Janine Gutierrez received support from her colleagues in showbusiness and other known personalities after she received criticisms from talent manager Lolit Solis after she made a comment over the television comeback of Senator Bong Revilla Jr.
Gutierrez raised the eyebrows of Solis after she made a short comment about Revilla’s return to showbusiness.
“Oh God,” Gutierrez said.
“Di ko kaya besh,” she told her follower.

Another artist Juan Miguel Severo also expressed his admiration to Gutierrez and urged the netizens to support her.
“Hi @janinegutierrez. Thanks for speaking truth to power. Mas gumanda ka, mga 200%. And guys I wish you’d give her some love. Celebs and high profile individuals are dissuaded to get political. Those who do so despite need to know we got their back,” he said.

Meanwhile, Solis in another Instagram post said that artists should be careful if they’re going to criticize their colleagues in showbusiness.
The talent manager also said that she’s now respecting the opinion of Gutierrez, explaining that she’s only trying to protect Revilla like a mother who wanted to shield her child from criticisms.
“Puwede sila magalit sa writer, magsalita, pero pag kapwa nila artista dapat maingat sila. Iyon bang kapwa ko artista ito, kapatid ko ito, dapat tulungan kami, dapat kampi kami. Kung mali ako dun, sorry. As I want people to respect my opinion, I will also respect theirs,” Solis said.
“At tulad ni Lotlot de Leon na nasaktan dahil sa anak niya na si Janine Gutierrez, para din akong isang ina kay Bong Revilla na nasaktan din. But now, at least I know na never matatanggap ni Janine Gutierrez si Bong Revilla. I respect that, I admire her for being open with her feelings. Sorry Lotlot. Case closed,” she added.
