“For the past 2 days I’ve tried to explain myself over and over again. Been receiving so much hate from the supporters of Ms. Bohol. I’ve tried to explain that in no way would I have disrespected their candidate and that there’s a longer joke that wasn’t aired due to time restraints.
“Here’s the unedited video of my conversation with Ms. Bohol @paulineamelinckx. You can clearly see that we are having a friendly conversation. Being in her position is stressful so I was trying to lesson the tension by making her laugh.
“I am sorry to anyone who got offended by the edited video. I have so much respect for all the ladies and people behind @themissuniverseph! Congrats to everyone! I hope this ends all of the bashing that’s coming my way.
“I should’ve just let this go and focused on the positive aspects of the event. But instead I opened my mouth to try to defend myself which seemed to draw more attention to what was to Pauline and I an innocent joke.
“So I hope everyone can see the joke in its entirety. If you still don’t like me after seeing this then I’m ok with it. At least you have all the information to form your opinions. I’m done with this. Let’s go back to more fun things like lobbying for me to be the first bald man @creamsilkph endorser,” KC posted on Instagram.
