“Gusto ko talaga mag-apologize dahil hindi naman talaga ako ‘yan, that is not my character,” Bautista said, in a phone-patch interview on GMA News TV’s “Balitanghali.” GMA Network

“It’s just that, bago magpa-interview, bigla siyang gumanon [nag-pose] sa likod ko, nabigla ako, and at first I was scared, kinalma ko nalang muna sarili ko, then I realized na binabastos niya ang authorities ng bansa natin, even the laws,” he added. GMA Network

He said this after Commission on Human Rights (CHR) chairperson Loretta Ann “Etta” Rosales criticized the mayor for slapping the suspect – identified through his driver’s license as Xu Zhen Zhi – who refused to answer the mayor’s question. GMA Network
