Jason Francisco believes the issue about Melai Cantiveros and Mr. Fu is not a big deal


Newbie comedian Melai Cantiveros found herself in hot water after an episode of the gag show Banana Split where she burnt a photo of radio jock/TV host Mr. Fu. When Push.com.ph spoke with Melai'rsquo;s boyfriend and Banana Split co-star Jason Francisco during the look test for their upcoming teleserye Precious Hearts Romances presents Mana Po, he immediately clarified what really happened. "Ang tanong lang dun, kung ano 'lsquo;yung mga bagay sa 2010 na gustong nang kalimutan at sunugin na. Hindi naman ibig sabihin nun 'lsquo;yung tao na ang gustong sunugin. Kami rin sa Banana Split sinunog 'lsquo;yung picture namin. Siguro ang nakarating lang kay Mr. Fu, iba na 'lsquo;yung kwento. Tingin ko naman matalinong tao 'lsquo;yan si Mr. Fu. Hindi naman siguro siya magsasalita ng kung ano kung hindi maling kwento 'lsquo;yung nakarating sa kanya."

Jason shared that Melai is handling the controversy quite well despite the fact that she is being perceived as the bad guy because of what she did. He said she believes she didn'rsquo;t do anything wrong. "Maraming nagi-interview sa kanya tungkol dun. Tingin ko naman hindi siya apektado. Ang pagkakakilala ko sa kanya e kapag alam niyang wala naman siyang ginagawang masama hindi naman siya nagaalala. Para sa kanya hindi na importanteng pagusapan pa kasi wala namang dapat pagawayan. Kapag pinahaba lang nang pinahaba ang usapan lalo lang maiiba ang kwento."

After the simple incident turned into a burning controversy, Jason advised Melai to not talk too much about the issue so it can just easily go away. "Ang lagi kong sinasabi sa kanya e relax lang. Siguro mahal lang siya sobra ng mga tao kaya hilig siyang pagusapan. Mabuti pang manahimik na lang kaysa patulan pa niya 'lsquo;yung issue. Lalo lang hahaba. Matatapos din 'lsquo;yan kasi wala namang ginawang masama talaga."

In a separate interview with Push.com.ph also during the look test for Mana Po, Melai offered an apology if ever Mr. Fu was offended by her actions. However, Jason explained why he believes his ka-love team has nothing to be sorry about. "Ewan ko lang kay Isay kung sa tingin niya kailangan talagang mag-sorry. Pero sa totoo lang, kung iisipin mo talaga wala naman dapat ipag-sorry. Na misinterpret lang 'lsquo;yung nangyari. Sana intindihin talaga ng kabilang panig na wala naman talagang ginawang masama. Hindi naman 'lsquo;big deal.'rsquo; Nabigyan lang talaga ng kulay."

This issue comes amidst persistent claims that Melai, who got her big break as a comedian after winning in the reality show Pinoy Big Brother Double Up last year, is now acting like a prima donna because of her instant rise to fame. However, Jason doesn'rsquo;t think such is true and as a boyfriend he will make sure it won'rsquo;t happen. "Importante talaga ang pamilya at mga kaibigan na laging nagpapaalala. May mga tao kasi na dahil sa biglang sikat e nakakalimutan na 'lsquo;yung pinanggalingan nila. Dapat talaga laging nakaalalay ang mga mahal sa buhay. Si Isay naman, kung sino pa rin siya noong nakilala ko, na maingay at makulit, siya pa rin 'lsquo;yun. Kapag nakita
