John Arcilla Reacts On Erik Matti’s Instagram Rant
JOHN ARCILLA – Check out the reaction of actor John Arcilla to Erik Matti’s social media rant.
Director Erik Matti recently blasted John Arcilla and Star Magic on social media. Upon receiving recognition from the Senate for winning the Best Actor Award at the 2021 Venice Film Festival for his role in their acclaimed film, Erik complained about Arcilla and the talent agency for failing to mention their movie “On the Job: The Missing 8.”
Matti expressed his sentiments on Instagram by posting screenshots of John and Star Magic’s IG posts. He wrote, “Ano kayang movie nakapanalo kay @johnarcilla ng Volpi cup? Ni hindi man lang nila mamention ni @starmagicphils yung movie na nagbigay sa kanya ng parangal? Medyo inexpect ko na yun sa ABS na di magmention kasi nung may prangkisa pa sila ganun na sila e. Pag di pabor sa kanila, dedma. Pero yung mismong artista ng pelikula di man lang ma-mention ang movie?”
John Arcilla, who played Sisoy Salas in the sequel to “On The Job” from 2013, is the first Filipino actor to win the prestigious prize. Also, Erik Matti stated that while he did not mind that the film’s makers were not mentioned, he did not appreciate that the film itself was not brought up.
“Pwera na kaming mga gumawa, OK lang di masabi pero sana yung movie man lang i-acknowledge. Ang Senado nga ni-recognize mismong movie na pinanalunan mo pero ikaw di mo mamention?”
“Ako na magsasabi, ‘Salamat sa On The Job: The Missing 8′ na movie na binigyan ako ng pagkakataon magawa ang role ni Sisoy Salas na ikinapanalo ko ng Venice Film Festival Volpi Cup award nung 2022.’ Lahat ng sponsor mo sa derma at diet mo minention mo yung [movie na] nagpanalo sayo di mo masabi?!! Bastos kayo!” he added.
In response to Erik Matti’s outburst, John Arcilla edited his initial Instagram post on the Senate recognition to include Erik Matti’s name and the title of the film.
Also, he posted a collection of past remarks in which he thanked the award-winning director. John also uploaded their photos together, saying that he and Erik are friends and a team.
