Philippine News Today: 4 Kris Aquino moments filled with controversy

Kris Aquino, the sister of former President Benigno Aquino, is one of the most iconic media personality in the Philippines. Dubbed as the country’s Queen of All Media, Kris Aquino is a colorful ball of controversy, intrigue, and entertainment who has greatly impacted the Philippine pop culture.

Whatever Kris Aquino does, she is sure to snag headlines, and often times for being her outrageous self.

Here are 4 moments of the beloved Kris Aquino.

  1. Kris Aquino reveals cleavage in controversial dress

The Philippines is a conservative country when it comes to fashion. Therefore, it was no surprise that her outfit during the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) in 2012 garnered the outrage of the netizens.

Kris Aquino wore a green gown with a very DEAP neckline, showing her cleavage. Her dress was so outrageously controversial that netizens talked more about the gown than the winners of the MMFF awards night.

  1. Kris Aquino uses the presidential chopper

Being a sister to former President Benigno Aquino III apparently has its perks. To travel to a Liberal Party Political Sortie, Kris Aquino travelled in style in the presidential chopper.

However, this drew the ire of the netizens, with many saying that she was thick-faced and “pa-importante.” Kris Aquino was not the President nor a government official and therefore many questioned why she was using the Presidential chopper.

Many said this was a slap to the tax-payer’s money.

However, the President defended his sister, saying “Hindi ko rin nakita kung ano ‘yung pinuna nila. Tanong ko lang: siguro batid naman nang lahat na isa siya sa pinakamalaking individual taxpayer.”

  1. Kris threatens James Yap that her brother is the President

Again, Kris Aquino is fond of using the term “my brother is the president. During the peak of her fight with James Yap, she threatened the basketball star saying “Baka nakalimutan mo, may three years pa ang brother ko.” At that time, Kris Aquino accused James Yap of being unfaithful. She also accused the basketball star of making sexual advances on her. Clearly, Krissy is using the presidency as a tool to force her will. However, when asked about her statement, she explained that she did not seek help from her brother.

  1. Insensitive remark about a post-APEC sunburn

Being the President’s sister, Kris Aquino often has to mingle with Philippine politics. When the Philippines finally hosted the APEC summit in 2015, Kris was tasked with entertaining and accommodating the wives of high ranking officials of other countries among other VIP guests.
