MANILA — Fans of Julia Barretto have had enough of the supposed mudslinging against the actress, with the hashtag #LeaveJuliaBarrettoAlone trending on social media on Tuesday amid the buzz surrounding the breakup of her contemporaries James Reid and Nadine Lustre.
Barretto’s name yet again came up as critics drew a connection between the separation of JaDine, and the 2019 controversy involving the actress and her fellow Star Magic artists Bea Alonzo and Gerald Anderson.
Tweets that used the hashtag #LeaveJuliaBarrettoAlone called out those who kept bringing up Barretto’s name, despite having zero involvement in this latest showbiz tumult.
Some detractors went as far as dredging up Barretto’s romantic past with Reid, and her apparent friendship with a model who is now being linked to the breakup of Reid and Lustre.
Barretto, 22, has been the persistent subject of headlines in recent months, initially over her ties with Anderson and Alonzo, and then the feud within her showbiz clan. More recently, her move to unfollow on Instagram her ex-boyfriend Joshua Garcia and his current onscreen partner Janella Salvador drew similar attention.
The hashtag expressing support for the actress were used in tweets urging respect for Barretto, who, they said, has had to fend off a deluge of accusations that may be starting to take a toll on her, mentally and emotionally.
Here are some of those tweets:
