Kapamilya actor Awra Briguela received tremendous support from her friends, fans, and the LGBTQIA+ community after being involved in a heated confrontation at Poblacion, Makati, Thursday night.
Thousands expressed their support to the actor and even demanded the Makati City Police free Briguela, who was expected to stay behind bars until Monday while waiting for the opening of the court.
However, the sentiment of the netizens was slowly changing after GMA News published the CCTV footage taken before the confrontation happened.
The CCTV footage was taken inside the bar where the group of Awra and the complainant Mark Christian Ravana, were partying.
In the footage, it can be seen that Awra was trying to talk to the group of Ravana and having fun with them.
According to the complainant, Awra was trying to ‘dare’ him to remove his clothes, but Ravana said that he refused the demand from the actor.
However, Ravana claimed that Awra kept insisting on his demands and even followed him outside the bar.
“Nakursunadahan niya po ako, hindi niya po ako pinapalabas ng bar hangga’t hindi po ako naghuhubad,” Ravana told GMA News.
“Hindi ako pumapayag, tapos nilalayuan ko siya,” he added.
Just to make Awra satisfied, Ravana decided to remove his clothes, but the actor asked him to remove his pants, which the complainant refused to do so.
The refusal of Ravana disappointed Awra and resulted in a heated argument between them.
Awra then pushed the group of Ravana, but the complainant decided not to pay attention to the actor anymore and left the bar.
However, Awra followed them, and that’s when the heated confrontation started.
The CCTV footage published by GMA News shed light on the incident, and some netizens were now questioning Awra’s innocence on the issue.
As of writing, Awra has yet to give any statement on the issue.
