Former actress Jackie Forster called out PBA star Arwind Santos over his controversial monkey gesture toward TNT import Terrence Jones during the Comissioner's Cup Finals Wednesday night, August 14.
On Instagram this Thursday, August 15, Jackie called the San Miguel Beermen veteran “ignorant" and needing a “b*tch slap" for mocking Terrence, a person of African-American descent, in a derogatory manner.
"Please use your money to go travel the world so you learn to undo all the damage you have inside your heart. If you also knew how much racism Filipinos face in all corners of the world you would have more empathy and understanding... WE TOO ARE BROWN!" said Jackie.
"Money obviously doesn’t buy class. This kind of behavior upsets me so much. Unapologetic pa?" she added, referring to Arwind's previous statement saying he's "not sorry" for "simply playing mind games" on Terrence.
Jackie, who is formerly married to a cager, Benjie Paras, and whose son Kobe Paras is a basketball player for the UP Fighting Maroons, also called the attention of The Philippine Basketball Association to suggest that Arwind be penalized for his actions.
"Thank you PBA for the sanction but maybe a steep fine will also help them think twice (when men under pressure have outbursts - look deeper at the issues)," she said.
Her advice did not go unnoticed, as various reports confirmed this Friday that Arwind has been slapped a P200,000 fine by the Association, on top of the required community service and counseling for the incident.
