Toni Gonzaga Says Sorry for Binibining Pilipinas Hosting Snafu
After pointing the blame to organizers who gave her 'specific instructions' on how to host the event. TV host Toni Gonzaga has officially apologized for her Binibining Pilipinas hosting style which Pinoys on Twitter were quick to point out as offensive and inappropriate for such a glam event
“First of all I want to say thank you very much to the committee of Binibining Pilipinas for the opportunity to host such a wonderful event kasi first time kong ma-experience ‘yung ganong kasayang crowd, ka-wildna audience and it was definitely a memorable experience to me. To those who were not pleased, siyempre po do’n po muna sa hindi natuwa and hindi naibigan ang napanood nila nong Sunday, I am humbly asking for an apology kung I have offended or I have hurt anyone of you but it was never my intention because prior to the show I was instructed po to make the show fun, light and ease the tension especially in the Q and A portion. So it was never my intention, again, it was instructed for me to host that way, to make it lively and fun of course in the spirit of the celebration of Binibining Pilipinas coronation night and ‘yun po siguro ‘yung stand ko don. I don’t want to miss this opportunity to thank everyone, ‘yung mga friends ko po from the press, my friends in the industry who have been defending me and nagsasalita ng good and kind words sa akin, maraming, maraming salamat po. I really and truly appreciate that from the bottom of my heart. And also I would like to thank the Binibining Pilipinas committee for commending the job I did last Sunday, maganda po ‘yung mga sinasabi nila sa akin. Actually even the special events they texted me with very nice and encouraging words and I am very thankful for that. In the spirit of beauty pageants, let’s end the issue in world peace.” - Toni Gonzaga
Toni Gonzaga's apology came a day after beauty queen Nina Ricci Alagao's apology.
Nina Alagao was one of the celebs who took to Twitter and called out Toni Gonzaga on how inappropriate the TV host was.
