Tough luck: Netizens react to drugs bust in Rico Blanco-owned bar
It seems like Rico Blanco is back in the spotlight except that there is no music playing for him. Blanco’s bar in Makati, Times Bar, was raided recently for a rampant use of suspected party drugs.

In a showbiz report, a total of 1.7 million peso-worth of cocaine, shabu and marijuana were collected in the said bar. A concerned citizen named Evan Orias even posted a photo of the search warrant issued against the popular hangout place.
Netizens were quick to poke fun at the musician after being implicated in the drug bust. One even used his song, “Huwag mong aaminin”, as a reference to his possible legal defense.

One viciously commented that Blanco’s bar is just another drug den in the country. He also asked why it’s hard to get all the pushers and users in one go despite the government’s insistence on the drug war.
The former Rivermaya frontman and his business partners are yet to issue an official statement. As of today, the establishment is closed down by the Makati Police until the full investigation is completed.
Kaya naman pala sila antukin!
