Mariel Padilla Apologizes Following Backlash For Doing ‘IV Drip’ In Senate Office

Mariel Padilla Sorry Over ‘IV Drip’ In Robin’s Office

MARIEL PADILLA – Following online criticism, Mariel Rodriguez issued an apology on Sunday to both the Senate and the public for undergoing a Vitamin C drip in the Senate office.

The photos of Mariel Padilla receiving an IV drip in her husband Senator Robin Padilla’s senate office sparked widespread criticism. Many were dismayed that the esteemed setting of the senate appeared to be transformed into a beauty salon or skincare clinic due to the treatment.

Mariel uploaded a photo during the session, prominently featuring the office’s official seal in the background. However, she promptly removed the pictures after they went viral online.

Senator Robin Padilla apologized for any negative perceptions surrounding the images, stating, “Kung may nakita po silang masama sa larawan na ‘yan, paumanhin po.”

In an interview with Bandera, Mariel addressed the issue, aligning her comments with her husband’s statement. Despite being aware of the criticism, she turned the situation around by conducting a live selling session while undergoing the IV drip treatment as a response to the online backlash.

Senator Nancy Binay, Chairperson of the Senate Committee on Ethics and Privileges, also weighed in on the IV drip issue. Binay emphasized the need for people to exercise caution and mindfulness in their actions.
