MANILA – Coco Martin apparently lost his cool when he addressed an unidentified person on social media, who he accuses of doing nothing but speculate about his private life.
In a lengthy post on Instagram, Martin said his decision to keep mum for the longest time should not be taken to mean that he is a coward.
“Ang hindi ko pagkibo at hindi pagpatol sa mga bagay na hindi kauunlad ng ating bayan ay hindi kabaklaan at kaduwagan,” he said.
“May kanya kanya tayong buhay at tayo ang may dedesisyon kung pano natin patatakbuhin ito at sa aking palagay wala akong nagawang masama sayo kung sino kaman hindi ko kailangan ang mga masasakit na opinion mo!”
Martin said he’s been busy working hard for his family as what his grandmother taught him, that’s why he finds it rude that other people keep on making false assumptions about him when he’s not done them any wrong.
“Nag tatrabaho lang ako at may meron din akong pribadong buhay wag nman sana ang buhay ko ang pagkwentuhan nyo dahil hindi interesado ang buhay ko. Mas maganda siguro humanap tayo ng ibang kapakipaki nabang na paguusapan para sa ating lipunan para may maiambag nman tayo sa ating bayan,” he said.
He then urged his detractors to just mind their own business.
“Ang trabaho ko ay umarte at bigyan ng buhay ang mga character na ginagampanan ko. Tahimik po ako na nagtatrabaho at namumuhay kaya mas makakabuti siguro ang buhay mo nalang ang ikwento mo sigurado ako mas intersante ang buhay mo,” he said.
In the end, Martin said he hopes his critics would just focus on doing good rather than tarnishing his reputation.
“Sana lang bago ka mawala sa mundo alam mo sasarili mo na may naibahagi kang kabutihan sa iyong kapwa hindi puro paninira! Pasensya kana ang desisyon ko ay panatiliin tahimik ang buhay ko at sana naiintindihan mo!!! God bless,” he said.
It is uncertain as to what triggered Martin’s social media outburst, but his succeeding posts say that he is only responsible “for what I say and not what you understand.”
Another post also suggests for people to just shut up if they do not know the whole story.
