- Grae Fernandez visited his father Mark Anthony in jail after he was arrested for possessing a kilo of marijuana
- Grae said that his dad cried when he visited him
- The young actor is hoping that the public would not hastily judge and condemn his father
After getting incarcerated for being caught with one kilo of marijuana, actor Mark Anthony Fernandez was visited in jail by his celebrity son Grae Fernandez.
According to Grae, his father broke into tears when he saw his son visit him in Station 6 in Angeles, Pampanga.
“Ayos naman po siya. Nung nakita ko po siya, okay naman siya, pero naiiyak po siya sa akin. First time ko po yung nakita,” the young celebrity said.
(He is fine. When I saw him, he was fine, but he cried when he saw me. That was the first time I saw him cry.)
Grae also urged the public not to judge and condemn his father for possessing marijuana. Mark Anthony explained that he was only using marijuana for medicinal purposes.
“Siyempre, para hindi siya masyadong mahusgahan ng mga tao, kasi di naman nila nakikita ang kabaitan ng tatay ko. Hindi naman nila nakita lahat sa personal life, nakita lang nila yung nasa balita,” Grae explained.
(Of course, so he would not be judged too much by the public, because they do not see the kindness of my father. They do not know his personal life, all they know about him come from the news.)
Despite the incarceration of Mark Anthony, Grae said that he will always be proud of his father.
Grae is an artist for Star Magic and is one of the members of the boy band called Gimme 5. He recently appeared in TV shows such as “Pangako Sa ‘Yo,” “Home Sweetie Home,” “Ipaglaban Mo,” and “Ang Probinsyano.”
