Nilinaw ng ama ni Nadine Lustre na si Ulysses "Dong" Lustre ang nilalaman ng kanyang Facebook "rant" noong October 9, Miyerkules, na hinihinalang patungkol kay Kathryn Bernardo.
Umani ng matinding pambabatikos mula sa fans ni Kathryn ang cryptic post na ito ng ama ni Nadine:
"I'm Flop and you're High Gross, what are you afraid of. You feel so threatened, you're desperate to break US apart.
"I hope someday you get what you deserve. What comes around, goes around."
Ngayong Biyernes ng umaga, October 11, isang mahabang mensahe ang ibinahagi ni Ulysses sa Facebook upang linawin ang kanyang naunang post at sagutin ang mga bumabatikos sa kanya.
Ayon sa ama ni Nadine, "personal opinion" niya ang kanyang posts, ganun din ang mga komento ng kanyang followers.
Ngunit ang nakalulungkot lang daw ay "people always have the tendency to HATE rather than to UNDERSTAND, thats why we don't have world peace."
Diin pa ni Ulysses, "My posts does not pertain to anybody in particular.
"The word 'I' means ME as the writer, 'US' means the THE TWO OF US and 'YOU' is not a particular person.
"In english 'YOU' is also used to pertain to a GROUP of people."
Ipinaliwanag ni Ulysses ang pagkakagamit niya ng mga salitang "FLOP" at "HIGH GROSS"—na inakala ng netizens ay tumutukoy sa kinahinatnan ng mga pelikula nina Nadine at Kathryn sa takilya.
Ayon sa ama ni Nadine: "The words 'FLOP' and 'HIGH GROSS' pertains to two things in opposite, which I chose to use simply because I'm pertaining to the entertainment biz."
Sinabi rin ni Ulysses na wala nang dapat patunayan ang kanyang anak dahil sa naabot nitong tagumpay sa showbiz.
"And lastly as a father, being an idealist, I'm bothered when people throws rocks to someone who spreads happiness, healing and compassion.
"My daughter doesn't have to prove anything to US anymore. From nobody to somebody.
"Three major awards in a year. Actress, singer, dancer, artist and director. Sold out concerts and multi media endorsements.
"And of course she attained it with the help of a lot of good people including her partner," pagtukoy niya sa loveteam partner at real-life boyfriend ni Nadine na si James Reid.
Patuloy ni Ulysses, "Don't get me wrong AGAIN, I'm not bragging just being proud.
"She has inspired people for who she is in her advocacies and ideas.
"She pulled us and the people that surrounded her up on our knees."
Nagbigay rin ng mensahe ang ama ni Nadine para sa "haters and bashers."
Saad niya, "What's wrong with the haters and bashers, do you hate her because there is competition?
"There is no competition, it's all in your heads.
"The Filipino artists move us one, to promote Philippine shows."
Para naman sa mga tagasuporta nina Nadine at James, mensahe ni Ulysses: "To all the Jadine, Nadine and James fans and supporters all over the world, my overwhelming gratitude goes to you all.
"Thank you for supporting and loving them thru thick and thin. To the extent of quarrelling for them. (Pls. refrain from doing so, as much as you can). Hats off to you."
May babala rin ang ama ni Nadine sa bashers na nag-iwan ng masasakit na salita laban sa kanya sa Facebook.
"And to all the people who trespassed in my domain, leaving foul languages and vexations, your bullying days are over.
"May you be hiding in fake identifications and accounts, your IP address doesn't lie.
"A team of IT's, I hired yesterday is already working to flush you out. Not to mention the lawyers gathering enough evidence.
"Now let's see how cybercrime law works."
Panghuling mensahe niya, "I hope these ends a chapter of hate and misunderstanding.
"Let's all work together for a better social media."
