MANILA, Philippines – The daughter of former president now Manila Mayor Joseph “Erap” Ejercito Estrada criticized Kris Aquino on Facebook.
Jerika Ejercito, daughter of Erap with former actress Laarni Enriquez, shared a link of an article from Spot.ph, with the headline, “Kris Aquino defends brother, doesn’t seem to understand duties of the President.”
Kris’ brother, President Benigno Aquino III, has been heavily criticized after the death of 44 police officers in Mamasapano, Maguindanao, in a clash with rebel forces. Kris defended her brother saying that for as long as people criticize him, she will defend him.
The TV host-actress was not spared from criticism. While she defended her brother, she also unfollowed some celebrities for allegedly criticizing her brother on social media. She later said that she apologized to Ogie Alcasid and wife Regine Velasquez after a misunderstanding on the issue.
Meanwhile, Kris’ friends Derek Ramsay and John Lapus defended her, saying the Aquinos are good people and that the hurtful social media comments, among them wishing death on the Aquinos, were unnecessary. – Rappler.com
