His IG stories caption read: “Nakita niyo na ba ang bagong surpresa ng Jollibee?”
It’s quite noticeable how he’s solo in the ad, which he once shared with his former on and off-screen partner Julia Barretto.
The two, known as the JoshLia tandem, joined the Jollibee family back in 2017. And ever since then, they were always being featured in the fastfood’s ad together looking all lovey-dovey.
In the video ad clip that Joshua shared, he appeared looking for something or someone inside the Jollibee store. But while fans might expect he’d be meet by Julia inside, nothing of that sort happened.
Instead, Joshua, all by himself, enjoyed the burger while the song “Hanggang Kailan” by Orange and Lemon played in the background.
Julia was accused of being the third party in the break up of Bea and Gerald after a photo of her with Gerald went viral last July.
It was then followed by Bea’s cryptic message on her IG account seemingly hinting an infidelity in her relationship.
Ever since then, Julia received wide criticism from the public resulting to the actress allegedly losing a couple of endorsements.
Meanwhile, the JoshLia couple broke up, according to Julia, April this year.
Amidst the controversy, one Twitter account owner named @dakilangduca, claimed that a particular eyewear brand was allegedly forced to remove Joshua and Julia’s promotion photo on their social media accounts because the company has been receiving bashings from the public.
The Twitter user said: “So our client asked to remove #JoshLia photo in the promo artwork because people keeps coming to Julia’s endorsements IG accounts and bashing her there. Oh noes.”
In a follow up tweet, he wrote: “#JoshLia fans, sorry had to delete that (photo artwork).”
Many are aware that the former JoshLia couple were endorsing several brands together that include coffee, apparel, and smart phone, and communication services.
