Singer JK Labajo turned to social media to defend his friend, controversial actor Baron Geisler, from his critics, saying people shouldn't be too quick to judge other people without knowing the whole story.
On Instagram, the "Buwan" hitmaker posted a photo of himself with Baron and praised the actor for being a nice person.
"Seryoso, ang bait ni bro Baron Geisler," he said. "People shouldn't be too quick to judge especially by just basing it off of whatever they see on the internet. Katulad nga ng napaka-lumang kasabihan, 'Alamin muna ang buong storya bago mag-sampa.'
"You get what you give. Be kind and you'll get kindness. Give respect and you'll earn respect. Give love and get love in return. Stay safe everyone," added JK.
Recently, Baron made headlines following his tell-all interview with host Toni Gonzaga, where he admitted that his biggest regret in life is that his late mother didn't get to see him become a better man.
"That night I was preparing to go to a five-day retreat. And I was sober for a while. So, I went to her room, nakaputi ako nito, long hair, may bigote, naka floral na shorts. And then when I said, 'Mom, Baron here. Good boy. I'm gonna go to this retreat, I'll see you when I get back.'" Baron narrated.
“Parang sa pelikula, she tried to stand up and say something and sabi ko, ‘What is it?’ I sort of knew na this is it so kumuha ako ng penlight chineck ko 'yung mata ni mommy. And slowly, slowly nagdi-dilate. That's when I knew we lost her. I was there," he added.
The actor was admitted to rehab several times in the past for alcoholism. He also has been involved in numerous controversies and intrigue throughout his showbiz career.
Turning emotional, Baron said: “My dream kasi noong time na 'yun was for my mom to see me clean."
"But a lot people are saying naman na... ang dami naman na nagsasabi ngayon na, 'She's proud of you now.'"
During the interview, Baron also talked about his road to recovery from alcoholism.
"My recovery is not for Jamie (Evangelista, his wife), not for Tali (his daughter). It is for me because how can I lead a family if I am not ready, if I am not whole so I need to get to that point where I am strong enough not be tempted so easily," he said.
"As we grow older, we evolve and hopefully we evolve for the better. I want to evolve to become a really, really good leader, a respectable man," he added.
