Legit at hindi fake news ang pagtatanggol na ginawa ni Janella Salvador sa kanyang ina na si Jenine Desiderio, na walang kamalay-malay sa ginawa ng anak niya.
Ang lumabas na depensa ni Janella ang sagot nito sa isang fan na nagtanong at nag-post sa social media tungkol sa recent controversy na kinasangkutan nila ni Elmo Magalona, ang diumano’y pananakit sa kanya ng estranged boyfriend niya.
Deleted na ang mga sagot ni Janella pero may mga nakapag-screenshot ng kanyang lengthy reply:
"Good day. Here’s something to think about: do you really think we would be spreading lies without actual proof?
"What will we get out of that? Do you think my mother would react the way she did if it’s all coming from nowhere?
"I may not agree with the way she posts everything but at least, she isn’t a mom/manager who only cares about her image and PR and resorts to “ damage control” instead of owning up to their mistakes.
"Decent, clear-minded people would notice how fake a person is if he /she acts nice to you infront of everyone and says horrible things behind your back.
"That itself says a lot about a person. The mere fact that I have not been speaking up about it says a lot.
"I NEVER FAILED to protect Elmo WHEN HE IS BEING ACCUSED WRONGLY so please stop assuming if none of you know anything, because you are all only making the situation worse.
"That’s all I have to say. God bless you."
Hindi natapos sa "God bless you" ang litanya ni Janella dahil may pahabol siyang pahayag.
"Oh and 'only Elmo is being true to you' is a very ignorant statement.
"You don’t know what these people do and how they have helped me. You do not know their hearts, including Elmo’s.
"So again, I am kindly asking you all to stop assuming because it IS very biased. Thank you.
"One more thing: the reason why I am so confident about what I am saying is because I am 100% sure that I am only stating facts and I am not afraid to get quoted.Silence most of the time means guilt- it’s psychology."
