Luis Manzano spoke up on the issue surrounding his friend, actor John Lloyd Cruz regarding his viral videos.
John Lloyd was recorded, apparently intoxicated, in a series of videos uploaded to Instagram Stories by a friend, while he and actress Ellen Adarna vacationed with a group of friends in Bantayan Island, Cebu.
In some of the videos, he was seen dancing near a gas stove, singing karaoke, flashing the middle finger, and at one point, playing with a knife.
On the show Tonight With Boy Abunda, Luis said:
“Base naman sa nakita ‘kong video, wala naman siyang inaagrabyado, ‘kung saka-sakali man , it would be better kung sakali na hindi na lang nakita ng tao. If I’m not mistaken, si Lloydie ay nag-apologize din. Siguro because he believes a lot of kids look up to him din naman. He believes, to some degree he may have set a bad example. But at the end of the day walang siyang sinaktang tao, kung titignan mo ‘yung video, he was simply having fun. It doesn’t define who he really is.”
Luis, however, believes that the videos should have remained private.
“If you want to have fun, do it on your own. Your moments are your moments. While some believe that they really care kung ano ba talaga nangyayari, I’m guessing a good majority are just looking for the next issue to pounce on.”
