Kapamilya actress and host Toni Gonzaga addressed the controversy concerning her hosting style during the Binibining Pilipinas 2015 coronation night on Sunday.
Gonzaga came under fire on social media for her “informal” style of hosting particularly when she cracked jokes during the pageant’s question and answer portion.
Among the critics of Gonzaga was Binibining Pilipinas-Universe 2000 Nina Alagao, who referred to the actress’ hosting as “over-confident almost to the point of arrogant.”
During the press conference for her upcoming Star Cinema movie “You’re The Boss” on Monday, the veteran PBB host apologized to those offended by her hosting but explained to the media that she was instructed to make it some “fun, light and ease the tension, especially during the Q and A portion.”
“First of all, for those who weren’t amused or didn’t like what they saw on Sunday, I am humbly asking for your forgiveness if I have offended or I have maligned or I have hurt any one of you.”
