Empoy Marquez shared his honest thoughts about the news that a hotel employee took legal action against his friend and “The Barker” co-star Ronie “Atak” Araña.
KAMI learned about Empoy’s comments about the issue from PEP.ph.
The alleged incident between the 45-year-old Atak and the 21-year-old hotel attendant took place in Okada Manila.
Empoy said that he was surprised by the news because he knew Atak as a good person.
He also expressed his hope that Atak would be able to triumph over the controversy.
“Mabait po si Atak, e. Actually, nagulat din ako sa news, pero alam ko ay malalampasan niya yun.
“At sana ay patnubayan siya ng Panginoon, at i-heal ang anumang pagkakamaling nagawa ninuman,” he said.
The actor also theorizes that the hotel attendant might have gotten surprised by Atak’s playfulness.
“Pero para sa akin ay mabuting tao siya… siguro ay nabigla lang yung tao. Lahat naman tayo ay nagkakamali.
“Siguro ay ipagdasal na lang natin siya. Sana ay magkaayos din ang dalawang kampo. Yun po…
“Ano... masaya lang siguro yung tao. Baka nagbibiro lang siya. Baka hinarot lang niya, tapos nabigla yung tao.”
KAMI is hoping that truth and justice would prevail in this controversy!
