“Is public sympathy really more important to you than your own children? Your words have the power to destroy your children.”
Ito ang naging tanong ng anak na lalaki ni Dennis Padilla kay Marjorie na si Leon Barretto.
Matatandaang nag-viral ang Instagram post ni Dennis matapos nitong ipaalala sa mga anak na nalimutan nila siyang batiin noong Father’s Day.
Dennis Padilla, may hinanakit sa mga anak na ‘dinedma’ siya noong Father’s Day
Julia Barretto, binatikos ng ilang netizens matapos mag-viral ang post ng amang si Dennis Padilla
Sa sariling Instagram post ay nagbahagi ng isang madamdaming mensahe si Leon para sa ama.
Minabuti niya umanong sa social media na rin idaan ang kaniyang mensahe dahil tila ito naman ang gusto ng ama.
“I’ve been contemplating whether I should write this to you and if this is even the best way to do so. But it seems that social media is your preferred way to reach us so maybe I can try it too.”

Nanghingi rin siya ng paumanhin sa ama na hindi niya ito nabati noong Father’s Day.
“Sorry if I wasn’t able to greet you a ‘Happy Father’s Day.’ It’s always been an awkward day for us cause we never seem to know where we stand with you every year.
“I’ve always envied people who never even have to think twice about greeting their dads a ‘Happy Father’s Day.’”
Dito rin siya naglabas ng hinanakit na palagi silang naba-bash ng mga kapatid na sina Julia at Dani dahil sa mga public posts ng ama.
“For the past 10 years, we have been trying so hard to slowly rebuild the bridge you continuously burn every time you talk about our private matters in your press cons, interviews, and social media.
“Papa, why does it seem like you enjoy hurting your kids in public? Why do you keep posting cryptic posts about us and allow people to bash us on your own Instagram page?
“Do you think it does not pain all of us not to feel protected by their own father? It’s not that we don’t to talk to you, but the few times that we do to resolve the issues, you communicate by shouting, cursing, and using hurtful words that traumatize us.”

“Is public sympathy really more important to you than your own children? Your words have the power to destroy your children.
“For years I have watched my sisters get torn into pieces because of your false narratives and not once did they ever explain their side nor speak negatively about you in public. It’s exhausting, papa. And as the only man in the family, this is me stepping up to protect my sisters.
“I need you to know that I want nothing else but to move forward in the safest and healthiest manner possible. I want peace, papa. Can you please stop resorting to public shaming when things don’t go your way?
“I long for the day when I can greet you a ‘Happy Father’s Day’ and know that it comes from a place of gratitude.”
