“As some of you may know, the Philippines is where a large majority of my family is from,” Criss writes on his website.


“My mother was born and raised there, and as a result I have always been proud of my Filipino heritage, as well as lucky enough to feel the tremendous support of the Filipino community throughout my life as an artist,” he said.

“I thank everyone who has voiced their concern for my family that live there, and I return the same sentiment to those of you who have the same situation.”
