Disappointed that Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson has refused to apologize, Kris Aquino on Wednesday called on Special Assistant Bong Go to fulfill a request she had earlier made to the official.
In a live online video, Aquino expressed disappointment at Uson's refusal to apologize for posting a video comparing Kris' father, the late Sen. Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino Jr., being kissed to President Rodrigo Duterte's controversial video where he kissed a Filipino worker in South Korea.
"Nanawagan na lang ako sa isang taong nakinig sa akin... Sir Bong Go, alam kong aabot ito sa 'yo. Hinihingi ko sa 'yo 'yung sinabi ko na ikaw lang ang may kapangyarihan na gawin 'yon. Sana gawin mo, dahil umaasa ako sa'yo. Sana po pansinin ninyo," said Aquino.
"Sa buong salitang ito, wala kayong batikos na narinig. Hindi iyan ang pagpapalaking ginawa sa akin," Aquino added.
Aquino did not disclose any details about her request from Go. She also expressed hope that Go's support and sympathy for her was true.
"Sir Bong sana hindi pang-presscon lang, sana totoo 'yung sinabi mong intindihin natin si Kris, sana 'yung pagkakakilala ko sayo... I have known you for eight years and I have said this to you, binasa mo 'yung text ko 'di ba? Sinabi ko you are a good man and I respect you and I would even campaign for you," she added.
Aquino had slammed Uson for the government official's posts taking shots at Ninoy and former president Corazon Aquino, Kris' late mother.
Earlier on Wednesday, Go said Uson would apologize for the incident, adding that he and Duterte had already said sorry to Aquino.
But in a video posted on her Facebook page, Uson refused to apologize, saying the issue was not about Kris Aquino.
Aquino told Uson the government official "won" their tiff.
"Mocha, you win because you hurt me and I think that's what you wanted to do. Nanalo ka dahil patuloy mong inaapak-apakan ang pagkatao at alaala ng dalawang tao na pinakamamahal ko," Aquino said.
"You are right. This was not about Kris Aquino, this is a reminder that Filipinos still love and respect Cory and Ninoy Aquino," she said. —Anna Felicia Bajo/JST, GMA News
