Willie Revillame says sorry to the Aquino family

Willie Revillame was harshly criticized last Monday after being vocal on his show Wowowee that he was uncomfortable with the live feed of Cory Aquino's funeral march which was happening simultaneously with his show, most especially with the "Willie of Fortune" segment that day.

On air, Willie ordered the outright removal of the funeral procession's live streaming.

“Ano ba yan!!! Kung gusto n’yo pakita ‘yan, ‘yan na lang. Kung ako, ako lang. Nagsasaya kami dito sa show na 'to. Ayusin nyo yan!," Willie caught saying on TV.

Willie actually had a point. What he wanted was to cut the show off, so they could show the live streaming of the funeral march, just like what happened before on different instances (for example the release of a Red Cross who was held captive by the Abu Sayaff).

Maybe, the on-air request of Willie wasn't unacceptable for some televiewers.

Here's a video of Wowowee's Monday episode:

Earlier on his show that day, prior to that incident, Willie sang a song dedicated to Tita Cory.

Then yesterday, still on Wowowee, maybe after realizing somehow he offended the Aquino family and supporters, Willie apologized to those who were hurt with his previous statement.

“Sa sitwasyon na ito, kung may nasaktan ako, I’m sorry. Sa pamilya Aquino, alam ng buong pamilya Aquino, wala akong masamang intensyon doon,” he said.

He also explained that it was so uncomfortable for him to provide some laughter on the show while the funeral procession was also being shown.

With this, Joey De Leon, who's the #1 critic of Willie, reportedly fuming with anger once more at Willie.

Joey will for sure give his reaction on the issue this Saturday on his show Startalk.
