Trigger warning: This is the story behind Twitter trending topic #SuicideIsNotAJokeJobert.

After Nadine Lustre called out Philippine Star columnist Ricky Lo for an article about her alleged breakup with James Reid, radio host Jobert Sucaldito spoke out against Nadine and defended Ricky.

In what seems to be a recording of his radio show, Jobert talked about Nadine’s posts that supposedly confirm the breakup. “May mga labas ang puwet, naka-t-back pa doon sa building. May mga nakalagay pang caption na parang gustong tumalon. Sana tumalon na lang kung ganoon din lang naman pala.”

Nadine’s most recent Instagram photos taken in a building only state “I can't be who you want” and “For good reason, lost all of my love.”

You’ll recall that Nadine said Ricky’s article, where he referenced her depression and her brother’s suicide, was “so low” and denied everything that he wrote. “It’s never okay to use someone’s mental situation or tragic past just to prove a point. Mental illness is a very sensitive matter,” she posted on IG Story.

“You think you know so much [about] me, [but] you can’t even get my last name right. Ano na, 2020 na!" she said in reference to being wrongly identified as Nadine Samonte in the photo caption of the newspaper edition of the article.

Fans have also called out what seems to be Jobert’s lengthy Facebook post about the issue. He claimed that Ricky’s article was well-researched and said that the columnist deserved an apology from Nadine. “Kung nagawa mo ngang bastusin ang isang Ricky Lo, the more na puwede mong gawin to any of us. Tama, ining? Bawas lang ng yabang bago pa mahuli ang lahat. Hindi kami makapapayag na mabastos ng kahit sinong celebrity sa mundong ito ‘pag wala sa katwiran.”
