Rainyzion also clarified that Pere did not put up the disclaimer because of a video of Mercy on a movie set but for overzealous fans/shippers.
"Since y’all have decided not to leave Pere alone. Imagine shippers sending gifts to Pere with a note like this. Only for Pere to find out it’s not from Mercy, what do you expect him to do? It’s high time he put that disclaimer out there. So all should rest. It’s not about the video on set."
