Maine Mendoza thanks loyal supporters amid boycott call

In an open letter, Maine Mendoza thanked all those who showered her love on her recent birthday.

Yes, including those "boycotting the shows" she's part of.

Maine wrote, "To my family, friends, management, colleagues, and supporters, thank you for making me feel special and loved. Thank you for showering me with love in my good and bad days; for standing by me when others walked away; and for being with me in this journey every step of the way."

"A thousand thank yous may not be enough but I want you all to know how thankful I am for the love, understanding and support you unconditionally give. Thank you very much," she added.

Of course, those who gave her cake this year received a special shout-out as with those who posted "a compilation of edited videos, creating all sorts of fan arts, sending customized cakes, making personal video greetings, boycotting the shows I am part of and sooo much more...."

"Whatever way you choose to show your love and support – be it my birthday or on regular days – know that I am grateful for you. Thank you all so much for everything."

Note that prior, fans of Maine's onscreen partnership with Alden Richards called for a boycott of a "Daddy's Gurl" episode that had Arjo Atayde as guest.

They also called for a boycott of "Eat Bulaga," making viral the hashtag #ADNBoycottEBxDGxCS3.
