The family of Ms. Darren has opted to accept the apology and explanation of the FAMAS organization.

“We truly appreciate the overwhelming display of love and support. Once again the people have spoken and proved that the keyboard is mightier than the sword. Salamat my kinakapatid Reb Belleza and Miss Maila Gumila for spreading the word,” Ms. Darren’s son, Fernando dela Pena, wrote in a Facebook post.
“My mom is one tough cookie, she is a battle-tested survivor of life's arena. Ms. Eva Darren has found some comfort in the midst of a loving family which includes you all,” he added.

He then exonerated Tirso and FAMAS PR Officer Mr. Renz Spangler as they were innocent and were also confused as to what happened during the event.

‘We also know that Mr. Tirso Cruz III and the PR Officer of FAMAS Mr. Renz Spangler (An incredible author and lover of classic cinema), have nothing to do with what happened and just the same, were casualties of someone's questionable backstage judgment,” dela Pena said.

Mr. dela Pena then said that he is accepting the apology issued by FAMAS on behalf of his mother and their entire family, expressing hopes it would never happen again.

“For the reasons I stated above and on behalf of my mother, Ms. Eva Darren, our family accepts the olive branch that FAMAS has extended and only hope that future events would prove to be contrasting,” Ms. Darren’s son wrote.

Near the end of his post, he then humbly offered his own advice to those concerned.

“I understand that we are but a small voice in the back row of a rowdy crowd, but if I may humbly, personally, recommend two things for the 73rd FAMAS Awards Night: Please stick to the script…and maybe a nice pair of eyeglasses for all in charge,” Mr. dela Pena concluded.
