WHO would have thought that Pinky Amador’s video showing her ranting against the employees of a condotel where she lives in Makati would also drag the names of actresses Jaclyn Jose and Vivian Velez?
Jaclyn wrote that what Pinky did is “heartless”. Here’s her message to Pinky:
“To Ms. Amador, ‘wag naman po ganun. Paano po ang mga kapatid, asawa, at iba pang lahi ng taong minura niyo? Habang buhay nilang dadalhin ang pang lalait niyo. Media at Instagram lang ang laban nila. Do not persecute ‘yung naglabas ng video kasi nanakot po kayo na saktan niyo. Sila, video lang ang kakampi.
“Frontliners po sila na hindi niyo alam kung paano sila nakarating sa trabaho. Three weeks lockdown ‘di po ba? Kinaladkad mo mga artista kaya wala na nagtitiwala sa atin dahil sa mga katulad mo. Dinadamay niyo kami na may puso sa katulad ng mga tao na ito. Magpasalamat ka na lang at pumapasok pa sila sa kabila ng COVID.
“Alam mo ba ang pinadadaanan nila just to get to work? Maglalakad, nakikipagsapalaran kung ano puwede masakyan. Tapos mumurahin mo mula ulo na parang nabili mo? Ikaw ang gaga! Tanga! Mag-mask ka at mag-gloves ka… or better yet stay in your home!”
Pinky already apologized saying the residents of their building were not notified that it will be used as a quarantine for returning Filipinos.
“That was a cause for alarm not just for me but for all the residents,” she wrote. “As of 04 May 2020, the administration did not send any notice about the incident, issue any safety COVID-19-related protocols, and delayed disseminating any information to residents thus risking everyone’s safety in the building.
“I am not perfect, far from it. Under these stressful times, when pushed to the limit, how far will you go to protect your loved ones? Sa mga nasaktan ko, I am truly sorry, pero ipinaglaban ko lang ang karapatan natin mabuhay ng ligtas sa sakit.”
Vivian Velez defended Pinky, saying she understands Pinky because she was exposed to OFWs who are being monitored if they have the virus infection. Jaclyn responded to Vivian and caller “a piece of shit”.
But later on, Jaclyn relented and wrote to Vivian: "To Ms.Vivian Velez, I am sorry for what I have said in your wall. I know what kind of a person you are, didn’t mean to lambast you. Mali ako. you are a friend, a family friend for that matter. Again, i apologize."
Vivian didn’t accept Jaclyn’s apology. She wrote: "Jaclyn Jose, also an esteemed colleague and a personal friend placed her comment on my post regarding my opinion on the matter.
"My post was open to the public and I welcome discussions and sometimes debate because as mature individuals, that is how matters are handled. Fair discussions. This is not the case on Jaclyn Jose's comment on the matter.
"Coming from nowhere, she decided to hurl defamatory words at me calling me names like "racist", not knowing where it's stemming from and "a piece of shit" which, I and a lot of people know, am not. Her action and reaction on the matter gravely offended me.”
Well, we hope cooler heads will prevail and try to make them all kiss and make up with each other amicably.
