MANILA – Jessy Mendiola proved to be a good sport after netizens called out her mispronunciation of some words when she hosted the 2014 UAAP Cheerdance Competition with Boom Gonzales last Sunday.
Mendiola and Gonzales were announcing the prizes to be given to the winning teams when the Kapamilya actress pronounced "plaques of appreciation" as "pleyks of appreciation."
She immediately drew flak in various social networking sites with some netizens commenting that Mendiola should have studied her script first before she going on air.
However, Mediola seemed unaffected by the often harsh criticism.
In her personal Instagram account on Monday, the actress posted a picture of a quote saying no one is perfect.
“There is no need to be perfect to inspire others. Let people get inspired by how you deal with your imperfections,” the quote read.
In the caption, Mendiola said: “Good morning. Mahal ko kayo kahit ayaw niyo sakin ‘pleyks’ man.”
As of writing, the post already has garnered over 2,500 “likes” and almost 100 comments.
Some of her followers in the image-sharing site also expressed their support for the actress.
This was the second time Mendiola hosted the UAAP Cheerdance Competition with Gonzales.
