Asia’s songbird Regine Velasquez aired her apology after receiving negative comments from netizens regarding her remark about Payatas in one of her recent YouTube vlog.
In the video, Regine was showing some of the items from her bag collection where she made a comment about one of her bags which she described as stinky, comparing it to Payatas.
Regine said: “Ito kasing bag na ‘to, mabaho. It stinks. It’s mabaho. I remember, noong binili ko talaga, ang baho talaga niya. It used to stink so much. It still is.”
“Kaamoy nung bag ko ‘yung Payatas, nakakatawa. Kasi kapag nasa Payatas ka na, hindi mo na maamoy ‘yung basura eh. Kasi kayo, pare-pareho na kayo ng amoy doon.. Mas mabaho pa siya sa Payatas. It really smells,” Regine added.
On her Twitter account, Regine apologized over her “insensitive” remark and wrote: “I would like to sincerely apologize to the people of Payatas for my insensitive comment. It was not intentional and I should be more careful with the things I say. Pasensya na po God bless bless po😊”
