- Kris Aquino lashed out at Mar Roxas' campaign manager, Caloocan City 2nd District Representative Edgar Erice
- Rep. Edgar Erice said that Mar is changing his campaign color to blue because he “needed to get away from (Aquino’s) shadow”
- As a response, Kris said that he shouldn't blame Mar's loss to her brother, former president Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino
Kris Aquino slammed Caloocan City 2nd District Representative Edgar Erice, senatorial candidate Mar Roxas' campaign manager, for his statement about her brother, former President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino.
In a report by Inquirer, Rep. Edgar Erice revealed that Mar will be changing his campaign color from the Liberal Party's (LP) signature color yellow to blue.
According to him, the senatorial bet needs "to get away from (Aquino's) shadow."
Rep. Erice added that one mistake that led to Mar's loss in the Presidential bid back in 2016 was wearing the color yellow, which easily associated him with the term "dilawan," a name given by people to President Rodrigo Duterte's opponents.
He said, "It was a conscious decision [to change colors] because one mistake [Roxas] made in 2016 was acting like Robin to [Aquino's] Batman...and Robin will never be Batman."
Because of what he said, the Queen of All Media, Kris Aquino, who is supposed to be on break from social media, defended her brother and said that he should not be blamed for Mar's loss.
In the now deleted Instagram post, Kris broke her silence on the issue and slammed the campaign manager for what he said.
"Really – to blame his loss on my brother? So pati ba pagkatalo sa 2010 kasalanan din ni Noy?," she said.
Although Kris and her brother are not in good terms lately due to her post in 2018 saying "why it was so clear" to her that President Duterte won the elections, she is trying to patch things up with him. She addressed one of her latest Instagram posts to her brother.
In a previous report by KAMI, Kris Aquino revealed she is taking a break from all her social media activities.
Kris Aquino is known as the “Queen of All Media” due to her success as a movie star, TV actress, talk show host, brand endorser, and social media celebrity. Her son Bimby is her child with ex-husband James Yap. Her older son, Josh, is Kris’ child with former partner Philip Salvador.
