Enchong Dee finally speaks up about an issue five years ago.
It was the photo taken five years ago where Enchong was smiling while staring at Piolo Pascual.
The said photo was taken in a fun run joined by celebrities on November 28, 2015.
This was then uploaded in social media and was maliciously interpreted by some netizens.
Finally, after how many years, Enchong directly addresses the controversial photo through a YouTube video he uploaded on April 17, 2020.
And because of the quarantine, the actor had plenty of his time to make a reaction video.
Accoding to Enchong, he was with Gerald Anderson and Rayver Cruz.
“Kasi ang question naming tatlo, kaming tatlo nila Rayver tsaka ni Gerald, ‘How was Piolo Pascual able to sustain his popularity for decades?’
“And bilib na bilib kami sa kanya in terms of that,” he explained.
The photo was taken when he was talking with Gerald and Rayver. Piolo was then giving advice so he was just staring at the latter and admiring what he was saying.
It turns out that it was taken by YES! Magazine, the print counterpart of PEP which Enchong assumed was the one took the photo.
“I was really admiring what he was telling me that time, so, yeah…
“For what it’s worth, I’m sure you had a good meme and good laugh from it, so I’ll give you that.”
Meanwhile, Enchong also clarifies that he was not the guy in a scandal that people are accusing him of.
