Following the announcement, Robles posted a status message on his Facebook wall seeking help from family, friends and supporters.
I NEED HELP. To all my supporters… specially friends and love ones… to my Mom. I didn’t know what to do and not hearing anything from my coach and teammates or anyone from the show made wait until tonight. IT WAS TAKEN AWAY FROM ME. Myself.. being in that show is “personal” itself… I’ve been struggling and doing this all my life and always wanted to perform in a worldwide stage. I will never exchange this opportunity for anything. I am saying this because these people can always make up lies to be used against me.
While the show doesn’t give sufficient details about the sudden exit of Joniver Robles, viewers are asking why and what’s the real reason behind his removal.
According to a source, he broke the rules for posting valuable information on social media.
