Senator Manny Pacquiao explained why he joined and chatted with Instagram celebrity Arzaylea Rodriguez during a live session with her on the said social media app. This, after some netizens maliciously screen captured his comments on the live chat.
In an interview with the press that ABS-CBN News posted on Twitter, Manny narrated what happened.
“Yes, yes, yes. Ako ‘yun. Actually, ‘pag open ko ng Instagram ko… May nakita akong live so pinindot ko. ‘Pag pindot ko, mag-appear ka kasi ‘dun. ‘Pag panoorin mo siya sa live niya, mag-appear ka na Manny Pacquiao has joined your live. So sabi niya, ‘Manny Pacquiao [inaudible], hello.’ So nag-hello ako… Sana hindi pa na-erase ‘yung video para maliwanagan sila. Tapos tinatanong niya ako, are you in the Philippines? Sabi ko nandito ako, where are you from? ‘Yun lang.”
He said that he replied because the 22-year-old online personality talked to him.
“Lahat naman pwede makipag-usap sa’kin live, eh. Wala naman malisya ‘dun. In fact, ‘yun nga lang ‘yun. Tignan mo, gano’n lang. ‘Pag tapos niyang sumagot, eh ‘di wala na,” Manny said.
