Here is the crux of the letter obtained by Inquirer.

"During the said incident, Mr. Joey de Leon suggested 'lubid' (rope) as an answer to a question regarding things that may be worn around the neck."
"He conveyed this verbally in a very brief manner without further actions, elaborations or demonstrations. However, some viewers interpreted the utterance of the said object to be an insinuation of a person taking his own life, which is a very sensitive and triggering subject."
"In this regard, the whole E.A.T. management is regretful and apologetic to those who were offended by the said utterance. Rest assured that we are one with MTRCB in advocating a responsible viewing experience for the public."
