Star Magic head defends John Lloyd Cruz over viral video

13 Sep - Star Magic's Johnny Manahan has recently defended actor John Lloyd Cruz over criticisms of his behaviour during his vacation in Cebu.

As reported on PEP, Manahan, who spoke about the viral videos showing Cruz dancing, singing, and acting chummy with a female friend while looking inebriated, stated that there is nothing wrong with blowing off steam, especially since the actor has been working hard every day since the beginning of his career.

"In this age of an all pervasive social media, what is okay and innocent in private becomes worthlessly controversial in public. He will have learned his lesson and be more careful in the future," his statement read.

In a previous Instagram post, Cruz apologised for his behaviour, and stated that he is learning from the incident.
