Padilla explained that his nephew’s father – the late actor Rudy Fernandez – would get angry with them if something happened to Mark.

He also thanked the cops who arrested Mark because they treated him well and did not harm him in any way. There have been some unverified reports that several drug users or pushers who are not resisting arrest were still killed by policemen.

Many netizens applauded the actor for not being bitter about the arrest of his relative.

“Buti si Robin di galit kahit sariling pamilya niya maaresto dahil sa droga,” a netizen commented.

(I commend Robin because he did not get angry that his own family was arrested due to drugs.)

Other online users theorized that the reason why Padilla opposed the planned public release of the supposed drug list containing the names of celebrity drug users was because he knew that one of his showbiz relatives are into drugs.

“Kaya pala ayaw niya ilabas pangalan ng mga adik sa showbiz, kasi pamilya niya mismo ang adik,” an online user claimed.

(The reason why he did not want the names of the drug addicts in showbiz to be released is because one of his family members is an addict.)
