MANILA – Piolo Pascual shrugged off malicious comments after a photo of his son Inigo embracing him while sleeping made the rounds online.

The photo was originally shared by Piolo’s long-time personal assistant Moi on her Instagram page three days ago.

In an interview with entertainment site PEP, Piolo said he does not think there is a need for him to address the comments.

“Kumbaga hindi ko na pinagtakahan 'yun. 'Yun talaga 'yung nature ng tao eh, mapagmasama, 'yung mapagduda,” he said,

Piolo added that his detractors could say whatever they want.

“My son didn’t see me for two months, you know, so ganun kami. Ganun kami ka-affectionate sa isa’t isa, so mainggit na lang sila, di ba?” he said.

Having been in showbiz for over a decade now, Piolo said he is already used to people making up stories.

“Sa tagal ko ba naman sa industriya, papatol pa ba tayo? Ipinagkibit-balikat na lang 'yun at mas maraming may kuwentang gawin sa buhay kaysa pumatol,” he said.
