“Gusto ko muna mag-publicly apologize kung may na-offend ako kahapon sa joke ko. Hindi ko naman naging intensyon na directly mag-offend. It was really towards Vice, it was a joke. Siguro dapat mas naging sensitive ako kung may mga issues. Kaya I just want to say sorry Maja”, said It’s Showtime co-host Anne Curtis in her brief apology to fellow Kapamilya star Maja Salvador.
Anne apologized for making a joke, which might have offended the Ina Kapatid Anak actress, during the “Sine Mo ‘To” segment of It’s Showtime last January 23.
In the show’s “Sine Mo ‘To” segment, Anne jokingly asked co-host Vice Ganda, “Maja ka ba? Maja-rot ka kasi.” “Maja-rot” is a play on the Tagalog word maharot or flirty.
It will be recalled that Maja was criticized, especially online for being romantically linked to Gerald Anderson, Kim Chiu’s former boyfriend.
