MANILA, Philippines – Maria Jerika Ejercito, daughter of former President and now Manila Mayor Joseph “Erap” Estrada, lambasted TV host-actress and presidential sister Kris Aquino for being a ‘bully who cannot handle the truth.’
In her Facebook account on Wednesday, Jerika shared a link to an article with the headline, “Kris Aquino defends brother, doesn’t seem to understand duties of the President.” She also said in her post that Kris is ‘brutally honest day in and day out but cannot handle the truth herself.’
Jerika pertained to Kris’ defense to those who criticized her brother, President Benigno Aquino III, regarding the 44 slain police commandos in the Mamasapano clash. Kris said that for as long as people denounce her brother, she will defend him.
During the hype of the Fallen 44, Kris even unfollowed in her Instagram account co-stars Judy Ann Santos, Ogie Alcasid and Regine Velasquez because of their ‘hurtful’ posts. She re-followed them later on after mending spites.
“Don’t dish it out if you can’t handle it. Sheesh…every night she bullies her guests on a&a (Aquino and Abunda Tonight) and every morning does it all over again on her show cleverly named (KrisTV) her poor guests publicly humiliated… she feels entitled to be BRUTALLY HONEST day in, day out… but obviously cannot handle the truth herself,” Jerika wrote on Facebook.
Her post went viral and garnered over 19,000 likes from netizens as of posting time.
The outspoken celebrity also posted another link entitled, “Kris Aquino: Champion of Silence.” In here she captioned, “In this case… the latter is most appropriate,” pertaining to the article’s subhead, “Silence is golden and sometimes so is crap.”
