Willing Willie Controversy: Willie Revillame Apologizes for Humiliating a 6-year-old kid


What do we expect? After being lambasted on various social networking sites, the guy who apparently picked on a 6-year-old kid found somewhere in his stinky heart to apologize. Seriously?

In the official statement of Willie Revillame and his camp, it was said that they are extremely sorry that the segment allegedly hurt the feelings of other viewers.

According to Willie, they never intended to humiliated Jan-jan, or any other contestant of the show. They also reasoned out that they never persuaded the kid to perform and even the parents supported the idea.

“He appeared to be sad or even in tears, not because he was being forced to dance, but because he felt the dance was ‘serious’ and he was playing a role.  He did not want to smile because of his missing upper front teeth and because of the presence on the set of former basketball player Bonel Balingit who Jan-jan thought was a scary ‘giant,” part of the statement explained.

Jan-jan turned out to be the show’s laughing stock while dancing and silently sobbing.

Who accepts Revillame’s apology? Go jump off a building.
