It can be recalled that Yeng Constantino made headlines the past few days after her social media rant concerning a doctor and a certain hospital in Siargao.
The Kapamilya singer was heavily criticized by netizens for 'doctor shaming' after she posted the full name and photo of the doctor.
KAMI learned that Yeng took to social media once again to send a message to the doctor involved.
She posted her statement on her Facebook account yesterday, July 22.
"Regarding the Siargao incident, yung mga recent posts ko was brought about by my high emotions dahil sa nangyari sa aking asawa whose life at that time I thought was in grave danger.
"Pagkatapos kong kausapin ang mga taong malapit sa akin I realized I should have been more responsible in my posts.
"I would like to apologize to Dr. Esterlina Tan and the other medical staff for the hurt that my post and vlog has caused them. Whatever concerns I had should have been coursed through the proper forum.
"It was unfair to call her out on social media and I’m taking down the posts and the vlog immediately. I’m deeply sorry for the hurt I caused her at sa lahat ng mga medical professionals who were affected by my posts.
"There is no excuse. I will do my best to be more responsible next time."
However, netizens think that the damage has already been done. Although some of them still lauded her for acknowledging her mistake.
Here are some of their comments from entertainment site, Fashion Pulis.
"Tsaka mo lang dinelete nung ilang milyon na naka kita. Dapat sa mga ganyan tinuturuan ng leksyon para di na tularan ng ibang tao. Tsk tsk"
"Brought by high emotions pero nakapag edit pa sya ng entry. Mabuti nalang matalino mga tao ngayon, kung hindi baka di lang trabaho nawala sa doctor kundi pati lisensya nya."
"Nagsorry dahil sa backlash. Super Self-entitled. Grave danger eh may time ka bang mag vlog at photo shoot. You are cancelled."
"Good for her to own up to her mistake BUT... she could have atleast mentioned the poor health care system of the country as a reflection. Kasi yun talaga ang core (CORE?!) problem."
"She learned her lesson the hard way. Wag na uulit ha"
"Good job owning your mistakes. Sa susunod wag na feeling entitled ok."
