duration of the shooting.”
“However, we found out that there were instances where crew members go home and come back to the city without passing through our triage so they are not tested."
Mayor Benjamin has now ordered to halt all filming activities in Baguio due to the incident.
