Mocha ayaw mag sorry kay Kris: ‘This is not about you' – “This is not about you.”
This was how Presidential Communications Assistant Secretary Margaux “Mocha” Uson responded to Kris Aquino's statements against her Tuesday night, when the actress vented against the former sexy dancer's post that she felt had “disrespected” her late parents.
In a 23-second video, Uson defended her decision to post a video that showed Aquino's late father, slain former Sen. Benigno ‘Ninoy' Aquino Jr., getting a kiss from two women, following a controversy surrounding President Rodrigo Duterte's kiss with a married Filipina during his recently concluded visit to South Korea.
The video of Aquino getting kissed was taken moments before he was shot dead at the Manila airport on August 21, 1983. The actress said her post revived the pain she felt in losing her dad.
Unfazed, Uson asserted that Aquino was barking up the wrong tree.
“This is not about Kris Aquino. Tungkol ito sa paglagay ng malisya sa isang halik. Itinumbas lang sa gawain ng isang leader tulad ng tatay niya. Ms. Aquino, this is not about you,” Uson said in a Facebook video.
Uson, however, did not issue an apology, contrary to what Special Assistant to the President Bong Go said earlier Wednesday.
In a 17-minute live video on Facebook and Instagram Tuesday night, Aquino said she was ready to face Uson “anytime, anywhere” as she hit the former sexy dancer's post.
“I am giving you fair warning, isa pa na bastusin o babuyin mo ang tatay o ang nanay ko, magtutuos tayo (one more time that you disrespect or besmirch my dad or my mom, we will have a reckoning).”
