John Arcilla has politely asked FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano fans to stop contacting his official social media accounts to send him “death threats”.
The FPJAP star, who played the main antagonist Renato Hipolito in the just-concluded ABS-CBN show, took to social media to reveal the numerous threats he received from viewers.
“Chill lang mga Pars and Mars. Serye lang po walang personalan. Sana naman joke-jokan lang yan. Pagbantaan po ninyo si Hipolito huwag po ako. Kasi parang mejo hindi nakakatawa yon diba?” he wrote in the caption.
In another Instagram post, he featured a screenshot of a netizen’s message with his lengthy response.
The netizen wrote: “Sana mamatay ka na sa totoong buhay John Arcila with Renato bwetre Hipolito. Ipagdasal kita na sana mamatay ka na sa totoong buhay napaka animal mo.”
In the caption of his upload, the veteran actor shared that the public’s “sense of reality” must be reviewed.
“Dahil kahit alam kong mas powerful ang faith ko bilang tao sa iyong intention, parang I need to post this to make other people aware na may mga audience na ganito na sana ay mapaliwanagan ng iba,” he said.
John continued, “Kung nagagalit kayo kay Hipolito, understandable pero kung sakin, parang I think kailangan natin i-review ang ating sense of reality.”
“Ang moral lesson po dito ay dapat talaga walang WAR, dahil kung itong fiction lang ay nasasaktan tayong lahat lalo na sa totoong buhay. Sabi nga Walang nananalo sa giyera. Bawat kampo ay may kanya kanyang mga kapatid anak asawa at magulang.”
ABS-CBN’s longest running television show, Ang Probinsyano, bid farewell to its viewers on August 12 after nearly 7 years on air.
