Following the criticism that he posted, Enchong Dee says sorry to Rep. Bautista
Actor Enchong Dee issued an apology to Congresswoman Claudine Bautista for the criticisms against the Drivers United for Mass Progress and Equal Rights-Philippines Taxi Driver Association (DUMPER-PTDA) Representative that he posted on his social media.
The name of the lawmaker became a trending topic online when her photos surfaced showing her “lavish” wedding in Balesin and she was wearing a Michael Cinco gown. With this, Rep. Bautista received a lot of criticisms from the online community. Even celebrities aired their thoughts through their social media platforms.
One of the celebrities who criticized the newlywed congresswoman was Enchong Dee. Based on the article in Inquirer, the actor posted this on his Twitter account: “The money for the commuters and drivers went to her wedding. Let’s not prolong this conversation and don’t say otherwise.”
On August 17, the actor changed his tone. From being a critic, he became apologetic. In his Twitter post, he said, “My apologies.” Then, he shared a screenshot of the message he wrote on Tuesday night.
The actor admitted that his tweet against the representative was reckless. He said that he will take the full responsibility of what he did.
“With deep regret, I would like to apologize to Congresswoman Claudine Bautista , her husband, their families, and the Dumper Partylist,” Enchong Dee said. He added that he reacted based on impulse and without thinking what would be the harm that will do of what he tweeted.
The actor also stressed that it is a part of being a dutiful citizen to fact check every statement posted on social media so that it will not create sensationalism and spread of false news.
Enchong added that he will take this opportunity to reflect and to improve himself in order to be more discerning in matters like this.
