TV 5 News reporter Jen Calimon was grilled by netizens after posting an insensitive Facebook post (it has since been deleted) about Escolta fire 2 days ago.
While covering the situation in Escolta, Manila, where P20-M structural damage estimated, Calimon posted a photo with a caption: “Uuwing masaya after 3 live reports. Salamat mga kaibigan sa MPD sa pagkumbinsing may ilalaang mas magandang story sa akin si Lord. I love my beat!! #manila #EscoltaFire #hugot.”
Her controversial Facebook post have received mixed reactions, with some saying she came across as too insensitive, while others were quick to defend her.
Calimon posted an apology, saying:
“Patawad kung hindi ako naging sensitibo pero hindi po iyon ang intensyon at ibig kong sabihin. Sobrang masakit na po ang mga sinabi sa akin dahil wala naman akong ginawa at intensyong masama. Salamat sa mga kaibigang nagmamalasakit at nakakaunawa.”
