Doris Bigornia breaks silence, apologizes to Richard Lim

ABS-CBN news personality Doris Bigornia has broken her silence and apologized to Richard Lim for her behavior during The Script concert.

The "Mutya ng Masa" host posted the following message on her Facebook account late Wednesday afternoon, April 22:

Today, I am breaking my silence to air my side and to set the record straight on an article posted on Facebook by Mr. Richard Lim complaining about my behavior while watching a rock concert by The Script last Friday.

When The Script came out on stage, many among the audience stood up and welcomed the band. Like them and many others, my daughter and I rushed to the front or the mosh pit to get close to our favorite band, which is typical in all rock concerts.

I apologize to Mr. Lim if our actions caused any inconvenience or upset him and his son in any way. It was certainly not our intention to do so.

However, it is not true that I made a harsh statement when Lim complained that his son was hyperventilating. Knowing the pain of losing a loved one, I would never have uttered such an insensitive statement.

After the concert, my children and I were happily talking about how much we enjoyed the show when Mr. Lim came and confronted us. When Mr. Lim said hurtful words to my children, I had to step in. My maternal instincts took over. That argument should not have taken place."

The controversy involving Bigornia made headlines on mainstream and social media sites after Lim's lengthy post on Facebook titled "The Dark Side of Doris Bigornia" went viral on Tuesday, April 21.

Lim, who is said to be a martial arts expert—a karate-dō black belter/sensei, said Bigornia showed a "conduct unbecoming of a media personality" during the concert of the Irish pop-rock group at the Mall of Asia Arena last Friday, April 17.
