bench Tuesday, September 30, 2014
Coco Martin has released his official statement about the controversial segment, "The Animal Within Me," in the recent Bench fashion show titled "The Naked Truth". The statement was released through his legal counsel, Atty. Lorna Kapunan in a press conference held Tuesday afternoon, September 30.
In the statement released to the media, Coco Martin expressed his apology and requested the public for understanding. Coco equally felt bad about the incident and saddened at the thought he unwittingly offended the public.
Further, Coco and his camp explained they were not involved in the conceptualization of the production of The Naked Truth show nor the segment "The Animal Within Me" as he has an existing contract with Bench to model its apparels and to oblige him to appear in fashion shows.
In the end, Coco humbly asked for the public's understanding and assured he will no longer allow to be obliged to participate in a similar sensitive portrayal.
