TINANGGAP ni Kris Aquino ang paghingi ng paumanhin ni James Deakin, kilalang American vlogger matapos idawit ang kanyang pangalan nang kumalat ang retratong kasama si Bongbong Marcos.
Naging daan si Luis Manzano para humingi ng dispensa ang vlogger sa Queen of Online World and Social Media.
Sa Instagram post ni Kris, ipinakita niya ang mensahe ni Luis, “Hi Ninang! James Deakin is asking if he can get your number, can I give it? – Luis” gayundin ang sagot niyang, “hey there, sure.”
Kasama roon ang mensahe ni James na, “I see in hindsight now I shouldn’t have gone there and for that I am truly sorry. You’ve been nothing but gracious with me. And you don’t deserve to be dragged into this mess. I do hope you can accept my apology.”
Sagot ni Kris, “James Deakin, i sincerely appreciate the humble gesture to reach out, apologize & clear the air quickly.”
Bago ito, sinagot ni Kris ang post ni Deakin sa vlog niyang, “How do you solve a problem like Manila.”
“So for the record, I’m not a BBM defender. Nor am I a detractor.
“I’m a transport journalist and road safety advocate that is passionate about finding solutions to this traffic crisis we are all going through.
“And that requires having conversations and interviews with a whole range of people.
“Not just people that I like or who agree with me. And that is the very least you should expect from an objective journalist.”
Ani Kris sa kanyang IG post, Linggo ng madaling araw,“Was peacefully recuperating but a Road Safety Enthusiast and Influencer had to drag me as a “shield” when he got some unwanted reactions because of a picture that had been posted to drum up some noise for an upcoming vlog. Just as they’ve done in the US & other parts of the world, as a woman, i’m making my voice heard loud & proud. Instant Blog #3.
