MANILA, Philippines — After photos and videos of an intoxicated John Lloyd Cruz went viral early this week, the award-winning actor apologized for his misbehavior but does not regret it.

In an Instagram post, John Lloyd said that while he is sorry to "the little boys & girls" for setting a bad example, he has "no regrets" because as he explained, what he did was "just life revealing its raw beauty."



As seen on the post, the actor said what happened was a "learning" and a "very humbling" experience.

Netizens have mixed reactions on the Instagram stories posted by a friend of actress Ellen Adarna. The videos and photos that went viral on Facebook showed the actor singing and dancing weirdly and holding up dirty fingers, making others comment that he might be under the influence of illegal drugs, a hot topic nowadays given the government's war on drugs.

Meanwhile, on JLC's apology post, some netizens commented that they understand that the actor just wanted to be true to himself and to have fun. Others advised him to also choose his friends or "the right company." They added that though the actor is entitled to get drunk and be merry, he should not forget his values.
