Seth Fedelin came to friend and on-screen partner Andrea Brillantes' aid as comments about the actress started pouring in on social media after she said yes to Ricci Rivero's public girlfriend proposal.
The actor went on an Instagram Live on April 10 to defend his "friend" from bashers, saying netizens are being "unfair" against Brillantes.
"Napaka-unfair dahil wala po kayong alam, unfair po para sa kaibigan ko na makakabasa at makakarinig ng mga salita na wala po tayong karapatan banggitin," Fedelin said.
"Di ko na natiis talaga kasi sobra na po. Nawawalan na tayo ng respeto. Di po deserve ng kaibigan ko na makarinig ng mga ganung salita, pekeng balita," he continued.

On Twitter, users are bringing up the fact that Brillantes created "unnecessary drama" in January when a photo of Fedelin with fellow "Gold Squad" member Francine Diaz and her family surfaced.
As the photo blew up online, Brillantes shared cryptic posts on Instagram and TikTok, which includes one of her lip-syncing to Selena Gomez's Lose You to Love Me. Fans also noticed that the two Kapamilya actresses unfollowed each other on Instagram.
Three months after the drama, Brillantes got together with UP Fighting Maroons basketball player Rivero, which Fedelin said he supports.

"Wala akong galit, ang meron ako ay tuwa dahil deserve ng kaibigan ko na may gumawa ng ganung bagay na ipagsigawan siya sa publiko," he said. "Kaya happy ako, wala akong anything negative na nararamdaman dahil kami po ang nakakaalam ng totoo."
"Ako po mismo, suportado ko silang dalawa," the actor added.
Fedelin and Brillantes were first paired as a love team in ABS-CBN's Kadenang Ginto in 2018. The love team currently stars in Huwag Kang Mangamba, along with other "Gold Squad" actors Francine Diaz and Kyle Echarri, and the musical series Lyric and Beat.
