YOUNG actor Bugoy Cariño and University of Santo Tomas player EJ Laure remain the talk of town after the couple unveiled a family picture last weekend.
Many netizens weighed in the issue, including a few social media celebrities. Among the posts about the issue that went viral was from beauty vlogger Angel Dei, who tweeted, "This is so wrong!!!! I can’t believe some people are defending this!!"
The vlogger added: "Guys let me clarify. I’m not attacking the person. The action is wrong and shouldn’t be tolerated. Dun lang tayo. I don’t have any hatred towards anyone. I’m not judging anyone. I don't condone the action but not the person. Let’s be clear with this."
Cariño, who had just turned 18 a few days ago, explained his position as he quoted the tweet.
"Opo alam namin na may mali sa ginawa namen, pero para ijudge kami basta basta? Ibang usapan na po yun... hindi nyo po alam buong story namin," part of his tweet read.
In a separate tweet, the former Goin' Bulilit star added: "Bago ka mag judge, magaral ka muna ng LAW!"
In a surprise post last Friday, both Cariño and Laure — who had both denied persistent rumors of EJ's pregnancy over the years — posted a picture of their little family, including their baby Scarlet, to celebrate Bugoy's 18th birthday.
"Happy birthday, Mahal. Thank you sa lahat ng ginawa at ginagawa mo para sa amin ni baby Scarlet!" Laure posted.
