Actress Rita Avila reacted to the blunt statements made by Christoper Carpila, the fan who became infamous on social media after posting his encounter with singer Lea Salonga.
It can be recalled that Christopher recorded the said incident, where Lea could be heard lecturing the group of Filipino fans who allegedly entered the backstage without a guest pass.
In a statement, Christopher said that he had no regrets about posting the said video, saying that he only wanted to cope with his disappointment.
“Ang pag-post ko ng video ay way ko para mailabas ko ‘yung naramdaman ko noong gabing iyon. Hindi po ako nag-pi-feeling ‘entitled’, honest lamang po ako pero para akong ipis na inapakan o kuto na tiniris. Gulat na gulat po kaming lahat,” he said.
Rita then made a short response to Christopher’s statement, saying that people should distance themselves from the people like the businessman.
“If the brain is smaller than a pea like a lice.. BEWARE,” said Rita.
According to her, while she understood that some fans might feel upset when their idols are rejecting them for a photo-op, she also said that celebrities are also human and their privacy should also be respected.
