Journey singer Arnel Pineda took to social media to hit back at critics following the arrest of his younger brother for alleged illegal drug possession.
According to a report by Pilipino Star Ngayon, Arnel’s younger brother Rusmon along with a barangay tanod got arrested in a buy-bust operation in Quezon City last October 6, after they were caught selling shabu worth P136,000.
Arnel in an Instagram post on Thursday wrote a message to people who threw criticisms against him and his family over his brother’s arrest.
“To the bashers who chose to cowardly succumb to prejudism & unkindness while hiding conveniently in the cloak of your keyboards & computer screens, there are more helpful & useful things to do, like facing your precious mirror once in a while,” stated Arnel.
He stressed, “Who knows, you might find yourselves as imperfect as me, my family and everyone else.”
The 53-year-old singer-songwriter also left a message for “my real friends & supporters, who (know) that our friendship is eternally unbounded by time & space, you know who you are.”
He added, “Thank you for your prayers & love. You don’t even know how much all of you have hugely blessed us by sending kind & comforting words. May God be with you all always ???. Love & peace.”
