- Jimmy Bondoc apologized to Angel Locsin in an interview for Mocha Uson’s blog
- He said that he had no intentions to hurt his fellow artists.
- He believes that both sides should be heard.
Jimmy Bondoc has apologized to Angel Locsin via an interview with Mocha Uson for the latter’s blog. This is after Angel called his taking delight in the possible closure of ABS-CBN and the subsequent loss of thousands of jobs as “pure evil.”
Bondoc clarified his Facebook post had nothing to do with Angel Locsin or any other celebrity. He added that the dispute should be talked over personally to avoid problems and misunderstandings.
“Una sa lahat, buong-buo po ang respeto ko sa inyo bilang babae, bilang kapwa entertainer. Ayoko kasi ng diskusyon na hindi harapan.
“Diyan po nagmumula ang maraming problema ng bayan natin. Hindi nakukuha ang buong side ni Ma’am Angel, at malamang hindi rin nakukuha yung buong side ko.”
Bondoc also apologized to other artists whom he might have offended with his rant.
“So ang message ko lang is, kung ano man yung personal na nasaktan sa kanya dun sa message ko at sa mga kapwa niyang artista, paumanhin po.”
He added that he hopes that the points he raised in his post will be answered as well.
“Sana, sagutin din nila yung totoong point ng post, which is bakit meron tayong ganitong sistema ng kapangyarihan sa media na kahit ano yata pwede na nilang sabihin. Kahit sinong sagasaan, kahit sinong mawalan ng trabaho, hindi ko po maintindihan yun.”
The singer even mentioned that he’s “just” a government employee.
“Ma’am, yun lang po yung point ko ma’am. Wag na kayong magalit sa akin ma’am. Talagang kawawa ako sa mga katulad ninyo, napakasikat ninyo, wala akong laban! Ako po’y hamak na government employee.”
Bondoc was appointed by President Rodrigo Duterte as Vice President for entertainment of the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR).
