Aquino said there is no shame in admitting one's mistakes.
“Doon sa mga [nasangkot] ngayon, nakita natin yung pagpapakulong sa kanila, yung mga pinagdadaanan nila. Unang-una diyan, own up to it. Nangyari, e."
The actress used the United States of America as an example.
"And I think, sa America, kaya sila nakaka-recover kasi ino-own nila, and they do something about it." she said.
“And, thank you Lord, natututo sila. Sana mangyari din sa atin 'to — na matuto tayong lahat.” she added.
She said instead of shaming these celebrities, they must be aided to become better.
"“Okay, hinuli mo, pinahiya mo... Bakit sa America, si Robert Downey Jr. nakulong, na-rehab? And then naging Iron Man pa siya." she said.

“So ako, ipinagdadasal ko na sana lahat ng ito... If you're still into it, my God naman, matuto ka na! Stop it. If you can afford to buy it [drugs], e, so dalhin mo na sarili mo sa rehab."
She said actors can opt to get treated abroad to avoid scandals.
“It begins with you or, at least, the ones who really love you, linisin ka nila."
“Kasi, gusto mo ba mamatay?”
She said she hopes that the celebrities who were arrested for drug use will have good support systems.
“And you will need talaga people to love you, to help you rise up."
She also called on to the media to treat these issues ethically.
