Billy, Coleen humingi ng sorry sa ginawang prenup shoot sa Africa: Nagkulang kami!
BASAG na basag ang trip ng engaged couple na sina Billy Crawford at Coleen Garcia dahil sa kanilang pre-nuptial shoot na ginawa sa Ethiopia, Africa na ipinost sa kanilang Instagram account.
Kinastigo ng ilang sektor at netizens ang paggamit sa photo shoot ng mga babae at batang Ethiopian dahil ayon sa kanila ito ay “offensive,” insensitive” at “distatesful”.
Naglabas na ng statement sina Billy at Coleen na ipinadala nila sa showbiz reporter ng Channel 2 na si MJ Felipe na ipinost din sa ilang on-line sites.
“It’s sad that the tendency is to jump to conclusion, but we understand din kasi nga they were not there to witness everything. And looking from their perspective, we do still see where they are coming from. Completely.
“It might not even be about the photos per se, but more on how it comes across and what it could represent.
“Being public figures, dito kami nagkulang and we admit we could have done better.
“Kaya, we do apologize for how it might have translated, and we’re sorry again to those we have offended.”
Ipinabatid din ni Billy na hindi opisyal prenup photo shoot ang naganap sa nasabing bansa kungdi imbitado sila ng Ethiopian Airlines na bumisita at i-promote ang tourism doon. Meron din daw silang tour guide roon.
“He took us around and made suggestions for the shoot, such as including the priests of Lalibela in our photos because they wanted people to see.
“We based our layouts off of some of their suggestions. The locals were so kind, warm, and welcoming, and they love meeting tourists. They even gave us items of clothing to add to our shoot, for which they showed so much support,” pahayag pa ni Billy.
