ACTRESS-turned-politician Cristina Gonzales-Romualdez apologized over her daughter Sofia's profanity-filled remark against vice presidential front-runner Camarines Sur Representative Leni Robredo.
In a Facebook post, the newly elected mayor of Tacloban City said that she does not approve of her daughter's word aimed at the vice presidential candidate.
She said Sofia is apologetic over what she posted on micro-blogging site, Twitter.
"In behalf of my daughter Sofia, I apologize for such words she tweeted about Leni. As a mother and most especially as a Christian I do not approve of such words. She is very apologetic and is learning," she wrote.
The 16-year-old posted "P*****i** leni b*bo naman yan walang alam yan t***i** nyo."
The tweet has since been deleted.
The former actress said that Leni, whom she met at the wake of the latter's husband, former interior secretary Jesse Robredo, does not deserve such words hurled by her daughter.
She added that Sofia already apologized and people should accept and understand her daughter.
"Sofia already apologized so I hope we all forgive and love her. She is still very young."
"My kids went through a lot during the disaster and witnessed everything that happened. We almost lost our lives so I have been always praying for my children to really get over that event in their lives. Thank you for understanding."
Romualdez is married to outgoing mayor of Tacloban City, Alfred Romualdez, the nephew of former first lady Imelda Marcos. (Sunnex)
