Whether he still stands by his point that Juliet Ibrahim is ungrateful John revealed that he never said she is ungrateful, But at least if someone has sacrificed to give you a ticket and you just have to pay for half of your hotels bills, You should be able to appreciate the person .”May be she did not understand the terms and conditions before joining the trip” he added in his statement
