Backlash Over a Dated Video
Some followers criticized Pilar Montenegro for sharing an old video instead of showing her current appearance, especially since she turned 51 on May 31.
“How sad to live on past glories, but anyway,” one comment read.
“What year is that video from? Hopefully, one day she will return to television. Meanwhile, I hope she is in very good health. Her fans will never forget her,” another comment stated.
Pilar Montenegro’s Health Statement
In July 2022, Pilar clarified the rumors about her health through her Instagram account. On the occasion of her birthday, she said, “I hadn’t shared this video of my birthday with you. I am very grateful and blessed with all the people around me, friends who are like family. I love them. Let’s go… today I feel better than ever. Thank you all for your messages, etc. But I’m not in a wheelchair, and thank God I’m still young enough to run or jog! Ha ha ha. To have a great time on a delicious vacation,” she shared.
In addition, Pilar Montenegro showed her support for Monica Dosetti, who had been mistreated by her brother when he was in a wheelchair. She mentioned, “Today when I saw that video, which is circulating everywhere, it broke my heart to see a dear old friend suffer and be abused like this. It’s frustrating and heartbreaking. I want you to know, my dear Mony, that you are not alone. Raise your voice. I send you a hug full of love,” she expressed.
