Lahat tayo ay biktima ng trapik, at kani-kaniyang paraan lang kung paano tayo mag-cope sa sitwasyon. Ang tanong po kasi during the interview —kung panonoorin at pakikinggan niyo ang buong clip— ay naka-tuon sa aking pamamaraan kung paano ko personal na itinatahak ang problemang ito ng ating lipunan, kaya’t sinagot ko naman iyon ayon sa kung ano ang totoo sa akin— at sa akin lamang. I just wanted to give a light take on my personal experience, but was misinterpreted. . . Hindi ko po nilalahat at lalu nang ginawang pangaral sa publiko ang aking pahayag. . . Kung sana’y naging mas responsable lang ang Philstar.com sa kanilang headline at sa hindi pag edit ng tanong sa umpisa ng original video, hindi ako ma-tatake out of context. . . Pinaninindigan ko po ang aking sagot and i take full responsibility, pero humihingi rin ako ng paumanhin sa mga nasaktan, nainis, napikon at kahit sa mga mema lang— hindi ko po nais na gawin ito sa inyo. Sa susunod, magiging mas maingat ako sa aking mga sinasabi, at sana ganoon din ang mga pahayagan na tinitingala ng nakararami. . . Kinikilala ko po ang hirap na pinagdaraanan ng mga Pilipino sa kalbaryong ibinibigay sa ating lahat ng trapik. Ang bawat minuto na nasasayang sa kalsada ay dapat na sana’y nagagamit natin para makapiling ang ating mga mahal sa buhay— wala pong may gusto nito. . . Peace everyone ❤️ . . PS. Hindi po ako super rich, gaya ng sabi ng Philstar.com Maykaya, opo, dahil pinaghirapan ko po yun.
Marian’s official statement translated in english:
“We are all victims of traffic, and we have our own ways of how we cope with the situation. The question they asked me during the interview, if you will watch and listen to the full clip carefully, the question was about my ways how i personally deal this problem (traffic).
That’s why i answered it truthfully, I just wanted to give a light take on my personal experience, but was misinterpreted.
I’m not particularly pertaining to everyone
and most of all i am not imposing it as a lesson to the public.
If only Philstar is more responsible with their headline and if they did not edited out the question in the original video, my answer will not be taken out of context.
I stand by my answer and i take full responsibility. I also want to apologize to the people who were hurt and annoyed, it was not my intention. I will be more careful next time and hopefully publications like philstar as well.
I acknowledge the hardship that my fellow filipinos are going through because of the worsening traffic. We could have use the time wasted because of the traffic to be with our love ones.
