Claudine Barretto laughed off her viral video wherein she cursed because she tripped onstage during a live episode of ASAP.
The ABS-CBN actress looked back on this incident during an interview on the “Showbiz Pa More” segment on Jeepney TV.
Claudine commented on the video of her saying "p*tang*na" on ASAP Mania on April 13, 2003.
In the video, Claudine was delivering a spiel and walking on stage when she tripped and blurted out, "Ay, p*tang*na!" She regained her composure and said "sorry" right after the incident.
According to Claudine, she felt grateful that she did not get suspended from the ABS-CBN noontime show.
"Oy, excuse me at least nauna ako sa YouTube. Tao lang po, nagmumura rin,
"Alam mo, after nun, pumunta ako sa booth ni Mister M [Johnny Manahan, director of ASAP], tawa siya nang tawa, akala ko masu-suspend ako ng MTRCB, thank God hindi. Pero at least masasabi ko nauna ako sa YouTube,” narrated Claudine.
MTRCB refers to the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board.
The Kapamilya actress said that she was simply being herself at the time.
"Iyon talaga ako. Ikaw ba naman, matapilok!"
She then pointed out: "At least nakita nila ang totoong Claudine.
"Not exactly everybody pero siguro kapag nangyari rin sa inyo nun, yun rin ang masasabi niyo minsan. Yun lang ang maganda kasi wala akong image so na-accept naman ng tao."
