MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – In her morning show “Kris TV”, presidential sister Kris Aquino revealed to young singer Darren Espanto that she once got a failing grade of 74 in Filipino.
As one would expect, her revelation drew a lot of jeers and negative comments on Philippine social media.
Today, Aquino issued a statement assailing her critics, asking them to “move on.”
Following is her full statement:
“Don’t make too much pansin to what I said on TV. Trinay ko lang na i-emphasize the halaga of learning our national language, di ba? Feel ko na I have a responsibility as a celebrity to make tawag to all our bagets to seriosohin our language. There is nothing mali about admitting that naka gets ako ng failing grade in Filipino. After all, I grew up in the States and didn’t have too many friends that I could make tsismis with. I hope my critics can move on na!”
How would you grade her statement? Pass or fail?
