Maine Mendoza expressed her hopes that people will not make any judgments based solely on what they read on social media.
This is what the actress wrote in reply to a netizen who asked why Maine appears to tolerate the alleged wrongdoing of her boyfriend, Arjo Atayde.
Production company ni Arjo Atayde, inako ang naging desisyon na dalhin agad ang aktor sa ospital sa Maynila
“Ayaw kong maniwala na kaya mong itolerate ang mali, na mas pabor sayo ang ginawa ni atayde kesa sa safety ng maraming tao. Hindi isang Maine Mendoza yun,” a netizen wrote on Maine’s post.
The actress, upon seeing the comment immediately issued a reply, saying she is not “tolerating” her beau.

“Hello! I am not "tolerating" him but there's just so much you do not know about the story,” Maine wrote in reply.
She also expressed her hopes that Arjo would get the chance to air his side and also that people would not base their judgments based solely on what they see online.
“And I hope he gets the chance to tell his side and the context of what had happened these past few days. I also hope you do not base your judgments solely on what you see online,” the actress further wrote.
She then indicated to the netizen that there are many things people don’t know, which is why it is better to see all angles of the story.
“…You might just be seeing an angle of the real scenario,” Maine said.
Earlier, it was reported that the actor was rushed back to Manila, without anyone informing the Baguio City LGU, as he had a high fever and suffering from headaches, as well as having breathing difficulties.
It was also revealed that Arjo turned up positive for COVID-19.
There were also reports that some members of the film production team would often go home and then come back to Baguio without passing through the LGU triage.
This alarmed city government officials and prompted Mayor Benjamin Magalong to order an investigation into the matter.
Nicomaine Dei Capili Mendoza, more popularly known as Maine Mendoza, is a Pinay actress, model, and TV personality. She was born on March 3, 1995 to Teodoro and Mary Ann Mendoza in Santa Maria, Bulacan, Philippines. Maine comes from an affluent family with her father, an engineer by profession, having his own construction business while her mother, an accountant, owns several gas stations in the province of Bulacan. The actress has two other brothers and two sisters, each of them with names starting in “Nico.” Maine rose to prominence after her Dubsmash videos went viral, which helped her land a role as Yaya Dub in the country’s longest-running noontime show, Eat Bulaga! She eventually landed roles in various movie and TV series, with one of them helping her win as Best Supporting Actress during the 41st Metro Manila Film Festival.
Several months ago, Maine found the need to issue an apology because of a tweet she posted years ago. The actress said it was her careless self talking and that she didn’t mean to offend anyone. She also expressed hope that people who were offended by her tweets would hear her out this time. One of the offending tweets that she unleash was directed at the S*xbomb girls.
The actress found an ally in fellow Kapuso star, Ciara Sotto, who penned a tweet defending Maine from her detractors. This is after Maine issued an apology after receiving messages about the offensive tweets she made several years ago. According to the “Daddy’s Gurl” actress, she was very careless back then but she learned to be more cautious with her words after years. Some netizens, however, still condemn Maine which prompted Ciara to defend the phenomenal star.
