Padilla expressed gratitude towards God and police authorities, admitting great relief that the actor was safe and wasn't harmed despite the heated encounter which led to a car chase. He incessantly thanked the authorities who arrested his nephew for treating him well. Many unverified reports have been rising claiming that despite the lack of resistance during arrest, some pushers are still being neutralized by the authorities.
Furthermore, he said that the late actor and father of Mark Anthony, Rudy Fernandez would be infuriated if anything happened to his son.
The actor's disposition regarding the arrest was commended by netizens, praising him for his composure and lack of bitterness towards the government and police despite the arrest.
A netizen even commented, "Buti si Robin di galit kahit sariling pamilya nya maaresto dahil sa droga."
However, others have speculated that his might possibly be the reason why the actor opposed the supposed-disclosure of names of celebrity users and pushers.
"Kaya pala ayaw nya ilabas pangalan ng mga adik sa showbiz, kasi pamilya nya mismo ang adik," another netizen commented.
