MANILA – Actor and Hashtags member Ronnie Alonte denied rumors that he and comedian Vice Ganda are dating.
In an interview at the sidelines of his new endorsement on Thursday, Alonte said he and Vice Ganda are very good friends as he asked his critics to stop putting malice to his closeness with the "It's Showtime" host.
“Napakabait na tao ni Vice, sobrang okay kami. Sa lahat ng mga nakakasalamuha ko na same ni Vice, sobrang okay lahat. Mabait ako sa kanya, mabait kami sa isa’t isa. Wala kaming relasyon. Magkaibigan kami ng buo po,” he said.
The “A Love to Last” actor lamented that people are quick to judge gays even if they do not know them personally.
“Yung mga bashers, [may masabi] lang. Grabe nila i-judge 'yung mga bakla. Grabe nila i-judge 'yung mga bisexual or bading. Once na kasama, jowa kaagad, may something kaagad na iniisip,” he said.
Although he is relatively new in showbiz, Alonte has learned the ropes of dealing with his bashers.
“Nagco-comment ako sa kanila, nila-like ko ang mga posts nila, para alam nila na napapansin ko sila, para malaman nila na hindi ako naaapektuhan sa ginagawa nila. Naisip ko na ganito talaga ang buhay. Pinasok ko ito. Sinimulan ko na, mag-a-adjust na lang ako sa kanila,” he said.
At the end of the day, Alonte said he has his good friends from “It’s Showtime” to thank for always giving him moral support.
