- Jon Lucas’ post on social media about Tom Doromal’s involvement in the death of Franco Hernandez became controversial
- Many netizens thought that Jon was against Franco’s girlfriend Janica Nam Floresca
- Jon clarified the intention behind his viral post
Jon Lucas made a clarification of his Facebook post about the death of his friend and Hashtags co-member Franco Hernandez on November 11 in Davao Occidental.
KAMI learned about Jon’s comments about the controversy from PEP.ph.
Many netizens thought that Jon was siding with Tom Doromal, who Janica Nam Floresca – Franco’s girlfriend – accused of not doing enough to save her boyfriend’s life.
But according to Jon, his social media post was pertaining to Tom’s bashers and not to Janica Nam.
“Ang akin naman, hindi ko naman talaga sinasalungat yung pinost nun [Nam]. Pero ang akin naman, wala naman kaming lahat sa pinangyarihan, so ba’t ko rin sasalungatin?
“Ang dahilan ng pag-post ko ay para dun sa mga naninisi kay Tom, para sa mga namba-bash sa kanya, na hinuhusgahan siya.
“Ayun po ang reason kung ba’t po ako nag-post—hindi para sa parents ng kagrupo ko o sa girlfriend ng kagrupo ko.
“Lahat ng post ko, tungkol sa bashers na, sana, huwag tayong manisi dahil wala naman tayong lahat [sa pinangyarihan].
“Yun ang hindi maintindihan ng iba, e. Yun ang gusto kong iparating. Akala nila kasi sinasalungat ko yung [statement ni Nam]…
“Kay Tom, about sa statement, hindi ko pa siya nakakausap kung ano ang reaksiyon niya. Pero siguro okay lang yun sa kanya, kasi nga andun din naman yung girlfriend.
"So, maaaring lahat ng masabi niya or yung ibang masabi niya, e, nangyari talaga."
Jon and Tom are both members of the male dance group Hashtags, which Franco was a member of when he was still alive.
The other members of the popular group include Zeus Collins, Nikko Natividad, Bugoy Cariño, Jimboy Martin, Paulo Angeles, Ryle Santiago and Luke Conde.
Hashtags regularly perform on the Kapamilya noontime show “It’s Showtime.”
Franco was introduced as a new member of the group in February 2017.
KAMI is hoping that the truth would prevail in this controversy!
