"I am deeply sorry for my reaction."

Ito ang bahagi ng official statement ng ABS-CBN actor na si Tony Labrusca hinggil sa insidenteng diumano’y paninigaw at pagmumura niya sa isang immigration officer sa NAIA Terminal 1, nitong January 3, Huwebes.

Inilabas ng 23-anyos na Filipino-American ang kanyang statement via Twitter ngayong Biyernes ng gabi, January 4.

Sa statement, ikinuwento ni Tony ang kanyang bersiyon ng pangyayari.

STORIES WE ARE TRACKING

Inamin ni Tony na hindi malinaw sa kanya ang tungkol sa Balikbayan Visa, na tinatanggap niyang pagkukulang niya.

Dahil walang dual citizenship ang aktor, nabigyan lamang siya ng 30 days na manatili sa Pilipinas.

Ang Balikbayan Visa ay pribilehiyo na iginagawad sa isang Balikbayang Filipino upang makapanatili ito ng isang taon sa bansa.

Ang privilege na ito ay maaaring maibigay sa foreign spouse at mga anak ng isang Balikbayan.

Pero ang kondisyon dito ay kailangang dumating ng bansa ang foreign spouse at anak kasabay ng Balikbayan.

Dumating sa bansa si Tony, pero hindi nito kasama ang ama at ina na maaari sanang maggarantiya sa kanyang pananatili sa bansa.

Si Tony ay anak ng aktor na si Boom Labrusca at ni Angel Jones.

Pag-amin ni Tony sa kanyang pagkakamali: "I admit I was a bit frustrated and that I asked why I was only given 30 days to stay in the country this time.

"I was unaware of the policy that because I was not with my mother, I did not qualify for a Balikbayan stamp.

"It was very upsetting for me. And I’m sorry that I somehow took my frustrations out on the Officer.”

Pero itinanggi ni Tony ang akusasyong nagmura siya at nagyabang na isa siyang artista, gaya ng mga lumabas sa social media.

Aniya, "But never did I ever call anyone stupid, nor an idiot much less brag about being a celebrity."

Sa huli, aminado si Tony na hindi siya dapat nagpadala sa emosyon nang nakipagdiskusyon sa immigration officer.

"My biggest mistake perhaps was letting my emotions get the better of me and again I’m sorry."

Narito ang kabuuang statement ni Tony hinggil sa isyu:

"I want to extend my sincerest apology to the superior Immigration Officer (I.O.) who was on duty and I had a talk with yesterday morning, 03 Jan 2019.

"After lining up and crossing the immigration, I went up to the superior IO and we ended up going inside an enclosed space inside her office to discuss privately.

"I admit I was a bit frustrated and that I asked why I was only given 30 days to stay in the country this time. I was unaware of the policy that because I was not with my mother, I did not qualify for a Balikbayan stamp.

"It was very upsetting for me. And I’m sorry that I somehow took my frustrations out on the Officer.

"But never did I ever call anyone stupid, nor an idiot much less brag about being a celebrity.

"I know for a fact that the officer is merely doing her job. My biggest mistake perhaps was letting my emotions get the better of me and again I’m sorry.

“It was a long flight from Canada and while it is not a perfect excuse, I would like to start this year fresh both in my life and the people I’ve encountered with. Once again, I am deeply sorry for my reaction.—Tony Labrusca.”
