As netizens reacted unfavorably to Aiko’s TikTok video, her boyfriend, Zambales Rep Jay Khonghun, defended her. Jay commented on the situation on Facebook, emphasizing that the dancing video was filmed prior to the roll call. As a result, no rules were broken.

“In light of the recent news involving Councilor Aiko Melendez, the Office of Congressman Jay Khonghun would like to first correct the statement of former COMELEC Commissioner Rowena Guanzon that the viral Tik-Tok videos of QC District 5 Councilor Aiko Melendez were done at the Plenary Hall of the House of Representatives. Those videos were taken at the Quezon City Session Hall.

Meanwhile, QC Vice Mayor Gian Sotto issues a statement in response to Aiko’s controversial video. Sotto said that Councilor Aiko and others did not breach any internal Quezon City Council rules or procedures, and that it was recorded prior to their planned session.

“Councilor Aiko has an exemplary record as a councilor of District 5. She was never involved in any corrupt and dishonest practices while serving her term. This Tik-Tok video should not taint her hardwork and dedication as a city councilor as if she did a crime,” Jay said.

To all social media users, while we respect your right to call out public officials in the performance of their duties, social media is not a great place to advocate misinformation and personal attacks. Besides, would you prefer a public official who publicly posts TikTok videos for fun or a public official who steals public money quietly,” he added in his post.
