Lumilikha ng ingay ang simpleng Instagram post ni Gretchen Barretto noong Martes, August 20.
Ito ay ang larawan nila ng kanyang longtime partner na si Tonyboy Cojuangco, at sa baba nito ay ang may mensahe si Gretchen na: “My tony, aww he loves me.”
Hindi ang mismong larawan at mensaheng ito ang nakapukaw ng pansin ng mga Instagram users kundi ang pakikipagpalitan ng mga salita ni Gretchen sa isang follower niya.
Isang follower na may user name na “@marjoriekabit” ang sinagot ng aktres dahil sa patutsada nito.
Sabi ni @marjoriekabit: “Gosh, nakakahiya kayo. Bkt hnd magwork si marj to support her children.”
Dagdag pa nito: “Get a life.”
Posibleng ang “marj” na tinutukoy ng IG user na ito ay ang nakababatang kapatid ni Gretchen na si Marjorie Barretto.
GRETCHEN FIGHTS BACK. Matapos nito ay sinagot ni Gretchen ang patutsadang ito sa kanya ni @marjoriekabit:
“Does it seem like it matters to me. It does seem like you are so envious that you need to make an account to bash us. Pity you, you keep stalking us.
“It is pure joy to know you are so consumed by our lives keep it going keep stalking we know who you are. Hope you take sometime to rest & take good care of your 2 kids & most of all hope you find time to get the mental help you need. Medical city or perhaps rehab. Peace be with you.”
Sabi pa ni Gretchen: “Why don’t you meet with atty. Topacio?"
Posibleng ang tinutukoy ni Gretchen na "Atty. Topacio" ay si Ferdinand Topacio, ang legal counsel ng bunsong kapatid ni Gretchen na si Claudine Barretto sa mga kaso nito laban sa estranged husband niyang si Raymart Santiago.
Sagot naman dito ni @marjoriekabit: “I will never get envious with your life. I’m contented with my life. I don’t wanna be a mistress just to have a luxurios life.”
Dagdag pa nito, “You and marj are so pathetic.
“Sending Claudia in bsm is a surprise because I know marj doesn’t have enough money for the tuition there knowing that she doesn’t have a stable job. Unless she has a new sugar daddy. If you know what I mean.”
Posible namang ang “Claudia” na tinutukoy ni @marjoriekabit ay isa sa mga anak ni Marjorie.
Sagot ni Gretchen dito: “You are contented with your life? Is this why you are stalking & bashing us you must be high again. You don’t have a luxurious life because you pushed and fought everyone in abs Cbn. Why is it your business where Claudia goes to school unless you are dying in envy. You are playing holy when everyone knows all your politician boyfriends left you the minute they found out about your drug use & mental problem.”
Saad pa ng aktres: “Marjorie has businesses FYI she can afford to send the kids to school.
“You don’t want to be a mistress? The question is… Does anyone at all want to be with you? Your husband has filed for annulment already my dear. Wake up. With that kind of attitude you will have no one.”
Sagot naman ni @marjoriekabit: “Yes she has businesses but where does the capital comes from? It came from you and with the cojuancos. Dominique feels like you already gave too much for Marj’s family. She even called Marj’s family dependent and parasite. So now tell me that I’m lying?
“At least I’m still married. How about you? Are you contented with being called a mistress and Dom being an illegitimate child?”
WHAT TONY HAS DONE FOR ME… Tugon dito ni Gretchen, “Yes I am. Because Tony is with us. He stood by me all through 19 years. (that means something) Dominique means the world to tony & that says it all. You are married only until the annulment is granted. Your husband is not with you. What tony has done for me, no married woman will ever experience.
“Do not put words in to Dominique mouth. I don’t need the money of the Cojuangco. FYI – I have a career, I pay taxes, you don’t.
“You breath Marjorie. You are pathetic. Your anger is overflowing. Peace.
“Why don’t you Instagram about yourself. Tell everyone how you treat the people who you work for you. How many helpers have you put to jail for theft (obviously lies) your made up stories. These what makes you happy? Seeing & knowing people are miserable.”
Buwelta naman ni @marjoriekabit: “FYI, I pay taxes.
“Why are you using Tony’s money to support Marj and her family?”
Tugon dito ni Gretchen, “It is pointless to argue with a mentally ill & drug addict. You go get help, maybe after then ill have the time for you.”
“THIS BASHER TEXTED ME.” Base sa mga sagot ni Gretchen, tila ang tinutukoy at pinatatamaan niya ay ang kanyang bunsong kapatid na si Claudine.
Kaya isang IG follower ni Gretchen ang nagtanong kung bakit daw ina-assume niyang si Claudine ang nangba-bash sa kanya.
Ayon pa kay @allthingitalian: “I am not pro anybody, but I am, like many of your followers, just curious y u assume (obviously, based on ur responses) @marjoriekabit s ur sis that u r @ odds w/. Anybody can just create an account & write nasty things so u will react. I thought u want ur daughter 2 remember that u didn’t fight, but isn’t what u r doing fighting, too, and worst part, u maybe barking @ the wrong tree. Just saying. PEACE.”
Sagot dito ni Gretchen, “I know for sure who the basher is simply because many months ago when we were still in good terms (this basher said all these things to our faces) not only did she tell us these same things but even threatened to expose this. This basher texted me on my family cell phone with the same sentiments. I mention I will not fight but there comes a time when after so much hurt, you just must put a stop to it. I know no one who is so angry at both Marj, her children, me & my daughter at this intensity. This basher is doing exactly what she said she will do. We refuse to take her insults & even hurt our children.”
Dagdag pa niya: “Thank you for asking. It is a valid concern on your part. Let us remind you that both @marjbarretto & I are very busy people. We take good care of our children & keep our home a happy & peaceful one. We too have careers & friends. We want peace & love. But enough is enough when mocking goes beyond limit.”
