Kris Aquino answers comments on PNoy absence at PNP SAF arrival honors
MANILA, Philippines – Though President Benigno Aquino III spent hours with the families of slain Special Action Force troops on January 30, social media users and citizens criticized his failure to meet the returning bodies of the elite cops the day before. The hashtag #nasaanangpangulo (Where is the President?) was a trending topic on social media.
On Instagram, Sunday, February 1, Kris answered some of the comments against her brother and her family.
Kris also said that she takes death threats seriously – her father, the late Senator Ninoy Aquino, was assassinated in 1983.
The TV host said that for as long as people condemn her brother, she will continue to defend him.
On Saturday January 31, Kris reposted a photo of her and Michael Buble, who was a guest on her show, with a lengthy caption saying that she was ready for all sorts of reactions when she visited the families of the soldiers.
In these changing times, courage and clarity become even more important.
