Willie Revillame Orders ABS-CBN to Remove Live Feed of Cory's Funeral Motorcade on Wowowee

Willie Revillame is getting a lot of criticism about the way he reacted when the live feed of Cory Aquino's motorcade was shown via split-screen on his show Wowowee last Monday afternoon.

According to a forwarded text message, "In Willie Revillame's show yesterday, dey wr showin a clip of Cory's motorcade sa inset. He suddenly freaks out on air & says "Ano ba yan!!! Kung gusto nyo pakita yan, yan na lang. Kung ako, ako lang. Nagsasaya kmi d2 sa show na 2. Ayusin nyo yan!(") It was disrespectful. Jus d other day hs boss Gabby Lopez profusely thankd Cory 4givin dem bak ABS-CBN. now Willie shuns her! Wat a disgrace! Pls pass so others wud kno."

But according to Willie, he meant no harm in his decision to remove the live feed of Cory's motorcade on his afternoon show. He just felt uncomfortable having a fun show while having the live coverage of the transfer of Tita Cory's body from La Salle Greenhills in San Juan to Manila Cathedral.

He said exactly during the show, "Kung ganyan, pakita na lang natin 'yan. Kasi nagsasaya kami dito, tapos... Masakit sa akin 'yan, e. Nagsasalita ako dito... 'yan, please. Sana maintindihan n'yo. Nagsasaya kami dito, papakita n'yo sa amin yun ang... di ba? Hindi tama, e. Okey? Hindi ba?

"Pangit! Hindi ho maganda sa atin. Nagsasalita, ipinapakita yung kabaong ni Tita Cory, hindi ba? Papano kami makapagsasaya, nahihirapan kami? I'm sorry ho, ha. Pero ako, totoo ako, e. 'Wag n'yo akong pagagalitan, kasi totoo ang gusto kong malaman...

"Pagkatapos ng show, ipakita n'yo ang gusto n'yong palabas. Kasi itong Wowowee, gusto ko... Hindi ba, at alam din ni Tita Cory 'yan dahil napasaya rin siya ng show na ito na laging masaya dito, ok?"

Willie also said his apology for ABS-CBN President Charo Santos-Concio, "Ma'am Charo, sorry. E nahihirapan ako ng ganyan, e."

On Tuesday episode of Wowowee, Willie apologized to those who were hurt with the way he acted the previous day.

"Sa sitwasyon na ito, kung may nasaktan ako, I�m sorry. Sa pamilya Aquino, alam ng buong pamilya Aquino, wala akong masamang intensyon doon," he said.
