Kris Aquino apologizes for APEC sunburn 'joke'

TV host-actress Kris Aquino on Saturday apologized for joking that her post-APEC sunburn has put her on equal footing with suffering commuters.

"I humbly apologize for my failed attempt at self deprecating humor Thursday night that came across as being spoiled and insensitive," the presidential sister posted on her Instagram account. "I'M SORRY..."

"In the future I will leave the joking to Vice Ganda, PROMISE," she added.

Her caption reads "Have a wonderful, stress free, love filled weekend ahead of you. #LoveLoveLove"

Last Thursday, Kris posted a photo showing her sunburnt skin, which she acquired after touring the spouses of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) leaders in Intramuros, Manila.

She called it "quits" with commuters who suffered from heavy traffic caused by road closures.

Netizens have since criticized Kris saying her remarks were insensitive and uncalled for.
