Batangas Governor Vilma Santos Receives Criticisms Because Of Kris Aquino's Instagram PostStar For All Seasons and Batangas Governor Vilma Santos-Recto drew flak from a post by Kris Aquino on Instagram. The post was a photo of the box of ensaymada given by Vilma and the accompanying letter.
Netizens noted that Vilma spelled a word wrong and also had grammatical errors. This is despite the fact that she has been serving as a public official for almost a decade.
Here was the content of Vilma's letter (published as is): "Dearest Kris, Thank you sooo much for believing in me. I truely appreciate it friend... Life is short... Enjoy it... Your are so bless... God is good. Smile :0 I Love You."
According to Kris' caption, she admires Vilma for her work in public service and the way she handles her personal relationships. She also admired her for being a mother to sons Luis and Ryan Christian and for being a loving wife to Senator Ralph Recto.
The next morning, Vilma texted Kris and told her she is being bashed on her Instagram because of the posting. But she said that it's okay because it only made her realized that she has more to learn.
She took all of it as constructive criticisms, and that she is only human after all and can commit mistakes.
"Sa mga bashers... Salamat po.. Again, thanks for believing in me. Until the next time..."
Kris apologized through text, and said she didn't think about the wrong spelling (or the grammar) because what mattered to her was the Star For All Season's kindness and the thought behind the card she sent.
She asked Vilma if it's okay to post her text, and the award-winning actress said it's okay.
On her caption, Kris said she continues to be a fan of Vilma because "she is BRAVE, she has a WONDERFUL SENSE OF HUMOR, she has WISDOM, and she is TRUTHFUL!"
"Above everything else, she remains HUMBLE! HINDI SYA PIKON KASI NGA ALAM NYA THAT HER LIFE IS GOOD. Her example will continue to inspire me for the rest of my life! ❤️❤️❤️"
