“Personally, hindi ko talaga sila (SB19) kilala. I mean, hindi ko alam ba. I’m really sorry,” Rondina said.

Rondina’s remark did not sit well with SB19 supporters including a fan base called A’tin, which went on a social media tirade against the volleyball star.

“Kaya sa lahat po ng na-offend ko, sorry po. Sorry po talaga. Inaatake na po ako ng mga SB19 fans kaya sorry po. Hindi ko po intensyon yun.”

The volleyball community defended Rondina after receiving hateful comments from SB19 supporters.

Two of SB19’s members, Stell and Pablo also urged their fans to stop the hate toward Rondina.
