Claudine Barretto, Gretchen’s sister, has posted a photo on Instagram showing that their father, Mr. Miguel Barretto, is currently sick and is admitted in a hospital. The actress wishes their father well, though it is evident that Miguel Barretto is already old, thin and is really suffering from pain. This has opened an issue that was not talked about for a long time, and that is the relationship of Gretchen to her father and to the Barrettos. It can be remembered that in the year 2013, Gretchen Barretto had a controversial issue with his father and Inday Barretto.
Now, the netizens are backfiring on Gretchen. They accused her of being heartless when it comes to her family, and even made a wrong context about how Gretchen helps other people and wishes them well. As most netizens have said, Gretchen keeps on taking care of other people but fails to even visit or care for her own father. Still, there are some who defends Greta in this issue and uses the “you don’t know everything” card. On the other hand, Claudine Barretto got a lot of positive feedback from the netizens for being a good daughter, and for putting family first.
