MANILA, Philippines — In response to “Eat Bulaga!” TV host Joey de Leon’s alleged “insensitive” remark on depression, singer-actress and “Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7” housemate Kisses Delavin of the rival channel ABS-CBN expressed her opinion on depression in her Twitter account.

In a series of tweets posted on Thursday, Kisses backed De Leon’s co-hosts, Maine Mendoza and Alden Richards, that De Leon could be wrong about his beliefs on depression and depressed people.

In the first post, Kisses said: “Sad to think that depression is being considered a joke. It's unfair. It's just not right. Let's do ourselves a favor, be a little kinder.”

In the next post, she stated: “And understand that we don’t know what a person goes thru unless we walk a mile in their shoes. Some people don’t have it as easy as it seems.”

She then explained: “Some people struggle with their baggages unlike others. It doesn't mean they're weak. & it doesn't make them any lesser than the rest.”

Finally, in her latest tweet, she said: “Some depressed people even have more compassion in them, they don't judge other people, because they know how hard the others feel.”

Also on Thursday, De Leon drew criticisms from netizens after he told a game show contestant that depression is just made up by people.

Mendoza, meanwhile, said that depression should be taken seriously. Her love team partner, Alden Richards, agreed with her.
