“Kim initiated the meeting where she explained that the controversial video was not taken along EDSA but in a parking lot adjacent to a road. Kim also clarified that the car is not moving when the 5-seconder video was taken,” it further stated.

Star Magic said MMDA, which reminded Kim “to always adhere strictly to traffic rules and regulations,” accepted her clarification.

"The MMDA accepted Kim’s explanation and although SHE DID NOT COMMIT ANY TRAFFIC VIOLATION with her act, GM Garcia still reminder her to always adhere strictly to traffic rules and regulations."

In her latest post on Instagram, Kim thanked GM Garcia for listening to her side of the story.  She also asked people to stop spreading fake news that will cause more problems for officials in the government, who currently have their hands full because of the pandemic.

"Thank you to GM Jojo Garcia for giving me a few minutes of your time early this morning. My team and I initiated the quick interview just to clear both sides to that π—™π—”π—žπ—˜ π—‘π—˜π—ͺ𝗦 that is going around social media. It is clearly stated that 𝗑𝗒 π—©π—œπ—’π—Ÿπ—”π—§π—œπ—’π—‘ was done. To people, please stop spreading fake news. This is a hard time for all of us. Ang daming pinoproblema ng MMDA ngayon. GCQ na, there are people who need proper information and not fake news. Mas maraming balita po ang mas kailangan pag tuunan ng pansin rather than spread false stories and call the attention of the MMDA. Wag ganun classmates. Marami silang problema ngayon. Let’s focus on ourselves, to stay healthy, strong and never lose hope and faith."
