- Alex Gonzaga joked that Luis Manzano bought his award at the PMPC Star Awards for Movies
- The joke became controversial on social media
- Alex admitted her mistake and explained her side of the story
Alex Gonzaga has expressed her regret over making a joke about Luis Manzano after he won the “Darling of the Press” award at the PMPC Star Awards for Movies.
KAMI learned about her statement from ABS-CBN News.
According to Alex, she and Luis mock and make fun of each other constantly as a sign of affection.
“Kami ni Kuya Luis, kapag nagkikita kami, talagang pinakamasasamang maiisip mo, 'yun ang aming affection sa isa’t isa.”
However, Alex recognizes that her joke – about Luis paying people so that he would receive the award – was inappropriate.
“Nawala lang ako sa lugar, nakalimutan ko na it was an awards show so I apologized right away. I really love PMPC.”
She added that she learned an important lesson in this controversy.
“Sabi ko kay Kuya Luis, ‘Kapag may mga awards, huwag ka na magpapakita sa akin kasi agad-agad, ang naiisip ko, bastusin ka.’
“Pero siyempre I am so happy na Kuya Luis was there to help me. Siya din ang nag-explain sa mga press na it was really a joke. I meant no harm. May mga blunders lang talaga.”
