Speaking to the media over the weekend, Santos said it is hard to voice her opinion because most people have not seen the whole video of the incident.

“Ang hirap rumeact sa ganyang sitwasyon lalo pa’t hindi mo maiiwasan na magkaroon ng comparison di ba? Mahirap pumosisyon sa isang side ng story kasi hindi naman natin nakita 'yung buong pangyayari,” she said.

Santos said she is just hoping that the row will soon be settled.

“Ang sa akin lang sana matapos ng maayos kasi I’m sure kahit sino naman sa atin hindi gusto na mapunta sa ganung sitwasyon na hindi maganda di ba?” she said.

Santos said a person does not normally become aware of his or her actions when he or she is mad. Thus, people who are not involved in the scuffle should not make quick judgments.

“We really don’t know what really happened pero sa akin na lang wala tayong karapatang mag-judge agad-agad kasi hindi natin alam kung sino 'yung unang prumoseso ng mga bagay-bagay. Mahirap talagang mapunta sa isang sitwasyon na lalo pa’t may pinanggagalingan kang init ng ulo so ang hirap magkomento,” she said.

Santos, however, admitted she got shocked when she learned about the incident.

“Lahat naman ata tayo na-shock. Pero sa kabilang banda may pinag-ugatan ang lahat. Hindi naman yan basta nangyari siguro ‘di ba? May pinag-ugatan yan at hindi natin alam kung saan nanggaling,” she explained.
