Marian Rivera said she was misinterpreted after saying her piece on Manila’s alarming traffic issue.

Kapuso primetime queen Marian Rivera took to Instagram earlier today to clarify her take on the country’s alarming traffic issue. 

During her recent press conference as Waltermart ambassadress, Marian was asked about her opinion on Manila’s heavy traffic. And in the said event, Marian mentioned that the hours one spends in the midst of traffic jam can be turned around to one’s advantage by using it as a “me time.”

Her response, which was also recorded on video, was published by Philstar.com.

Some Netizens didn’t take her piece lightly. Hence, the mother of two, despite staying firm with her answer, apologized right away for those who are offended by her opinion. 

And aside from clarifying and apologizing to the public, Marian also defended herself from being misinterpreted by revealing the full question she was asked and by giving context to her answer. 

“Lahat tayo ay biktima ng trapik, at kani-kaniyang paraan lang kung paano tayo mag-cope sa sitwasyon.” Marian wrote in her IG post. “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.”

She added, “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.”

Marian then promised to be careful the next time she comments on sensitive issues and that she hopes that journalists, in return, will be more responsible in creating articles involving opinions of celebrities. 

“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 ❤️.”

To end her post, she also pointed out that everything she has now, she definitely worked hard for.

“Hindi po ako super rich, gaya ng sabi ng Philstar.com Maykaya, opo, dahil pinaghirapan ko po yun.”
