Kris Aquino attended the world premiere of Crazy Rich Asians. The said red carpet premiere was held in TCL Chinese Theater in Los Angeles, California on August 7, Tuesday.
Kris posted a video on Instagram, showing her homecoming gifts from family and friends.
Kris expressed her gratitude for the love and appreciation.
“Ang sarap umuwi na ganito ang salubong… Thank you for the love & appreciation. I am beyond grateful… (song credit Beautiful in My Eyes by @jedmadelaofficial from my Universal Records album My Heart’s Journey) #kaysarapmagingpilipino #home 🇵🇭💛💙❤️”
One netizen with the handle, @nayi_ct1, welcomed Kris home. The netizen afterwards asked why major networks like ABS-CBN and GMA Network deprived viewers of a Kris Aquino feature.
“Welcome home, @krisaquino ! Thank you for making us proud! Why are major networks @abscbn and gma depriving us of celebrating your feat by their silence/non-coverage of your CRA premier? Are they under testraint and control? By their management? Or by invisible force?It is ironic that you are denied media freedom which was restored thru your dad’s sacrifice. @abscbn , how about some gratitude?“
Kris replied and asked the netizen to stop being negative. She noted how being featured in ‘Vanity Fair’ had already made up for it. She pointed out that TV5 sent MJ Marfori for the premiere. Kris wanted to show how it was more important that Filipinos felt happy on seeing her represent the country.
“@nayi_ct1 wag na maging negative. Honestly seeing myself in vanityfair.com beyond #kilig na. And it was @tv5manila that spent to send @mjmarfori to fly to LA & get accreditation from @wbpictures… walang mabuting dulot ang magalit or magtampo sa bawat perceived snub… ang importante maraming Filipinos worldwide felt good seeing me represent our country. 🇵🇭 “
Kris added that she sincerely felt the support from many online news sites. She continued that GMANetwork.com has been fair and consistent in positive coverage.
“If you sincerely feel what you posted how about saying thank you to @inquirerdotnet, @rappler, @pepalerts, @tv5manila for being super supportive? We can accomplish so much more by promoting those we love & those who generously support rather than giving attention to those who don’t appreciate us… in all fairness GMA ONLINE has really been very FAIR & consistent in giving me a lot of positive coverage. #ichooselove 🇵🇭💛💙❤️“
Other netizens, however, noted how Kris was not snubbed by major networks.
“Please get your fact straight before speculating. She was featured 2 days in a row in @tv_patrol since day one.”

“she was in TV patrol, star patrol..”
“i saw GMA News Tv and GMA News feature the red carpet appearance of @krisaquino”
