Kris Aquino recently slammed her former partner, actor Phillip Salvador, for participating in a joke made by senatorial bet Christopher “Bong” Go at her expense.
As reported on Inquirer, the issue sparked earlier this week, when Go, who was with Salvador at a campaign event, joked that the actor is an “adopted father of Davao City” because he left behind four children in the city.
He added that during Salvador’s heyday, the actor was able to “fool” Kris Aquino, who gave birth to their son, Josh.
Go had since apologised for his joke, saying no harm done.
In response to the issue, Aquino took to Facebook live on Wednesday to express her frustration with Salvador, writing, “I hope you thought of that line, ‘You managed to fool Kris Aquino’. What does that make of your son? The product of your deceit?”
“I hope you remember that in the midst of your campaign, there’s a 23-year-old boy who is special, who is autistic, who watches you, and I’m directing this message to Phillip Salvador,” she said, stressing that Josh is a person who “does not see bad in the world.”
“And then you turn it into a joke? You make a punch line out of ‘Kris Aquino was fooled’? I’ve been quiet for so long because I thought you were a good man… But this is wrong. It’s bad enough that you seemed to have forgotten about Josh. But that’s not a big deal because I’ve done a good job raising him. But it’s wrong that you make a joke out of my son,” she said, adding that she made the mistake of falling for him.
