THE man dressed as Spiderman who interrupted Game Five of the PBA Philippine Cup Finals between Magnolia and San Miguel said all he wanted to do was send a message since in this election season.
“Gusto ko lang po mag-send ng message kasi election po kasi,” said the man after he was collared by security officials of the Smart Araneta Coliseum in the hallway leading the two teams' dugouts.
The man, who appeared in his 20s, was holding up a placard that read, 'Vote Love, Love PBA, Love Philippines.'
Asked about it later, he said, “Gusto ko lang po magmahalan tayo. Gusto ko lang po magmahalan tayo, ‘yun lang, wala nang iba po."
League commissioner Willie Marcial and police on the scene refused to release details about the streaker.
Television replays show that he may have punched San Miguel star June Mar Fajardo during a collision on the court, but he denied the accusations.
“Malabo po ‘yun [masaktan ko si June Mar], sorry po,” he insisted.
“Kahit tignan niyo po, hindi ko po alam talaga dahil ‘yung message ko po pagmamahal eh, tapos mananakit po? Hindi ko po kayang gawin ‘yun, siya po unang bumangga sa akin,” he added.
When asked the reason behind his actions, he said that it was for a good cause.
“Matagal na po ako, may charity po ako matagal na 2010 pa,” he said. “Ito lang po talaga ‘yung pagkakataon para umayos tayong lahat.”
Meanwhile, two other men were taken by the security but they vehemently denied that they were with the man dressed as Spiderman.
They were later taken to the security office.
