Arnold Clavio responds

Just now, GMA News released a statement from one of its key members of its news corps, Arnold Clavio.

Mga igan, nakakalungkot na may negatibong reaksyon ang naging pahayag ko tungkol sa Philippine Azkals kaugnay ng sexual harassment complaint ni Ms. Cristy Ramos. Wala po akong ganoong intensyon. Ang isyu po rito ay sexual harassment at kung may nagamit man po akong mga salita na hindi angkop, nagpapakumbaba po ako at humihingi ng pang-unawa. Dun naman po sa mga kasama kong nanindigan laban sa sexual harassment, maraming salamat po. Seryoso pong isyu ito na dapat bantayan.

Translation (my version): It saddens me that there has been a negative reaction based on my comments about the Philippine Azkals regarding the sexual harassment complaint of Ms. Cristy Ramos. I did not intend it to go that way. The issue is about the sexual harassment case, and if I may have used any inappropriate language, I humbly ask for your understanding. To those who support the fight against sexual harassment, thank you. This is a subject matter that needs to be focused on.

To fully understand the context of what he said, here is the actual video:

You may choose to frame it to what you want it to be frame, for as long as you heard both ends of the story.
