Pinoy Big Brother host Toni Gonzaga defends former PBB housemate, Russu Laurente after he got evicted from the house just recently.
Russu made a buzz on social media after netizens found out that he was pro ABS-CBN shutdown, but still ended up auditioning on the said reality show.
On her Instagram account, Toni shares her sentiments as to why Russu deserves second chance.
“Back to work this 2021. For our 2nd eviction night housemate Russu was evicted because of a mistake he did that eventually made him realize the damage it has done. People are very quick to judge him, call him names and crucify him on social media because of it without realizing that at 19 years old, he doesn’t know the gravity of words spoken. He has learned his lesson and this will help him grow and mature in life. And now that he knows better, He will do better. May this also serve as a reminder for us to not define and label a person by the mistakes they’ve committed but from how they rise up, rebuild and become a better person they are really supposed to be. I hugged the boy after the show and he kept apologizing. Forgiveness is a gift everyone deserves. #sundayrealization2021”
The former housemate was also confronted inside the house by Big Brother himself, which he explains that he has now learned his lesson and promises to be better.
“Alam ko po kuya na nasaktan po kayo na minsan po isa rin ako sa mga sumang-ayon sa pagpapasara ng iyong tahanan nong mga panahong hindi ko pa alam ‘yung mga nangyayari, ‘yung mga totoong nangyayari po sa mga nakikita ko po kuya. I’m sorry po kuya kung nasaktan ko po kayo at ‘yung pamilya po ng ABS-CBN,”
