- Alden Richards reacted on said video.
In an interview with PEP.ph, Alden Richards reacted on a viral video regarding Juancho Trivino who gave a middle finger to the Pambansang Bae’s poster.
Alden then reacted to the said video.
On Juancho’s statement, he didn’t intend the joke for Alden. He expressed his apology to Alden and his family. He added an apology to his own family on the said incident.
Juancho declared that he will be more mindful of his actions.
“I sincerely apologize for my actions in the video that has been circulating recently. It was a bad joke not intended for Alden. Humihingi ako ng pasensya kay Alden for drawing him into this, and sa kanyang pamilya na nagkaroon ng ganitong issue. I also would like to say sorry to the people supporting me, to my fans who were disappointed with my actions, to my family who does not have anything to do with this incident. There is no excuse for what I did, and again, I sincerely apologize. Having said all of these, you can expect a better Juancho and I will be more mindful of these things.”
Juancho is friends with Destined to be Yours stars Maine Mendoza and Sheena Halili. Maine remains an onscreen partner to Alden.
Although, they haven’t had a project after the said drama series. The one who took the video actually called a name which refers to Nico Arciaga. Juancho may also be giving the middle finger to the one who held the phone not Alden’s poster.
However, many believed otherwise.
In the said interview with Alden, he was shocked on what the video showed.
However, the shock quickly died down as he had felt like he shouldn’t make it a big deal. He also understands that the issue will die down soon.
“Nagulat po ako, siyempre nakita ko po ang video. Parang, ‘Bakit mo ginanun?’ Pero later on naman po, parang… Hindi po kasi ako mahilig magpalaki ng mga bagay na hindi naman kailangan palakihin at hindi kailangan pagtaniman ng sama ng loob. Parang when I saw it, siyempre, ‘Bakit ganun?’ Pero all of a sudden, nawala rin naman po. Kumbaga, just pray for it, and then hayaan ko na lang po na mawala ang issue.”
Alden also acknowledged Juancho’s final statement on Instagram. He maintained that the middle finger is not for him. He also asked people to respect Juancho’s statement on social media.
“Siguro po sa social media post, kung anuman po ang nakasulat dun, let’s respect that. Respetuhin na lang po natin ang statement niya. And I don’t wanna elaborate naman po.”
Alden revealed that he received a text message from Juancho before releasing the said apology. He also added that he doesn’t have a problem with it.
“Wala na po yun and, on my end, wala pong problema.”
Before entering showbiz, Alden and Juancho were high school classmates in De La Salle – Canlubang in Laguna. They also worked together on various Kapuso projects. They had a prime-time series together, Destined To Be Yours in 2017.
