“Humingi na po ng paumanhin si Andrew Olivar sa kaniyang pagsa-sign language na may pabiro. Gayunpaman, I take full responsibility sa ginawa ng aking radio show partner at kaibigan. Kaya po sa ating mga kapatid sa deaf community nawa’y tanggapin niyo po ang aking sorry. Please forgive me,” said Asec. Mocha.

Her blogger friend Andrew also issued the following statement:

“Alam kong mali ako eh. Alam kong mali ako. Hindi ako magri-reason out. I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry po. Patawarin niyo po ako. Patawarin niyo po ako sa pagiging insensitive ko, sa pagiging childish ko. Never akong magri-reason out dahil kapag mali ka, mali talaga. Kaya ‘wag mo nang ipagtanggol,” said Andrew.
