MANILA, Philippines – Amid a flurry of criticisms Manny Pacquiao received from a number of celebrities and the LGBT community over his homophobic remarks that compared same-sex couples to animals, the Sarangani congressman found another ally in actress KC Concepcion.
In an interview with reporters on Thursday, February 18, at her relaunching as Brand Ambassador of Natural Looks cosmetic products, Concepcion said Manny deserves forgiveness from those he may have offended; being someone who has brought great honor to the country and its people.
While Concepcion sympathizes with her friends in the LGBT circle, she said she is willing to forgive ‘Kuya Manny’ if his apology proved to be a sincere one.
“I have loved ones in the LGBT community that have their own feelings about the issue. They have been very good to me and their friends and their families. I love them and I feel for them,”InterAksyon’s Edwin P. Sallan quoted the 30-year-old actress-host as saying.
Concepcion added: “[But] as a Filipino, I will just try to remember everything that Kuya Manny did for our country.” (Click here to read more)
