Lolit Solis took to social media to express her feelings about what happened at the Virra Mall in Greenhills, where a disgruntled former security guard shot an employee and took 50 others hostage for many hours.
KAMI learned that Lolit admitted to feeling sympathies for Archie Paray, the hostage-taker.
She said that hopelessness over the loss of his job and the means to provide led him to madness and desperation.
However, Lolit clarified that what Archie did is completely wrong, especially since he threatened dozens of innocent people with violence and even shot one of the employees.
“Sad ako sa nangyaring hostage taking sa Virra Mall, Salve. Sad dahil para gawin iyon ng isang nawalan ng trabaho, na siguro nagdilim ang isip dahil sa hopeless na siya, hindi alam ang gagawin, madilim na ang tingin sa paligid, nakakaawa din.
“Tutoo na hindi dapat iyon ang ginawa niya solusyon, ang mang hostage ng wala naman kinalaman at inosenteng mga tao pero siguro sa isang tao na nasa moment of madness dahil walang makitang solusyon sa problema niya, maawa ka rin.
“Mabuti at walang nasaktan, mabuti at naging maayos ang ending. Siguro dapat din magkaruon ng debriefing pag nag-aalis ng isang empleyado. Siguro pag nag fire out ng tao medyo tignan din iyon emotional state ng taong aalisan ng trabaho.
“Siyempre pag bread and butter mo ang mawawala, magiging very depressing para sa iyo, lalo na nga at meron kang pamilya na umaasa. Sana huwag ng maulit ito, sana matatag ang sinuman na meron hinaharap na problema sa buhay, tutoo man na hindi nakukuha sa dasal ang lahat ng problema, nagagawa nito kalmahin ang anuman gulo sa isip at puso natin.
“In darkness, a little light is what we need, at iyon ang ibinibigay sa atin ng dasal. God is good, all the time,” Lolit posted on Instagram.
KAMI previously reported about Lolit’s apology to Ivana Alawi for incorrectly believing the rumor that she is having an affair with a married man.
