Actress-turned-politician Cristina Gonzales-Romualdez turned to Facebook to apologize for her daughter's Twitter post against leading vice-presidential candidate Leni Robredo.
On the said Twitter post, Cristina's 16-year-old daughter Sofia used foul words to criticize the Camarines Sur representative and administration's VP bet.
Note: This post has been deleted, and the account has been deactivated.
On her FB post earlier today May 11, the newly-proclaimed mayor of Tacloban City said, “I apologize for such words she tweeted about Leni.
“As a mother and most especially a Christian, I do not approve such words.”
Cristina said that her daughter is “apologetic and is learning.”
She added, “Sofia is 16 so I believe she didn't realize what she was doing.”
Following her Twitter post, Sofia also apologized and explained why she posted the anti-Leni tweet:
“What I said about Leni was out of frustration and anger. I'm human and I make mistakes too, I'm sorry if I offended anyone.”
Her Twitter account has since been deactivated.
Meanwhile, Cristina said on her FB post that Leni “does not deserve such words.”
She also pleaded to the public to accept her daughter's apology.
“SOFIA ALREADY APOLOGIZED SO I HOPE WE ALL FORGIVE AND LOVE HER SHE IS STILL VERY YOUNG,” Cristina wrote on her Facebook post.
“MY KIDS WENT THROUGH A LOT DURING THE DISASTER And WITNESSED EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED.
“THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING.”
Cristina is the wife of outgoing Tacloban City mayor Alfred Romualdez, who is a cousin of vice-presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos.
