Igorot in Viral Video Releases Official Statement After Alleged Shouting Incident w/ Jillian Robredo’s Camp

The Igorot resident in the viral video refused to apologize and belied the reports that he shouted at Vice President’s daughter Jillian Robredo.

Over the past few days, the video footage of an Igorot who went hysterical and shouting the supporters of Presidential Candidate Leni Robredo circulates online. The video garnered various reactions from social media users.

The incident happened last April 25, 2022, when the group of Jillian Robredo is roaming around Baguio City Public Market to endorse Leni Robredo to be the next president of the Philippines.

Unfortunately, an Igorot resident identified as Cliff Lewis can be seen shouting and scolding VP Robredo’s camp and supporters. “Dayuhan ka lang dito, mga Igorot kami,” Lewis reiterated.

Recently, Cliff Lewis released a statement regarding the incident and clarified some misunderstandings. He criticized several reports for giving misleading and false information to the public.

Lewis clarified that he did not attack Jillian and her colleagues. Kakampink supporters were allegedly blocking the hallway and even giving him a distasteful remark.

“Kasi po ito ang sinabi sa akin kahapon, noong sinabi ko po na ‘excuse po, padaan po kasi nagmamadali ako’ ang sagot sakin ay ‘wala akong pakialam, ang importante ay iboto mo si Leni’” Lewis said.

The guy said that he will never apologize for his action knowing he is right.

“Hindi naman po sana ako magiging bastos kung hindi na sila nagsalita at hinayaan nalang kaming dumaan, Hindi po ako humihingi ng tawad sa nangyari kahapon, dahil wala po akong ipaghihingi ng tawad,” Cliff added.
