“I’m anti-drugs. I’ve always been anti-drugs. For me, dapat walang pinipili, wether artista ka or ordinaryong tao, mayaman ka or businessman. Kung gumagmit ka or nagtutulak ka ng drugs, you should be stopped,” Ramsy said.
According to him everyone must be given a second chance to change and become better.
“These people should be given a chance to go to rehab and change. It’s hard to turn his life around then you will going to exploit it to the public. Baka magka relapse naman. They should be very careful.”
“Being a celebrity, that doesn’t make us better than everyone else. We’re still the same as everyone. If you are involved in illegal substances and you don’t want to stop, you should be put out there,” he said.
“Bago sila maglabas, dapat talaga sigurado kasi masisira mo ang buhay ng tao. If it’s just hearsay, I don’t think you should (announced). But if you’re 100 percent sure na this person was given a chance to stop what he’s doing pero patuloy parin, I think yes, you should expose that in the public,” he added.
“We’re not better than everyone else. We’re celebreties and that’s our line of work. We have more responsibilities because there are so many people, especially the youth, who look up to us,”
According to the actor, before they tagged some celebrities, they should be 100 percent sure because it’s unfair if there’s no concrete proof.
“I don’t think that most celebrities are on drugs. Siguro ginagawa lang yan to cause some ingay kasi sikat, kasi kilala, mas maraming tao ang makikinig at maiintriga pag artista ang gumagamit,” he said.
