TV personality Kris Aquino on Wednesday said she was hurt by senatorial candidate Christopher “Bong” Go’s joke pertaining to her past relationship with actor Philip Salvador.
During a campaign sortie of the PartidoDemokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-LABAN), Go said in jest that Salvador, whom he called Ipe, had “fooled” Kris.
Kris shared the video of the incident on Instagram.
“So much hurt deeply in the past few days. I was shown this video while in Japan and had actually reached out to Senatorial Candidate Bong Go because turo ng Dad ko, panindiganmona good sport ka,” Kris said in the caption.
“‘Yun angpagkakamaliko, may black eye nung Friday, napangahan ng Tuesday taposnakitaulitna punchline akosa campaign sortie at pinagtatawanandahilnga ‘naloko’ ako,” she added.
Kris was in a highly-publicized relationship with Salvador in the ’90s and they have a child, Joshua.
The video shows Go’s joke drew laughter from the audience.
“Si IpeparatikopoitongkasamadahilkaibigantalaganaminniPangulo at unofficially po kung meronpokayongnagawangkabutihansaisangsiyudad, ina-adopt posiyabilang adopted son of the city. Pero siIpepokakaiba ‘yung recognition nabinigaysakaniya, adopted father of Davao City posiyakasipo nag–iwanposiya ng apatnaanaksa Davao…,” Go said.
“Totoonaman eh… nalokomongasi Kris Aquino eh,” he added.
Kris said she did not do anything wrong to Go, adding that she only has good words for the senatorial bet who, according to her, is a “sure winner” in the coming midterm polls.
“Sana priority niyorinpoangmgakababaihan. Kris Aquino nakoperomadalinggawing ‘joke’ na ‘naloko’ ako ng ama ng panganayko. Nagtrabahoako at hindiakopinabayaan ng pamilyako,” Kris said.
“But what about the women without financial security and family?” she added.
Furthermore, Kris said: “Sorry ha -minalas- nandoonkasi ‘yung ‘naloko,’ nakadapanapo, nungpinanuodulit at narinig ‘yungtawanan ng audience, isa pang sampalsataongumaamin, matatalosiya.”
