A photo of Ivy Aguas, Maja Salvador's character on "Wildflower," wearing slippers during her controversial wedding has been circulating around social media in the past weeks. 

The photo brought laughter to many; some even created memes that mock the show, particularly the people in charge of wardrobe. 

But social media got it all wrong, according to Ivy Aguas herself. 

Salvador clarified on "Tonight With Boy Abunda" that the photo was not part of the scenes they aired. It was, in fact, a behind-the-scene promotional material released by ABS-CBN Entertainment. 

"Hindi siya parte po talaga ng eksena. Tuwing rehearsals naman naka-tsinelas kami kasi mapapagod talaga kami. Pero pag-take naman, kailangan talagang nakasapatos," said Salvador, who actually finds the issue hilarious. 

When asked if she is offended by the memes created by netizens, she quipped: "Hindi po. Tawang tawa ako." 

The memes helped them reach sky-high ratings. 

"Wildflower" airs weeknights before "TV Patrol."
