- Janella Salvador was bashed by netizens for not attending the movie premiere of her love team partner Elmo Magalona
- Elmo said in an interview that Janella was absent because she was busy
- The actress then penned an open letter, saying that Elmo was wrong with his explanation of her absence
Janella Salvador took to social media to break her silence over the backlash she received after Elmo Magalona said in an interview that she was not able to attend his movie premiere because she was busy.
KAMI learned that the actress refuted Elmo’s comment that she was busy during that night and said that she and her love team partner agreed that she would watch the movie in private.
“I cannot tolerate getting all the backlash because of someone’s wrong choice of words for the benefit of the movie.
"I know that he did not want to disappoint our supporters but it was at my expense.
“I was not ‘busy’ during the premiere night. I informed Elmo in advance that I would prefer to watch the movie in private and he agreed.
“He understood so that may be the reason why he did not invite me anymore. He probably just doesn’t know how to word things properly sometimes under pressure. Lesson learned, I hope.
“Again, I’m sorry. I’m sure you all know that I would always choose to defend Elmo (even he knows that) but I guess I have no one to do the same for me but myself,” Janella wrote, as quoted by ABS-CBN News and PEP.ph.
Janella has also been bashed before by fans of Elmo when she teamed up with Jameson Blake for a movie.
She has also been criticized by some for her alleged feud with her mom, Janine Desiderio.
Before posting her open letter on Instagram, she purportedly deactivated her Twitter account due to the bashers.
