MANILA, Philippines - An "open letter" of a talent regarding the alleged maltreatment she suffered from director Cathy Garcia-Molina on the set of the defunct ABS-CBN soap opera "Forevermore" has gone viral.

Last week, Rossellyn Domingo posted a note on her Facebook account detailing her grievances against the director.

According to Domingo, Garcia-Molina humiliated her and her boyfriend Alvin Campomanes while working as talents or "extras" in the Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano-led soap opera.

"Forevermore" ran from October 2014 to May 2015.

"Hindi kasi kaya ng sikmura ko ang pagmumura niyo sa mga ekstra. Sagad sa buto. Napakasakit para sa akin na mura-murahin niyo nang paulit-ulit ang boyfriend ko sa harap ng maraming tao," she said on her Facebook note.

“Nakatatak sa alaala ko ang mga ngisi at tawanan ng mga staff at cameramen niyo kapag nagpapakawala kayo ng mga mura."

The open letter also contains Campomanes's formal complaint which was addressed to Cory Vidanes, ABS-CBN's channel head.

The network is set to issue a statement regarding the issue.

While Garcia-Molina and ABS-CBN have yet to issue the issue, a number of showbiz insiders and industry workers have expressed their opinion on the matter.

Actress Rosanna Roces sides with Garcia-Molina. "Ang Showbiz ay hindi para sa mga Balat Sibuyas," she said in a Facebook post. "Kami man ay nakatikim din nang katakut takot na panlalait at Pagmumura bago kami talagang natuto at naging Magaling."

She added, defending the "Forevermore" director: “Napakahirap maging Direktor…sinubukan kong minsan katuwang ni direk Buboy Neal Tan at di ko na sinubukang muli. Grabe ang stress, Pressure at Pagod. di ko kaya. me mga bagay pala talagang kinakaya ng sariling pag iisip at lakas pero marami ring hindi. di ko na muling binalikan ang pangarap na makapag direk.”

Meanwhile, a report says director Peque Gallaga shared Domingo's open letter on Facebook with an accompanying status that read: "Let the power of social media unearth these pathological bullies. "

Garcia-Molina has a directed a number of TV shows and movies for ABS-CBN, including the 2015 John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo hit "A Second Chance.
