Better Than Noise issues apology to Daniel Padilla’s fans, thanks public for lessons learned

Members of the band Better Than Noise has issued an apology to the public over offending remarks they made regarding Daniel Padilla who is holding a concert here in Laoag City on Thursday, June 20. This comes a few days after netizens expressed their wrath after reading an article from this blog about the Ilocos Norte-based quintet serving as front act to Daniel Padilla whom they continued to bash heavily on Facebook.

 “Sa lahat ng fans ni Daniel Padilla, sa mga naniniwala sa kanya, sa mga rumerespeto sa kanya, sa mga tumitingala sa kanya, sa mga taong naoffend namin, sa mga taong naniniwala sa amin, sa mga sumusuporta sa Better Than Noise; sa lahat ng nakabasa, nakigulo, at nagcomment:

Kami po ay humihingi ng taos-pusong paumanhin. Sa nangyari, marami kaming napulot na aral, lalung lalo na ang paggalang sa kapwa. Bagama’t hindi po naming layunin ang manakit, hindi po namin naisip na bilang mga musikero, kinakailangan naming maging mas maingat at maging mas responsable sa aming mga sinasabi at ginagawa sapagka’t kami ay nasa katayuan hindi lamang upang magpasaya ngunit upang maging mabuting ehemplo na rin sa aming kapwa. Salamat po kay Sir Herdy La. Yumul sa pagmumulat ng aming kamalayan patungkol sa responsibilidad namin bilang mga alagad ng sining.

Sana po’y patuloy ninyong tangkilikin ang mga musikerong sariling atin. Sa mga nagalit sa amin at galit pa rin sa amin hindi po namin kayo masisisi ngunit tao lang din po kami na nagkakamali at tumatanggap sa pagkakamaling nagawa.

Huwag nyo pong kakalimutan sa June 20, 2013. Centennial Arena, Free Concert ni Daniel Padilla!

Pagmamahal at kapayapaan po sa lahat!”

It really takes courageous human beings to own up a mistake. And, we salute Better Than Noise for this act of nobility. I have met them personally, and I vouch for their sincerity.

So, here’s to happy endings and spirited beginnings, dear karikna.

Peace  and love, indeed.

  1. Bashing a fellow artist is a crass act while apologizing for your misstep is what we all call a class act. I hope hindi na maulit ito.

    Isip-isip din kasi, kung may narating na, wag masyadong feeling, look at daniel, humble pa din.

  3. Music has diverse composition and we differ in acceptance. Whether you like it or not; you’re right. Just learn to be sensitive.
