President Rodrigo Duterte has apologized to Kris Aquino after Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson’s video post about the late Senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino being kissed by two women minutes before he was assassinated.
Special Assistant President Christopher “Bong” Go confirmed that he sent the message to Kris after talking to the president about her sentiments. Duterte then asked Go to send Kris a message saying “we are sorry for the incident.”
Go added that Uson has also agreed to apologize to Kris after talking with Duterte.
“Hindi po namin kontrolado si Asec. Mocha sa mga pinopost niya. May kanya-kanyang punto sila e. Si Asec. Mocha, pinapakita lang niya itong leader na ito, hinalikan din ng isang babae. Ibig niyang sabihin doon, pareho silang well-loved, well-respected,” Go said.
But Mocha said in an earlier Facebook post that the video was not about Kris.
“Tungkol ito sa paglagay ng malisya sa isang halik. Itinumbas lang sa gawain ng ibang lider tulad ng tatay niya. Ms. Aquino, this is not about you,” Mocha said.
Yesterday, Kris called out Mocha for posting the video. She said she became really emotional and dared Mocha to meet her face-to-face.
“Isa pa. Isa pa na bastusin at babuyin mo ang tatay o ang nanay ko.. magtutuos tayo,” Kris said in a Facebook video posted yesterday.
