“Tao po ako, hindi po ako Igorot.”
This joke uttered by Candy Pangilinan during her May 9 show in Baguio City drew strong condemnations from the Igorot community, prompting the comedienne to issue a public apology.
Pangilinan, who is now being accused of “racial murder” by message board posters, admitted that it was “irresponsible” and “careless” of her to make fun of “our Igorot brothers and sisters.”
Hope that they will forgive Candy for what she have said and done. We all do make mistakes after all.
