Singer Janno Gibbs gave his reaction to the viral issue involving international artist Lea Salonga and her three Filipino fans, who entered her dressing room without permission.
In his Instagram story, Janno said that while Lea’s explanation about her personal space was valid, the OPM singer believed that it would be better if the latter made a better approach to her fans without embarrassing them in front of many people.
“Nasa tama naman si Ms. Lea. Bawal talaga sa dressing room/backstage ang wala sa listahan,” said Janno.
“Sana lang nasabi niya ng mas maayos. Yung hindi napapahiya ‘yung fans. Sa akin lang naman,” he added.
In the said video, Lea can be heard asking the said fans to leave the dressing room and wait for her outside.
Lea’s explanation has been receiving support from netizens, saying that the singer’s privacy should be respected.
Digital creator Christopher Retokelly Carpila, one of the Filipino fans who received a lecture from Lea, then posted a video to show how many people were waiting ‘outside’ to follow the protocols mentioned by the singer.
Still, Carpila still received criticism, saying that he should not expect VIP treatment and he should wait outside the Broadway if he really wanted to have a photo with Lea.
